Giveaway and Review: Conair Infiniti you curl (ARV $49.99)

I have been growing my hair long the past couple years.  I love the look of the long, soft sexy curls, but with such straight, hard-to-curl hair, I wasn't sure I could achieve that look.  I was excited to try the Infiniti by Conair You Curl tourmaline ceramic styler.  I was concerned that it might styler not get hot enough, till I saw it heats up to 400 degrees for hard-to-curl hair.  At that temperature, I knew it would be hot enough. 

This heats up super fast--in about 30 seconds.  You have the choice of four temperature settings.  Another nice feature is that this will shut off automatically within 60 minutes if you fail to turn it off.

Since this is different from a curling iron, it took a little getting used to.  Basically, you start about 2" from the scalp and wind your hair around the styler from the widest part to the narrow, cool tip.  You hold the hair for 5-8 seconds and then release.  For tighter curls, you roll less hair, for loose curls, you roll more hair. 

Like I said, this will take some getting used to, but I think I did pretty good for my first try and it didn't take very long at all and I was pleased with the results!  I can't wait to play around more with it!



The only thing I did not like about this is the on off switch.  It is placed right on the handle where my thumb was and I ended up switching the styler off a couple times on accident.  However, I did start holding it where there is grips, a bit further up the iron and that worked better for me.

Want to win your own Infiniti by Conair You Curl?  Then enter my giveaway below.
