Christmas Photo Prep with Conair Curl Secret and Pro 3Q


Since the inception of our family in 2005 we have never taken a family photo. NEVER. My stepdaughter is only with us every other Thanksgiving, so I booked a photographer this year to make sure that we had family photos done in enough time to send out Christmas cards. We’ve never sent out Christmas cards either. I know.

Well me being me, I managed to wait until the last minute to get everyone’s outfits together and somehow my hair found itself on the last minute list as well. It hadn’t been washed in about two weeks so the morning of picture day I woke early to try to get some order about my hair. Although a little nervous about “experimenting” with my hair on such a big day I took the plunge and put the Conair Pro3Q and Conair Curl Secret to the test to hopefully achieve an easy new look with a head full of loose curls.

I got both the Conair Pro3Q and Conair Curl Secret from Walmart in the health and beauty section the night before.

So here  I am pre blow out, I wake up like this….

On a normal day it takes me about 15-20 minutes to get my hair dry. This day only took me SEVEN minutes. S E V E N.

After that epically short blow dry session it was time to start curling. You simply clamp the Curl Secret onto a 1 inch section of your hair and it gently draws your hair into the chamber. You just  hold and after a series of beeps that  indicate your curl is ready you release and voila!! Here is a quick video I made showing how easy it was to use the Conair Curl Secret. I’m in love.

Once I got the hang of it I was done in about 30 minutes.  After finishing  I played around with a few different styles to possibly wear for our Christmas photos. You’ll have to come back to see which one I actually rocked!

      They did and I was surprised. It was so simple, y’all are going to get tired of me and my curls in the new year. I’ve always loved my hair with curls but I hate the hair salon and hadn’t had much luck with the wand. This is the perfect solution.

        Mimi!!! I went to WalMart thinking I was going to scoop up one of those curlers….I should’ve pulled it up before going into the store because when I saw that 99.00 price tag I clutched my nonexistent pearls, LOL!! I’ll be back for it after Christmas though!

      I think you could. It’s not like the wand where you have to wrap or roll. You literally clamp it on your hair and it does the rest of the work.

      A few days?!! I’m a week in and these curls are still holding. I just made sure to pin curl at night and cover with a scarf.

    I have never taken a professional family photo either yet not sent out Christmas cards. I thought I was the only one. I’m working on getting Michael’s birthday favor picture together. There’s always next year. Sigh!

      Always next year…and the next and so on. I could’ve easily let this get by us but I was determined this year at 35 to do adult things, like send out Christmas cards. Although they still haven’t made it in the mail!
