MAX WET TO DRY 2 - Way Rotating Iron 1 1/4"

Item #: 2267828 Size: 1 - 1.25 in

Skip the blow drying and get that amazing blowout look quickly and easily. Unlike other wet to dry irons that trap wet hair between two hot plates and boil the water in your hair, MAX WET TO DRY dries by whisking water out of the hair and safely venting it away. With 360% more straightening power, 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.

MAX WET TO DRY's rotating barrel and floating plate straighten as they dry 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 WET TO DRY 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

Towel dry your hair to absorb as much moisture as possible. Set the MAX WET TO DRY 2-Way Rotating Iron to rotate in the natural direction of your hair by double clicking the barrel to change rotation directions. When styling from wet hair to dry hair with MAX WET TO DRY, always begin by doing one pass to dry hair before styling. MAX WET TO DRY can also be used on dry hair by skipping the first pass for drying.

To straighten, close MAX WET TO DRY around a section of hair and glide slowly from root to ends. MAX WET TO DRY 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 WET TO DRY 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 WET TO DRY around the hair section and let the rotating barrel do all the work. Make sure to hold MAX WET TO DRY 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 bought this Wet 2 Dry ironer a month ago am not happy with the purchase.
      Yes, if I use it on damp hair it does get dry and somewhat straight,
      but still not really.
      My hair is not that shiny and sleek straight after using it, it looks like I tried blow drying my hair and it somehow worked a little.

      Unfortunately, since I used it 2 times I can't return it.

      My hair is long, wavy, and light.

        I actually love the tool and it works great on my hair, but I've only had it since Christmas (it was a gift) and the bristles are breaking off and yesterday both sides of the bristles (the blue pieces), just came off. I was able to put it back together but now it struggles to get thru my hair. For the money that was spent on this I would expect it to last much longer than 5 months. I'm really torn on whether to buy another one or just find something else.

          I love this thing! It does a great job smoothing my hair and setting the style. One style lasts 2 days and no giant hair on humid days.

          I wanted to love this product more than anything! It combines everything into one step which is so nice when you're low on time and don't want a million hair products sitting around. Its light so it isn't hard to hold for the time it takes to do your hair. That being said, if you have thick/frizzy hair- it may not be for you. It just doesn't heat like irons and so it doesn't tame frizz the same way. If your hair is pretty easy and not frizzy though it would be perfect and would make the time it takes to do your hair so much nicer. I wouldn't recommend it for frizzy hair but anyone else- try it!

            I had been saving up to purchase and it was well worth the money I spent. It was a birthday gift to myself.

              Difficult to use. And time consuming. I do not have the patience to try to get a product to work. It either does what it is supposed to, or it doesn't. I returned it to the store.

              My hair has never been straighter!

              By Leilani

              from San Diego, CA

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

              I'm Hawaiian, so my hair is very curly, extremely thick and immediately curls or frizzes. I've learned that when my hair is straight, it's down to my butt - something I wouldn't have known without the instyler max! With a regular straightener, it takes no less than 2 hours.

              With the instyler max, I was able to shower, do my hair, make-up and get dressed in a little over an hour - and showering takes the longest because of how long my hair is!

              I was actually surprised at how straight it got my hair. There are 4 settings of heat, so if you just need a touch up, you don't have to fire it up all the way. And it heats in about a minute, if not less.

              I tried straightening from wet, and my Hawaiian hair laughed at me and told me to go dry my hair first. I accidentally touched it to my ear, but didn't burn myself - I was very surprised. It was very easy to use - just have to remember that when you change the angle on your wrist, click the instyler twice and it'll change directions. I've had many people try to straighten my hair. I've tried multiple times to try to straighten my hair, and it never works.

              With the instyler, today was the first time I've left my house with straight hair where I've been confident that my hair isn't going to frizz instantly. The reactions from my coworkers and boss were amazing!!! I want to buy it for all the people with curly hair I know!
