InStyler, the creators of the ORIGINAL Rotating Iron, invented a wet-to-dry styler.

Since no one wants to spend hours blowdrying and flat ironing their hair. InStyler says NO BLOWDRYER NECESSARY. Is that true? Let’s find out.

  • Towel-dry your hair as much as possible. Your hair should be just damp to the touch but not dripping or wet.
  • Detangle, section, and smooth hair before styling.
  • Make sure the barrel is rotating away from the face, in the natural direction of the hair.
  • TO CHANGE  ROTATION: Close your InStyler twice quickly (double-click) to change the direction of the barrel.
  • Grab a 1-2" section of hair and spread it across the barrel evenly, with the barrel underneath the hair and the brush is on top. Make sure there are no loose strands hanging.
  • Start at the roots and rotate wrist slightly for volume at the roots.
  • Slowly move down hair, allowing 1-2 passes to dry.
  • Let the barrel rotate for a few seconds before gliding down the hair.
  • For flips at the end, rotate wrist once at the end of the hair and hold.
  • Towel-dry your hair as much as possible. Your hair should only be just damp to the touch but not dripping or wet.
  • Repeat the first few steps as in the above instructions.
  • Slowly move down hair, allowing 1-2 passes to dry.
  • Once hair is completely dry, reposition so that the tool is being held vertically.
  • Grab a 1-2" section of hair and wrap it around the barrel.
  • Close InStyler for 3-5 seconds. The longer you press, the more defined the curl will be.
  • Wrap hair in alternate directions as you move through each section of hair.
  • WARRANTY: All InStyler tools are covered against manufacturer defects for one year after the date of purchase from an authorized retailer

What do people say about the WET to DRY styler

  • The only positive feature is it gives lots of volume. My hands are cramped from holding it closed after a few small sections of hair.
  • My hair falls right through, and I have really thick hair. I use the styler to de-frizz and soft curl. The end of my hair crimps and frizzes with this new model
  • get great volume and style with no effort at all.
  • Is supposed to be ok for wet; however, hair needs to be almost dry or takes a long time
  • Small portions, patience, and practice
  • Leaves moisture at the root area takes as long to use a blow dryer and straightener.
  • Best for thinner hair or hair that dries quickly

In Conclusion

  • InStyler Wet to Dry is a little bit deceptive in wording.
    • First of all, because you must really towel dry so it should be called damp to dry styler.
    • Some people say they have had better results when they blowdry until the hair is only slightly damp.
    • Second,  you have to pass it through to dry your hair as a first step and then for styling, you must pass it through again for curls and styling.
  • Not exactly a one-step styler
  • NOT for international travel
  • Time-consuming
  • Best for fine/thin hair that dries quickly
