  • On the customer-service side of things, some consumers report the InStyler infomercial -- which advertises a 30-day trial for only $14.99 -- conceals the fact you have to buy two InStylers at a time for $140 once the trial expires. Numerous users found they were billed the full amount before the 30-day trial ended and had to haggle with customer service for a refund. Lauren Keith, who tested the product for KFVS 12 media outlet with a friend, was able to avoid the extra charges: "I was vigilant in shipping the products back in the middle of that free trial period and calling several times to double check I would not be charged in full." We suggest purchasing the InStyler in a brick-and-mortar store with a reputable return policy and where you may limit your purchase to only one.

    Reporter Kim Setty asks three women to try the InStyler with a hairstylist. The stylist approves of the device, saying it does a great job of both straightening and curling.

  • Anchor Lauren Keith asks test subject Missy O'Kelly to describe her experience with the InStyler. The product works as advertised, she says, and O'Kelly is impressed by the volume it creates. However, both O'Kelly and Keith take issue with the $14.99 free trial (which can easily balloon to more than $140 if you don't send back your two InStylers promptly).

    This short review of the InStyler explains how it works and recommends it because it both straightens the hair and curls the ends, while leaving the roots full of volume. While the author actually tested the device, she does not compare it to other models.

    In this post on her website, Joi Ennis recaps her previous video review and demonstration of the InStyler. Overall, she likes the InStyler for her own hair, but says it probably wouldn't work well for people with very curly or kinky hair because you cannot reach close enough to the roots with the device to straighten it there. She also likes that her hair does not smell burnt after she uses the InStyler.

Does the “Instyler” take out hair nots or tangles?

Judge Richard E. Rico denied curling iron maker Tre Milano LLC's request for a preliminary injunction which, if granted, would have forced Amazon to remove all advertisements for the InStyler curling iron and all knockoffs from its marketplace site.
