Instyler wet hair and preparation for all hair types

  • First your hair should be dry. Your hair should also be first detangled with a brush or comb and all sections should be combed for optimum results and brightness.
  • The hair section to be styled should not be wider than the InStyler barrel length. For any style you want to achieve, we recommend starting with 1 to 3 inch sections at a time.
  • Style your under layers of hair first. After under layers are completed, style your top layers.
  • With your InStyler, you can use any salon quality styling product, but we do not recommend using any oil - based products with your InStyler.
  • Before using your InStyler, you can use your favorite light styling spray on each hair section.
  • Go forward slowly. The most important lesson is to slowly glide the InStyler. Don't worry if you see "steam" coming out of your hair when using InStyler. This doesn't damage your hair, it just evaporates from the shaft of the hair.

How to section hair for use with the Instyler

It is important to know how to properly section the hair you want to style in order to achieve the style you want.

Clip your top layers of hair first with longer hair and start by cutting and styling your bottom layers of hair.

Do not use your fingers to collect a section of hair for best results. A much "cleaner" section can be collected with a sectioning comb.

Start with sections of 1 to 3 inches working on each side of the head to the neck nape.

Grab the InStyler firmly but not too tightly when styling hair. Let the hair glide. Let the InStyler work.

Questions frequently asked

Question: Compared to my flat iron, how do I use InStyler?

Answer: The technique is similar. Put your hair in the InStyler, close the product on your hair and slowly move your hair down. That's where the similarity ends. The heated rotating polishing barrel and bristles are doing most of the work for you. You'll also find that with your InStyler you can do much, much more than you could with your flat iron.

Question: When I use my InStyler, my hair comes out frizzy. What's wrong?

Answer: Go slowly. It helps to dry your hair as well as possible, comb and detangel it. Place the InStyler so that the barrel rotates with your hair direction. Also, remember to put as little tension on the barrel as possible. This will help to minimize frizz.

Question: It seems that my InStyler doesn't work on my hair. What's wrong?

Answer: When styling with your InStyler, it is very important to go slowly. You'll find that your styles are more likely to be achieved by working slowly and not pulling your InStyler quickly through your hair.

Question: Does the InStyler work on African American natural hair

Answer: Definitely. If your hair is combed and detangled first, you will get the best results. The InStyler is a great tool for Afro American hair because it doesn't leave crease marks such as flat iron, and the polishing barrel and bristles leave the hair shiny and beautiful. If properly used, the InStyler is safe for any type of hair.

Question: Should I first dry my hair before I use the InStyler?

Answer: Before using your InStyler, you should dry your hair completely. If you start with completely dried hair, the style will hold better and longer. Moist hair takes longer to style and does not hold both style and dry hair.

Question: Can I use my InStyler before or after using the styling product?

Answer: With your InStyler, you can use any salon quality product, although no oil-based products are recommended. Before you style, a professional thermal lotion can be applied to the hair, and any professional firm-up or styling spray can be applied before and after styling.

Question: The InStyler doesn't seem to work for me. Did I make a mistake?

Answer: If your ends are not styling, you can let the InStyler linger a little bit longer on the ends to hold the style. The ends of the hair are the driest part of the hair, and are a bit harder to style for some. It helps to use a good conditioner, especially on the ends to help infuse moisture. If you have split ends they will come out looking frizzy.

Question: I see smoke from my hair! Is my hair burning?

Answer: No, no, no! The InStyler doesn't burn your hair. What you see is the evaporating steam from your hair. This is only a conditioner or product built up and is completely safe and normal.

Question: Can I use my InStyler with real human hair extensions?

Answer: Yeah. Make sure you start with your InStyler below where your natural hair is attached. Do not pull the InStyler with any pressure, as if you are not careful, you can pull out your extensions. Never use any synthetic hair extensions with your InStyler.

Question: The InStyler can be used as a curling iron?

Answer: Definitely! You can make great curls just by wrapping your hair around the heated rotating polishing barrel and closing the InStyler!

Question: The heated barrel is rotating. Can my hair get entangled?

Answer: The rotating heated polishing barrel surface is completely smooth, so your hair is not tangled.
