The Instyler Quick Review
Yep! I broke down and got the Instyler!
Many of you have probably seen the infomercials about the Instyler Rotating Hot Iron Hair Styler. I decided after much debate to get my hands on it during their $14.99 30-day Trial Offer. So if I didn't like it I wouldn't lose too much.
Well well well....after my look of the day today, many of you guys commented on my hair. So I decided to do a quick review of the device.
At first it was tricky to use. I had to figure out what angle to hold the iron and how slowly to pull it through my hair and how much hair to do at a time. I recommend watching the online videos at www.getinstyler.com before attacking your own hair.
How did I use it? I washed my hair and conditioned it and let it air dry. I did NOT add any products to my hair because the website says to use on CLEAN hair. I made sure my hair was 95% air dry before using the iron. I used the highest heat setting and let the iron heat up for about a minute. I sectioned my hair in 3 inch sections and worked from back to front.
Section by section, I detangled with my rat-tail comb through to the ends. I then used the rotating barrel to press and rub against my roots to get them straight. Then I clamped my hair between the barrel and the brush and slowly (SLOWLY) moved the iron through my hair down to the ends. I used the device with the barrel under the hair section and the brushes on top. Once my hair was between the two parts, I also slightly turned the iron so that the barrel was aiming up to get a nice curl. I did stay a little longer on the ends to make sure those were shiny and straight,
I didn't use any shining drops and hairspray and taaddaaa! It looks shiny and healthy and bouncy with no additional hair product. So far I am very happy and my TRIAL will become permanent!
