      I like this dryer just fine. However,
      I think I would rather have a round concentrated than the oblong.

        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

        I first used this dryer at a friend's house out in California a few weeks ago & jokingly told her "don't be surprised if it ends up in my bag when I leave." In fact, it was the first thing I went to buy the day after I got back.
        I have super thick hair that soaks up water like a sponge. Even getting a long pixie cut didn't seem to help my dry time since I still had to use the hottest setting & fastest speed. So, to find a hair dryer that I can use on the warm setting & low speed is amazing!

          I always look for a small, light weight dryer as it takes a long time to dry my thick wavy hair and this has been very good. The controls are well placed and easy to switch from high to low or change heat settings. I intend on buying another one to have on hand when this one wears out!

            Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

            I really wanted to keep this hairdryer because it was lightweight and had a short barrel, which is easier on my arms. But unfortunately it tended to dry out my hair even though it was ionic. So I had to keep a more expensive ionic model that had a slightly longer barrel, was a little louder, and slightly heavier.

                      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

                      Leaves hair silky smooth, but don't like the air flow concentrator. It has holes on each side that allows air to escape and tangles hair.

                          A:

                          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.
