I've come to use the InStyler through my little sister...and I have to say I LOVE IT!!! My hair straightens much easier & evenly, plus I don't have to use the chaser method due to the bristle attachment. I can't lie, I'm ALWAYS skeptical of infomercials, but this one right here??? Hmmm I'm thinking of treating myself for the new year...Love my results everytime. Totally impressed!

Just wish it came in smaller size. Is it hard to handle?

I have had mine for about a year now. I don't use it that often just because I am lazy. I let my hair air dry every day and throw it in a bun. I use it on my daughter's THICK hair and it looks amazing. You can get on at Bed Bath and Beyond with a 20% off coupon and they will take it back opened and used. I asked before I bought mine.

I borrowed my Mom's Instyler and I have to say it does really work and my hair is crazy thick and curly but I'm nervous about heat damage I don't think I have had any yet (I've only used it 3 or 4 times) but the bristles scare me a bit. I do think its hard to get close to the roots. I have never used it on wet hair I always roller set first. I don't think it will hold up well in high humidity but my hair always puffs up no matter what so maybe other people have had better luck. HTH

I'm considering buying this and would like responses! My hair is 3a (as far as I can tell).

My hair is fairly thin and I color it with permanent dye. I like how my hair looks curly but I can never get 2nd day hair, so often I end up roller setting it so that it lasts several days without re-wetting.

I'm so afraid of hair damage that I've never used a flat iron. So my main question is what is the risk of damage with the instyler and what is the risk of burning myself since I'm not all that handy with tools?

I would really appreciate feedback!!!
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
