5.0 out of 5 stars Great new product!!, October 15, 2011

This review is from: John Frieda Salon Shape 1.5 Inch Hot Air Brush (Health and Beauty)
My Wigo hot air brush has given up the ghost, and doesn't seem to be carried by anyone any longer. I searched for possible alternatives for my shoulder length defiantly STRAIGHT layered hair, and found the same old products, which I have tried and am not impressed with. Instead, I found this new hot air brush by John Frieda, and it is WONDERFUL. I received it 3 days ago, and I am truly enjoying using it. The picture doesn't really show this, but it has two types of bristles; one is longer, stiffer and has rounded ends, and a short set of normal softer bristles. This brush head really grabs my hair and guides it around the brush - no more slithering out of the brush head, and burned fingers from trying to guide my hair around the brush. It doesn't tangle my hair, releases easily, and I am not ending up with any fuzzy, kinked ends from not having wrapped my hair around the brush properly before setting the curl. The high heat setting isn't too hot, so it doesn't burn my scalp, and it has a cool setting (that is a little bit hard to find) that helps set the curl. It does have a little seam in the housing that caught my hair initially and pulled out a few hairs - I think I might seal that with epoxy, and I would love it if this brush came in a 1 1/4 inch barrel size. My hair looks like my hairdresser blow dried it after using this product - even in the back - and the curl and body last all day!! I am buying another as a spare/travel hot air brush.

Thanks for putting up this review. I am searching for a new hot air styler. I have a Revlon ionic. It gets very very hot, scary hot. Today it burnt a section of my hair off so it's now sitting in my garbage can. Does this one get so hot that you can't touch it? Also, does it dry all of your hair without needing any additional help from a regular hair dryer? Thanks.

Didn't check for replies - hope you bought one of these. No, it doesn't get too hot - I had problems with burning my fingers and scalp with my other hot air brushes, but this model is outstanding. This is all I use - I just towel dry and this hot air brush takes care of completely drying my hair.

I purchased this brush just this week and saw your review. How do you do your curly hair using this? I found altho the brush guides the hair really well, it straightens it. I have curly hair and would like to do the curls using this.

can anyone tell me what size the brush is on the John Frieda 2788U Volume Shine Airstyler is, please? I presently use a Rowenta one and the brushes are too big. Am considering getting the John Frieda but am worried that the brush will be as big. Thanks.
