I have always been that person who has a drawer full of hair tools, but it’s actually pretty rare that I style my hair. It’s usually because of how long it takes. And isn’t it just easier to pop it up in a high bun, when I’m having a bad hair day (which is like four out of seven days of the week)?
So when I saw this rotating dryer brush I was hoping that it would make all my hair dreams come true – salon-like style, in less than 20 minutes.
The Conair Infinity Pro Spin Brush is the latest addition to my hair tool collection. Here are the specs:
- Multi-directional rotating brush (can be used with or without spin function)
- Ionic technology to reduce frizz and enhance shine
- 2 heat settings, 1 cool setting
- 2 inch barrel
A little information about my hair, so you know what I’m working with: I have medium length, straight hair. It’s colour-treated, but well maintained, so it has some breakage, but not a sufficient amount of damage. I like to keep the amount of times that I heat style my hair (use a hair dryer, straightening iron, or curling iron) to a minimum – Maybe three times a month, maximum.
I’ll start by saying that as with any hair tool, there’s definitely a learning curve to this. Just like every other time I style my hair, I sectioned it off into six sections – a part down the middle, then a bottom, middle, and top section. I used the tool on damp hair, about 15 minutes after showering. I would take medium to large sections of hair, start at the roots and work my way down to the middle of the section with the dryer (without using the rotating function). I would then turn the rotating function as I approached the ends, and let go of the section, to style my layers and make them curl in, to frame my face.
When using this tool, make sure to go slowly, because there’s a good chance that your hair will get tangled on your first few tries (I know mine did). A good way to make sure that your hair doesn’t get tangled around the rotating barrel is to make sure that you brush out the section a few times before initiating the rotating function. If you want to use the rotating function on the entire section of hair as you are drying, I’d recommend to tightly hold the section by the tip, away from the root, and release the strand as you approach the hair tip.
Once I got the hang of the tool it became very easy to use. I could get my hair from wet and wavy to looking like a fresh blow-out in about 15 minutes.
Although it claims to reduce frizz, I still saw a lot more frizz than I am used to…the frizz was pretty out of control (you can see the frizz in the “after” photo, but it got worse as the day went on). HOWEVER, the next time I used the hair tool I made sure to apply mousse to my damp hair, before styling, which made a big difference (photo below).

Ahhhh, much better. That’s the secret – styling products! Shout-out to L’Oreal Studio Line ‘Indestructable Volume Mousse’. But all in all, I’m super happy with the Conair Infiniti Pro Spin Brush. Using this tool is way easier than trying to do a blow-out with a bulky dryer in one hand and a big round brush in the other. I plan on continuing to use this tool, and I ‘m certain that it won’t end up in the “hair tool graveyard” drawer.
If you plan on trying out the Infiniti Pro Spin Brush, I’d recommend that you take your time, use styling products, and practice, practice, practice!
