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.
Purchased in January 2017.

As good as a GHD, but Cloud 9 is better
Over the last 12 years I have owned the Silver Bullet, 3x GHDs and Cloud 9 Straighteners.
I currently use a Cloud 9 at home and was using the GHD when I travel, but the GHD had recently died. After some research I found the GlamPalm and decided to give it go. Also at the time of purchase the GlamPalm was $70 cheaper than the Cloud 9 and GHDs never lasted longer than 12 months.
I have medium length, very thick curly hair.
I love that it heats up very quickly. Has an extra long swivel cord. I've had no snagging with the nice smooth plates. ...
Straightens really well but feel like my hair is greasy
It straightens and curls really well, the temperature selection is a great feature. It warms up really fast, the cable is really long. I don’t know whether it’s just my hair but I never experienced my roots being so greasy after using a straightener before. I don’t use as often only due to that.
Works great for straightening and for curls!
Really fast heat up time. The glampalm glides through my hair really easily and love the results I get from it which last for days in between washes. Only downside is that it can pull some Gai out while straightening but I got that with other straighteners also so not a big deal. Love this straightener, is pricey but worth it for the results you get straightening and great with curls too.
The perfect GHD replacement
I used to be a GHD die hard... that was until my GHD died on me and I decided to try something a little different. Although it may not have the reputation behind it, this straightener is everything a girl (or guy) could want. Perfect curls, perfectly straight hair - the GlamPalm glides smoothly and easily across hair and doesn't seem to burn or damage it (but then again I always use a heat protectant). It's on the high end of the scale but in my books, a hair straightener is an investment - and this one is worthy of my money.
This is so much better than my cloud9
whole day sleek straight. just love the way it feels. don't need to use any protector for the heat anymore. finally back to healthy living. beautiful presentation as well. My cloud 9 failed to work after 1 month out if warranty. decided to go for GlamPalm after lots of research. love love love it!

I had very high hopes for this straightener after reading such good reviews. I have thick, wavy hair and this straightener just does not work on my hair. My old, $30 department store straightener does a better job than this. It straightens my hair to a degree, but it doesn't make it sleek or soft. It leaves it looking boofy and dry. It heats up very quickly which is about the only good thing I can comment on.
Do yourself a favour and buy a glampalm. This is the best hair straightener I have ever used or owned. I did a lot of research before buying one, and all I can say is I am so glad I did! I'll never look back now. The service & delivery from glampalm was outstanding and the performance of the straightener is absolutely incredible! So smooth and perfectly straight every time - even on dirty hair. LOVE IT.
Brilliant straighteners - very happy
I purchased the Glampalm Mid Straightener to use in my salon after being recommended them by another industry rep. I have been using ghd for years but with the Keratin Smoothing Treatment that I offer, I needed straighteners that had a heat adjustable setting so I could get the best possible results. I have been using them for just over a week and have noticed hair looks and feels much healthier, shinier and softer. They are quick hand easy to use, one to two passes through the hair is all it takes for a soft, smooth finish. I'm definitely happy with my purchase.
Very good - satisfied so far
I have used this for a month now, and probably used it about a dozen or more times. I have wispy curly (spirals and waves) hair that looks and feels thick and voluminous. It is easy to use - heats up very quickly and the slightly wider plates are good to straighten a bit more hair at one time, the plates glide through fairly smoothly. Having the wider plates does mean that it is a little more heavy to hold than I'm used to. Hair is soft to touch after straightening, not dry and straw-like which has happened with other straighteners I have used ...including Cloud Nine and Remington, using same temperature. I enjoy having the option to change the temperature as not everyone has the same hair type and will require some adjustment for the same results. I stuck with 180 degrees and that has worked well. For best results, i comb my hair with a wide tooth comb and section it off, straightening layer by layer. I then use a barrel brush to grip a section of hair pulling down slowly in tandem with the hair straightener above it gliding down. I used to own a GHD but after 4 years of using maybe 60 times, it died so I was unimpressed. My gym has Cloud Nine straighteners, however my hair is not as soft afterwards and the plates don't glide as smoothly. I did some research and checked out the reviews for GHD and Glampalm before purchasing. I was very concerned about purchasing a GHD after reading the number of negative reviews in the last couple of years, coupled with my own experience. I purchased the straightener from S & S Hair and the hair dresser there informed me that GHD manufacturing has changed to China now. I decided to take a chance on Glampalm and have been satisfied so far.

Best straightener I have ever owned!
I am so impressed with this straightener! My hair looks and feels amazing after I have used it! Highly recommend it! And it arrived just one day after I ordered it.
I have had the worst luck with GHD's - I think I have been through 3 and they have all just gone to crap.
Almost impossible to find a bad review of the GlamPalm series so definitely go for it!
I bought my first GHD in around 2004 and been a loyal fan ever since. Over the last 10 years I have broken a few from standing on them, but that was completely my fault.
When I went to buy a new one I read that GHD weren't what they use to be. I considered a cloud 9, but read that they had lots of problems with faults so that turned me off. I tried many in hairdressers and finally decided on a glampalm. I have had it for three months now and love it. As soon as I used it my hair felt softer and looked more shiny but I wanted to give it longer...

Fantastic Product and Exceptional Customer Service!
Wow! What a revolutionary product! I am a creature of habit and once I find something I like I tend to stick to it. I have used a certain popular brand of hair straightener for over 10 years and thought I would never stray from it for as long as I had hair to straighten. Over the years I have had my hair chemically straightened and always have my hair coloured and it's taken a toll on the quality of my hair and on top of that I was straightening my hair 2-3 times a week! My hair is naturally frizzy even after having it chemically straightened. ...I also have fine hair but a lot of it so it looks thick but feels fine when you touch it. So I was desperately trying to find a product that would help my hair instead of making the condition of my hair worse. I found GlamPalm on Facebook in my news feed about a year ago and since then have kept my eye on this brand and did a lot of research into the company and decided to give it a go. I am so completely sold on this product. From the first use I noticed a huge difference in the condition of my hair; it felt and looked so much healthier! It straightens, gets rid of frizz, my split ends look almost invisible to the naked eye (and that was after one use), it's smoother and it's shinier without me putting any finishing product in my hair. The product itself is beautiful in design and easy & comfortable to use. The hot plates glide smoothly over my hair and it doesn't catch the ends. Great customer service and fast delivery (ordered my straightener on a Friday afternoon expecting it to arrive on the following Tuesday; it arrived Monday morning!!!). It is totally worth every cent! I can't stop talking about it to my friends and family.

Questions & Answers
I have thick, wavy, rather coarse hair just below my shoulders. I'm very keen for a slightly wider plate to cut down time, however I also like doing loose waves/curls. I'd LOVE to try the 313 to see if I can achieve both with the slightly wider plates. However, if I purchased the 313 and struggled to get waves working, is there any way I could do a swap for a 201? I've only ever had thin plates and am excited about the possibility of having something in the middle. :)
I'm in confusion to choose whether GP 501 or GP 313 suit for me. I have long length (very thick) hair with frizz. It's pretty much straight hair but fluffy if I'm not straighten it. So it makes me often goes to the hair salon very often just to straighten it but not making it damp. Kindly please need advice which one suit me the best. Thank you ...
I would suggest the 313 just because it is wide enough to tackle thick hair but also small enough to be able to do more like curl hair and get really close to the scalp. But I have never used the 501 before.
