Last week I was visiting with a co-worker and was amazed at her hair. She usually wore it straight, in a ponytail, or in a bun. I love to work with my hair and I usually wear a different style every day, so I was curious what she did with her hair. It was full of curls and looked great. She said she used the “Curl Secret”. I told her I must know this “Secret”. Here sister is a hairdresser and had given her one to use. It sounded so easy I stopped by the store on my way home to pick one up. They are not cheap at an average price of $99 but I had to give it a try. I bought the Conair Curl Secret because it was the only one I could find that I didn’t have to order.
Conair Curl Secret
This is what it looks like and it basically sucks your hair up around the roller and depending on the setting will let you know when your hair is too curly perfection. That really is all there is to it. In the past, I’ve always curled my hair with a curling iron and every once in awhile I will branch out and use the hot rollers. However here in humid South Florida trying to create curls when your hair is not curly is pointless. It doesn’t matter how much product I put in it, by the time I arrive at work I have some waves.
I was telling my daughter about this nifty gadget and she agreed to be my test subject. So the same night I bought it she sat and watched her YouTube videos while I curled her hair. It turned out AMAZING!
Conair Curl Secret Results #1
My co-worker who has hair that is about the same length as Honey’s said it took her 10 minutes. That was not the case with us I would say it took a good 25 minutes so it definitely didn’t save me any time. However the results I think are much better than when I try to curl her hair with a curling iron. Not only that but she slept in these curls and she still had some wave in the morning.
The next morning I decided to give my own hair a try. Again I definitely didn’t save any time. You can only use small sections or the Curl Secret will not work properly. My hair is not quite as long as my daughters but I was still happy with the results. (Sorry for the selfie’s my daughter was not in the picture taking mood that morning)
Conair Curl Secret Results #2
Now here is the best part. Check out that photo on the left…that is me at work, and still with curls. My curls stayed in not only all day but they were still there the next morning. I did put a little bit of hair spray on my hair but honestly even in the winter curls do not remain in my hair that long. I am very impressed with the Curl Secret and love having it as an additional beauty tool.
I asked my co-worker how it was possible that she curled her long hair in 10 minutes. She said the secret was to put your hair in ponytails so you can manage your hair better. Then when you are done you can just curl the top layer. I decided to give it a try the next time. I will say it that maybe it was a little bit less time but not enough to warrant the ponytails. Since my hair is shorter the ponytails did leave the top layers pretty straight, which like she said I would have to re-curl. I can see the ponytail method working for my daughter (note: if you use this method by the plastic rubber bands that you can just cut when you are done so you don’t have to bring take out the ponytail holder and mess with the curls). If you want to keep your curly hair in top condition, we’ve found a great guide special shampoos for curly hair.
