        Move over paul mitchell straightner, hello instyler.
        I bought my instyler 3 weeks ago and have used it almost every day since. It works great on frizzy hair. Final result is always smooth voluminous hair.

        I really like this product! It leaves my hair super soft, it's lightweight, and easy to use. I believe that it is worth the money so far. The only problem i have with this is that the cord is super short!!

        Works great to straighten my hair. Doesn't add the volume like it claims and doesn't work well to make pretty curls. Could be due to the type of hair I have.

          I am not someone who spends a great deal of time getting ready. But I always want to look good. I've struggled with my hair for years, especially getting the back to look remotely good. Cant see what I'm doing and frankly just not adept at the curling iron or curlers or brushes. This does the trick quickly and takes care of frizz and fly always. I have smooth, controlled hair and I'm delighted.

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

            I got this as a Christmas gift a couple years ago and was excited, but then I used it and it makes me hair extremely frizzy. I also couldn't get to the roots of my hair cause of the bulky barrel. I hated how it made my hair look straight, I had to use even more product to reduce the frizz, and the noise it makes is rather irritating. The only good thing was that the curls it made were pretty but nothing you can't do with a regular curling iron. I went back to a CHI as soon as I could.

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

                My hair takes forever to dry, even with a blow dryer. Blow drying, flat ironing, and styling it usually ends up taking a couple of hours. So I was really excited with the idea of being able to hop out of the shower and straighten my hair while it was wet, and with less damage! So I bought the Instyler and tried it right away! I was VERY disappointed. Not only does it not dry your hair, it doesn't straighten it! I have really thick curly hair, so I'm used to hair products/devices not working or taking longer than instructed, but the Instyler just didn't do anything at all.
                I applied my heat protectant spray, towel dried my hair, and started with a small section using the highest setting. I had to go over the section three times for the curl to straighten at all! All it did was make my damp hair less damp, and my curly hair less curly. It didn't dry or straighten at all. I messed with the annoying thing for about an hour thinking there was no way it could be this useless, I had to be doing something wrong. But after reading the directions front to back, I just realized it was one of those things that girls with thick hair can't use. One would think a product meant to STRAIGHTEN hair would be made so that the curly haired person would be able to use it. Maybe some of you straight/thin haired gals will have better luck, but I wouldn't waste your money.
                Happy Shopping. xx

                    LOVE it, I should of buy it long time ago. I don't use my flat iron or my curly iron any more, both were burning and damaging my hair so bad. With the InStyler is less time and I can take it everywhere. Also, it helps fight against humidity weather.

                        I really wanted to love this styling tool, especially because of the price, but I ended up returning it. This tool definitely takes practice to get the results you want. It's easy to burn yourself so be careful when you first use it! I was able to achieve curls but I found that I can do that with a regular curling iron. Also, I don't like the noise it makes when in use. This tool would probably be great for someone with wavy or curly hair that wants to use it as a straightner.

                            Bought the InStyler to give body, create waves and tame frizz and was disappointed to find it did none of these with my hair. It was difficult to maneuver especially at the back of my head and trying to keep it the right way round whilst looking in the mirror was not easy. I could not get any body at the crown or create any waves the best I could manage was making my hair a little smoother, it has been returned.
