            I love my John Freida blow dryer. It blows my hair evenly and I need only to use the low setting and I still get lots of volume. It has multiple settings which is great. This is my second one.

                    I was encouraged to find this hair dryer to be lightweight. It was easy to style my hair with a round brush. The result was shiny swinging hair without frizz. It is basic and easy to use. I like medium heat and medium speed and my chin length hair dries in 7 minutes. I recommend this dryer!

                        Not very happy with this hair dryer. Every-time I use it I end with I don't like this hair dryer. I had a BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Dryer that lasted for a long time until the heater went out in it, I loved that dryer. I only bought this one because I ordered a Dyson on Dec. 17 and it is now January has not been delivered to me so I needed an inexpensive solution for now. Think I may return this.

                            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!
