    Comments about Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret:

    So this product took me a few times to get the hang of because you have to use a specific amount of hair, but once I did this thing worked perfectly! I can curl my hair in less than 20 minutes with this (which is great for me) and it stays longer than any other curler I've tried! I love this curler, and it has worked with me when I had short hair and when I had long hair. I think it is definitely worth the money if you have the patience to play with it

                Instructions say you can curl a one inch piece of hair at a time. Only works if you use a very small section of hair. No bigger that 10 strands at a time. Who has time for that? I returned it.

                I'm thankful I could afford this product on a whim. I would not recommend it for anyone unless they have $100 to spend on something they won't use that often. It takes a long time to do entire hair as you can't put much in the roller or it will snarl and THAT is NOT good. I was actually afraid I would have to cut my hair off to get it unsnarled a couple times(because I was putting too much hair in to speed up the process.

                Comments about Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret:

                I was skeptical at first about the product. Watched the videos and it seemed too good to be true and a bit expensive, but always looking for something new and exciting so I bought it and was so glad that I did. I LOVE it! I have straight below the shoulder length hair. The product is easy to use and gives you waves that last ALL day. My daughter has really really long hair and it didnt work well for her. Her hair got tangled easily in the product. But for me....I Love it and I think it was a great purchase....still a bit expensive but a great purchase nonetheless.

                        Comments about Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret:

                        I have formerly naturally curly, color treated hair that I've been straightening for years. Since menopause, it "crinkles" if I don't style it. I live in the desert, but when I go to someplace more humid, my hair just frizzes. It's about 2" below my shoulders.
                        I carefully read the reviews at Ulta.com and other sites, and watched a few of the videos from actual users. This product does require some practice in order to get good, consistent results.
                        I found that it works best for me when I hold it so the curling rod axis is pointed directly out from my head - any other angle seems to cause the device to reject the hair. Many times it would reject my hair but when I tried again at a better angle, it accepted the exact same amount of hair. I occasionally get a tangle, but if you just wait for it to release the hair, it's always come out easily for me.
                        I use it with Redken Iron Shape heat protection spray and have had very good results. The curl lasts for several days as long as I don't brush it; if I do, it relaxes into waves.
                        I bought this when I was recovering from rotator cuff (shoulder) surgery and thought I would be able to use it with one hand. That was not the case, but I found it much easier to use than a curling iron while my shoulder was recovering. Also, the heating element is covered so that I don't burn myself accidentally - a significant plus for me.
                        I've gotten a lot of complements on my hair when I've used this product.

                          To be fair, I haven't spent very much time trying to use this product. The 2 times I tried, I found it quite heavy and difficult to use. The directions tell you to keep 1 side towards your scalp which is easier said than done. I'm not very adept as styling my hair so this may have something to do with my troubles using it.

                              Yes, you can certainly use on hair that is longer than 10 inches. The curl will just start lower on the hair shaft.

                              Curl Secret works on most hair lengths and types. For best results, we recommend using it on at least shoulder-length hair.

                            My daughter is wanting this product. Because she has afro centric hair (super kinky) we are wondering if it would work on her hair? Since her hair is so thick and kinky I don't want to buy this and then have problems with her hair getting caught in it. What effect would it have if her hair was flat ironed first.

                              The Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret works on all hair types and textures regardless of ethnicity. While not required, we recommend that hair is straight before use - as this provides a much better end result. It is very important to comb through clean, dry hair so it is smooth and free of tangles. Depending on hair length and texture, work with 1/2 in.-1 in. sections - the smaller the section, the easier the hair is to work with. Please note, hair must be free of any product before use.

                              It does not have a reverse function. Curl Secret built in an added safety feature to make sure long hair doesn't get tangled in the curl chamber. The styler actually stops if it senses a tangle. Just release the strand and start over.

                              The barrel within the Curl Secret curl chamber can draw in approximately 10 inches of hair at one time. Any length of hair beyond this may cause issues. If your hair exceeds this length and you are looking to achieve full curls from root to tip, we suggest any of the Conair Conical Curling Wands:
                              http://www.ulta.com/ulta/a/_/Ntt-conair%20wand/Nty-1?Dy=1&ciSelector=searchResults

                              The diversity in barrel sizes offer many different curl styles! The Infiniti Pro Flocked Barrel Curling Wand (Item #: 2281007) would be excellent since its advanced velvet flocked barrel gently grips, protects and polishes hair while adding shine. For fuller beach waves with this product, gently run your fingers through the curls to create volume and body!

                              Curl Secret works on most hair lengths and types. For best results, we recommend using it on at least shoulder-length hair.

                            I have very long thick hair (almost to my tailbone area). Will this be able to suck up all of my hair or will I have to do one strand on two different heights. I've heard from other people that my hair is too long for this product.

                              The barrel within the Curl Secret curl chamber can draw in approximately 10 inches of hair at one time. Any length of hair beyond this may cause issues. If your hair exceeds this length and you are looking to achieve full curls from root to tip, we suggest any of the Conair Conical Curling Wands:
                              http://www.ulta.com/ulta/a/_/Ntt-conair%20wand/Nty-1?Dy=1&ciSelector=searchResults

                              The diversity in barrel sizes offer many different curl styles! The Infiniti Pro Flocked Barrel Curling Wand (Item #: 2281007) would be excellent since its advanced velvet flocked barrel gently grips, protects and polishes hair while adding shine. For fuller beach waves with this product, gently run your fingers through the curls to create volume and body!
