MAX 2 - Way Rotating Iron 1 1/4"

Pink

Item #: 2278400

Options

With 360% more straightening power, the MAX 2 - Way Rotating Iron is preferred over flat irons for straightening and controlling frizz, while adding volume and shine. The innovative 2 - way rotation technology allows the barrel to rotate in the natural direction of hair without ever having to change hands or position. This maximizes the smoothing and polishing action of the rotating barrel.

The heated rotating barrel and floating plate straighten without creasing or crushing hair, effortlessly creating an amazing blowout look full of volume. The tourmaline ceramic barrel evenly distributes heat to help protect from damage while the ionic bristles reduce frizz and polish hair for vibrant shine. The MAX 2 - Way Rotating Iron delivers maximum straightening results, while offering the ultimate styling versatility to create body, loose curls, and beachy waves.

Key Features:
  • Heated Rotating Barrel
  • 2 - Way Rotation
  • Tourmaline Ceramic Floating Plate
  • 4 Heat Settings up to 425F
  • Ionic Bristles
  • Automatic Shut Off
  • Professional Swivel Cord
  • Accessories Included: Thermal Guard, Heat Mat, Removable Cool Tip

MAX's innovative 2 - way rotation technology lets you easily control the direction of the rotating barrel without ever switching hands. To change the barrel rotation direction, simply "double click" by closing the barrel to the bristles twice quickly. With the barrel rotating right and left you can style hair away from your face or toward your face.

To straighten, close MAX around a section of hair and glide slowly from root to ends. MAX will perfectly smooth and polish hair for a straight and sleek style without crushing or creasing the hair.

To give hair an extra lift at the roots, close MAX around a section of hair at the scalp and let the barrel rotate from root to tips for 3 to 5 seconds before gliding down through to the ends of your hair. For added volume, rotate the barrel in the opposite direction from tip to root to create a backcombing effect.

For soft curls and beachy waves, wrap a section of hair around the barrel from root to ends and close MAX around the hair section and let the rotating barrel do all the work. Make sure to hold MAX in place while closed around the hair section and do not pull through the hair. Let the barrel rotate for 3 to 5 seconds before opening the barrel and letting the curl drop.

    I have the first one that came out. This one has a smaller barrel and is a little easier to work with. Does an excellent job of straightening hair

        I used to have the wet to dry version until it recently broke after many years of use. In the store the consultant talked me into this version and while I do like it, i have very long hair and wrap it around the barrel to curl, it does occasionally snag in the rotation where it never had done that in the wet to dry version. I bought that years ago so maybe they just updated it. Either way I still love the end result and will continue to use it

        Comments about InStyler MAX 2-Way Rotating Iron 1-1/4":

        FINALLY! My hair has volume! I have the thinnest, flattest, limpest hair on the planet. Curling irons don't work for me. The curl falls out shortly after and the volume doesn't last, and straighteners just make my hair flat. I ran straight to the bathroom to try this out when I got it home. It takes a little getting used to and my hair did snag a bit at first, but once I got the hang of it, it was smooth sailing. It's been about 10 hours since I styled my hair and it's still huge! I can't say enough good things about my instyler!

        Didn't work for me

        Comments about InStyler MAX 2-Way Rotating Iron 1-1/4":

        I bought this tool with hopes that it could replace my ceramic flat iron that started losing its heat after 3 years. The only problem is that the tool does not get hot enough for my thick, coarse, curly hair. I need at least 420 degrees and I believe the hottest the InStyler reached was 350. I'm sure it would work great for other ladies who have fine to medium hair. It just didn't work for me.

        Comments about InStyler MAX 2-Way Rotating Iron 1-1/4":

        This is gentler on my wavy, frizzy, thick yet fine hair than a flat iron. Leaves my hair feeling softer. Straightens at least as well as a flat iron. The only negatives is it takes longer to style than a flat iron, and it doesn't do as good a job of taming the short "baby" hairs that pop up, especially near the hairline.

              This product works great! I have lots of hair but it is very fine. I have a bob haircut and I have a lot of trouble getting it to lay right. Now I just blow dry my hair and then use the Instyler to style my hair and get it to lay the way I want. It makes my hair shiny and full and it is very quick and easy to use. Best hair tool I have bought in a long time. Well worth the money!
