Happy Aloha Friday.  I figured that I would stop in today and share with you some info on a product I’ve been using over the last month.  I don’t use heat on my hair often, well – honestly, it’s a rare occasion.  But, I have been showering late at night lately since my schedule has me out later in the day and to keep from going to bed with wet hair, I have been using a dryer to help a sistah out a bit.  Today, I’m going to be sharing with you the Conair Infiniti Pro 584NP-6 Hair Dryer, so let’s get started, shall we?

The Infinity PRO by Conair comes with Conair’s lightest weight professional AC motor.  Retailing for just $59.99, it is a 1875 Watt hair dryer that offers you 3 heat settings and 2 speed settings for the perfect control over styling  your hair.  Ceramic technology provides infrared heat to protect your hair from heat damage and a true cold shot button to provide you with a burst of cold when you  need it.  With concentrator and diffuser attachments and a removable filter so you have all the tools on hand for your favorite hair styles and to dry your hair.

The hair dryer is quite lightweight and has been comfortable for me to hold in my hands, even with my carpal tunnel syndrome.  I also have very long hair and love that my hands, arms and wrists don’t feel like they just had a workout after using the dryer.  With it’s Ionic Technology – you will get up to 75% less frizz (compared to hair dryers with  natural ion generation) and I love that it dryers my hair quickly, without causing my hair to feel dry or brittle.

The Infinity PRO by Conair is definitely powerful considering the weight of the dryer.  My hair is long (as I mentioned previously), but below my waist, so drying my curly hair can be a pain in my behind.  With this dryer I find that I am able to dry my hair quickly which is wonderful.  Besides the Ionic Technology, the Infinity PRO also has Ceramic Technology to provide infrared heat to help protect your hair from heat damage.  Since I have curls, I want to be able to dry my hair without the added frizz and without the damage, especially since my hair is so long.  This dryer has definitely been a great addition to my hair game.

So – now that I gave you a bunch of the details on what it does to my hair and how it works, let’s talk about the gorgeous look of this hair dryer.  The beautiful champagne color with rose gold accents makes a great addition to any beauty lovers vanity.  I am loving how this looks and I was beyond impressed with the packaging overall.  It’s also very durable considering how lightweight the dryer is.  I have dropped this on my tile flooring at least 5 different times and it’s held up extremely well without breaking.  Of course, I don’t suggest you doing that.

“Lightweight yet powerful, perfect for precision styling.”

While I’m not big on using heat on my hair often, when I do, I always want to make sure I’m using something that will not add any additional stress to my hair.  Living in Hawaii in general already takes a toll on my hair because of the humidity and warmth, not to mention the fact that my hair is curly and long – all things that contribute to my hair being so finicky.  A good styling tool is always a great thing to have in my beauty arsenal.  Considering the cost of this dryer and how it easy it is to use and how it works, I definitely would recommend it to anyone.   This dryer is definitely a spring and summer beauty hack – leaving you with dry and styled hair in shorter drying time.  I definitely suggest anyone checking it out.

So what about you?  Can you see adding this hair dryer to your hair routine?

When it comes to wearing my curly hair down, I tend to go the easy route, easy peesy and as little work and effort as possible.  Let’s face it, I have really long hair so my arms enjoy the freedom of allowing my hair to air dry if at all possible.  The problem with air drying (especially during the Fall and Winter months) is that it can take literally ALL DAY LONG if my hair is left to dry naturally.  I’m not about that life, seriously – who’s got time to wait around for your hair to dry.  Since I don’t use heat on my hair most of the year – I try to keep it to a minimum during the colder months – but I also rely on products that work and that I can trust.  The Dura CHI Hand Shot Hair Dryer has been my new best friend, or shall I say my Curly Hair’s new companion lately.  It allows me to dry or style my hair easily without the fuss and today I’m going to share this interesting and fun product with you.

The Dura CHI Hand Shot Hair Dryer was launched this year (2016) in August.  I have had this product in my possession now for a few months and have been giving it a good run for trial and error.  This tool helps and aids in  time constraints of hair styling by providing efficiency and comfort through its cutting-edge design, even allowing for hand-free use.  Since there is no conventional dryer handle, the hand shot dryer allows for consistent control over the dryer to produce a multitude of styling techniques with ease.

The Dura CHI Hand Shot Dryer helps to cater to all hair types since the dryer also features a state of the art, touch sensitive control screen that offer numerous head and speed setting combinations to deliver optimal results.

