I love trying out new hair products, and I've been particularly intrigued by the Conair Infinity Pro Curl Secret curling iron. Could it REALLY work and cut down my morning routine? I was going to put it to the test and find out.
Step one: Find it in the store. It was pretty easy to track down at my local Walmart. I was also looking for the InfinitiPRO Q3 hair dryer, which proved to be a little more difficult to find. They're apparently so popular they were sold out everywhere in Little Rock - I had to make the trek out to Benton to snag one! Here's my face after I found it (PS, you can search for inventory at your local Walmarts online):
Gang's all here! So step two: Wash your hair. This was my most difficult task of the day. Then I pulled the dryer out to see what it could do. It's SO QUIET, you guys. I was seriously impressed by that. It also uses less heat to dry your hair, so it didn't make my hair as frizzy. On the left is what my hair usually looks like after blow drying, on the right is a quick selfie of how it looked after I dried it with the Q3. It was so much smoother than it normally is! My hair is naturally curly, so the fact that it tamed my curls without a round brush (I just used a Conair Velvet Paddle Brush to detangle a little) so well is impressive.
So basically, it feels like a salon quality dryer that's more affordable and easier to find. Moving on to step three: Let's bust open this Curl Secret and see what it can do. Not gonna lie, it was slightly intimidating at first! I was shocked at how easy it was to use, though. After that first curl, I was hooked! I put a video on Instagram of the process if you want to see how it works. In goes hair, out pops curls. So now, it's time to mess with the settings. You can choose between low and high heat, and between three timer settings. It beeps when the curl is done, so the lower the timer, the looser the curl. I went with the loosest curl setting to create some soft waves for an everyday look.
Fabulous, right? I wasn't sure how it would work with shorter hair but this thing is legit! Once I got the hang of it, the entire process went quickly and felt much less fussy. Next I wanted to do an undo look for night, so I turned up the curls to the longest timer setting. This worked really well and I came out with some killer curls! I decided to pin them to the side with some Conair bobby pins to make a sort of updo for a night look.
This is an easy look to recreate. I just started twisting and pinning hair around the back of my head and then let the hair cascade over my shoulder. Instant old Hollywood vibe.
All in all, I think this is a handy little hair doodad! I can't wait to see how it fits into my morning routine. Anyone else try the Curl Secret or Q3 dryer and love it?
