One Hand Straightening With The InStyler Rotating Flatiron
This is one seriously cool new styling tool. Although I’ll admit, the first time I saw the InStyler Rotating Flatiron, I thought it looked gimmicky and doubted that it would work. But then I tried it and now I’m a believer. This straightening tool looks like a flat iron and curling iron combined. And you can use it as either. I tried both and prefer it as a flatiron. But it is a great multi-tasking tool and can help you declutter your styling appliances – you can even use it to dry your hair!
The barrel on this tool is heated, as is a space between the bristles on the other side. You can use it on towel dry or dry hair – just be sure to comb out your hair first (a separate wide tooth comb is included). To straighten, you use it just like a traditional flat iron: section your hair, clamp down at the roots and pull the tool down to the tips. Clamping down pushes a button that activates the turning barrel and the brushes help keep your hair smooth.
I was worried that the the barrel turning backwards would cause tangles, but it pulled through my hair smoothly. I tried it on both dry and towel-dried hair with good results. I have slightly wavy hair to start, so I only needed one pass to get super straight results on dry hair. Damp hair took a few passes to get all the moisture out. I also tried the curling iron option with pretty good results – the only drawback being that you are limited to one size curls. You can also use the barrel shape to add volume at the roots – the most current way to wear straight hair (you don’t want it to look plastered against your head!). You can also place the barrel under hair to have the ends curl under or the barrel on top to flip the ends out. Pretty versatile!
A couple of other great features I’m digging: the iron has 3 heat settings for fine, medium and coarse hair. It also heats up super quick – a huge time saver for me. And it comes with a canvas bag for storage.