So – with a hefty price tag, you must be wondering what my thoughts are overall on the product.  There’s the thing – I really like it.  I have several diffusers and a blow dryer that literally just died on me and since my hair is soooo long, my arms and wrists get tired quickly with a traditional hair dryer or diffuser.  I’m not saying that my arms didn’t get tired while using Dura CHI, let’s be real here… if you had to dry my hair (which is past my buttocks), your arms would be tired too.  But as someone who suffers from Carpal Tunnel syndrome, I found that I was able to adjust how I hold the unit to accommodate for the achy pain in my wrist.  You can’t do that easily with other dryers because holding anywhere other than the traditional handle will literally burn your hands.

I absolutely love the fact that this dryer has a hands-free drying stand which helps with the drying process of my hair as well.  I can literally sit the dryer up on a flat surface and just let it dry on it’s own without using it.  It dries my  hair quickly, consistently all around and I LOVE how it feels in my hands when I’m diffusing my hair.  It may not seem traditional to many – but having long hair and being able to grab the length of the blow dryer to diffuse the lengths of my hair, is much easier with this unit.

The unit itself is heavy – so if you are accustomed to a light weight blow dryer, you may not like this particular one.  I find that it is not heavy for me because it allows me to control how I use the product fairly easily.  It offers balance when diffusing the lengths of my hair and again – holding this while catching my entire hair hasn’t been a struggle.  If you are a hair dresser and  do blow outs, the ease of use of this unit may be something you’d like – because blow drying someone else’s hair for me was really comfortable and easy to control.

With a touch sensitive control dial and LED lights display to help provide you with an easily adjustable temperature and speed levels with a single touch – the Dura CHI offers you great ease of use.  You can adjust the temperature settings using the right control panel and change the temperature range from Cool to Hot.  There is also a screen locking feature.  Lock the screen during use to prevent accidental temperature or speed changes by pressing the Lock button on the unit.

The price of this unit is a bit on the high side, but you are paying for a brand name that offers quality products, while getting all the cool features that this dryer provides – soft touch grip handle for non-slip control, ceramic heater 1875 watts of power and a touch sensitive screen.  With my curly hair – I am very particular with the tools I use on my hair – mainly because it has taken me years to get my hair to the state it is and it’s a work in process consistently.  So, I really wanted a product that offers awesome technology, ease of use and that would still work for my hair.  the Dura CHI has offered all of those things and I’ve been enjoying it.

I’ve used my fair share of hair tools on my hair over the years and I have to say – I’m totally crushin on this one.  Yes, again – it’s costly, but after years of throwing my hair around like it was some unused toy – I realized that I really needed to invest in some good things to keep it looking great.  If are looking for a little help in blow drying or styling your hair and find the traditional blow dryers a little uncomfortable to hold as I did, you may really like this one from CHI – I do!

Let’s face it, not everyone is blessed with curly hair.  I’m really lucky in that I have coiled curls that grace my long luscious locks, but those that don’t have curls need to improvise some.  Since my natural curls are coiled and there are days that I may want softer, larger barrel size curls, I turn to one of my favorite hair tool brands.  I have a pretty nice collection of Nume goodies from the Lustrum Set, Classic Reverse Wand and the 25mm Classic Wand so it’s a hair tool line that I truly do enjoy.  As I say, when you don’t have them yourself – improvise and Nume has the tools to help with that.  Nume celebrates their 5 year anniversary (Happy Birthday Nume!) and with that I want to share with you one of my favorite hair tools and some fun discounts you can utilize to get in on some of this hair tool goodness for yourself.

If you are looking to change up your style some, I definitely suggest the classic wand.  I have the 25mm which is a common barrel size and perfect for someone who is a beginner hair tool user or advanced.  The Classic Wand has a 100% Tourmaline-infused ceramic coated barrel and utilizes an innovative clipless design for crease-free curls.  Since I naturally have dry hair – it’s great to use a wand instead of a curling iron because the clip can cause creases and with dry hair, it literally can ruin all that work… so I prefer a wand vs. a curling iron.  The curling wand has negative ion technology and heats up to 410°F.  What I love the most is that with your purchase/order you also get a heat-resistant glove that helps with the curling process.  I put emphasis on “heat resistant” because you can still burn your fingers, so use extreme caution still.

Since I have natural curls that tend to be really coiled and tight, I like to brush my hair out with my fingers to soften my natural curls.  Using a Flat Iron can help straighten your natural curls prior to adding them back in with the curling wand.  Since the Classic Wand has that tourmaline-infused ceramic coated barrel, when using it on your hair you are locking in shine and your curls will last longer.  This type of curling wand is perfect for those beachy waves we all love to rock during the summer months or voluminous glam waves for that night out with the girls or a date.  This wand is perfect for use on medium or long hair and since it heats up quickly, it makes the process of creating your perfect waves easy as pie.

curly hair, curly hair don't care, Nume, Nume Products, curling wand, hair, curls, easy curls, nume tools, nume curling wand, discount,

