Comments about Instyler Rotating Iron- Wet 2 Dry:

Liked how my hair was shiny and smooth.

Didn't really save me time since I still had to pull out the flatiron to "fix" the areas where I had difficulties.

    Comments about Instyler Rotating Iron- Wet 2 Dry:

    After my Ulta hairstylist used the regular one on my hair, I was shocked. I was for sure it was going to get stuck in my hair & burn it to death. But I'm a believer! I purchased the Wet 2 Dry because I thought it would expedite my styling & yes it DOES. I've followed directions for damp hair & it works pretty impressively. Although I usually wait for my hair to air dry. While I appreciate the stick straight styling of my CHI, I definitely love the volume, curl & easy use the Instyler gives me. I use it all the time now, no damage to my hair (I use Redken Smooth heat protectant). Love it, not sure why there are so many bad reviews because it's awesome to me & I'm totally clumsy & all thumbs, lol.

    Comments about Instyler Rotating Iron- Wet 2 Dry:

    I really debated between this an another curling product to buy myself for my birthday. Because this one was on sale, I decided to give it a try even though I hadn't heard anything about it. I thought it could replace my curling iron, flat iron, blow dryer, and round brush! What could be better? Well, not quite. Your hair really needs to be almost completely dry already to use the wet to dry feature. Even then, it takes double the amount of time because you have to take every pass of a small amount of hair at least twice if not 3 times. Also, just a note, your hair is SUPER hot after one pass, so you have to wait for it to cool off before making another pass. And then you wonder, is it really ok for my hair to be getting soooo hot and then cooling repeatedly? My hair would burn my fingers if I touched it. It did finally work as a straightener, in place of my dryer and round brush. It was smooth and pretty, but lacked some of the volume at the roots that I usually get with the brush and dryer. I could never get it to curl even after watching how to youtube videos and trying it on my daughters hair as well as my own. I kept it and kept trying to love it for about 2 weeks. I just couldn't. The rotating barrel was super fun and cool! I wanted to love it. I am glad I tried it because I have always been curious. They look very intriguing with the rotating barrel and the infomercials make it look magical! But in the end, for the money it costs, it just couldn't do better than what I already had.

    Comments about Instyler Rotating Iron- Wet 2 Dry:

    Section hair. Go slowly, this is the most important step. Use small sections of hair. The fist time the instyler will dry your damp hair. The second time it will curl/straighten. Don't use my curling iron or blow dryer any more. It gets easier to use each time.

      I have very long and thick hair and it is hard for me to have straight hair because it friezes up. In under 25 mins. I can do my hair. That is a big step coming from 1hr. and 30min. minimum just blow drying. Two big thumbs up.

            Comments about Instyler Rotating Iron- Wet 2 Dry:

            First time using the Instyler, ended up taking it back. I have fine, thin curly hair. The Instyler made my hair very frizzy and doll, also very dry. I then tried it on damp hair, dried fast but was left with a frizzy mess.

                I liked this gadget. I used it on damp hair and it dried and straightened it at the same time. I'm not sure if I would use it to curl my hair. I did have to run it over my hair a few times for it to work. If I use my Chi, my hair has to be pretty much completely dry. This was so much quicker. I am buying my mother one for christmas. There are also some great videos on youtube with tips and such.

                      Used product twice with same results. Did not fully straighten my hair and caused a frizzy mess each time.
