InStyler Rotating Iron Review and Giveaway

December 1, 2014 by Ronda

I received three InStyler tools and I was excited to try them, because I saw them on TV and wondered if they actually worked for my hair type. My hair is naturally curly, but I don't have silky curls, I have coarse curls, so it's usually a battle trying to straighten my hair bone straight without using a hair relaxer. I won't say "never again", but after officially going natural in early 2013 I have no intention of ruining my progress with more chemicals.

Heat gets a bad rap, but as long as I prep my hair properly, I have no problems. Also, since I add clip-in extensions to my hair, I get an opportunity to see how well this product works with my hair and weave.

InStyler Rotating Iron
I'm not one of the people who can use a blow dryer and the hair just sits flat. Even when I blow dry straight, from curls, my hair is straight but seems like a straight afro (see photos below). When I tried the rotating iron on my hair in its natural state, I heard a sizzling sound and my hair smelled as if it was burning. So I had to blow dry my hair first.


  • I blow dried it
  • Let it cool
  • Applied heat protection sprays
  • Started using the iron

In this order, the InStyler worked very well. I still had to use a separate brush in some areas to make sure my hair was smooth first, because it tangled a bit on the iron, but other than that my hair was straighter with this iron, than with the flat iron I usually use. What I also preferred about the rotating iron, is that I'm not frying my hair between two hot plates and it shines more. You can see the difference in the photos, right?


I re-took photos, going from curly to straight to show how well it works. This time, instead of blow drying first, I set it on the 2nd heating level. With this method, I would avoid hearing a crispy sound or smell hair burning. I used the heat protection cream and rotating iron. I'm wearing my hair curly, so I did not want to iron out my whole head, I just wanted to showcase the process. You can definitely see the difference between the first photo and the third.

In addition to the Rotating Iron, I received the TULIP Auto Curler and the Ionic Styler Pro. Since I am pleased with the results of the Rotating Iron, I don't have a need for the Ionic Styler Pro as of yet. Also, I don't have a need for the TULIP Auto Curler. I will be holding on to the Ionic Styler, but I'm in a sharing mood, so I'm hosting a giveaway for one of these fantastic products.
