Beachy Waves with the NEW Conair Curl Secret 2.0

26 July 2017

My summer beauty routines are all about getting things done with the least amount of effort and heat. Especially when it comes to hair. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that the last thing anyone wants to do when it's 90˚degrees out is pull out the blow dryer and sit under it for 30 minutes. Hard pass. So air drying it is. But I will admit my waves don't always dry evenly, so I DO need a little help with styling tools (thankfully their heat emission is a fraction of blow dryers so I can walk away without sweating a big ol' puddles worth). I usually grab a styling wand but it's been proven that I sometimes can't manage it without burning myself. (Note the nickel size scar on my right wrist for proof of wand vs. Megan take 100.) Anyhow, I'm always looking for something a little more user-friendly to get the beachy wave look without the hassle (or the 2nd degree burns).

If you've been reading along for a while you might remember me teaming up with Conair to try their Curl Secret last September. After finally getting into a rhythm with it, I found it was way easier than using a curling wand, and I got some seriously fun bouncy curls. Well, Conair just launched the NEW Curl Secret 2.0 in-stores nationwide now for just under $100. Now you have the choice of a tighter bouncy curl or a beachy wave with the interchangeable titanium ceramic chambers in 1" and 1 1/4" sizes. I feel like at this point there's no need for a surplus of curling wands because this styling tool basically does-it-all. The curl chamber gently draws hair in and holds it while it's heated from all directions. *Hair should be without tension in the chamber, if it feels tight remove hair immediately and start over.

The Conair Curl Secret 2.0 features 2 heat levels, 6 timer settings and allows you to choose the direction of your curl with right, left and alternating curl direction settings. It doesn't hurt that it heats up in 30 seconds and maintains constant temperature. It also has an auto shut-off after 60 minutes and a sleep mode to lower the temperature after 20 minutes of idle time.

Tips for using Conair Curl Secret 2.0:
Make sure you don't let any flyaways into the barrel, or your hair may get tangled in the styler. It took me 4-5 times of my hair getting tangled to narrow it down to random fly aways getting drawn in with the hair piece I was trying to curl. If you take too much hair, or your hair is not going through the center of the appliance, the Curl Secret 2.0 will stop and beep to indicate a problem. So, take the extra step to make sure it's just a smooth piece of hair going in, you'll thank me later.


The smaller the piece of hair, the better the curl. Work with 1/2" - 1" sections of hair.


You should be working with clean, dry and tangle free hair. Yes, it has a tangle safety feature, but it's always better to be safe than sorry. No one wants to have to gently work their hair out of the curl chamber.


Don't let the learning curve throw you off. It takes some practice to get the hang of it and once you do it's way easier and quicker than using a wand.

The Curl Secret 2.0 is now available in stores nationwide and online for $99.99. Find out where to buy and more info athttps://www.Conair.com/co/101/where-to-buy/168.
