    Comments about Instyler 1-1/4 Inch Rotating Iron:

    As long as you use small sections of hair at a time to straighten/curl, and your hair is completely dry.. your hair should come out silky and smooth with out the use of any hair product...just like in the infomercial...I own THREE!!! I have one I use when Im in Europe, one for north America that I keep in my suitcase and one in my bathroom...this product 100% delivers!

      I love my Instyler!!! I put off buying it way to long. I recommend watching the video to use it correctly. It's does everything.straightens,curls,waves, and adds volume. All the women in my family now own one as well.

          I felt it didn't do anything for my hair and I gave it to my daughters to try and they did not like it either. They both have long minimally wavy hair. I have shoulder length. I returned it!

                My hair is color treated and long to to the middle of my back. My hair is frizz prone and it has a mind of it's own! My hair never looks the same from one day to the next, even if I style it the same way. I often straighten then curl...no matter what I am never really satisfied with the results.

                I bought this out of frustration and am glad I did!

                It takes a moment to get used to it, but once I did, I can't see using another styling tool! The videos on line really do help. I tend to pass the device over my hair 3 times for the best results.

                I have no issue with the barrel rotating only 1 direction.

                My hair is softer and frizz free because the barrel rotates and smoothes each strand. I can style in about 10 minutes, so it has also cut down the amount of time required to style. Another great product from Ulta! Give this one a try!

                  I currently use the Chi straightener. I bought the Instyler for curls because it looks easier than a curling iron. I tried to straighten my hair and used medium heat and slowly ran it down my hair. It's frizzier than I'd like and from my Chi. My ends seems fried and I've used it how I'm supposed to.
                  I will try it for curls and if that doesn't blow me away I will return the item. Here goes nothing.

                          I have thick kinky hair and they advertise that it works on all hair types. I washed my hair then blow dried it and then used the smaller barrel instyler. On the lowest setting, it burned my hair and made it extra "crisp". I kept trying and it keeps happening. It's very frustrating that I paid for this product when my flat iron does a much better job. I'm so disappointed.

                            This product is amazing. When I first read the comments I got a bit worried. Turns out, I was worried for nothing! When I towel dried my hair, thoroughly, the instyler actually dried my hair! I'm definitely going to be using this all the time. Plus I can get a huge chunk of hair --dry-- and do a sexy flip In 5 seconds. It's also a lot of fun! Especially since the barrel rotates, you just get lost in the rotation and when I use it, I act like I'm a hair wizard and the instyler is my magic wand. It just releases a lot of steam but it doesn't fry my hair, it actually makes it a lot less frizzy and really shiny.
