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.

Amazing glam palm

published

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!!

Purchased in January 2014 at Amazing Cosmetics for $400.00.

Very easy and fast! makes me look gorgeous

published

This is just perfect for me. I wanted to get an iron that I can make beautiful curls and straighten my hair. This was what I was exactly looking for. It heats up very fast and if you have not used a hair iron before, you will not have any difficulties using this. It is just that easy to make curls and make your hair look gorgeous!

Makes my hair silky soft and shiny. Love it!

published

I’ve used GHD Platinum before and it doesn’t hold a candle to Glam Palm. My hair is thick and long and the wide plates make ironing my hair super fast and easy. I also love that it makes my hair shiny and silky soft after straightening even if I don’t put heat protector on it.

It gave me an electric shock!

published

Bought this product for my mum and it gave her an electric shock. Tried to return it and they wouldn’t. They ‘fixed it’ instead. However when it returned it smelled of burned plastic and wires. The company were very unhelpful and did not take any responsibility for their poor quality product. Don’t buy!

Love it

Love the straightener. I've used the ghd and cloud 9 in the past and the glam palm seems to be smoother and less damaging. Also appreciate the two hairclips and carry case that comes as standard.


Better for long hair

published

Used to have a GHD but going to GlamPalm - well i wont go back. I have long thick hair which looks amazing when straightened and i have more time in the morning as it can get through big pieces of hair quite quick.

AMazing product

published

Heats up really quickly- 30 seconds.
Doesn't pull the hair at all.
Straightens the hair in one stroke without having to apply multiple strokes in the same section of hair.

Doesn't damage my hair!

published

I'm very happy with this straightener, it heats up quite fast, is easy to use for both straightening as well as curling, and doesn't snag on hair. In addition, I never use heat protector as it doesn't appear to damage my hair. In fact, my hair feels even smoother after using this!

Great straightener

published

Heats up fast and straightens well without snagging. I like the auto-off safety feature that's built in. Unfortunately it doesn't curl nearly as well as hoped, hence the 4 stars instead of 5.


Exceptional customer service

published

I've had my straightener for 10 months and have been extremely happy with it. Unfortunately it became faulty the other day and I had lost my receipt but the customer service couldn't have been better! They were very accommodating and had the problem fixed within one day. Very happy with the service, would definitely purchase from this company again.

Love this

published

This iron is great! Very affordable. Love that it has a wide blade. I am a hairdresser amd need something really durable and quick to heat up. This is the perfect straighter for me.


Best straightener by far and amazing customer service

published

Heats up super fast and is super fast to heat up. I had an issue with it out of warranty and Glam Palm fixed it regardless and was so friendly and efficient. I posted it on Tuesday had it back in excellent order on the Thursday! From a different state

I expected more :(

published

Fair results, easy to use, little slow to heat up, no snags. Unfortunately it doesn't beat my old ghd I was so so excited to get this product and I'm a little sad. I have super fried bleach blonde and it's results against the ghd were dramatically different.... the wide plates are good for a big curl

This thing is a game changer

published

My ends are no longer frazzled, stiff and crunchy after straightening thanks to this straightener. My old straightener was really ruining my hair. But this does an amazing job, I'm so happy I found it. I had no need to use a high temperature either, I recommend starting at the lowest and seeing how it goes. My hair honestly hasn't looked like glossy healthy hair since that one time 10 years ago when a number 1 hairdresser played some tricks on it. Beyond impressed. Used it after the alterna bamboo heat protectant and air drying

My go too over all the big brands

published

Nothing at all that's bad can be said about this straightener if anyone asked me what I would suggest it would be this in an instant.

The glam palm is an innovative creation from korea using a healing stone in its ceramic plates which soothe the hair .

Easy to clean, highly recommended for daily use on a lower temp setting .

received as a gift and nothing compares. Oh had mine two years or more no plate damage and cleaning is recommended weekly for health of plates and hair

Would love to try other products by glam palm


Beeps continously without heating up.

published

I love this product but very disappointed at how quickly it gave up. Have it for +- 4 years. Refuses to work now. Too expensive to last only 4 years.

Better than I expected

published

My cheapo hair straightener had died so I looked into purchasing a decent one. Didn't like the sound of ghd and cloud nine recent reviews so went with the gp501.

Tried it on the day I received it. I have long thick hair that kinks within seconds of tying it up. As it was tied up I wanted to see how long it would take to get the kink out.... A couple of minutes. And hair felt smooth and had that 'swishy' look to it.

Very happy I purchased this product.

Questions & Answers

RACHELLEasked

I’m tossing up between clinic or the wide plate, I have long thick hair. I normally use hair mask and do keratin treatment. Also can you use the wide plate to damp hair or does it have to be really blow dried?

Pippy Domasked

I have medium length thick hair with frizz. I had an original GHD for 9 years but now needs to be replaced. Im after a model that keeps the frizz out all day and takes 1-2 passes through the hair to straighten but wont fry the ends. What model do you recommend?

I'd recommend the GP 501, it has 11 heat settings so you can adjust the heat. This is the one I have and I love it. It doesn't fry the ends however I always use a heat protection product ( I use de Lorenzo thermal treatment and Argan oil) and regular hair cuts or trims. But I swear by GlamPalm hair straighteners. You will love it. As has been mentioned before section into 1.5 cms lots and start with the middle setting, if you find it too hot, turn it down or if you need turn it up, but only one temp setting at a time.

CDevineasked

Hi,
I have long straight hair but I regularly like to curl and wave my hair when I go out or straighten small sections if it gets lumpy. What model do you recommend for me?
Also, does the healing technology result in any oiliness?

Hi there,
We would recommend the GP501 is you like big curls or GP201 if you like tighter curls (ringlets).The Healing Stone Technology does not result in any oiliness but leaves the hair silky and smooth.
Kindest regards,
