Can You Use the Instyler on Wet Hair?

My daughter wants a new hair straightener (she's in college) but she wants to use it on wet hair. Will this one work? I haven't had much luck researching hair straighteners that work on wet hair, get good reviews and cost less than $200.

Thanks!

The instyler is to be used on dry hair only.

Think that would be too damaging for your hair.

Never heard of doing that. Why would you?

I have a flat iron that can be used on wet hair and that's how I use it all the time. It's called Wet 2 Straight, and there are more than 20 settings for all the way from thin totally dry hair to thick soaking wet hair. I let my hair air-dry a bit, and then I use this. I've been doing it for years, and I have a back-up in case the one I have gives out. My hair is in very good condition.

I'm tempted to try the InStyler, but the dry-hair-only aspect is what's holding me back. I was curious about this too, and assumed it's only for dry hair since they never have a demo with hair that's wet. {#emotions_dlg.sleep}

I also have the Remington wet 2 straight and it works great on wet hair. The synthetic bristles have been my deterrent for buying the in styler. The chi they recently showed was tempting, but I've noticed my hairstylist always blow dries my hair prior to using her Chi iron and advised against using it on wet hair. If chi did an iron for damp hair or markets it for that I'd probably splurge for a higher end flat iron, but till then I'll use my wet to straight since I just don't have the time to blow dry first. I think I bought mine at Walmart.

Thanks, gradstudentMom. I couldn't remember the brand name. I also wanted to add that it's pretty inexpensive. I got mine at Bed Bath & Beyond. I've had it for years and it still works great. I haven't had to use my extra one yet! {#emotions_dlg.sleep}

Nope -- at least I can't. If you use on wet hair it makes terrible bumps and ridges. Works great on blown dry hair.
