    I wanted this product to replace my round brush and hair dryer and it just wasn't powerful enough so I returned it. It worked nicely on dry hair, but couldn't do what my hair dryer can.

      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

      I typically find a hot air brush and stick with it. My fav fell apart and I reluctantly bought this one. But to my suprise, I LOVE IT!!! It leaves my hair feeling awesome and it is built so well. The bristles are firm and although it is not loud, I turned it on and felt disappointment at first it gets pretty hot. It takes way less time to hot curl my hair and it looks amazing!!! I thought about buying two just in case they stop making it. I am half asian and have thick hair and it worked so well.

        Easy to use. Nice large handle. Works well on thick, full naturally wavy hair. I love this product. It works best if you use small to medium sections of hair.

          This is so easy to use, doesn't tangle or pull your hair at all. Leaves it really smooth, soft and shinny! My hair has a lot of natural curl and wave, but my hair isn't terribly thick. I'm still getting the hang of using it, if I blow out the top of my hair too much, it makes it a little flat on top. But very smooth and soft. It will be great for travel. Super light weight. So much better than packing hot rollers and curling irons!

            Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

            My hair is thick, curly, wavy and all around unmanageable. I've tried straightening, blowing it out, and natural, but it was such a hassle or wouldn't stay the way I styled it. This air brush not only works for me but it is so easy to use and I can pack it easily in a bag when I travel. My mom even noticed and she's now using it as well. Such a savior.

            The only thing I can think to complain about is how long it takes me, but if you run it through slowly it works like a charm (plus I use it right out of the shower wet hair). Still saves me time and my arms compared to anything else I've used.

            Love love love get this product!!

                Great size -- not too cumbersome. Heat settings are fine. All-in-all, an efficient product. Very pleased for the price!!!

                Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

                This hot brush does a good job of adding volume and making my hair appear super full (although I'll admit that I have really thick hair to begin with). My main gripe against it is that it takes a while to figure out how to use it and it doesn't heat up hardly at all. I have to first use the brush to get my hair styled and voluminized, and then separately heat up my actual flat iron to go over my hair to get it sleek-looking and to tame all the frizz. Combining these two tools gives me good results, but I wish I only had to use one tool to get my hair to look the way I want. As someone who has very difficult, thick, frizzy and kinky hair, my search for that one miracle hair styler continues. All in all, this product is a decent styler, but cannot get the job done for me on its own. In the meantime though I have a good hair routine between the brush and straightener.

                  Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

                  If you are like me and have never been so great at maneuvering a hair dryer and roundbrush for at-home blowouts, I really highly recommend this! I have a lot of thin, wavy hair that gets very puffy and has very inconsistent texture. This thing makes it incredibly smooth with much lower heat than a curling or straightening iron. It also makes it really easy to build volume, swoop hair a certain direction etc.

                  My ONLY complaint is that the part of the barrel that your hand wraps around is very wide in diameter. My hands are on the small side, and it does make my hand tired and make it a little harder to use than if it was thinner. But it's lightweight and does the job of two tools in one, so it's something I can deal with! Love this thing! Amazing for the price! I usually HATE styling my difficult hair but could see this being an every day kind of tool because it is so easy to use. One small recommendation - it's less powerful than a "real" hair dryer, so dry your hair until it's just barely holding any moisture first for the fastest results.

                      This does not get hot enough. I bought it thinking it would work. does not hold the style at all.
                      do not buy this product because it is cheap.

                      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

                      This was purchased on sale as a Christmas gift for my mother.
                      I read the positive reviews and consulted with her hair stylist to make the correct choice on the diameter of the brush barrel. Mom has never been able to do her own hair. For decades, the only time her hair looked good was when she first walked out of the salon.
                      As a former strictly "wash and wear" type, it took a bit of practice for her to get the hang of working with this hot air brush. Wow. What a difference.
                      If you have been struggling to style your hair, using a separate brush and a dryer, tying up two arms/hands, give this a try. I know that I want one now.
