Conair Infiniti You Curl: Does it Work?

By Lauren Keith - bio | email

DEXTER, MO  (KFVS) - When you see the Conair Infiniti You Curl iron, you notice it's different than your normal iron. The You Curl iron does not have a clamp or a regular-shaped barrel.  It's cone-shaped. As the commercial shows, that's supposed to give you curls that last....for infinity. well, you get the idea.

"My hair is so long, it takes so long to curl. I thought maybe it'd work better," said Kaycee Dukes of Dexter.

Seventeen-year-old Kaycee Dukes says it normally takes her an hour and a half to curl all her locks with a regular curling iron. With the Infiniti You Curl, she simply wraps sections around it and the curls come out perfectly spiraled.

With a regular iron she shows us the curls are just not as defined.  There's no denying the Infiniti You Curl gives great shape and isn't all that hard to maneuver, but Kaycee's used it for a few weeks now. She's found a few things that'll make the curls droop.

"It says it can work with wide sections of hair. I found that doesn't work as well. With smaller sections, it works better than a regular curling iron."

Let's also point out you need long longs like Kaycee's to truly get the bounce out of this. I try it on my short layers just to see.

"I feel like I'm going to burn myself!" I say.

The result: some really tight curls that remind you of Shirley Temple. I think I'd like it on longer strands though. I'm not digging the price though.

"It's pretty pricey," agreed Kaycee.

It's $50 if you buy it off Conair's official website, and Kaycee says she wouldn't use it all of the time because it takes awhile to wrap your hair around this iron.

"Probably for special occasions."

She says she'll use both her regular iron for those larger sections and the Infiniti You Curl for the places she wants a tightly-defined curl. Remember, she said her curls did stay put longer with this iron than those looser locks she curled with a regular barrel.

"I'd probably give it a 'C+."

I can wrap my head around that. The Conair Infiniti You Curl has some pros and cons to it, and bounces back with a C+ on this Does it Work test.

    The consensus was clear in Ms. Beers' third grade class at Jefferson Elementary, the Fingerlings baby monkey is a toy they want.
