MAX WET TO DRY 2 - Way Rotating Iron 1 1/4''

1 - 1.25 in Item 2267828

Skip the blow drying and get that amazing blowout look quickly and easily. Unlike other wet to dry irons that trap wet hair between two hot plates and boil the water in your hair, MAX WET TO DRY dries by whisking water out of the hair and safely venting it away. With 360% more straightening power, the innovative 2 - way rotation technology allows the barrel to rotate in the natural direction of hair without ever having to change hands or position. This maximizes the smoothing and polishing action of the rotating barrel.

MAX WET TO DRY's rotating barrel and floating plate straighten as they dry without creasing or crushing hair, effortlessly creating an amazing blowout look full of volume. The tourmaline ceramic barrel evenly distributes heat to help protect from damage while the ionic bristles reduce frizz and polish hair for vibrant shine. The MAX WET TO DRY 2 - Way Rotating Iron delivers maximum straightening results, while offering the ultimate styling versatility to create body, loose curls and beachy waves.

Key Features:
  • Heated Rotating Barrel
  • 2 - Way Rotation
  • Tourmaline Ceramic Floating Plate
  • 4 Heat Settings up to 425F
  • Ionic Bristles
  • Automatic Shut Off
  • Professional Swivel Cord
  • Accessories Included: Thermal Guard, Heat Mat, Removable Cool Tip

Towel dry your hair to absorb as much moisture as possible. Set the MAX WET TO DRY 2-Way Rotating Iron to rotate in the natural direction of your hair by double clicking the barrel to change rotation directions. When styling from wet hair to dry hair with MAX WET TO DRY, always begin by doing one pass to dry hair before styling. MAX WET TO DRY can also be used on dry hair by skipping the first pass for drying.

To straighten, close MAX WET TO DRY around a section of hair and glide slowly from root to ends. MAX WET TO DRY will perfectly smooth and polish hair for a straight and sleek style without crushing or creasing the hair.

To give hair an extra lift at the roots, close MAX WET TO DRY around a section of hair at the scalp and let the barrel rotate from root to tips for 3 to 5 seconds before gliding down through to the ends of your hair. For added volume, rotate the barrel in the opposite direction from tip to root to create a backcombing effect.

For soft curls and beachy waves, wrap a section of hair around the barrel from root to ends and close MAX WET TO DRY around the hair section and let the rotating barrel do all the work. Make sure to hold MAX WET TO DRY in place while closed around the hair section and do not pull through the hair. Let the barrel rotate for 3 to 5 seconds before opening the barrel and letting the curl drop.

    I bout this because I love my instyler. I travel quite a bit and was looking at a way to minimize my beauty routine. I tried it one and it started snagging my hair and ended up pulling it out. I took it back.

      Comments about InStyler MAX WET TO DRY 2 - Way Rotating Iron 1 1/4'':

      I have a disability with limits how long I can raise my arms...so I've not been able to do the blow outs my hairstyle requires. This instyler works great. I like the reverse feature so I can do both sides of my head without being a contortionist. However If your like the look of flat iron straighten hair... this won't do that. It does straighten and also curl. But also gives body (which you don't get with a flat iron). But since I like some body in my hair this is perfect. I suggest using it on almost dry hair, or spray your hair lightly with some water that's what I do.
      If you expect to dry wet hair with this.... be prepared do thin sections and take a lot of time

      Once you learn how to use it, it's pretty solid.

        Comments about InStyler MAX WET TO DRY 2 - Way Rotating Iron 1 1/4'':

        It took me a few times to learn how to use it, but once I did I was pretty impressed.

        PROS: It will dry damp hair, which cuts out the blow-drying step, it gives good shine and straightens my hair just as well as my CHI. It's also lightweight and gets hot enough to minimize excessive "going over" sections.

        CONS: The price. You can, however, find this for less $ at other places. I also still find it impossible to get the "amazing volume" they advertise and can't imagine how to use this as a curling iron. I just don't have the wrist action it must require, so it didn't deliver results for me there.

        Overall, a solid product that I'd recommend, but educate yourself before you drop the $. It's not recommended to dry soaking wet hair and work's best damp, partially air dried hair. It's also not easy to get the big curls and waves they advertise, unless you're a professional. It is, however, GREAT as a straightener and gives amazing shine to my keratin-treated, medium length hair.

            I have wavy hair that's prone to frizz. This product made my hair worse... it too three times as long to dry using this and whether I started with wet or dry hair I wound up with super frizzy hair. It was like it added frizz...

              So this made my hair more frizzy and my hair looked fried after using it one time. It did add volume but I didn't like it at all. I returned it.

                Love this product, I have the original instyler which is great but my hair has to be dry to use with the wet to dry I no longer blow my hair dry it does it all. I have long thick hair And wet to dry styler will straighten it out better then any thing I have ever used.

                  I just started a new job and I wanted my difficult to style hair to look nice with minimal effort. The in-styler wet to dry really delivered for me. I love drying and styling with the same device in two very simple steps. I get tons of compliments on my hair now.

                      Bought this styler in hopes of smoothed hair without flyaways. I have very fine thin straight hair and am not coordinated to use brush and blowdryer. While using for the first time I started to notice short broken hair landing on my lap. Then I noticed that my hair was being snagged by the fine texture lines of the barrel and caught in the base of the barrel where it rotates. I did like how fast it was to dry and style at the same time. I think the heat was a little too much because I was getting whiffs of burnt hair. I loved how it smoothed out my hair but the pile of hair in my lap was way too much! I'm sure this product works better for people with thicker hair who can afford to lose a few strands but it made my hair a mess. The following shampoo and normal styling revealed an uneven layered look to the front sides of my hair that will take 6 months to grow out and fix. If your hair is fine and thin like mine or if you have damaged hair that breaks easily I suggest skipping this hair tool.
