Is anyone considering InStyler Wet-to-Dry Rotating Hot Iron & Accessories?

Started 1349432109.65 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1349473294.95 by snowball

I use my regular one several times a week after I blow dry my hair. I am wondering if it is really different enough from the other one because it should could save me from the blow dryer?

Any thoughts? TIA

Yes, I'm going to purchase it; but, I don't know if it's better than the original because this will be my first one. The problem I'm having is choosing either the 1 1/4 or 3/4.

I just watched the video and he said that using it on damp hair locks in the moisture and gives the style better memory. I'm not sure how it saves time because you have to make 2 passes instead of one.

it looks interesting but i think i will wait to see some reviews.

i am also wondering about damage to your hair.

the 1 1/4 inch barrel would give a smaller curl and the 3/4 inch barrel gives more of a bend almost liking softly straightening out your hair i think.

Thanks, rebel. {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

Concerning damage...I was wondering the same thing using it when the hair is damp...especially when he said that if you use it on damp hair , you should use a heat protectant spray.

I have an Instyler now which I am happy with but I cant figure out how different this one is to allow for the wet to dry function. They look the same to me. Could they be the same but sold as wet to dry? They look the same to me

Notice he said on towel dry hair not dripping wet.

I will watch the next TS presentation to see if the address that.

If anyone has an instyler your thoughts?

He said this one has vents for the steam to go through...I don't know if the original has vents.

I don't think it would take the place of a blow dryer since you're not supposed to use it on really wet hair. You'd still have to blow dry a little or let your hair air dry for a while before using it. So, you wouldn't really be saving any time.

I agree. Think the smaller barrel will make smaller curls. Last edited on 10/5/2012

I haven't seen any presentations of this but I know Conair makes a wet/dry styling brush that sells for $40.00 and was voted as a must have top product recently in Allure Magazine.

I use mine every day, except on w/e if I am staying home.

I love it. Also, bought the small barrel. T h e n, I decided I wanted to keep another reg. one just in case mine died.

It took months b4 i had the courage (i know,sounds dumb) to try it. Now, i wouldn't be w/o it. My hair has no body. Use that then spray with some Ojon hair spray and style it and spray it to set.

Since the first pass is just to dry the hair, can you use this on completely dry hair? If your hair is dry, will it work like the original? I don't have the original but I'm afraid of the damage using this on wet hair.

Not sure if this will change anyone's mind who already has one and is considering this wet/dry one. I have always used my original In styler on damp hair...b/c it curls better and holds curl. Its the same concept as the little old ladies that get their hair set in rollers once a week. They roll them damp, stick them under a dryer and walah...they have curls. This model apparently has steam vents or something, but I dont' have any problem with my original on damp hair...just wanted to share.

At first, I thought the new instyler was interesting. But now I'm afraid of it causing damage to my hair, so I'm gonna pass.

I wouldn't even consider spending that much money on something like that. It's ridiculous!

Saws....I just watched a presentation and he said it can be use on dry hair, as well. The InStyler has always interested me, but I have never taken the plunge. I decided to go ahead and order this one today. I got the 1 1/4" barrel, since my hair is a little longer. Having trouble getting my hair to look nice lately. Hoping this will help. If I doesnt work for me, at least I know I can send it back.

I am looking at this tsv. I have really curly grey hair, I want the curl but not the firizz I get. so I am still not sure which size barrel to get. I have had curling irons and none of them to the job.

Thanks, I just ordered the same size in pink! I have very long, thick hair. I think trying to dry it all and curl it section by section will take too long. I will probably try to use thicker pieces to smooth and add some body to my hair.

I bought it. I have the original and it works with wet hair. My daughter has long hair and it takes forever to blow dry, then Instyle which is great, but hopefully this new one will cut some time.

I think they mentioned it has ceramic and tourmaline technology, I don't think the older one has this and thats another reason I bought this one. I may be wrong on the techno stuff though.

I've had the original Insyler for quite a few years now and love it. It has really helped control the fizziness in my hair. I also bought the smailler barrel Instyler and also like t it, but for my hair type and style use the larger barrel more frequently. I don't think I will buy a third one.

I really want to try this and am afraid to take the plunge. My hair is fine and shoulder length. Does this really do a great job? Not concerned so much with the drying aspect of it but would like something easy to use on my hair. Is this really as easy as it looks?

I think any styling product that is so hot you can see steam coming off your hair is extremely damaging, but since they are trying to sell it to you, they say it's "locking in moisture" which, I believe, is completely ridiculous; the steam would be moisture leaving your hair, not being "locked in."

My question is a little different. We know that any hair dryer or curling does some damage no matter what claims are made.

Yet I use one every time I do my hair - it's the only way I get a bit of body and tame the frizz. So..... I need to know- not will an Instyler do damage, but will it do more or less damage than a typical dryer and/or curling iron?

Any comparisons?
