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.

    Instead of actually drying your hair it burns your hair and your hair gets Tangled in the new pin on the end so that you can actually do curls

    Did not reduce frizz, straighten or add shine. I was very disappointed and returned product after only two days. I kept the receipt and original packaging and had no difficulty returning the product. Ulta was great!

        I am not a fan of this instyler. It took twice as long to dour my hair. I did not like it's way of rotation. I had to change the way I held it on the way it was rotating it made it very difficult. I am hoping for better results with the instyler max.

          Bought it online at a slight discount but not cheap. Initially impressed with results but started to notice that it intermittently would not rotate. Now is consistently not rotating.. Do not know where to return or get repaired

            I bought this InStyler a week ago and have used it several times since. I really really love it! I had given my original InStyler to my daughter. Several things I like about it - like f.ex. the slightly smaller barrel, since my hair is only chin length. I also like the 4 different heat settings. I have been using it on the second setting, usually with a heat-protectant product beforehand and it does a great job of giving plenty of volume and shine to my somewhat damaged hair. Very happy I bought it!

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

            I got it specifically for curling my hair because my hair is naturally straight and limp and it added so much body and the curls came out beautifully. The only thing that went wrong was when I added the little heat proof knob at the top so I would have something to hold onto while curling and my very very long hair got snagged in it and twisted because the barrel was spinning but I was able to pull it off and haven't used that piece or had a problem since.

                Do not buy this product! It is cheap, tangles, and does not smooth your hair at all. The commercials must be heavily edited and enhanced. Stick to a round brush, hair dryer, and curling wand to get shiny, bouncy, smooth hair. Customer Service is NEVER open, you have to wait for 30-40 minutes to even get a response if you can ever get through. You cannot return this product without calling them. NEVER again. I feel truly scammed.
