    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact 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.

      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

      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.

            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.

                      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!
