Moms Gear: The double ceramic curler from Conair produces beautiful, relaxed curls

Moms looking for a quick way to brighten up their hair may want to try the double ceramic curler available through Priced at $17.39, this Conair curler features a 1.5-inch barrel that creates large, relaxed waves – not the tight ones associated with the 1980s.

In fact, many of the curlers now sold in stores have barrels that are one inch or larger because of their tendency to produce those large, loose waves that only a professional hair stylist seems able to do. With the large barrel on this curler, any busy mom can give her hair a fresh look in about 10 to 15 minutes. Simply pull out a dozen or so thick strands of hair, about an inch wide each, and slide them one by one through the curler for a few seconds – voila, close to salon results!

The Conair Double Ceramic Curler heats up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and has 30 different heat settings. These heat settings can be used for different hair types – for example, settings 1-5 are for fragile to fine hair while setting 21-30 are for coarse or thick hair.

Additionally, the curler's instant heat-up feature means there are just a few seconds of wait time before getting started. The curler also comes with a Turbo Heat function that, when pressed, jets the temperature up by close to 30 degrees Fahrenheit – meaning more instant results. One of the best features is the cool-tip end, which allows you to touch the end of the curler for better management without burning the tips of your fingers. Other features of this highly affordable curler are an auto shut-off, double-voltage usage and a two-year warranty.
