Not satisfied at all
Worst hair straightener I have ever used
Burned and destroyed my hair
No really arraigning my hair
Only stays straight for a few min
I hate it
I wish if I can return it

5 years and still going strong
After owning several GHD models that failed miserably, I was gifted a GlamPalm by my boyfriend. Five years later and it is hands down the best present I’ve ever received! I have thick, long hair and nothing straightens like this. I have a full head of blonde foils and I contribute the health of my hair to the plate technology. I have never reviewed a product before but this is very well deserved. Get it you won’t regret it!

Complete waste of money
When my GHDs died after 17yrs, I was at a loss. My hairdresser recommended GlamPalm Mids and said the technology is way better than GHDs. The $245 price tag turned me off a bit but I bit the bullet in Nov 2019 and for the first few months, the GlamPalm irons were so smooth through my hair and left it feeling much softer than my old ones. They gave a very straight finish that didnt crinkle up when I slept and I only needed to straighten my hair once a week instead of every morning.
Then in May 2020, they sparked during use and just burnt out. S...

No longer have to worry about burning the house down.
I bought this straightener simply because it has a very fast auto off switch. I accidentally left my previous straightener on and almost burnt through the heat resistant pouch before I found it. A straightener that turns off in 30 seconds sounded perfect. (Most of the rest turned off after 30 minutes to 2 hours.)
HOWEVER after purchase I found that it also heats up almost instantly - fantastic, no waiting around - I can go straight from dryer to straightener.
AND it is beautifully smooth on my hair, I have had compliments when out shopping on how smooth and shiny my hair looks.
SO despite just buying it for a utilitarian purpose, it has delivered much more than I expected and I love it.

Glam palm air touch, effective, but could be better
Pros :This hair dryer is very powerful, fast, and quite effective, I love the design, I like the fact it has low, medium and high speed setting. It dries your hair super fast and feels somewhat lighter than traditional hair dryers (don't know how much it weights as website and booklet state separate weights)
Cons :What I don't like about this hair dryer and
Where I find it to be misleading is on the website it states '2 temperature settings'
Having had other hair dryers, I took this to mean medium and high temperature settings but the...y class the 'cool air' button as the second temperature setting, the first being the hottest. I hate the fact I have to blast my hair with very hot air, I bought this dryer because it's meant to be good for the health of your hair, I feel the temperature being too hot defeats the purpose of this.

Better than GHD!
Love love my GlamPalm. It's great for fine hair and you don't have to use any products. Leaves my hair silky smooth. Heats up fast and doesn't burn my hair. Easy to use and has a long cord. I always had GHD or Silver Bullet but highly recommend the GlamPalm for fine hair. Purchased through GlamPalm.

I've had this hair straightener for 5 years now and it is the best I've ever used! I have curly hair and straighten almost every day and it still works perfectly! Previously I had a cloud nine that broke after 1 years use and have used ghds but they don't compare with with glampalm. Hands down best hair straightener on the market!

I had GHD before but was not as happy as I am. I have this for 2years and still working like brand new. If I want to upgrade later I will go to the same brand again
You. Need. This. Straightener.
I did a LOT of research on straighteners for about 4 months before I purchased. My options were (based on other's personal opinion); Cloud Nine and Glam Palm. I had never heard about this brand before so I was a bit unsure. I posted the question on a Facebook page I follow and surprisingly only a few people mentioned this brand. I looked into it because it was (to me) an unheard of brand and I had a lot of mixed reviews on the GHD's from 2015 on. Similarly with Cloud Nine because they are the makers of GHD. My old GHD lasted 8 years but I wante...d to see what new technology there was on the market; surely there had to be in 8 years and boy, was there! The 10 temperature settings exceed any other straightener on the market, with most offering only 7. With 10 heat settings, you have the ability to protect your hair. I have long, very thick, naturally (brown) wavy (borderline curly) hair that has blonde foils. The GP straightens my hair with ONLY ONE STROKE! It takes me roughly 7mins to straighten all of my hair. It takes me longer to curl as I'm not good at it but the GP makes it easy! It heats up in seconds; you adjust the temp depending on your hair and what you're doing with it. The GlamPalm website has a helpful (damage-free) graph which shows you what setting to use based on how thick your hair is. In addition to the 10 heat settings, it also has a Clinic Mode; other brands only have 7 with no clinic mode. This was a factor for me and part of the reason I bought it. With this mode, you can have a treatment or leave-in conditioner in and STILL straighten your hair! I didn't believe this until I opened the box and there was a little rubber cover that goes over the plates of your GP and allows you to use it so the plates don't get covered / damaged in product. I couldn't find any other straightener on the market that allows you to do this. GHD and Cloud Nine don't have this ability. The Nano-Vibrating technology was also another reason I bought it. This means that the heat is radiated evenly INSIDE the hair due to the vibration. So it doesn't dry out your hair and you don't need to pile on the protective heat sprays / creams afterwards which just undo all the work you've just done with your straightener. There are many scholarly (academic) articles on nano-vibrating technology so that sealed the deal for me.

