The InStyler

So when I lived in New York, I was a slave to my flat iron.  It sucked.  Luckily now that I live in the dry, Califonia sunshine, I’m not quite the slave I used to be and I was really happy about it…until I discovered the InStyler.

My friend Sydne used her InStyler before we went out a few months back and when I heard the odd noise coming from her bathroom, I was like “uhh, what the hell is that?”  She told me about how it’s better than a flat iron because while it does straighten and de-frizz your hair, it doesn’t take out the volume and shine like most regular flat irons do.  The InStyler iron lies in its rotating heated polishing cylinder and basically gently glides over your hair, polishing, straightening, and styling each strand.  The second set of bristles puts the finishing touches, leaving you with shiny, silky locks…that still have plenty of body and volume.

The claim is that you can do your full style in 8 minutes…but I can now do it in 5, after a little practice.  The website also has several how-to videos in case you’re a little nervous or unsure when you first try it out.  Definitely obsessed.
