Spring is in the “hair”, and this season’s hottest runway hairstyles are easy to replicate with Conair’s newest hair products featuring the latest in technology. Whether you’re wanting chic and sleek or flirty, tousled curls, Conair can help you easily create the look you want without a team of stylists with its new brush and hair appliances. We’re sure you’ll have people asking, “who did your hair?!”
I have two teenage daughters who have long beautiful hair, and they are always styling each other's locks, whether it be braiding, straightening or curling, they are always coming up with gorgeous hairstyles.
We received Infiniti Pro by Conair™ Auto-Rotating Curling Iron to review and both of my girls has such a wonderful time curling each other's hair!
Look at Myelie's gorgeous curls!
Infiniti Pro by Conair™ Auto-Rotating Curling Iron
Conair is stepping it up with Curl Innovation™. The world revolves around curls with this new hair appliance that has a unique auto-rotating clamp that holds hair and spins around to create the perfect curl effortlessly! The 1 inch barrel has a tourmaline ceramic easy-glide surface which allows for smooth, shiny, silky curls. You can create an entire head of curls or just a few accent curls. Looser, natural looking curls can be created with wider sections of hair, or you can amp up the sexiness by stopping the rotation a few inches from the scalp.
The newest technology makes it simpler to clean off styling product residue and hair glides easily over the surface as you're curling. The barrel has bi-directional rotation, and the no-slip silicone strip allows for deep shine. There is less damage and zero hot spots. This amazing tool has two unique high-heat temperature settings that provide styling versatility for all hair types reaching 400°F on high heat. It has 30-second heat up and evenly distributes heat so that the style you create has a salon-perfect, silky smooth, shining finish.
The Infiniti Pro by Conair Auto-Rotating Curling Iron is available nationwide at mass market and drugstore retailers, as well as at www.conair.com, for an average retail price of $94.99.
Our Experience: My daughters love this curling iron! They both have very thick hair that takes forever to hold a good curl with regular curling irons. Because the Infiniti Pro heats the hair much quicker than traditional irons, the hair gets curled faster with much less damage and the curls last so much longer!
We also got to review the Conair® Carbon Smooth™ Extra-Large Thermal Round Brush
Shape up and style your hair beautifully like the pros! This sleek looking new brush features the latest Carbon technology. The Carbon properties on the barrel help to quickly blow dry hair, curb flyaways, add shine and reduce static providing gorgeous professional results. The new wavy bristle technology helps to gently grasp hair firmly making blow-dry styling easy! It smoothes and strengthens coarse, curly, or wavy hair and can create soft waves or curls.
As you can see in the picture below, my daughter, Kendallyn is sporting looser waves in her hair. She loves to blow dry her naturally curly hair using the new Conair® Carbon Smooth™ Extra-Large Thermal Round Brush to add shine and body to her course and sometimes unruly hair. She has found that it suits her hair type perfectly as well as tames it and keeps it from becoming frizzy. She loves it!
Kendallyn prefers her hair with looser waves
The Conair Carbon Smooth Extra-Large Thermal Round Brush is available nationwide at mass market and drugstore retailers starting in April, as well as at www.conair.com for an average retail price of $9.99.
For her prom, my daughter, Kendallyn didn't want to spend a lot of time curling her hair the day of the big dance, so she wanted to put her hair up in rollers the night before. We received the Conair AdjustaCurl™ Self-Grip Rollers to review, so this was an easy choice for her. I helped her roll up her hair before she went to bed, and her hair ended up looking so beautiful for her prom the next day!
Perfect hair for the prom!
