If you're like me - you don't mess with your hair. I can't be bother more than half the time (more like more than 90% of the time) to even brush it. Not that I don't want to try out all those Pinterest worthy hair styles, I just don't really have a lot of "hair-doing" skills or the time to sit there with my super long and thick hair and try to tame it. So, I was actually a little hesitant to try out these products because I thought I'd make a total mess of it. I'm so glad I actually did try these out because I have fallen in L-O-V-E.
I love the way my hair looks curled, I think it makes the ombre look awesome but every time (I kid you not, EVERY FREAKING TIME) I curl my hair I get new burn which turns into a beautiful little scar. Also, it takes like an hour so we can just forget that. But, Conair came to my rescue when they allowed me to be a part of the #HeartMyHair project. Conair sent me to my local Walmart to find the InfinitiPRO 3Q Hair Dryer* and the InfinitiPRO Curl Secret*. Guys - this thing has changed my hair game forever. I'm going to show you my easy step by step guide to get some big easy beach waves that you can wear all year around. Not to mention this might be a helpful tutorial on how to use the Conair Pro Curl Secret seeing as how it can be a little overwhelming.
First, brush out that hair girl! Although I'm breaking my own rules here, it's always better to towel dry your hair first because brushing your hair while it's still wet can cause breakage. I use the Conair Velvet Touch Paddle Brush* which makes brushing all of my hair a much quicker job.
First things first, don't judge the serious faces - I was very focused. Secondly, don't even ask me what was going on with the half blink my left eye is doing. Moving on, using my Conair Professional Round Brush* and the fab InfinitiPRO 3Q Hair Dryer* I blow dried all of my roots in the opposite direction that I am going to wear them. Doing this adds volume that you might not notice just looking in the mirror but if you do a before and after - you can definitely see the difference.
Once you're hair is 100% dry you're ready to get down to business! Now, I'm not going to lie, the InfinitiPRO Curl Secret* is definitely intimidating at first but this thing is almost fool proof. Basically, you just take one clean strand at a time (no crazy flyaways or tangles, so smooth that strand out!) and place it across the chamber (almost like how you would start out straightening your hair) which is kind of just a little "v" shaped compartment. Then, you close the iron and you'll hear the little curler getting to work. It slowly draws the strand into the chamber and you will hear a series of beeps based on the settings you chose. For this look I chose 8 seconds each on high heat. Keep in mind, this is not as scary as it sounds, this thing is almost impossible to tangle your hair or get your hair caught in because as soon as it detects a tangle it stops, beeps at you and makes you try again. It also beeps to tell you when to release the chamber. Look how great that curl turned out!! It's SO easy and so fast. To see a short video on how I actually use the ProCurl Secret head over to my Instagram to check it out.
This is what the 8 second curls look like on my thick hair. Next time I will definitely go for the 12 seconds for some stronger curls. Also, I recommend curling your hair on what I call "second day hair" meaning you didn't just wash it that day. It seems to hold styling a lot better that way.
Next, I like to brush out my curls to kind of soften the look and make it seem more natural.
And voila! You're done. All in all this look took me about ten minutes at the very most. Like I said, I am in love.
