      Comments about John Frieda Full Volume Hair Dryer:

      I had a different brand dryer, which was more expensive and died in a year, so I set out to find an alternative as I will never own that brand again. I went into my local Ulta and settled for this dryer. I expected more as I use other John Frieda products and LOVE them. This dryer does dry my hair quickly, but at the cost of my hair blowing all over the place. Even with the nozzle, there is little to no control over the force of the air and the air flow isn't as direct as other dryers I've owned in the past. The high setting is too high and my hair just ends up being blown into a tangled mess, while the low setting isn't powerful enough. I tried the dryer for two weeks before I gave up and returned it to the store for a more expensive dryer. Hard pass on another John Frieda hair appliance.

        Use after shampoo and rinse to style hair. The air flow is good and temperature has good range.

        DESIGN NOT PRACTICAL

              Comments about John Frieda Full Volume Hair Dryer:

              I got this hairdryer because reviews said it was one of the better under $50 products. I used it once and took it back to the store. The product itself was great. The design was the issue, mainly the buttons on the side of the handle. Everytime I would hold the hairdryer, I would hit the switches and change the heat/blow settings. The buttons need to be on the inner part of the handle, not out the outside.

                Comments about John Frieda Full Volume Hair Dryer:

                I have very thick and coarse hair and this is the best hairdryer hands down! It gets my hair dry so fast, and the end results are smooth and frizzless hair. With other hair dryers it takes anywhere from 25-35 minutes, and this one literally takes 7-10 minutes. Amazing.

                  Every dryer i have ever owned did all the same things, made my hair frizzy, staticy and dried my hair out. This dryer is THE ONLY ONE that made my hair look so beautiful, sleek, soft and shiny! It made my hair SO SMOOTH that i almost didnt have to flat iron it since i naturally have wavy hair. Freaking amazing!! Didnt have any issues with the weight or control buttons at all... even if i did, id put up with it because how beautiful it makes my hair look!

                      Truly made my hair gummy and strawlike @ the same time! Didn't know that was possible. Very heavy and loud.

                        Your average hairdryer. I honestly expected a little more from it, given the price. It gets the job done, so I guess I can't complain.

                          My hair is thin and curly. This blow dryer does a quick job of drying my hair and straightening it--generally it looks good. I'm just a bit concerned that after a month of use, the motor seems to make a ragged noise. One reason I bought it was because of its 3 different heat settings, but the 'medium' heat setting seems to be pretty lukewarm. I would recommend it with the above caveats.