To create the soft beachy waves I am sporting today – I finger combed my natural curls so that they were not so tight and then grabbed 1 inch sections of my hair.  Starting at various lengths of my hair (some near the root, some near the bottom and the middle of my locks) I added the curl using the Nume 25mm Classic Wand.  Once I completed my whole head of hair, I finger combed through my hair once again to pull out the curls so they were not so tight.  Since I added the curls to different sections and lengths of my hair, it gave me much needed volume and created a fuller textured look.  To set the curls, I added a shine spray and scrunched my hair with some Argan Oil.  Since I have thin hair but my hair is long… I need to create more volume and add to the bulk of my hair so I also spray with a light leave-in conditioner and I’m good to go.  If you want more curls then texture, you can always skip running your fingers through your hair and leave the curls intact and set with a setting or hair spray.  Make sure prior to adding any heat to your hair that you use a heat protectant so that you are protecting your locks from damage.

Creating beautiful locks with curls for days is as easy as moving your arms above your head.  It can take a little practice sometimes, but once you find a routine you enjoy – you will find that it is easier than you thought.  Since my hair is just about past my butt, it can take me a while to get through my whole head of hair, but it’s all worth it in the end.

I naturally have very curly hair and sometimes tight curls like my hair can have are difficult to style or use a different way other than the norm.  I also have really long hair so styling my hair with tools can be painful on my arms and often times I decide to give up midway through the process of trying to style my locks.  I love trying products that offer great results and recently I have been using the T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron and giving my hair a little vavavoom!

T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron - Easy Effortless Voluminous Curls

I was immediately wowed by the packaging of this unit and seeing as how I am in love with anything gold or rose gold, once I set my sights on this beauty, I immediately was in love.  This styling iron features gorgeous accents that make anyone feel like they are holding something luxurious in their hands.  This one-of-a-kind gyroscopic styling iron features patent-pending motion-sensing technology and an auto-rotating barrel to create gorgeous curls and waves with the simple turn of your wrist.  I think it is absolutely genius that the Twirl 360 senses the movement of your hand and automatically rotates in the direction you desire and at the same time forming polished, beautiful curls every single time.  Curling my hair is so simple with this tool.

T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron - Easy Effortless Voluminous Curls

With a 1.25″ barrel, you easily get voluminous curls for any length your hair may be.  As I mentioned previously, my hair is fairly long and while it took a little finesse and a little practice, I was able to achieve gorgeous barreled curls that are very different from my normal tight curls that I have naturally.  The barrel heats up quickly you have up to 5 heat settings (260-410 degrees F).  The T3 Twirl 360 also has Digital Singlepass Technology which constantly measures and adjusts the temperature across the entire barrel for an even, consistent heat.

It took me a little while to get used to the speed settings of the tool, but I am happy and glad that it has 2 speed settings – slower speed for beginners or shorter hair and faster speed for experts or longer hair.  Once I had the opportunity to use it a few times, I was able to get used to the speed for my hair length and creating my waves was effortless and easy.  It is amazing that I can curl my entire head of hair in half the time I would with a traditional curling iron or wand.  The wide, curved grip makes it easy to locate and comfortable to use from any direction.  The tourmaline & ceramic barrel helps to create a shiny, smooth finish that makes my hair look like I just stepped onto the runway or out of a salon.

T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron - Easy Effortless Voluminous Curls

Using this styling iron is simple – with the Go Button, just press and turn your wrist to activate the gyroscopic technology and you are on your way to gorgeous curls.

“Gyroscopic Technology – Used in aviation, space exploration and hi-tech electronic devices for its sensitivity and precision, gyroscopic technology detects motion and triggers automatic barrel movement by the simple twist of your wrist, creating easy, flawless curls every time.”

And, I love a product that helps to combat frizz.  The infrared energy from the Tourmaline gemstone fights frizz and seals the hair cuticle while digital SinglePass Technology ensures fast heat up and consistent heat delivery along the barrel.  I have tried automatic curling irons before, but this one – definitely wowed me consistently.

T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron - Easy Effortless Voluminous Curls

Since my hair is naturally very curly, I took the T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron used it on each strand to first soften my natural curls, adding shine to my hair and eliminating the frizz while kind of straightening my natural curls out.  Then I went back with the curling iron to create large barrel curls that are soft and add volume to my long hair.  The end result is what you see above.

The T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron can be purchased at Sephora for $230 (retail).  The product itself has gorgeous packaging as I stated before and I found that the learning curve and overall use of this product was easy even with the challenges I originally had with my long hair.  If you have shorter hair than mine, this would be a great addition to your hair styling arsenal, creating gorgeous curls or volume with ease.

Have you tried this product or have you had your eyes on it?  What kind of styling products do you have that you enjoy using?
