Infiniti by Conair You Curl: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis The Infiniti by Conair You Curl styling iron will provide a easier way to achieve softer, more natural curls in an otherwise boring hair day.

materials One Infiniti by Conair You Curl styling iron, a five year old who loves “princess hair” and a thirty six year old Mom who is looking for something more from her hair.  About Infiniti by Conair You Curl:

Soft, sexy curls are now easy to create with the new Infiniti by Conair You Curl

. The You Curl has a unique, clamp-free design and a cone-shaped barrel that creates a softer, less structured curl.  Simply wrap hair around the barrel, hold for a few seconds and then release.  The conical design allows the curls to start closer to the root, allowing more volume through the middle (large portion of the barrel) and the bottom will have a tighter curl (small section of the barrel).  The effect is trendy, free-flowing spirals with no “clamp kinks.”

The powerful ceramic heater features Tourmaline Ceramic™ technology which provides more protection, reduces frizz, helps eliminate static and does not have damaging hot spots. The ultra-high heat levels are instantly restored during use, and the 5 LED settings provide the ideal temperatures for all hair types. The stay-cool safety tip protects fingers during use.”

results Just about every time I need my hair to look “presentable”, I reach for my flat iron.  While I love it, and like the way my hair looks straight, sometimes I want a style a little flashier!  I have tried curling my hair with a traditional curling iron, but I have so much hair that it takes FOREVER to curl every single piece (and it’s extremely hard to get the back sections, too).  So, I was totally willing to try the new look of Infinity by Conair You Curl after seeing the commercial:

My daughters and I had a baby shower to attend today, so I knew it was a great time to try out the style.  The iron has several different temperature settings (more than just HI and LOW) to accommodate many hair types.  It heated up quickly and we were ready to go!  I like that the iron is lightweight and than no clamping is necessary.  I think mastering the technique may take a little practice as I found it a bit hard to use on my layered hair.  That being said, the Infinity by Conair You Curl did provide loose, more natural looking curls.  I found that because it provide natural curls and waves, I didn’t HAVE to get every single strand of hair curled in order for it to look good.  Big bonus in my book!

For the record, my youngest has naturally curly hair, so this product was not used on her.

hypothesis My daughter and I tried the Infiniti by Conair You Curl today before attending a baby shower.  I was very pleased with the speed of heating, weight of the product and results of the hairstyle.  I think the technique needs a little practicing on layered hairstyle since their is no clamp to keep hair in place.  However, I think purchasing the product is definitely worth it!
