      I am drying my hair much faster and I like that but I am having trouble getting used to the placement of the operating buttons. They are right where I grip the dryer for the most ease of use.

          Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

          I love that you can set the temperature to cool, medium, or high heat without having to constantly hold down a "cool" button the whole time; though it also has a button like that for cold air. The size is smaller than others I have used, which makes it easier to hold. Powerful enough to dry my thick hair quickly and isn't nearly as loud as most dryers.

          I use this for my hair. I like the look of it, and although it is heavy it is very practical for different looks for myself and my daughter.

          For my hair, it left it puffy but it would not curl... The texture changed in not a good way. I had to take it back.

                  This was a gift to my self!! :) I been wanting a blow dyer that wasn't to bulky since I have a lot of hair and it's very thick, so it can become tiring just blow drying my hair. It's fast, it has different levels of heat,that's perfect for when it hot in California and you can control how fast it blow drys. For its price it was a good buy.

                      I read the previous reviews, that is why I brought the dryer, tried it at home and it works lovely. Hair dries in a jiffy, buttons are easy to work with and control, nothing complicated. Love the color!

                        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

                        I bought this hairdryer because my other one was failing on me. I wanted one that was small and not super loud. I checked the reviews, and this one seemed to have high praises. I was a bit skeptical (because how great can a hairdryer be?) but purchased it since it looked compact in the store and others said it was quiet.

                        When I actually tried it..wow! Like others said, it kind of hums to life! Before, I used to have to shut the bathroom door and dry my hair when I knew others weren't sleeping. This one is amazingly quiet, so I don't have to. The buttons are positioned on the left side instead of the middle. I didn't have a problem with accidentally pushing them since you can really just place your fingers in between the buttons for both lefties and righties. The diffuser and concentrator attachments are a bit difficult to lock into place since you have to really push 'em into the head. Once they're in place, though, they do not move. The concentrator has slits on the side which is a bit weird since the air will go through 3 paths instead of one. The diffuser is really well built and nice.

                        In terms of actual performance, I seriously cannot believe a hairdryer can be this great.. I usually flip my hair back and forth when I dry it, and my older hairdryer used to just spew my hair everywhere and get it tangled. This one doesn't! It gives me volume when I do this. After I had finished drying my hair, it made my hair so soft and I didn't even put in my leave-in-conditioner. My hair actually felt like silk. 100% recommend to anyone and everyone.

                            The John Frieda Compact Dryer is smaller in size than the John Frieda Volume Dryer. The John Frieda Compact Dryer also has a DC motor while the John Frieda Volume Dryer has an AC motor. The John Frieda Volume dryer includes 2 concentrators and the John Frieda Compact Dryer includes one concentrator.