Doesn’t work - 2 month struggle to get fixed
I purchased my glampalm hair straightener through MyDeal.com.au
It was used twice and both times I noticed it starts off hot. Hair is hot to touch after going over it but within 5 minutes or so hair stops straightening as much and hair is not hot to touch. If you flick off at wall and back on it heaps up super hot again.
I reached out to my deal, their response time is so slowwwww. The informed me they don’t see the actual products, so the seller has to deal with it. Said seller tried to Blame my hair, how I was separating it etc. I informed t...
Amazing! I cannot live without it.
This glampalm heats up in within seconds and it also has a vibrating function to create even distribution of heat through your hair to avoid damage so it leaves your hair feeling so soft and adds shine. Since owning this straightener my hair appears healthier and has also started growing quicker. I will never go back to cloud nine or GHD again.
Throw away your every other straightener!!!
This is by far the best straightener I have ever used. Ive used all the big names and they all worked well for straightening but all caused damage. From the first go the glam palm clinic halved my styling time, left me beautifully soft straight hair and my style lasted until the next wash. Which it has never done. To top it off I straightened on only 160 with the vibration mode on. Ill never use anything else now. These straighteners are on another level. But them, they're worth every cent!
This has to be the best straightener on the market
I’m a qualified hairdresser & I’ve used a lot of straighteners & I have to say that the glampalm is the best of the best, it leaves the hair silky smooth and tops any straightener on the market

Absolutely LOVE it!!
I absolutely LOVE this hair straightener. I originally bought it to do curls because my hairdresser was doing this in my hair and I loved it.
Ordered my own and it arrived in a beautiful box with a stunning little bag to store it. I plugged it in, hit the heat on button and upped the temp and literally within a second of clicking the heat button it was BURNING hot. No standing there waiting for it to heat up, it literally is burning hot straight away. It’s especially awesome if you turn it off and unplug and then realise there was one tiny b...it of your hair that you need to fix, you can do it really quickly because of how fast it heats. I got the white one which has a pearl glitter shimmer to it and it’s stunning. It also has a vibration mode which my hairdresser recommended turning on because it helps heating the hair evenly and not damaging it. I highly recommend this product if you were thinking of purchasing and not sure because of the price, do it, you won’t regret it.
Do not buy!
I can’t understand the good reviews for this product, do not get fooled by them. This hair straightener burns your hair and causes static electricity which makes your hair unmanageable. My hair is now even breaking half way up the hair shaft. Do not get swayed by the good reviews, I believe most of these are paid reviews, so not true! The company does not respond to emails and will not offer a refund for their poor product. I will be taking the issue further with consumer affairs.

Glampalm - want some glam in your life - Well I hate to say I have found a better Hair Straightener!
As you know - I have given a very good review on another brand of straightener that I have owned for many many years.
However, as I am now older and my hair is becoming finer I decided to shop around for a straightener that I could adjust the temperature on and one that would not only make my hair look lovely but would protect my hair in the process.
This straightener has "healing stone technology" together with "nano-vibrating" technology to boot.
You can even put a heat treatment on and use this straightener on low temperature clinic mode to help that treatment penetrate the hair shafts.
Do yourself and your hair the best favour ever and spend the extra dollars and buy this amazing straightener - you will love it - I guarantee it!
Great Product, Easy to use
Love this straightener, i use product in my hair as well and the result is silky smooth hair with no damage. It heats up very quickly and has multiple settings. I can quickly use this on my hair and get a great result, no more standing for hours waiting for a result, this product creates them instantly.

Glides through hair effortlessly
Quick heat up is excellent. Easy to make curls and glides through hair with no effort at all but most importantly it straightens the hair well and keeps it that way for a few days. Not sure why I was hesitant to buy. Would definitely recommend.
