      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

      I always look for a small, light weight dryer as it takes a long time to dry my thick wavy hair and this has been very good. The controls are well placed and easy to switch from high to low or change heat settings. I intend on buying another one to have on hand when this one wears out!

        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

        I really wanted to keep this hairdryer because it was lightweight and had a short barrel, which is easier on my arms. But unfortunately it tended to dry out my hair even though it was ionic. So I had to keep a more expensive ionic model that had a slightly longer barrel, was a little louder, and slightly heavier.

                  Leaves hair silky smooth, but don't like the air flow concentrator. It has holes on each side that allows air to escape and tangles hair.

                      So far I like the hair dryer!! It dries my fine hair quickly. The defuser is a little difficult to take off.

                                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.
