    I was hoping it be easier to use. It sometimes takes two hands to handle. Love the volume it gives.

      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

      I recently bought this because I got a short haircut and I was having trouble using the round brush and the blow dryer at the same time. I love this!! The round brush on this is excellent. It grabs all of my hair even the really short pieces. It blows warm air like a blow dryer. It doesn't dry it super fast but that's a good thing. Gives me time to style and round it as I go along drying and styling. Start to finish....it takes less than 10 minutes.

        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

        This is a styler, not a hairdyer!! It does blow air through the brush barrel, but you need to have your hair dry (or mostly dry) when using this. I also used the Hot Tools version, which gets hotter and so curls are tighter. However, the firm bristles on this one grab the hair much better, key for those with thicker or more hair. It gives a lovely sexy bendy wave to the hair, rather than a curly curl, exactly like i wanted. Let's see how long it lasts!

            I love this hot air brush! I have a shoulder length bob, with a lot of natural wave. I dry my hair 75% with a regular dryer, then use this to finish. Because it doesn't rotate, I can use this to pull my hair straight to dry. I keep one in the bathroom, and one in my suitcase for travel. My only request would be to make this dual voltage; I keep blowing these up in European hotel rooms!

                            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.

                        • Q:

                          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.
