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.
Better than GHD
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'm so glad I bit the bullet... GlamPalm irons are so smooth through my hair and leave it feeling much softer than my old ones. They give a very straight finish that doesn't crinkle up when I sleep and I only need to straighten my hair once a week now instead of every morning. Happy with my purchase.
These irons retail for up to $270 but I shopped around online and waited for Click Frenzy to get them for $245. Expensive but much cheaper than getting my hair fixed if it burned and dried with a cheaper product!
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.

Amazing glam palm
This straightener is the smoothest one I have ever owned! I looked at reviews for this product and thought I’d try it as I always originally used ghd’s - glam palm are amazing and I’d never go back to any other brand! Hair feels healthier as you adjust the temperature - amazing!!

Not really worth the price
The straightener stopped performing well after 1 year very minimal use. I did contact glampalm but they were not really very helpful. Even though I was within 24 month warranty the response they gave me was very discouraging and an attitude that they probably won’t do much.

Great product, easy to use & well priced
I’ve had the GP313 mid for only 3 days but so far appears to do exactly what’s promised. Heats up quickly. I have fine hair and like that I can control the temperature. Seems to straighten quickly but I tend to use it for beachy waves as opposed to dead straight. The mid size is perfect as it’s not too small (I don’t like tight curls) and not so large I can’t get any movement. Can’t say yet whether it’s better for your hair but am impressed so far and would recommend to others. The price point is also very reasonable. I’ve paid more previously and think the quality of this product is better. Happy with my purchase

Loved this straightener but I wish it lasted longer than 3 years!
I LOVED this hair straightener!!! however I was using it this morning and it started making a strange sound and had a burned out motor smell. I'm completely devastated but it was 3 years old so I'm not sure if that is the life span they have. I am looking at possibly buying the muk this time as my friend has had hers for 10 years now & I don't want to have to replace another glampalm in another 3 years. But I will miss this one for sure!!!

Very fast to heat up. Simple to use. It doesn’t seem to get as hot as my previous straightener but that’s not a bad thing because it does the job very well. I have fine hair so this model Orks fine and is sufficient
Almost 4 years Later!
I have been using this straightener for almost 4 years now, almost daily and it is still going strong. It heats quickly and my hair is still in good condition, even though it is coloured regularly. I have travelled with it a lot and used it all over the world.
Glam Palm Versus Chemothetapy !
I was in the process of purchasing my daughter a Glam Palm after she had brought your slim palm and the hairdryer for me as a gift.
I had been through Chemotherapy and my hair grew back white and curly and always had a kink in it. I loved both items especially the slim straightener as my hair is still very short and the slim glam is perfect for short hair. I decided to view the reviews that customers had written something I must admit I rarely do as I feel it is such an individual product and EVEYONE HAS A DIFFERENT OPINION!
I was so ...shocked to read some of the negative comments that some customers had written some I personally thought were a bit over the top. Personally I love my straightener and to date haven’t had any issues at all. It does exactly what it is supposed to do and I would RECOMMEND this product to anyone which I have done to numerous friends and family who decided to purchase a Glam product possibly about 60 or so people. These friends and family love their Glam and have commented to me how wonderful the product is. Having a husband who has been retailing for 49 years and is The National Manager of a very large international retail company I understand implicitly that things do go wrong. With the reviews I have read and the response from the company certainly shows what a gold class customer service department they run. Unfortunately you can’t please everyone and some customers seem to want to make it their mission to hurt a company by way of negative comments via social media. It is sad that we use social media now to try to ruin a companies reputation with such nasty negative comments.

Great so far
I've bought this and was a little skeptical about its claims but I've been using so far and it's been great. The straightner is light and heats up fairly quickly. My hair is fairly damaged but this seems to not make it worse when using. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars it's because it's only a week old and not sure how long this machine will last.
