When I actually feel like straightening my hair, the instyler works great. I am usually far too lazy to use it, though.

I’ve seen two of my girlfriends use it and they made it look so easy and their hair came out perfectly curled!  I want one now!

@blingybride: Your Chi can curl too.

I’ve used both and they don’t compare. On top of that the instyler gave me crazy static! Frizzy hair plus static is not a good look…BUT I have crazy hair :/

@blingybride: Do you have a square one or round? If its round try watching Youtube videos on how to do it. There is a 15 year old that makes it sooo simple LOL. I couldn’t do it at first either but she taught me!

@blingybride:  I tried one and it just made my hair stick straight out from the static lol.  I have also had a Chi, with which, I burned my hair :).  I would go buy a large round brush that is made of ceramic so it heats evenly and just use the blow dryer.  I have curly hair and have just given up on straightening it, it’s too damaging because mine takes forever.

I got one as a polyana gift once,  honestly I prefer my $20 curling iron for straightening and curling…

@blingybride: It takes a few practice run but once you get the hang of the tension you require, I think it works like a charm.

I have very coarse, thick, curly hair that I usually only barrell curl. I have never liked any straightener because of the damage it does to my hair and the dents (ohhh the dents) that they leave, but the InStyler works great and seems to be far, far less damaging.

My mom and sisters use it. They have similar hair traits, and all of them rave about it. It gives you that bounce without making it lay flat like with an iron.

@MyFavouriteChords:  good point! I forgot to mention I have a $20 conair curling iron that works wonders if I want to curl.

I actually purchased the InStyler and took it back after using it twice. It smelled very funny and if you didn’t do you hair in VERY small sections it would get knotted in the base of the barrel (ouch!). And it’s so loud!
