Have you seen the InStyler?
Then I started seeing this item at my local Ulta. I still was not going to be lured into this magic wand for hair. Not for $99. No sir. Not me. No way in hell.
Then I got a coupon for 20% off one item. And.I.caved. When purchasing, I asked questions. "What do you know about this?" "Can I bring it back if I don't like it?" I left with my purchase, cautiously optimistic that I had found my dream appliance.
I used it once. Then I used it again. And again. People, I can tell you, I am in LOVE with this amazing piece of technology. Don't get me wrong, for straightening, I don't think I will ever give up my Chi. But for reducing frizz and adding bounce and waves and curls, this is the bomb. It does what my hairstylist can do with just a blowout. But I can't flip and twist and move my hairbrush and hairdryer like my hairstylist and I end up with something in between polished and unkept. Not a good look.
So, to prove my point, I am going to show you before and after pictures. Let me warn you ahead of time, the before pictures are.not.pretty. And if it wasn't so important for me to share my happiness about this magic wand, I wouldn't sacrifice my dignity or your vision to show these pictures. But it must be done. You have been warned.
Towel dried hair. You didn't really think I'd give you a full on view of my before picture, did you?
Hair blown dry. No round brush used. No make up. Hence the "marked out" face.
After the Instyler.
To be fair, I did roundbrush my hair some prior to using the InStyler. But I have also used the InStyler without round brushing first. The results are the same, it just takes a little longer because I have to go a little slower with the iron and sometimes have to go over my hair twice.
So there you have it. My uncompensated review of the InStyler. Now, if you have hair issues, go out and get yourself one of these things. You will not be disappointed.
