InStyler?

PJsMom,

First, your hair looks amazing...so shining and straight. I just received my Instyler in the mail yesterday, so I'll most like try using it this weekend when I wash 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.

I'm new here and was wondering if you would still recommend the instyler after a couple of uses. I have been going back and forth about it and found it on ebay for cheap. I really want to buy it but I am scared it won't work on my hair type.

Well, I know it's still working for me...the cost is a bit much. So if you've found it for a better price, I would say go for it.

Rip OFF , for stupid and dangerous design. I ordered on TV, they take %20 restocking fee if you for any reason you want to return.And wow $15.00 for S&H ! which you won't see even if it comes to you broken.The rolling iron rolls just in one direction ,good luck using it for both sides of your head. Iron is so hot with no protecting cover that basically burns your ear each time you try.

I'm talking about the instyler rolling iron.
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!

I've had mine for about a month and have used it numerous times when I want a straight do. I love my curls, but sometimes I just like to change things up a bit.

It's a bit strange, but if you practice with it and follow the directions you will find this product is well worth the price you pay for it. Besides you get two... you can't beat that! At first I considered selling my extra iron but afterward, and falling in love with it so much I said NO WAY! I'm keeping this puppy in case my other one breaks down.

It used to take me 2 hours to straighten my hair! With the InStyler I can get the straightening part done in 20 minutes. I can't even use the straight irons, those things didn't work for me at all. I had to use a curling iron to get my hair straightened because my hair is course (asian). My hair is extremely difficult!!

The results are so soft and healthy looking. My hair has some damage due to coloring and you cant even tell when using this product. I have a little trials to go through now with all these great products I'm hearing about on this website... I'm so excited!

Anyway, before this becomes a novel - I just here to say: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DEVICE! I'd marry it if I weren't already married. LOL!
3b B ii/iii
Poo/Condish: Wash w/Poo 1x p/w. Co-Wash 4-5x p/w. Whatever is on sale at the Salons!
Leave-in: JF/FE Curl Around, brush out/style.
Curly CURRENTLY: L'Oreal SL Curl Spray/CW Curl Creme/FX Curl Boost Gel/Water Cocktail.
Straight: FE Wind Down, InStyler FE Secret Weapon. Super soft lovely!

Lee Lee Lee, I saw you on another website with this exact same post. Word for word. Did you just cut and paste?? People here, including me, really love my Instyler and we figured out how to work it, so if you're with a competitor, then we figured you out. My instyler continues to be the best buy I ever made and my hair has never looked better!

I am not clever with styling tools, and I like the Instyler as well as hot rollers, which I have used on my hair for many years. After using Instyler or hot rollers, my hair looks good enough that i don't need to wash it for several days.

The Instyler is great!!! It takes me less time to straighten my hair than it does to get it to look good curly.
Any idea on how to get more height at the crown? I do the overdirecting but my hair is so fine, it does not work for me. Also, what products do you use in your hair? I have used it without anything, but my hair was so limp. I am now using BRHG knockoff and have a lot more volume.
I blowdry my hair first, then use the instyler. Start to finish about 12 minutes.
CurlyFireHorse
Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny

Unfortunately, the Instyler didn't work for me...so I returned it. However, I'm glad to hear that several ladies are experiencing success using the Instyler.

Anyway, I am really excited that most people have had great success with this hair iron. Finally something that works (at least for me). Most of the negative feedback I've seen has something to do with the company and not with the product itself.
OMG! This looks so great! I've been Youtubing InStyler reveiws all day and I really want to get it, and I've never really wanted to straighten my hair before! I'll still probably use it rarely, but I love how it doesnt burn the hair.
Hi, I'm new to the website, but I just wanted to post on this topic in case it might help someone who is deciding whether to use the Instyler (like I was).
First of all, let me say that my hair is extremely thick and curly and frizzy and hard to manage. I have tried a billion things to tame it and barely anything has. I'm pretty happy with my straightening iron when I do decide to straighten my hair, so when I saw the infomercial for the Instyler, I was very skeptical because nothing straightens my hair as well as a good old fashioned iron hiked up to the highest heat setting.
So anyway, after reading some comments on this site, I decided to take the plunge and get the Instyler from ebay. I must say that it worked very well on my hair. I like the fact that I only had to go through a section once or twice, and that due to the round barrel, I was able to curl my ends a bit (kind of hard with a regular straightener). The Instyler was pretty easy to use as well (but that could be due to the fact that I've been contending with irons for about 10 years now lol). All in all, I would recommend this for anyone thinking about trying it.
In closing, I just wanted to say thanks for the honest reviews on this site, and I hope this review helped someone who might be questioning getting this product like you guys helped me make my decision. See you around!
I LOVE my instyler. It gives me TONS of body and I feel like my hair looks professionally done after I use it.

Only thing that worried me, was when I started to use it I noticed my ends got REALLY dry and split ends were popping up ALL over the place, which didn't happen as much when I used my chi.

So I would recommend not using it everyday and making sure you have somehthing on the ends to protect them. ESPECIALLY if you're trying to grow your hair out like me. Its killing my progress
My very first post

I just saw the ad, and really considering it (trying Craigslist first)...my hair - I think - is 3a/b and is frizzy even when I cut it...so I'm hoping this works...in the meantime, I am trying to figure out a good hair routine to leave it curly without the frizz
I went together with my niece and we ordered the Instyler (one for each of us) right after Christmas. They were delivered to her (she lives about 3 hrs away) and because of horrendous winter weather and some surgery I had, I just this weekend got mine from her.

I used it this morning. Had beautiful results. I have been using a flat iron. Found the Instyler gave me more body. I used it just like I do my flat iron by sectioning off my hair; therefore, there really was no learning curve here for me. I found it easy to use and was very happy with the results.
