      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.

                    Only used it once, but so far so good!

                    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shine Compact Dryer:

                    Please keep in mind I've only used this once!

                    I like that it is small and relatively light. Some users had issues with the buttons to switch from cool/warm/hot and high and low being in the way and easily pressed by accident. I have large hands, yet I'm easily able to hold the dryer underneath the buttons so that they don't get pressed by accident. I don't know if it's because I used it only once, but the temperature seemed uneven. The hot was very hot, the warm didn't seem to stay an even temperature, and the cool didn't seem cool enough... but all of this was good enough for me for a $39 dryer! I rarely blow dry my hair, so this wasn't an issue. My hair seemed to dry very quickly, and while using mostly the warm and cool settings (since the hot felt too hot). I was disappointed at first because my hair seemed frizzy once it was dry, but this always happens to me with every dryer (I'm in my 40s so unfortunately just don't have easily smooth hair anymore). But it seemed less frizzy than with other dryers, and after a few hours (or maybe sooner - I didn't check right away) it was lying so flat and smooth it looked as it I had used smoothing products on my hair, which I didn't - not even my usual thermal protector that I have to use when using other dryers. So although my hair initially was frizzy, this dryer did a much better job than other dryers I have used in terms of making my hair look shiny and smooth.

                              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!
