Instyler is supposed to be the hottest hairstyling tool since the flat iron came out on the market. The big attraction is that it supposedly saves you time styling your hair by drying and styling it at the same time. I see that this company is trying to slam flat irons... their claim? It doesn't damage your hair because it uses less heat. You know this company should get an award for their extremely clever marketing tactics both online and off. The hype they've created is unbelievable!

What are Ladies Saying About the Instyler?
- It does work for volume at the roots.
- The one thing I am impressed with is the detail and quality videos that Instyler put out. They've got a whole series of tips and techniques specifically for different hair types. You can find them here right here on the tips page.
- It’s very expensive and most ladies only want one Instyler. They end up paying around $150 in total for two.
- It's very noisy and annoying as the barrel rotates.
- The tip of the barrel is very hot and it's easy to burn yourself on it.
- It doesn't really make your hair shiny.
- You need to upgrade to the hotter iron otherwise it won’t be hot enough to style your hair.
- It's bulky and takes you longer to style your hair than what the infomercial shows.
- The fact is if you don't use heat protecting spray while using a hair dryer, curling iron or flat iron, you're going to damage your hair. Several good hair stylists have told me time and time again that ceramic irons are best for your hair. In one of the Instyler videos on their site they are advising you not to use any hair product. Don't do it!
- There are tiny grooves between the tip and the [tags]instyler[/tags]barrel that catch strands of hair and breaks it while the barrel turns.
- Be aware of the costs just for the initial 30 day trial period. They include $14.99 for the trial plus the shipping. When you return it you again pay the shipping plus insurance to send it back. The total cost ends up being around $40 total.
- It's much easier and healthier for your hair to use a flat iron. Flat irons easily create a curl with a flick of your wrist.
- You also get shiny, frizz free hair with heat protecting spray [tags]beauty products[/tags] when using a flat iron. Why do we need the Instyler??
- It takes patience and time to learn how to use it. You have to use the proper combination of the right hair product and know- how for your hair type to get the results that you see in the infomercial.
WZZM 13 News did a really thorough video review of the Instyler.
How-To Videos - Styling Your Hair With Instyler
Instyler has many mixed reviews although it seems that there's a majority of ladies that don’t really care for it and would prefer to use their own personal straightening iron or hair curler. Be aware that it appears to me that there are people who are paid by the company to leave positive comments on the Instyler. Although I have no way to prove this and want to be impartial towards the product so I leave both comments for and against a product. Just remember the company is very clever with its marketing. Many times you don't know if reviews are real reviews or just company representatives promoting their product through fake comments.
