Product Review: Does Conair Curl Secret Work?
PRODUCT: Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret
THE CLAIM: Curl Secret is a revolutionary new styler that gives you a “perfect curl” every time. It features an automatic curl chamber draws the hair in, heats, holds, and times it, creating any type of curl on any type of hair.
OUR TEST: Following the directions, we took a ½ in. – 1in. section of clean, combed and dry hair, and placed it into the hair guide. Next, we clamped the device shut, triggering it to suck the strand into the chamber, making it disappear with no tangles or tugs. In 5-10 seconds, we heard a beeping noise, which alerted us it was time to release the strand. Voula! A perfect curl.
VERDICT: This tool is a total game changer. There's no more excuses for women not curling their own hair!
The only work you have to do prep the piece of hair, place it in the device and clamp it shut. Everything else (besides opening the clamp) is automatic, leaving little room for error. The timing feature takes away the guessing game as to how long it takes to achieve the type curl you're after, and unlike regular curling irons, the chamber heats the hair from both sides and is coated with a ceramic finish, resulting in strong, more polished finish.
The most important step to stress when using the product is having the curl chamber side of the device always face your head. If its turned in the wrong direction, your hair will get tangled inside. If this occurs, an automatic sensor will detect the tangle, release your hair, and turn down the heat to avoid any damage. Pretty smart — but tangles are easy to avoid if you follow the directions.
The only buyer we'd be hesitant to recommend Curl Secret to are those naturally gifted with the curling wand. Because you can only curl ½ in. – 1in., perfectly combed sections at a time, the process can take longer than a quick wand session. Nevertheless, we have a feeling pro's would still be blown away by the beauty weapon.
Curl Secret not only changed the way we curl our hair, but better yet, changed who can curl their hair. Props to Conair, we can only imagine what's next!
