My natural hair is in no means desirable; I’ve been straightening and curling it since I was 14. My hair then looks great, but it’s also not at its most healthiest stage. I’ve been actively trying to not straighten it as much so I can avoid damaging the ends of my hair. When I received Conair’s Infiniti Pro Ionic Straightening Brush to review about a month ago, I was skeptical about how well it would work and if it would damage my hair. Well, I’ve been using it about twice a week since then so I can get used to it and give a good insightful review.
Before I get into my thoughts, here’s some quick information about Conair’s Infiniti Pro Ionic Straightening Brush. The plates themselves are designed like a paddle brush to provide more contact with your hair for faster styling. The actual part that heats up is made from diamond-infused ceramic which leaves your hair shiny, straight and smooth. There are also nylon, silicone and ceramic bristles that gently glide through your hair while straightening. There are 3 different heat settings (low, medium, and high) with the highest setting being 400°F.
When I first tried the Conair’s Infiniti Pro Ionic Straightening Brush, I was nervous because when I turned it on, I could hear a high-pitch noise coming from it. I’m not sure if there’s too much electricity going into it (if that’s even a thing..), or if something is wrong with the wiring. Well, it didn’t stop me because I let it heat up and went right into straightening my hair haha. I separated my hair into 3 sections and started to brush away. It was REALLY easy to use and my hair became noticeably less frizzy almost immediately. I had to hold the ends of my hair out so I could get the closest contact as possible while brushing through, however, I couldn’t do that with the ends of my hair so they weren’t dead straight. I don’t think this is the biggest problem since it still gives my hair some “life” and it’s not breaking the ends off. This could be a problem for someone who has really curly hair though.
It took me a total of 10 minutes to actually straighten my whole head; Compared to the usual 30-45 mins that I usually take to straighten my hair with a straightener. This can’t compare to the overall outcome that a straightener can give, but I don’t even mind. I will still continue to use Conair’s Infiniti Pro Ionic Straightening Brush, especially when I don’t have a ton of time to style my hair!
