Does InStyler Really Work?

The InStyler Rotating Hair Iron claims to be the perfect tool for styling a woman’s hair. As seen on the TV infomercial with Kimberly Locke, InStyler is said to do a lot of things from straightening curly, ethnic, bulky, and thick hair, to giving the user curls, bumps, hair flips, and nice looking bangs, if so desired. The appliance is also advertised as being capable of straightening the hair roots. Users may also use the InStyler to create the appearance of body and volume. The InStyler claims to do a better job than most flat irons with a promise to giving the right results after only a few minutes of use.

I love this product, but here is a flaw….it’s very easy to burn yourself. I’ve used the product for 2 years, but once in a while I’ll hit my ear and get a nasty burn. If you are very careful, it does work great.

I took a chance on this and I am SO pleased!! It’s ez to use and takes a fraction of time to do my hair. I have poker straight hair with little body or volume but with the instyler what a difference!! To sum up my review, I would I would replace it immediately for me it’s a necessity for great looking hair!!

I love the Instyler! Older models break easiy. First one I got on line stopped turning on after 5 uses. Took a chance and got another one at Target. Works better than anything I have ever used before. I love all the compliment I get on my hair. I have naturally curly hair. I can go to bed with wet hair and wake up then next day, YIKES, not problem for the Instyler. Buy one, it’s worth it

I have thin and very fine hair. I used to use a flat iron to smooth and slightly curl my already straight hair. I like that I can use this for “extra” styling or just every day use. I use the low setting, and it works great. I use it every day, and it has been great as far as not damaging my hair with heat. My only complaint is that it only spins one way. It would be nice to have it switch directions. Luckily my hair is quite long, but I think it would be annoying and make a difference in the style if my hair was shorter.

Yes - Customer Service Stinks
5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars

I absolutely love the Instyler, however, their customer service is the worst I have experienced. The product has a tendancy to break, and if you don’t purchase a warranty they will not replace. I have had to replace 3 of them now and I’ve only been using it for 2 years. And when you try to replace them the customer service reps make you go around and around, and make all the excuses in the world on why they can’t replace it. I think someone else should make something similar to the Instlyer, but make sure it lasts longer, is made better and provide better customer service.

Yes - Perfect for people with lots of hair

I have super thick and long hair and even my hairdresser would take like two hours to do my hair. The Instyler is a breeze. I bought two and the one that I was using had worn down on the bristles so I just called the customer service line and they took care of it, I shiped it and they sent me a new one and rembursed my shiiping. I love the Instyler, it straightens and curls my hair so perfectly.

Yes - Love It

I have been using the Instyler for almost a year, and love it. My hair is thin and fine. I put some product on my hair when it is damp and let it air dry (doesn’t take long because it’s thin and fine). Then use the Instyler on low heat, and it gives it lift, body and SHINE.

My only recommendation would be to make the rotation direction changeable, as I have difficulty making both sides of my medium short hair come out the same.
