      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

      While it still does the job drying my thin hair, I noticed this dryer puts out way less air than my previous dryer. I would steer clear of this one if you have thick hair. The saving grace of this dryer is that my hair is noticeably sleeker after using it compared to my previous one

        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

        I use this blow dryer almost every day. It dries my thick hair within at least 2 minutes. I used to hate blow drying my hair because my old blow dryer took at least 10 minutes to blow dry my hair. Now I look forward to blow drying my hair. It leaves it looking slick and smooth. It looks incredibly healthy when it's really not. The price for this blow dryer was definitely worth it. I absolutely love this blow dryer.

          I was looking for a compact dryer that would carry the power of a full size. This one does not. It would work for traveling, but is not what I want for everyday use with thick hair. I wanted to love it, but it just does not get hot enough.

            This dryer is perfect for me. I have fine, mid-length hair, and this dryer dries it very quickly. It is lightweight and easy to use holding by the neck or the handle; which makes it easy to dry all over my head. The toggles are on the side of the handle, which makes it very easy to change from Cool - Warm - Hot air or Low - Med - High flow.
            The accessories go on easily and work effortlessly. I also love the color - the sleek, light purple is sophisticated and still fun. Love this dryer and highly recommend!

                Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

                I purchased and returned 3(!) different dryers -- a $119, $99, and $79 before trying this one. The others were either too heavy, not enough power or just too awkward to use. I bought this one on a whim in the store after returning the last one because I figured I tried every other price point, let me try one on the less expensive end. Boy, was I surprised. The dryer is lightweight. The power buttons are easy to use and is enough power to dry my thick wavy hair in a decent amount of time. I'm happy with this purchase and definitely recommend it.

                  Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

                  I was worried about this product from the beginning, because of the price. I read the online reviews to help me make a decision on a hairdryer that I could afford. This blow dryer seems to dry my hair faster than my old dryer, and my hair is a lot smoother. That's a big plus for me because I have frizzy hair.
                  I would recommend this product.

                      The dryer is not loud but it is not a silent dryer. It is quieter than most.

                      A:

                      The John Frieda Dryer is not dual voltage, so you would need both a converter and adapter to use this dryer in another country. However, this dryer is smaller than other Conair dryers so it would work well for traveling!
