Winter Hair Styling Tips ~ Easy, Beachy Waves with Conair Infiniti You Wave Ultra #G!veaway




Winter hair blahs getting the best of you?







As for the Teen Diva and myself, with our long tresses, a bad hair day can completely throw off our mood. The winter season, with dry heat and plenty of static electricity abounding seems to result in a disproportionate amount of those hair challenging days.


Winter Hair Styling Tips


Fortunately, using the right hair products and the right hair styling tools can turn a potential bad hair day into a fab hair day! If you are battling the harsh winter elements, try these tips from Conair.
  • Tame winter static and flyaways with leave-in conditioner. Wash and towel-dry hair, spray conditioner on and comb-through for even distribution. Slip on your favorite sweater and go!
  • If you wear a hat, cap or scarf to ward off the cold make sure it is loose enough to allow scalp circulation
  • Use a natural boar bristle hairbrush with a wooden handle to reduce hair static. If all else fails, run a dryer sheet over your locks!
  • For deep winter conditioning, try honey! Massage ½ cup clover honey into wet hair from roots to tips. Wrap your hair in plastic, and then wrap a towel turban around the plastic. Leave on 20 minutes, shampoo and condition. Sweet!
Hair Tools That Tame

Creating a fab hair day in the winter isn't necessarily about a controlled look; rather it is about taking control. Look ahead to warmer days and embrace an easy, beachy look to lighten your spirits. The Conair Infiniti You Wave Ultra makes it easy!

Anything goes with the Conair Infiniti You Wave Ultra! Specifically designed to create a casual look that appear effortless and carefree, using the You Wave Ultra was simple to master. With 30 second instant Ultra High heat in this unique three barrel design, both the Diva and I were able to easily create a fresh, easy style that was both attractive and mood setting. Created with Tourmaline Ceramic technology, the You Wave Ultra helps to reduce frizz and and eliminate static; tremendous benefits for the season!


For a quick style, simply take a top section of hair, starting near the roots and hold within the You Wave for ten seconds and then move down the strand. Altering the angle at which you use the You Wave helps to create a style with all over, easy appeal. We found that pinning up the upper hair layers of our hair and working through the thickness, from under to top layers, added even more bounce and volume.

Our Take
While the diva doesn't crimp her hair very often, this Mom burned through a few crimpers in the 80's! (flashbacks - shudder). We both loved the softer look afforded by the You Wave Ultra, finding it easy to create a quick style and excellent for increasing volume when our schedules allowed for addition time to wave by layers. With a suggested retail of $45.99, national availability at your favorite drug stores and mass retailers, as well as at the Conair website, and limited five year warranty, the Conair Infiniti You Wave Ultra is an easy addition to your hair styling arsenal, as well as a great gift idea!

My hair is frizzy when the weather is humid (which is often here). I've wanted a curler/styler for a while as it would help smooth my hair out.

jill24295 said...

I work as a massage therapist, so often when I come home, my hair is listless and shapeless from having been pulled back all day. If I want to go out, I need to start from ground zero washing it and styling it. The hairdryer would be the first thing to help, then this prize or the hot rollers would be great to make it look perfect and like I hadn't worked at all that day.

I really like Conair's Tourmaline Shine Brush. All their brushes are good though, they're classics!

kcthelush said...

My worst hair days are the ones where my hair just hangs...flat, limp & lifeless. I think if I utilized the right styling tools/techniques, this problem could be eliminated. I'd really like to try the Conair YouWave Ultra in conjunction with one of their blowdryers :)

rj7777 said...

My worst hair day is when I had dyed my hair an orange color and my hair that didn't have a perm was brighter orange. I had to have my hair colored and they made me look like my collie dog! My hair was fried. They finally got it right. i was there all day and into the night. A nightmare. I would have to curl it to get it to be less frizzy with rollers that could be conair.

Charlotte V. said...

I love the "Infiniti by Conair You Curl" because it doesn't have a clamp (wrap around), reduces frizz, and no hot spots to damage your hair!

CharLuvsAbby3(at)yahoo(dot)com

Charlotte V. said...

Wow the worse hair day I've had was when my best friend noticed a bald spot in my head. It was caused from certain chemicals in the coloring a beauty school used, and other horrible hair tools I was using. It was a perfect circle that I couldn't hide whatsoever!Right smack in the middle! I had to get Hydrocortizone shots in my head for my hair to grow back. Conair helps to solve this by making products that don't damage your hair (unlike another brand).
