      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

      This dryer doesn't get that hot at all. It's fine because my hair is thin but anyone with thick hair would hate it. The placement of the buttons is TERRIBLE, as I hit the buttons and change the settings at least 3 times every time I use the dryer. I would not recommend this product.

            Great lightweight dryer! Easy to hold in one hand while styling w/ brush in the other. I have thin hair and high & low speeds work great!

                    Finally, a drier that doesn't frizz out my perm. It keeps individual curls, and helps get that "wiry, thready look" that I have been trying to achieve.

                          This is the first hairdryer I've purchased in about ten + years and I was amazed and how lightweight, yet powerful this little guy was. My old dryer took me almost an hour to dry my hair this one takes 15 to 20 mins.

                                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!

                                The John Frieda Compact Dryer is smaller in size than the John Frieda Volume Dryer. The John Frieda Compact Dryer also has a DC motor while the John Frieda Volume Dryer has an AC motor. The John Frieda Volume dryer includes 2 concentrators and the John Frieda Compact Dryer includes one concentrator.
