    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

    I was looking for a hair dryer with a rotating brush to style my hair. I purchased this product after reading positive feedback only to get home and realize it was just a brush with hot air. I did not understand the point. I returned it the next day and purchased the correct one. The manager at the store who helped me was confused too. We both didn't get the point of the brush with heat. I think maybe I just don't know how to use it. Good luck!

            I recently went from medium brown to bleach blonde hair. I didn't want to fry my hair anymore with the blow dryer and curling iron.I looked up the reviews on this hair styler/dryer and decided on the 1" barrel. Also, the cool air setting is a major feature I wanted. My hair is fine, thin on top but a beautiful platinum blonde . I washed and conditioned my hair. I use a styling creme to protect my ends. I let my hair dry for a few minutes so its not dripping wet. I use a flat paddle brush to make sure there are no tangles. I started with the back where my hair is thickest. My hair came out shiny and much less frizzy than it normally is on the ends. I put some styling creme on the ends and used John Frieda she's blonde crystal clear hairspray. My hair was so soft and shiny! As blondes know, its harder to see shine on blonde hair. I also wanted to note that I have some arthritis in my hands and handling this was no problem. Like the other reviewers said, I could never get the blow dryer/round brush knack.

              I use this every morning. My hair is very fine. I usually let my hair air dry for awhile then use the hot air brush. I used to blow dry my hair, then use a curling brush now I just use the hot air brush.

                Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

                I recently cut my thick but fine hair from mid back to a cute bob. My hair is very smooth but I never could achieve the particular look I wanted with my flat iron and being uncoordinated (lol), using a round brush and hair dryer was difficult. This. Thing. Rocks! After the first use, my hair is incredibly smooth, shiny and soft. Finally what I have been looking for! I was concerned it would get tangled in my hair -not at all!I'm very impressed with this styling tool. It makes my hair look much better than my much more expensive BaByliss pro titinium flat iron. The salesperson in Ulta recommended a Remington tool with 1 1/2 & 2 in barrels that rotated. Knowing my hair, I chose this one for the 1 in barrel and the fact that it doesn't rotate. WINNER!

                  I like this product, but hair should be nearly dry. Use a small section of hair at a time. With my thick hair, it takes too long if my hair is too damp.
                  The biggest con is that the heat switch is hard to move with one finger, so switching from hot to cool to set the curl is sometimes a challenge.
                  The smaller diameter brush offers quite a curl.

                  I have short, thin, fine hair and a curling brush works really well for me. It's easiest, get the most volume and I only have one tool, not a brush, dryer etc. I can get static easy but it seems to be minimal with this brush.

                    This is my favorite hair styling tool. It's so much easier to use than a brush and a blow dryer for me, and I don't need to use a flat iron or hair curler when using it. My hair dries pretty quick with this, but my hair is also fairly short. I love this hot air brush!

                        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 and works very well on shorter hair lengths. 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.

                        A:

                        The John Frieda Hot Air Brush is best used for adding volume and shine to your hair. This hot air styler eliminates the need to use a brush. The anti-frizz ionic generator and gentle air allow you to quickly smooth out frizz and style while adding natural waves and body to your hair. It's the perfect tool for in between washes.

                        You can also look at the BC178OMB 2" hot air styler with spin brush action to let the tool do all the styling for you in one easy step leaving your hair silky smooth with waves and extra body. The ionic frizz fighting feature makes hair more manageable, healthy-looking and shiny.

                        If you are looking for a natural wavy look, we recommend using one of our larger barrel curling wands, Conair You Curl Styling Wand XL! The tapered barrel goes from 1 ¼" to ¾" so it's the perfect tool for creating full, natural waves! The You Curl Styling Wand XL uses advanced silicone technology and has unique nonslip strips that gently grip and guide hair over barrel for effortless styling. In an effort to keep your naturally curling hair frizz-free, this styler's tourmaline ceramic barrel coating helps protect your hair while instantly smoothening for long lasting results. Pro Styling Tip: if you want to add even more volume/body, once you are done curling your hair with the wand, gently brush your hair with a cushion brush – our recommendation, the Tourmaline Gel Grip Oval Cushion Brush!

                        A:

                        There are 2 heat settings, plus a cool setting on the JFHA5R. The high heat setting is ideal for initial drying; however, since you have very long hair, you may find it quicker and easier to use a hair dryer first to rough-dry your hair 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.

                        Prior to using Salon Shape Hot Air Brush, we recommend blow drying hair using a dryer such as Full Volume Hair Dryer (Item #: 2234247). Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style using the Salon Shape Hot Air Brush.
