Conair You Curl Curling Iron Review

I've been needing a new curling iron for a while. The one I have now is about 3 or 4 years old and doesn't work as well as it should. I love to curl my hair for just about any occasion.

When I had the chance to review Conair's new curling iron, I was excited.

Information about the product:
You Curl. New shape. No clip. The Infiniti by Conair You Curl lets you achieve smooth, frizz-free curls without a visit to the salon. This curling iron has a unique clamp-free conical barrel that makes it easier than ever to create beautiful, natural curls. It also features tourmaline ceramic technology and even heat distribution for professional, shiny, static-free results. Plus, You Curl's 30-second instant heat feature, four heat settings, and LED indicators ensure you'll get flawless, kink-free curls every time you use it.

I have to be honest at first and let you know that I didn't realize that the curling iron had no clamp to hold your hair down with. I'm used to this and I was intimidated. I thought how am I supposed to wrap my hair around the barrel without burning myself? Well, I was right. I did burn myself once or twice before I got the hang of it. All you do is wrap your hair around the barrel, wait a few seconds and let go. I think the no clamp design is unique, but not entirely practical. It's hard to curl the back of your hair and I think you would need a curling iron with a clamp to do that. I do like the design of the iron though, it's a pretty red color and is very sleek looking. It does heat up almost instantly too. It's good for those busy mornings where you want to do your hair but are in a rush.

It takes practice when using this for the first few times. It sounds weird, but it's true. I can guarantee that you will burn yourself if you are not careful. I am slowly getting the hang of it. The curls do come out pretty. They are not very tight Shirly Temple esque curls, but more flowy wavy kind of curls, they look nice though. I do like that the curling iron has four heat settings depending on the texture of your hair. I used the lowest setting because I have thin hair. Someone who had very course, thick hair that is hard to curl, would probably use the highest setting.

This curling iron will definately be replacing my old one!
