Lazy Girl Approved highlights long-lasting, goof-proof, fuss-free products that can fit into the most minimalist of regimens. If you consider yourself a low-maintenance beauty lover, these product reviews are for you!
There are girls in this world who willingly wake up an hour early just to wash their hair, then painstakingly dry and style it into pin-straight submission or perfectly tousled waves. Alas, I am not one of them, which means I often roll into work with not-so-artful bedhead-y frizz, a sad ponytail, or a topknot if my hair is long enough for it. If you're anything like me, you'll love the Conair Infiniti Pro The Ultimate Brush ($39.99 at London Drugs) as much as I do.
What it is: A battery-operated, anti-frizz brush that releases ions into hair to remove frizz and static, smooth the hair cuticle, and deliver shine.
Packaging-wise: The Infiniti Pro comes with two AAA batteries, so you can use it right away.
Performance-wise: This brush did everything it claimed to on my thick Asian locks; my hair was noticeably smoother and shinier even when it was freshly washed. Don't expect it to radically transform texture—it won't make wavy hair straighter or vice versa, and it won't get rid of stubborn cowlicks or kinks—but it will visibly reduce all-over frizz and fuzziness for a more groomed yet natural-looking style.
Lazy girls will like it because: There's no need to bust out the curling or straightening irons or multiple styling products to achieve polished results; using the Infiniti Pro is as easy as as the flick of a button and a couple of brushstrokes. I usually do a rough dry at the roots with my blowdryer, let the damp ends air-dry, and run the brush through to eliminate frizziness later—totally cuts down on blowdrying time. It's a great quick hair fix on rushed mornings or after a workout (the fact that it's cordless and battery-powered makes it perfect for throwing in the gym bag). What's more, it's probably better for your hair because it lessens your dependence on heat styling. Green beauty lovers will also like it because it reduces the need for preservative- and chemical-laden styling products. Win!
