If you’re on a budget but need a new set of hair straighteners, consider the deal on these Conair Infiniti Pro 1/2" Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Hair Straighteners which are currently on offer from Walmart Canada. Originally priced at $44.96, they’ve been reduced by more than half price down to only $22. And of course, that will be with free shipping to most areas in Canada as well.
I spotted this deal in the clearance section of Walmart.ca. As we’ve seen in the past, the clearance items can sell out quite fast, so I really have no idea how long these will be available at this price.
A bit about them:
This flat iron allows you to get closer to the scalp for totally straight, salon like results. The true ceramic heater gives you instant heat up and recovery while the tourmaline ceramic promotes less frizz for healthy, shiny hair.
I’ve had a google search for this model and similar models elsewhere, to try and give you an accurate price comparison. I spotted these Conair straighteners which look to be the same ones (except in a different colour) for $37.98 @ Best Buy Canada (but sold out anyway). Over at Sears.ca, these ones are priced at $29.99, but you’d have shipping fees on top of that. Another fairly similar set of straighteners over here on Amazon.ca is coming in at $69.85 with free shipping; those are in lime green though! Finally, there’s another similar set here at Giant Tiger for $40 with free shipping. From this research (and more), I think the $22 price from Walmart is really excellent.
Now, these Conair straighteners are fairly low priced, so their performance probably isn’t going to compare to the expensive GHD sets which they use at the salon. However, if you’re only an occasional user of straighteners, then these might be just the ticket. If you only use straighteners once a month, you probably don’t want to fork out a few hundred bucks for one of the professional sets.
From my personal experience, I actually bought an expensive set of GHD straighteners. I bought these about eight years ago, and they perform just as well today as they did on the day that I bought them. For me, this was something of an investment. I’ve got long dark hair which reaches my butt, so I need a good set of straighteners. If I didn’t use them, I’d just be a large fur ball all the time!
