Conair Infiniti Pro Review
With Tourmaline-infused Ceramic plates, this flat iron is designed to flight frizz and make hair healthier and shinier as it straightens it.
In the past, when most flat irons were made with metal plates, it was often very difficult to get perfectly straight hair, as the plates would create static and cause some small hairs to fly away from the rest.
They were also notorious for frying the hair and sapping away what little moisture might be in the shaft. Tourmaline, however, helps to seal the shaft as it passes along it, locking in nutrients and moisture, instead of steaming them away.
The Conair Infiniti Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron comes in three different sizes: one inch, 1.5 inches, and two inches. The 1-inch model is a royal blue, while the 1.5-inch unit is pink, and the 2-inch model is black.
There are also a range of temperature settings to choose from, up the 446 degrees Fahrenheit, which can be manipulated by the means of + and – buttons on the side of the unit and an LED temperature readout.
The heater inside the unit is made from ceramic as well, so it conducts heat to the tourmaline and ceramic plates perfectly and evenly, preventing hot spots and ineffective styling.
The range of sizes makes it easy for every person to find a size and temperature that works for your specific hair.
The unit is also designed to heat up in less than twenty seconds, which can significantly reduce amount of time it takes to get ready in the morning. The heat selection process is very simple, and you can easily find a setting that matches your hair’s specific needs.
Unlike other models that claim to have ceramic plates, but really just have metal plates coated with a layer of ceramic, this unit really does have solid ceramic plates, which pump out the heat and remain smooth even after hundreds of uses. The different sizes also allow for a number of different styles beyond just straight.
If you do not need very high heat in order to get your hair to straighten (if you have very fine hair, for example) then you may find that the higher heat settings are too hot for your hair. There is also the need to hold the unit closed at the top in order to get the proper clamping action that most women need in order to get perfectly straight hair.
As one of the only units on the market with solid ceramic plates and heater, this is by far one of the best deals when it comes to flat irons. With a two-year warranty on parts and maintenance, there is almost no risk in trying out this flat iron, which can be used not only to straighten hair, but also to curl, flip, and wave it as desired. The easy heat controls and varied sizes make this flat iron series perfect for just about every type of hair.
