Conair infiniti pro hair dryer review

Until recently, I had owned exactly two hair dryers in my life. The first was a travel-sized generic brand model my grandma gave to me that I used until a malfunction turned it into a miniature flame thrower (that was an exciting morning!). The second was a basic Conair dryer that I got to replace the flame thrower, and it gave me a solid seven years of nearly daily use until it finally crapped out last month.

When it came time to replace it, I considered buying one of those super expensive hair dryers that claim to leave your locks perfectly dry and super shiny in 3 minutes flat. I looked into a number of different models that ranged in price from $100 to $300. I was willing to pay top dollar for a high quality product, but in the back of my mind I felt a nagging loyalty to Conair (the hair products brand, not the movie, although I feel a strong emotional allegiance to both). Since my previous hair dryer had lasted SO LONG and not given me any problems, I felt I owed it to Conair to at least read up on their current offerings. I found some good reviews of the Conair Infiniti Pro, and for less than $40, the price couldn’t be beat. I decided to scrap the idea of a spendy hair dryer and went to Walgreens and got an Infiniti Pro instead. Did I make the right call? Read on to find out! Continue reading

Betty Draper’s Hair Dryer

Have you ever noticed that a) travel hair dryers are sometimes more expensive than regular blow dryers (why?) and that b) they’re sometimes uglier? It’s not too often when packing our bags for a fun trip (which in itself can be pretty fun) that we get excited about tucking in our travel dryer. Now this has all changed thanks to this adorable miniature-sized tool with vintage-inspired graphics (so very Betty Draper). Added bonus: a cute travel case!

The Ferrari Hair Dryer: For Indulgent Dudes Or Blowout-Obsessed Ladies?

Some people get a real high from driving fast cars. Others just like the windswept look. Now, for both types, there’s a new hair dryer by Conair made with parts from Ferraris. Mimicking the design of the Italian sports car, the gadget boasts a groundbreaking “ball bearing design.” We’re not sure what that is, but apparently it will make your blow dryer run smooth. This baby’s also got some real power—the tool has a Ferrari-like engine with 2,200 watts behind it, and can produce wind speeds of 80 mph. The $400 model is for professional use, but if it wasn’t … we’d expect that Pauly D would own one. Vroom, vroom. [Bella Sugar] Continue reading
