Ok so i went ahead and bought the instyler they had them on sale at macys for 89.99. Below are pics i took of the progress. My roots are very course since i am growing out my relaxer. I'm on the fence with this product it did as good of a job as my 20 dollar flat iron. I will say that it does leave the hair shiney and bouncy. If i had more managable hair i would definately love it. I dont know depending on hair type and texture this could be your best friend. I'm happy with the results.
