      Comments about InStyler Max 1-1/4"" Iron:

      It smooths and curls my hair very nicely. I have short hair and so it works great for me. The downside is that even with short hair, it doesn't reduce the time it takes me to fix my hair if its wet. I still have to blow-dry my hair if I don't have time to wait.

            Hair gets wrapped around the finger grip attachment on the tip of the iron, and breaks your hair. I removed the tip and it worked better, but was harder to control.

                    Comments about InStyler Max 1-1/4"" Iron:

                    I am SO impressed with this product. I buy a lot of hair appliances because I have tight, coarse, frizzy curly hair and it takes a lot of time and work to make my hair look the way I want it to. I have tried many, many straighteners, volumizers, curling irons, etc to give my hair both the super straight look and smooth but with body look. Currently I use Frizz Ease serum, Garnier leave in conditioner and then a Conair hair dryer that comes with a comb attachment to get my hair dry & most of the curls out prior to straightening. After that I typically use my GHD gold straightener, which costs more than 2x the Instyler Max. It works pretty well at smoothing and straightening but is not good at giving any type of volume or body. It also takes a few passes to get my hair straight and all the kinks out of my hair. In the past I've used a CHI Turbo (which is better than the GHD, in my experience), The Perfecter (which is a piece of junk), the Remington Wet 2 Straight (flat hair, did not like the look or feel of my hair after using), and the MaxiGlide (pulled hair, didn't work well at defrizzing), as well as a lot of the drugstore brands (Conair, Revlon) and large barreled curling irons.

                    The Instyler Max blows ALL of them out of the water!! I did watch multiple YouTube videos on how to use this prior to purchasing. I honestly did not have high hopes for this and expected I'd be returning it. Instead, I found it easy to use - I pretty much use the same technique as when I use my GHD. I did put on the guard that came with the product because I was nervous about burning myself but had no trouble with that so I'll probably remove it. I went slowly through each section and over directed at the root to get volume. I curled the ends under and held the Instyler several seconds at the ends to make sure it would hold the curl. After doing all of my hair I fluffed it with my fingers and was so impressed with the look - it is soft, shiny, and there is so much volume and body!! It totally exceeded my expectations & was well worth the price!! I don't think I'm going to touch my GHD again after this.

                    I was happy I saved some $ with Ulta's 20% off coupon. This product came with a heat pad which I appreciate so I don't burn my counter but I do wish it came with a heat glove as well. Also, I cannot find anything in the instructions stating there is an automatic shut off, which I think every hot appliance should have. Other than those minor details, I absolutely love the Instyler!!

                    I had the original model of the InStyler, but when I saw there was a new and improved one, I had to try it! I'm so glad I did because this thing is awesome. It seems to work much faster and I love the feel of the new version. The 2-way rotation is also really cool and makes my hair extra shiny. I usually straighten my hair, and I love how the INStyler smooths my hair but I still have some volume. It is a very pretty, natural look and I get compliments whenever I use it!

                        So easy to use and my hair feels so soft!! Hands down my favorite tool for getting a variety of styles. Love the waves that I can make with it. They look so natural! Also a big fan of the volume and lift that it gives me at the root.
