Doubles (Hair Care) Friday #1: Conair You Style™ 2in1 Brush & Pro 2-inch Spin Air Brush (review & GIVEAWAY!)

Time for a May Giveaway! In honor of Doubles Week, I’m reviewing and giving away two fab hair care tools. From Conair.

You Style™ 2in1 Brush

Blurb: New Technology...The Conair You Style™ brush is actually two brushes in one. Start with a flat brush for everyday brushing. Use for blow-dry styling to straighten and smooth hair. Slide the button and collapse the sides to convert to a rounded brush. Get added lift at roots. Create soft waves or finish ends to curl under or flip up. Go from style to finish!

Pro 2-inch Spin Air Brush

Blurb: Releases up to 100X more concentrated ions than ions created from natural sources, to help reduce frizz and enhance shine! Volumizes and shines as you dry. Ceramic technology safely dries and promotes healthy hair. Faster, smoother hair, less frizz. 2 heat settings plus cool setting for all hair types. Multidirectional brush rotates in both directions to volumize and shine.

Conair has really got some fine items. The You Style Brush is a great idea. I found it very easy to use (and appreciated the boar/nylon bristle combo). And it really did go from flat to round brush with just a simple push of a button. A great way to avoid having (or travelling with) two brushes. Nicely done!

I was most eager to try the Spin Air Brush; but I had to wait until all of the holiday hoopla was over so I could have time to play with it. And play with it I did! It was like having a new toy (a toy that gave me pretty hair). I tried using it with both wet and damp hair, and found it worked much better with damp hair.

This item gets tons of points for being user-friendly. After about 2 minutes I was familiar with the buttons; and after another 5 minutes, I felt perfectly at ease using them. There are three heat settings (high, low and cool), and you can control the spin function with the touch of a finger. What I especially love is that you can spin the brush in either direction, and quickly stop the spinning just by letting go! The bristles are soft, but grabbed my hair and wrapped it around the barrel without any tangling.

Did I mention it was easy to use?

Not only was it was it easy, I got a wonderful blowout. My hair was very smooth, shiny and it was easy to get both volume (by holding the brush at the roots) and pretty curled ends (by letting the brush spin for an extra few seconds at the ends). I love this!

And…the folks at Conair are partnering with me for a GIVEAWAY! One lucky reader is going to win both the 2in1 Brush and the Spin Air Brush!
