InStyler?

i have been looking for reviews of the instyler and finally broke down and said, "screw it" and ordered the buy one get one free deal. if i don't like it, i'll send it back.

i have naturally curly hair that is kinda corse and is very hard to straighten with a flat iron alone. i have a hot comb that i use to get the roots straight but that thing took some serious practice. i'm hoping that the instyler will do the job as it advertises and as you guys say.

oh, and i upgraded to the more expensive one... the rapid heat one, i think it's called. so i'll keep my fingers crossed.

I HIGHLY recommend the instyler. I have natural waves and works wonderfully on my hair. No frizzies. I have two mixed daughters with VERY tight curls. It makes there hair so soft. I dont even have to put hair grease in their hair. I do put in leave-in conditioner though. I purchased mine on ebay. It is much cheaper. They have the buy 1 get one for $110.00 and free shipping. Cheaper than the instyler website. My sister and I went in together and bought them. We spent $55.00 apiece for them and it is worth every penny. It heats up quick and styles my hair very fast. I love the shine and how soft it makes my hair. I give it 5 stars....

I have heard that some people haven't had good experiences with it but you know that's the chance you take when you try something. Sometimes it just doesn't work for you. Thank God the Instyler works for me because I have a whole new hair cut because of it. I'm really, really happy with mine. Happy Holidays to everyone!

My niece and I went together and just ordered this (offer where you can buy two) the other day. Just by coincidence I was watching The View a week ago which was a rerun. They said they were going to do a segment on hair care products/devices that Barbara Walter's long time hair stylist recommends. Since we had to leave the house, I recorded it. One of the things he discussed was the InStyler and he recommended it. He said it took a little practice, but once you got used to it you would get good results. Am hoping with his recommendation and those on this board that I will like it.

Right now I am using a flat iron with good results, but wanted something that would add a little volume to my style. Am hopeful this will be it.

Has anyone purchased this lately and for all of you who have had it for a while, is it still working. I just looked on infomercial review and it had several current reviews and they all say something different. I wonder if anyone who has a mixture of 3b and possibly some 3a hair has tried this. If you are thinking of buying a Kstyler don't do it. I liked mine even though my hair was to hot to hold sometimes (unlike what the commercial said) but I can't get it to come on and stay on and when I called the company they said even though I have a warranty I would have to pay 19.95 shipping cost for a new one. No where did I see that information and I have found several reviews which said they had the same problem. Each one of them were told something different about returning it and getting a new one. Most said it took months to get a new one if they got one and when they did, it did the same thing again. Now I am considering the InStyler unless you all have a better reccomendation.
Thanks
You know I wonder about that with the Instyler (if I will have issues, if it will stop working). So far it is still working great. I'm not having any problems, of course I figured I have 2 of them, but I gave my second one to a family member that I thought would like it. Right now it's working fine and there aren't any problems with it, but sometimes I'm still thinking is this too good to be true.

When you get yours and try it will you let me know how you like it. I will not be in a position to buy one until the end of the month and I am researching now. I noticed people said not to put product on your hair, but they sell product. So are their products for after you do your hair? Any other suggestions than the InStyler. I also want to try wearing my hair natural but unless I shower, get it wet, then let it air dry after putting something to keep the shine like oil sheen and gel to keep it from getting frizzy it dries with mostly frizz instead of curls. I have some curls but they are overshadowed with frizz. Wearing it wet in the winter is not an option.

I use the Sabino now, and I'm still using the Nexxus Memory Sleek, but that is all I use after I wash and condition.

so this really works? is it actually worth the 150.00? My mom and I are looking into getting this. We're thinking about trying the two week trial for 14.00. I really hope it works. My straightening iron is good, but I'm sick of the lack of volume in my hair. I have naturally wavy, very thick hair, and i could wear it naturally if it wasn't for all of the frizz. My mom on the other hand has ver straight lifeless hair. Has anyone tried it with these hair types?
nope it works! to bad... i have such thick hair i cant do it all and i have a toddler and i cant find my clips lol!

eta it took 1 week to get to me!
After looking through the messages, I have to revise my hair type and say it is 3c and maybe some 3b it gets very dry as well. My hair will stay straight except for frizz until it gets wet. Humidity will make it frizz though. I wear it curly in the summer but I have to put a lot on it to make it stay curly when it dries. It is not hard to comb just very tangly. Never lasts two days even if I put a silk cap on to sleep in. Gets dry when curly too. Have deep conditioned it and that only seems to last the day I do it.

Do you ladies who use it have pictures of your hair? I'm curious to see how this thing works...it intrigues me.

First pic is with flat iron (FHI) it's a good iron, but once I styled my hair with the Instyler, the flat iron collects dust, I don't need it. The last two pics are with the Instyler and of course you can see I need a touch up on my color, but I can get over that with the shine and healthy look of my hair.

Just curious, but have you tried using your Instyler on air-dryed (or hooded dryer 'dried') hair? I would love to forgo blowdrying, if possible.

**Thank you so much for the compliment. I'm really trying to do better with my hair and I've learned alot on the website with the information sharing.

You know, I have been tempted to go form airdrying to Instyler, but I know my hair and I just don't think my hair will do exactly right if I don't blow dry it first...but I can honestly say that I haven't tried.
