                  Finally, a drier that doesn't frizz out my perm. It keeps individual curls, and helps get that "wiry, thready look" that I have been trying to achieve.

                        This is the first hairdryer I've purchased in about ten + years and I was amazed and how lightweight, yet powerful this little guy was. My old dryer took me almost an hour to dry my hair this one takes 15 to 20 mins.

                          I like this dryer just fine. However,
                          I think I would rather have a round concentrated than the oblong.

                            Would this compact dryer work well as a travel dryer (for example in Japan)?

                              A:

                              The John Frieda Dryer is not dual voltage, so you would need both a converter and adapter to use this dryer in another country. However, this dryer is smaller than other Conair dryers so it would work well for traveling!

                              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.
