Straightens 4c curls
Detangle, dry, and apply favorite heat protectant. Directions state do not use oil while straightening! More on that later. InStyler leaves strands polished and straight with no crinkled ends! My 4c hair is highly porous, so I naturally had frizzing the next day. I applied oil to my hair after styling (my regular regimen) and used InStyler for a touch up the next morning, and the oil developed an unattractive smoky scent. Because of frizzing, I wore my hair pulled back in a headband, then set on rollers, then wore a French braid for the remainder of the week. My curls reverted to their 4c curl pattern after shampooing and conditioning. I plan to continue using the InStyler as part of my hair styling regimen.
I would purchase again!
I do not like the way it straightens my hair so I only use it to curl my hair. But it curls so amazingly!! Curls last all day and it is easy to use. I have the original Instyler and purchased this one only because my other is years old even though it still works perfectly and gets really hot! Great purchase for curls! And I have really long hair and it even works great even though it's geared towards shorter hair.
Great for long or medium length hair, not for short hair
This tool was easy to use, not at all awkward as it may seem. However, I have short fine hair, cut in a pixie-bob. This curler will easily and expert.y curl or especially straighten long hair, but for me it was really no different than a typical curling or flat iron. I wanted it for getting better curls but it doesn't wrap the hair around the barrel as it turns,which is what I thought it would do. The hair has to be manually wrapped around the barrel, so longer hair is required. I don't think they should advertise it as being great on short hair, it isn't.
