I Heart My Hairstyle

Everyone knows this about me…

I hate my hair.  I HATE it! If you know me in real life, then you’ve even spent some time in your own life feeling a bit sorry for me because my hair is a nightmare.  The only hairstyles I could ever pull off on my own were the result of an hour of flat ironing.  A little moisture in the air, perspiration, or even worse, rain, and my hair immediately returned to it’s natural state of looking like the over-used end of a wicker broom.  It takes me an hour to pull off the simplest hairstyles that don’t even look like I did anything besides run a brush through my hair.  I kid you not, I’ve actually cried and thrown adult tantrums while brushing my hair.

Ouch! Ouch! This isn’t fair.  This is stupid. It doesn’t take ANYONE this long to brush their hair. I HATE MY HAIR!

Ugly Hairstyles


That right there is a knot! I had already been brushing my hair for about 15-20 minutes, gotten a full-blown headache, and still had that knot to get through.  That’s when I wrote the post about why “I hate girls with pretty hair!”   I usually end up with a brush full of yanked out hair each morning.  When I let it air dry, the frizz makes me feel so frustrated.  On the rare occasion when someone tells me I have beautiful hair, I absolutely cringe! It’s too hard to make it look good.  It’s not pretty.  If those people only knew! I just want pretty hair that doesn’t take me all day to style.  Around this time last year, I saw quite a few posts about the new Infiniti Pro by Conair® Curl Secret®.    I even had a few friends who had one and swore by it.  Honestly, I just didn’t believe them.  That’s the only reason I hadn’t bought one already.  When #CollectiveBias gave me the chance to try out both the Infiniti Pro by Conair® Curl Secret® and the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 3Q™ Brushless Motor Dryer, I was overjoyed, and immediately overwhelmed.  I was terrified.  I couldn’t believe these products would work on my hair.  I’m making myself clear, right? I did NOT think it would work.  I wanted it to work though.  I was desperate for it to work, but I was preparing myself to be disappointed.  I was prepared to either write the inevitable truth, or withdraw from this project.

OMG! I couldn’t believe these products actually worked on MY HAIR!

From this day forward, I #HeartMyHair! Thanks to Conair®, I can have pretty hair, too!  I washed my hair and felt frustrated that even wet, it looks dry and brittle.

Hard To Style Hairstyles


I prepared my work station.

I dried my hair with the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 3Q™ Brushless Motor Dryer

I kind of freaked out the second I turned it on.  I was not expecting the power behind the brushless motor.  It dries equivalent to a 2000 watt dryer, with much less energy use. It also dries fast! I’m talking, super quick.  I was shouting out at Antonio to come snap a picture so I could show you this process and the section was dry before he got to me!

I separated my hair into a few sections and started curling.

Still, I was skeptical.  So, I waited for it to “fall out.”  FORTY EIGHT HOURS LATER, after a night of tossing and turning, and a full day of working, it looked like this!

I think I owe a few people some apologies!

I know my friends who swore by the Infiniti Pro by Conair® Curl Secret® last year have never ever given me reason to doubt them.  I was just convinced that I would never be someone who could have DIY beautiful hairstyles, especially involving curls!  I’m a believer!!!  These revolutionary products go straight to this year’s Holiday Gift Guide.  I absolutely recommend them, over and over and over again!
