      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!

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

            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.

                                  Workmanship is terrible. I got this item as a gift and just started using it. It's falling apart letters are fading and the coating is coming off. I had silver flakes all over my hair, had to wash my hair all over to remove it. Extremely dangerous appliance, will leave metal flakes on your hair. I called customer service and they were not sympathetic to my situation, offered no help. Admitted that this was a workmanship and manufacture defect but were unwilling to help me solve this issue, or to even work it out. CS Told me "sorry but there is nothing we can do for you". I was so excited to use this item but now I'm highly disappointed with product quality and customer service. Will make sure to never advertize or rave about this item again.
