      I was looking forward to using it but was disappointed in the amount of heat it generated also, very lightweight.

      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

      I've been using this for about a year, it's the best hair styling tool I've ever used. it doesn't tangle in my hair and leaves it smooth and shiny. I wait until my hair is just damp and dry it in sections. doesn't damage my hair like a flat iron and is so much easier than using a round brush and dryer. Texas humidity does a number on my way hair but this helps tremendously. bought an extra for a back up. just in case. love this, will never use anything else.

        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

        Someone recommended this product to me because I sometimes use a round brush while drying my hair to get a blow out style. That can be time consuming and is always hard to reach the back of my head. The first time I used it I did not like it at all and thought for sure I would return it. Before I did I decided to go online and watch a few videos of how people use it and that really helped. I tried it again and I loved the results. My hair was smooth and much easier to blow out compared to a separate brush and hair dryer. The key is to dry your hair to about 90% with a regular brush and hair dryer and finish the final 10% with this tool. It was much easier to get the back of my head as well.

          Wish it had more power. Bristles are a little too soft. Works best on hair thsy is damp, not dripping wet.

            Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

            After trying several hot air styling brushes, I have found that I absolutely love the John Frieda styling brush. In fact, I purchased 2 more as gifts for family members. One of the best features is the fact that the brush can be used on damp hair, as opposed to other styling brushes which cannot. No need to use hand held dryer prior to styling with this amazing brush. Even with daily use, this brush keeps my hair in healthy condition. This brush also saves time and provides a very satifying outcome.

                Is just a weak hair dryer with a brush attached. Brush does not rotate, so you must wrap hair in the brush while trying to keep hair from getting tangled.

                    I have a flat iron made by the same company and love it. I had such high hopes for this brush and was completely disappointed. Not only did it not get anywhere near hot enough to do the trick -- it felt cheap and easy-to-break. I have thick hair, but not crazy-thick (and it's chin length). Not a fan.

                            If you have long or thick hair, you may find it quicker and easier to use a hair dryer first to rough-dry your hair and remove the excess moisture. For added volume, turn your head upside down as you dry. Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style.

                          My hair is very curly. I'm looking for a hot air brush that will straighten and smooth my hair with minimal heat damage and styling time. I would prefer something that rotates but what's drawing me to this one is that the barrel also heats up and it's not just blowing out hot air. For extremely curly hair what would you recommend to straighten it better the John Frieda hot air brush or the rotating air brush?

                            A:

                            The John Frieda (#JFHA7) and Infiniti Pro Hot Air (#BC178) units are great for very curly hair. Both have maximum ion output to reduce frizz, optional multidirectional rotation feature and tangle free bristles. They volumize and shine as you dry for 90% faster styling (compared to a Conair dryer and brush). The John Frieda Hot Air Brush also has an ionic generator that generates negative ions, which neutralize positive ions in the air. The neutralization process flattens and seals the hair cuticle, reducing frizz and leaving the hair shiny and more manageable. Pro Tips: If you have long or thick hair, you may find it quicker and easier to use a hair dryer first to rough-dry your hair and remove the excess moisture. For added volume, turn your head upside down as you dry. Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style using either styler. Both are great options for taming curls and getting a silky smooth look.

                            The bristles on the John Frieda Hot Air Brush are a combination of nylon bristles with epoxy tips and soft bristles for added shine. The barrel cannot be removed but there is an inlet grill on the rear of the styler that can be opened for cleaning dust/debris from the filter.

                            Yes! The John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush (model JFHA6) has a 1 in. ceramic titanium coated barrel that is ideal for adding gorgeous volume and shine to most hair lengths. This barrel size is very versatile. We recommend blow drying hair using a hair dryer to rough-dry your hair first and remove the excess moisture. Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style using the hot air brush. We recommend you use the low heat setting for styling and the cool setting to set the style for long-lasting results. Start at the ends and use 1 in. sections of hair to prevent tangling.
