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

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 really wanted this tool to work. Not only did my hair snag on it with every run, it didn't curl my hair in the least. Not even bend it. My flat iron makes better waves than this thing. It's supposed to work on wet hair but I don't see how. I'd be afraid to try that. Definitely doesn't work on dry hair. Totally disappointed and returning it :(

        I Love this product, i'm just buying my 3rd one, my hair looks healthy, shiny and i don't get the split ends i used to.
        the only thing is the brush isn't build so strong and breaks every time

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

        Wet to Dry was my 3rd Instyler purchased. First Instyler still works, but doesn't rotate barrel direction so I bought 2nd one that rotates. (Couldn't use Cool Tip because it was pulling hair out.) Worked great for almost a year then bristles started falling out. Bought 3rd one and devided to try Wet to Dry. Works basically the same as others except you can use while hair is still damp. (Not wet, just damp.). And you have to do each strand twice. But the worse thing is no matter how small a strand you section off, some hairs will still wind their way around that cool tip and just keep winding until you have lost a small wad of hair. Next strand, same story. You can't simply stop rotation and unwind it before it gets pulled from scalp. You have to turn iff, wait for it cool off, then pull the cool tip off to get the tightly-wound wad of burning stinky frizz off of the post. If you push the post back in, the same thing will happen again. Even without the cool tip in, I still have 1-2 hairs wind around the crack at the end of the rotating barrel. My hair is thinning with age, and I can't afford to keep having it pulled out in wads! I saved one tightly wound ball of frizz to mail to Instyler, but can't find an address for Trade Box LLC. I also have burned scalp, forehead, ear and neck. The positive is that it polishes hair and makes it silky. You just have to be slow and super careful.

            Takes forever to dry and straighten hair. I spent 30 minutes and was still very damp. And it frizzes hair. Not a smooth styler at all. If I could find the receipt I'd return it asap!

              The Wet to Dry works just like the original Instylers I've bought, except that it claims to "whisk away the moisture." Basically, you just have to go over each strand twice; once to dry it and once to smooth and polish it. The only bad thing is that darned little cool tip. It's nice to hold on to, but no matter how little or how narrow a strand of hair you use, some hair will find its way between the cool tip and barrel, wrap itself around the cool tip post and pull like crazy. When the instyler is off, and you can pull the tip off without burning yourself, you will find a tightly wound wad of frizzed hair wrapped around the post. My hair is thinning with age, and I can't afford to keep getting wads pulled out! I'll just have to use it without the cool tip to hold on to. I bought this one as a replacement for my 2nd instyler which lost half it's bristles. (The 1st one I bought still works, but it doesn't have the 2-way rotation.) Also, if you touch your scalp with the barrel, it will literally fry your scalp, leaving a scar where no hair will grow. If you burn your neck, you will get a big blister. So proceed with caution.

                I use it to straighten my thick, shoulder length hair, and to flip the ends up or down.

                When I used this item my hair got into the end of the barrel and pulled my hair out. Also it was a little hard to use and burned my ear and very top of my forehead. When bringing the barrel down toward the end of my hair it would push the ends upward almost tangling my hair. I think it would work better for people with thicker hair. One positive thing I would say about this product is that it dries hair great. Sad it didn't work for me
