I have recently been trying out the InStyler. The InStyler is a rotating hair iron that claims to straighten, curl, and add volume and shine.
The InStyler comes complete with a instructional DVD (Which i must admit i haven't actually watched myself as i prefer to just try a product out!), a comb, a heat shield and a protective pouch to keep the iron in or to place it on when its turned out so you dont burn your carpet!
It has three heat settings (low, medium and high) and as i have long, thick and unruly hair i used it on the highest setting. It heated up almost immediately and rotates on contact with the hair when the iron is closed. My only gripe is that because the iron rotates it is quite loud when in use. The brush bristles on the iron brush nicely through the hair and make it feel sleek and shiny afterwards. It literally only took a few minutes to straighten my hair with the InStyler from my hair having dried naturally and extremely wavy. I love that it has a 3m long cord as it stretches from my dressing table to my full length mirror which is always a bonus. Another plus point is the automatic shut off so if you leave it on by accident it will turn off after it hasnt been in use for 45 minutes. It is extremely easy to use, even for a hair novice like myself!
Before & After
As you can see, when my hair dries naturally after washing it is extremely wavy and the colour difference between my roots and the end of my hair is pretty obvious. After a few minutes of using the Instyler my hair feels and looks smoother and is straight.
As a product i love it and i am so happy that ive had the opportunity to give it a try as it wouldnt necessarily be a product i would have picked up myself as i have straighteners and curlers already. However it is a great multipurpose tool that would be fantastic for travelling. It leaves hair feeling smooth and shiny and is styled within minutes.
The InStyler retails for £99.99. If you think that we spend over £100 on GHDs to straighten our hair plus more money to turn it, why not splash out on a product that does both? Im stroking my hair now & it feels amazing!
You can find the InStyler on:
I am looking forward to seeing the other styles i can create with this iron!
