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.

                    Comments about John Frieda Full Volume Hair Dryer:

                    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.

                        Too strong of air flow on the high setting, blows the hair off the brush or tunes it into a wild tangled mess if not using a brush. Not enough heat on the second setting to actually style hair. The controls are awkwardly situated on the handle, hard to switch back and forth easily and often hit a control button without meaning to. Might be good for those with long or heavy hair, not good for those of use with shorter fine hair. I am returning mine today!

                            I have fine, straight hair and this dryer is great for minimizing frizz and the use of product. I can finally just dry it and go and it leaves my hair shiny and frizz free. I haven't explored all the attachments yet. The dryer is a bit heavy but not enough to discontinue use. The noise is customary to a regular dryer but with a bit higher pitch. The air comes through very strong and my hair is dry within 5 minutes. I would buy this dryer again.

                                I freaking hate this hair dryer! Does nothing but dry it out and make it frizzier than ever. I use pureology products but one would never know it to look at my hair and I truly believe it's the dryer; it's not the hair products! And it's heavy and has the controls in an odd place.
