As many people know, I have extremely unruly, thick — and now — very long hair. Maintaining it is hard any time of the year, but especially during summer and winter. In extreme heat or cold, my hair goes totally frizz-crazy, and I can easily spend an hour and half just styling it after each wash.
I recently decided to test out the new Conair Infiniti Pro Ionic Straightening Brush. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this brush and wanted to see if it can, indeed, replace my hair straightener.
This brush features a diamond brilliance shine system, combining infused ceramic with active conditioning ions to help transform hair. The nylon bristles guide the styling process for silkier, smoother results. There are three heat settings, which helps depending on your hair’s thickness. The bristles are also strategically placed slightly apart, making it very easy to clean the brush after each use.
I really enjoyed the experience and I’m going to show you what my hair looked like in 5 simple steps!
I washed my hair with Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil shampoo and followed up with Oribe’s Gold Lust Repair & Restore conditioner. Both are perfect for intensive winter haircare. I then towel-dried my hair.
I thoroughly dried my hair with the hairdryer. The thing I dislike the most is straightening my hair if it’s not fully dry – it’s really bad for the hair ends, in particular, and hair, in general, as it totally dries up and even burns the hair. So you want it to be fully dry before you start applying any extra heat.
My hair was now dry but, of course, it was massive! I was ready for some styling magic.
I spent about 15 minutes going over my hair with the brush. Now, on average, I would need about 30 to 40 minutes to do this with a regular hair straightener, because I would have to do it strand by strand. Since the brush is wide, it easily straightens and grooms the hair in larger chunks.
The brush also felt really nice on the hair — it almost felt like a massage. Of course, you don’t want to touch the head or your roots with it, because it gets really hot, but it just feels really pleasant on the hair in general. Definitely, a very relaxing experience.
And … before I knew it … I was done and ready to go! I did all of this one morning before going to work and was really impressed at how quickly I was able to have it all done. Thanks, Conair!
