            The end of this brush gets very, very hot and makes it too hard to work with. I took it back.

                I've gotten several complements since I started using it and it does seem to leave hair less frizzy.

                The Product I've been waiting for

                      I have been looking for a hair tool that I could use to make my routine quick and easy. This product delivered. I have normal, shoulder length hair and using the 1" brush, my hair was soft, dry and had body. You do have to wait until your hair is about 80% dry so it doesn't safe time in that sense, but it did only take me 20 minutes to do my hair where it did take me 45 to round brush it with a hai dryer. The only thing I wish it had was a tip at the top so I could hold the tool at both ends while curling.

                      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

                      I purchased this brush on a whim after watching a few hot air brush videos. I purchased the 1.5" brush and have been pleased with it for the most part.

                      I've been blow drying my hair with a round brush and a hair dryer (I use a John Frieda dryer, too), and was getting aggravated with the limpness and mild friz of my hair by the time I was done drying. I was also trying to simplify my styling in the morning now that it's getting more hot and humid. To run an 1875-watt hair dryer in a tiny bathroom is miserable. I was drenched in sweat by the time I was done! This brush only pumps out 500 watts, so the bathroom doesn't get as hot, but I also have to run the hot air brush through my hair a few more times to get the look I want. I start with my hair about 80% dry, put in a dollop of mousse, dry my hair upside down just a tad more, and then start with the hot air brush.

                      I was thoroughly impressed at how light and silky my hair was after the first time I used it, but I noticed that it wasn't adding as much volume as others had proclaimed in other reviews and even in YouTube tutorials. My guess is because I purchased the 1.5" brush, which is probably great at producing that straight, sleek look that I am (unintentionally) getting. I'll be purchasing/exchanging the 1" size to try it and see which brush I prefer. It could also be my hair that is causing the issue. I have really long, medium-thickness hair (not too thick, not too thin), so it's quite possible that it's too heavy to hold the style I was looking for. On the plus side, the frizz-free mane I get in the morning when I don't attempt anything fancy, lasts all throughout the day, even with the horrible humidity we've been having in our area lately.

                      Overall, this is a great tool. A little slick to hold--mine slipped out of my hand because I was holding it too close to the base and not close enough to the heat switch where it's more ergonomic (operator error), so just be careful.

                        I have used several different hot air brushes, and this one is by far my favorite. It grips my hair with ease and makes it nice and shiny. It's easy to use and works best on damp hair. I can just dry and go and not have to bother with any other styling tools. One if my favorite things about this dryer is it is very lightweight. My other hot air brush cost twice as much and my arms ached when I was done using it. Works great on my fine, long hair.

                            I have extremely curly and frizzy hair. I have to blow dry it straight then flat iron it but my blow drier would leave fly aways and frizzy. This product made my hair so soft and silky before I even flat ironed it. It made my hair look like it does when I get it done at the salon. I'm so excited now that I can get the same look without leaving my home. I normally need a lot of heat to get it straight but the temperature still got the job done. The barrel was perfect since my hair is so thick. If only the barrel would turn on its own. I did have to rest my hand but I was already used to having to do it previously. Overall, I love this product.
