    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

    The control switches are on inside of handle. Often turn dryer off or change setting just by simply holding the handle. The switches are too sensitive.

    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

    i was in need for a new blow dryer. tested this one out and loved the light weight feel and the settings. does not have immense power but with the right brush and heat protectant, you hair dries smoothe and has a natural shine.

        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

        I have straight, fine, just below shoulder blonde hair, but a lot of it. I blow dry my hair to get the maximum volume: upside down and then clipped up, blow drying sections at a time with a large roller brush on high heat. I use the low setting for air flow, but would like to have another setting with even less power so it wouldn't blow my hair around so much. This dryer has a diffuser, but I dislike diffusers because they are bulky and awkward and you can't concentrate the heat where you need it easily. I like how lightweight this dryer is (most lightweight dryers don't give you enough power or the option for separate heat and airflow). I don't like the rocker switches located on the side of the handle - they get turned off by my palm when I don't want them to be turned off.

        Hot But Not So Hot

        Pros

        • Strong Blower

        Cons

        • Not Enough Heat

        • At Home

        Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

        Being that this blow dryer is rated at such a high wattage- I really expected a lot more heat. The blower is incredibly strong and it moves a lot of air, however, On the high heat setting it really doesn't get hot enough to do a very efficient job.

          Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

          good dryer, leaves my hair feeling healthy not dried out or frizzed. There are only two things that could have gotten it a 5 rating: dual voltage for global travel and a little lighter. Although I might be a little biased on the weight since I've been using a small travel dryer for a long time and it weighted next to nothing!

              Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

              Plenty of heat and air. Good price. And unlike my previous, expensive dryer, there's no static electricity in my hair anymore. The only reason I didn't give it a "5" rating was because I sometimes accidentally turn it off because of the placement of the buttons.
