This thing is SO LOUD! It also pulls out random hair strands from the root as it spins. I bought 2 for 1 and ended up swapping each of them away. I'm glad I and some other MUAers got to try it out, but I only think this would be acceptable to use for short bangs. I always found a thick birds nest of hair on the floor after using this. If I were to use it frequently on my long hair, I would lose a lot of volume. Thumbs down.

This styler is utter crap. At least on my hair. I have hip length hair that is wavy and very prone to frizzing. This made my hair a birds nest.
It was so frizzy and hideous. My hair is healthy by the way. No colouring, no split ends, not heat damage (before i used this terrible thing).
Don't waste money on this crap. There a reason why its only 3.7/5. Because half of the good reviews ARE NOT HONEST reviews. I got sent an email, that they would send me this product if i did a GOOD review on it and tell everyone how magical this piece of shit is. I'm returning this back to the company tomorrow. DON'T BUY IT. SAVE UP AND BUY A GHD. THE GHD ECLIPSE IS COMING OUT SOON IN THE US. IT IS AMAZING. (i live in australia, i have one it is awesome).

I got this as a gift for Christmas last year. I loved the way it made my friend's hair look after using it, so I had to get my hands on one. I was really disappointed after using it. I have thick, long hair that has a small amount of wave to it. In pictures, my hair looked like I hadn't even styled or brushed my hair, it was a mess (after using the Instyler). The only way I can describe it is that it looked like I took a shower and let it air dry and that's it!! I looked like a bum!! I hadn't used it in a while so I took it out this week thinking maybe I'd give it another try. Nope, it made my hair look worse. Greasy and messy. I'm not sure if I'm just not using it right or it just sucks for me in general. It makes my friend's hair beautiful and she claims she has thick hair too. I'm so upset by it, why does it make her hair look lovely and mine so awful? It doesn't even really straighten my hair either, it looks like a big thick fro at the end. I really wanted this to work, because straighteners make my hair look too flat. On to find something new I guess.. :(

I've bought and used the Musta (for those old enough to remember), GHD, wet to dry straightener and goodness knows how many others. They all left my fine and frizzy hair looking like more like a frizz bomb than ever - if not soon after I used them, then a few hours after.
This is the first hair styling instrument I've used that's given me body and smoothness. I am not really after a super sleek straight look - I just want all the frizz to disappear! Really this has done the best job to date. I've been using it for about two months now, so too soon to say whether there will be any hair damage. The one good tip I picked up from this thread was not to use the highest heat setting, I always thought that lots of frizz needed intense heat, but that doesn't have to be the case. I use setting 2 and get exactly the look I am after.
Update: damaged my hair even on lowest setting. Down rating...

If you have fine and frizzy hair do not buy this. I bought it hoping it would be as good as people said in the commercial. It took me 2 HOURS to strighen my hair. At first i thought i was slow but i tried it more that once and it had the same time. but it does strighten fairly well. TWO HOURS ARE NOT WORTH IT. If it broke i wouldnt buy another one.

I totally love this styler..Before I got the Instyler, I had such a hard time styling my coarse hair..This has been a life-saver..people compliment me on my hair all the time after I style with it..I've no complaints! Plus it saves all my salon trips to get good hair!
People need to learn to use it right to get the best results..Do your hair in parts, by using clips..it's just a matter of practising the technique!

The InStyler is absolutely wonderful!
It's easy to use and much kinder to your hair than a regular straightener or curling iron. I love that it's so versatile so you can accomplish a load of different hairstyles with it.
My only issue with it is that the barrel only rotates in one direction so curls fall a little flat if the barrel is going against your hair and not with it.
But if you can work around that, it's perfect!
It does make a little noise but it's really no louder than a blowdryer.
I bought 2 for 1 and am SO happy! My sister owns the other and we never use other styling tools ever.

After seeing all the positive testimonials for this product I was excited to try it out - I received it today and hands down I can say it is the worst thing I have ver bought. Thank G*d I didn't buy the 2 for 1 option - I paid $90 plus postage and it doesn't work! The rolling bar only connects with the brush at the base - then it sits on an angle from the brush so when you clamp it around your hair there is no purchase - my hair just falls through - no matter how much hair I try and comb. What a complete dud. It's so badly made, it feels clunky - when I put more pressure on the handle it actually increases the angle of the rolling bar - increasing the gap between the brush. Big Fat Fail - I wanted to give it a big fat zero but the lowest I could score it was 1. What a shame

Since I got this almost two years ago.. I cannot go back to using a regular flat iron to straightening my hair - because alls they do is A) OVERHEAT B) DAMAGE my hair so bad and C) Make it awefully flat and too stick straight.... Eeeeek! What was I thinking all of those years?!?!
Soo glad I invested in this awesome tool. The only thing is I worry about the bristols not lasting as long as they should for 100 bucks. I honestly don't think it' worth 100. Maybe half the price - and they really need to figure out a better protector for the barrel, I have caught the side of my face with it a couple of times. Luckily it is set to the perfect temp. that it didn't leave any burn marks. Also, the loud noise if the rotating barrel is annoying and I find I can't use this when my toddler is napping in the other room.. It wakes him up. It's that loud. HOWEVER I really do value this styling tool- it really delivers for me. I USE product in my curly hair ... Crazy if you dont. You need product to tame fly aways, protect hair from heat damage, to make silky, soft, and sleek.. Maybe that is why it's not delivering results you should get because some of you said you didnt use product beforehand.... That's a no no to me.
Cuts my hair styling in time in half- I have long hair almost past the middle of my back - I put my product in then let my hair air dry. Then I go through it really quickly and get awesome volume, shiney sleek bouncy straight but not stick straight hair.

I have had this hair tool since it came out! I absolutely love it! It did take a few tries to get the PERFECT look but now that I have I am in heaven every time I use it! All my friends come over and we start playing around with each others hair with it and now I've got all my friends hooked! It really does work on every hair type and totally worth the money!!!!
