PROS / This hair curler boasts a five-year warranty.
CONS / This product is confusing and difficult to use.
VERDICT / The Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret is useful for its lack of exposed, heated barrels, but it's not easy to use.
The Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret gives you curls without you having to worry about an exposed hot barrel. This hair curler is unlike any curling iron on our lineup. Instead of wrapping your hair around a heated barrel to get a perfect curl, you place your hair in a curl chamber and hold it there for a period of time before it is released and curled. This hair-styling product can reach temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and it features tourmaline ceramic technology to prevent unwanted frizz in your curls.
The design of the Curl Secret is what sets this curling iron apart from other products on our lineup. To use this hair curler, you place sections of hair into a curl chamber on the device. Your hair is held in the chamber for a period of time before it is released, resulting in beautiful curls. There are three timer settings on the device. The amount of time your hair is in the chamber determines the type of curl you receive – loose, medium or tight.
When we put the Conair Curl Secret to the test, we found it to be confusing and overwhelming to use. It required a learning curve to understand how to properly use it and receive the curls we desired.
The hair curler reaches high temperatures of 400 degrees, which makes it hot enough to curl even thick and coarse hair. There are only two heat settings on the device, so if you have extremely thin and fine hair, you need to be cautious that you don't cause heat damage to your hair. This Conair hair styler features tourmaline ceramic technology, which reduces frizz and helps your curls looks smooth.
There is no digital screen on this device, but several levers are on the handle so you can choose the exact setting you need. It does feature automatic shut-off, which is a large safety benefit.
The power cord on the Conair Curl Secret is only 6 feet long. We would like to see a much longer cord on this device, as it would give you more room when curling your hair and prevent any feelings of being tethered the wall.
One standout feature of this product is its five-year manufacturer warranty. This is one of the best warranties we saw on this type of device. Conair also provides email and telephone support in case you have any questions and wish to speak with a representative.
The design of the Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret is unlike any other curling iron on our lineup. It does all of the curling for you, and the timer helps you determine the type of curl that you receive. We are also impressed with the high temperatures and the five-year warranty on this product. However, it does require some time to learn how to use it properly.
