InStyler on Natural Hair

MzMillion writes:

This is a quick show of how straight the Instyler will make natural hair… it didn’t burn or damage my hair. As you can see, I show how to make your roots extra straight with the Instyler. I was very skeptical but this is the best flat iron I have ever used.

    I never would have thought of that! I have curly hair, and I looooove my instyler…. I used to have a cheap-o $20 straightener from Walmart (which works just as well), and I'd use it on my bangs and on my roots, because I can't quite get in there with the instyler without burning myself.

    i love my instyler! i have not got the chance to use it on my natural hair but it worked miracles on my roots before i went completely natural. it has 3 heat settings that you can adjust it too. i never had to use the high it worked really well on the medium. i am currently deployed and i did not bring it with me but i do plan on trying it out when i get back since my hair is finally long enough to straighten. i know i have heard about half good reviews and half bad reviews about this thing. but i love mine and i guess it all depends on your hair and how well you know how to use the iron.

  • Moniqua says:

    What kind of Instyler are you using? I've been looking to buy one of these but I don't know which one is junk or not.

  • HisBeauty says:

    The InStyler is the business!!! I love it. I airdry and use HE Long Term Relationship on my ends. Then spray on a heat protectant. The less product I use, the better it turns out. It's so much faster than having to sit at the salon, and I'm not mad at the wasted money if I wash it in the next few days because I miss my curls.

    thank you thank you

    You and your sister did a GREAT job! Your results look fabulous!

  • Noveechops says:

    I bought it when first came out a few years
    back and used it on my relaxed hair and it was fine. I haven't tried it on my natural hair yet because my hair is still in the TWA stage.

    Your hair came out very nice.

  • Kearea' says:

    wow the hair did come out just like in the infomercials. that steam really scared me though

  • Jeannette says:

    Great results! On those occasions that I flat-iron my hair, gotta admit…I'm a pro advocate of the FHI irons. Still like the results though.

    neat vid. thanks! My friend was looking at this last year. I;ll let her know about your review!

  • Mzmillion says:

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the compliments. Yes you can adjust the heat settings on it. It is loud so that is a drawback but I really liked it.

    As far as heat damage, no I don't have any, I only straighten my hair two or three times a year and I definitely go through proper steps to make sure I don't have any damage.

  • Mslanee1 says:

    Looks very nice and straight. I am always so scared of too much heat my hair never gets that straight, but I might just have to try this.

  • Happy 2b Nappy says:

    Love the video! One question – How do you get the edges (around your face) straight using the InStyler?

  • D Alexandra says:

    the amount of steam coming from the hair scares me. I'll definitely try it though. Can the heat be adjusted though?

  • SabaJ01 says:

    Your hair looks really pretty and straight. My friend bought one and tried it on her daughters fine and wavy hair, but didn't like it. I used it on my med fine, naturally curly hair and didn't like it either. It didnt get our hair straight as we wanted, we could smell the burn and it was also, too loud for me. I have a maxiglide and like it also. I also have a chi iron, which gets too hot. I dont like to use heat. I only get it straighten by my stylist when I get a trim…Only for my husband…

    I had one of those barrel shaped blow dryers with the bristles and really like the body it gives. It works really fast and curls at the same time. You will look like you have a head full of hair..

  • Ms.Fenty says:

    It actually doesn't get as hot as it seems, I've used it on low and medium and I can touch my hair immediately after (unlike my crappy flat iron), so it may be the product thats smoking/steaming. I haven't used it since I was 2 or 3 weeks post relaxer (almost six months now), and I always wondered how it would work on all natural hair…now I know

  • GASP Nail Art says:

    wow that thing looks like it gets hotter than wat i expected

  • Unknown says:

    tried it and let's say didn't like it took it back the very next day. have a maxi glide it's good but trying to stay away from the heat

  • FrouLaLa says:

    Can you adjust the temperature on this? I havent used heat in years, so when I saw this vid, I cringed when I heard the sizzling sound LOL. I think the sound might come from a combination of the rotating barrel and the wet product on top.

    I never imagined you could use this on natural hair. I always pictured it getting tangled. It does seem to serve its purpose. As LittleOne said, just be careful about heat damage.

  • kimmie0810 says:

    I have a Maxi-glide & I love it. I used my niece's when I was in CO to great results. I bought my own but haven't used it yet. My hair is still too short from my BC. But I love the steaming aspect of the Maxi.

    I saw the InStyler infomercial & was tempted, but I just don't like the idea of that brush or that metal roller plate.

  • LittleOne says:

    Thanks for the video MzMillion! Your hair really turned out beautiful….but I think you might be doing more damage than you realize. When you do the first pass (3:15), I can see that the bottom inch and a half or so of your hair is very thin. That's what heat damage looks like.
    You should do your hair however you like it, but it will be tough to get past shoulder length if you continue to use that much heat. Please don't take this as criticism, it is just my feedback.
