Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

I have straight, fine, just below shoulder blonde hair, but a lot of it. I blow dry my hair to get the maximum volume: upside down and then clipped up, blow drying sections at a time with a large roller brush on high heat. I use the low setting for air flow, but would like to have another setting with even less power so it wouldn't blow my hair around so much. This dryer has a diffuser, but I dislike diffusers because they are bulky and awkward and you can't concentrate the heat where you need it easily. I like how lightweight this dryer is (most lightweight dryers don't give you enough power or the option for separate heat and airflow). I don't like the rocker switches located on the side of the handle - they get turned off by my palm when I don't want them to be turned off.

Hot But Not So Hot

Pros

  • Strong Blower

Cons

  • Not Enough Heat

Best Uses

  • At Home

Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

Being that this blow dryer is rated at such a high wattage- I really expected a lot more heat. The blower is incredibly strong and it moves a lot of air, however, On the high heat setting it really doesn't get hot enough to do a very efficient job.

    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

    good dryer, leaves my hair feeling healthy not dried out or frizzed. There are only two things that could have gotten it a 5 rating: dual voltage for global travel and a little lighter. Although I might be a little biased on the weight since I've been using a small travel dryer for a long time and it weighted next to nothing!

        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

        Plenty of heat and air. Good price. And unlike my previous, expensive dryer, there's no static electricity in my hair anymore. The only reason I didn't give it a "5" rating was because I sometimes accidentally turn it off because of the placement of the buttons.
