Beautiful Curls Without Hours In Front Of The Mirror OKAY!
I have never been good with a curling iron. No matter how hard I try, I always seem to get crispy strands that don’t look like curls. I also have a LOT of hair, and individually curling small sections of my long locks would take FOREVER. My hair is naturally curly, but the only way I can take advantage of curls is to put tons of stiffening product in it, and I hate that feeling. Hair is supposed to feel light and bouncy, not heavy and rigid.
Before I can even consider curling my hair I have to straighten it. I know that makes no sense, but the frizz has to come out before pretty curls will stay in. Once I’ve spent 15 to 20 minutes straightening, I don’t want to spend hours putting in the curl. Basically, I end up with stick straight locks and not a lot else. I wanted to find a product that would help me get the curls I want without the huge time commitment that comes with curling my thick mane. The Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret might be just the ticket to getting exactly what I want.
DON’T Feel The Burn
This tool is different from regular curling irons because it has an enclosed chamber to pull the hair through, which is different to a lot of other options I’ve come across. Basically everything that gets hot is held within the circular chamber, and rather than pulling the device through straight hair, the hair gets pulled through the device. I am the clumsiest person in the world, so anything that’s designed to make it more difficult for me to hurt myself gets an A+ in my book!
Even though you can’t see the inside of the curler the plates and circular device that touch your hair have a tourmaline covering that is considered cutting edge technology. Tourmaline smooth’s hair while removing frizz and keeps in moisture. Instead of curls that break into frizz, they are preserved and can last most of the day.
Practically Adjustable In Every Way
One of the things I like most about this device is it does the work for you. You string the hair into it and then it does the curling. No hot wand to touch and little risk of burning yourself! When you decide how you want the curls, you can change the settings. Longer settings create tighter curls and shorter ones make loose, wave-like curls. You pick the time setting and the iron does the rest.
Get Heated, But Only If You Want
The heat settings on this wand aren’t difficult to use which makes it easier when you’re learning how to navigate making curls with it. You can start at a lower setting and slowly increase it up to 400F. Having different temperature settings helps ensure you don’t torture your hair while trying to get the curls of your dreams.
Grow It Out Or Cut It Short
The ability to get tight curls out of this motorized iron means you can use it on hair of just about any type. It doesn’t matter how long, short, thick or thin, it should pull it through as long as you’re not using clumps that are too large.
The Secret of Curl Secret
The real thing the curl secret does that makes it different from just about every other iron or wand is that by pulling the hair into a chamber rather than wrapping it around a heated rod, the hair gets heated on all sides. The circular motion traps moisture in from everywhere so frizz becomes less of an issue.
One thing I like most about the device is it alleviates my fear of hair getting caught. When (or rather, if) the wand starts to malfunction it will make a few beeps that signal the user to push the release button. Then, the hair comes out easily once it’s been released so you don’t have to worry about your hair burning or not curling enough.
Take Your Time Or Lose Your Mind
The Curl Secret is a great option, but it isn’t easy to use straight out of the box. The box says your hair won’t get stuck, but it probably will when you’re first learning to use it. Either you’ll use too much hair or twist it wrong or do something that won’t work for the machine. Just take your time when you’re learning.
Don’t Go It Alone
There are instructions in the box for a reason, so make sure you use them. If you don’t you’ll either burn your hair or not leave it in long enough. One is bad for your hair in the long run, but the other is no good for your style, so don’t do either.
Issues For Thickness
While the device is supposed to work for people of all hair types the thicker the hair strand, the more likely it is that you won’t get what you want from it. This doesn’t mean it won’t work at all, but it is harder to get perfect curls with a device like this on thick hair. Not everyone is pleased with the result, and while it does cut down on time significantly it’s still a lot of work to get a thick head of hair under control.
An Interesting Upgrade
While I really like the idea of easy to maintain curls that don’t take a lot of time to get, I’m not entirely sure this device has what I need just yet. The only thing that puts me off is the fact it doesn’t seem to work too well with thick hair. That being said, I’m going to put this one on my short list to try.
