Yes, I know how cheesy this is. I normally would never admit to owning something I saw on an infomercial. But right up there with my new Cuisinart Griddler, I’m obsessed with the InStyler I got for Christmas.
To say I have impossible-to-manage curly hair is an understatement. I have been getting my hair professionally straightened since I was 13 and even some hairstylists have given up halfway through. But I’m away from my go-to stylist this week and desperately needed to have my hair done before New Year’s Eve. So yesterday I resolved to try doing it myself… with my new InStyler.
It’s definitely not as easy as they make it look on TV and it took me forever–like almost 2 hours–but the InStyler totally works. My kinky curly hair is now straight, even at the roots, which is always a challenge. It does take some maneuvering and I’m sure it helps if you’re already handy with a flat iron or curling iron, but once you get the hang of it the InStyler is a straightening machine. I’m convinced that if it can straighten my hair, it can straighten anyone’s hair–with a little patience and elbow grease, of course.
