THE HAIR TOOL YOU NEED: THE CONAIR INFINITI PRO SPIN ROTATING BRUSH

A few months ago I was on a hunt for a tool that would give me a salon blow-out at home. I love the feeling of having my hair freshly washed and dried and not having to worry about it for at least four days. After much research I came across the Infiniti Pro by Conair— a rotating styler and hot brush.

I’m going to be honest, my first attempt was frustrating. I basically put my hands up …
