GLAMPALM STANDARD MAGIC SERIES IRON {REVIEW}



Created by the manufacturer of one of the world’s biggest brands, Glampalm, is currently the most advanced flat iron on the market. That's what "they" say and having used one of those world's biggest brands I was curious to see what the Glampalm fuss was all about. 
I have to make it clear that my GHD hair straightener has been a most faithful hair companion for
 8 years and more and has never let me or my hair Down....it has however unintentionally burnt my fingers on occasion along with overheating my hair to a point of "too Hot to Handle".
It's this point that has been a cause for concern for several years now. 

If you read my blog or follow me on social media you will know that I do review and use some wonderful high end hair products including heat protectors in order to counteract any damage caused by continual use of my hair dryer and iron.

I had been considering for sometime buying a new hair straightening iron as technology with regards to irons must have improved greatly over the past 8 yrs. In all honesty the GHD would have been my go to brand, but I have read reviews about the Glampalm and what caught my eye was their promise of virtually NO DAMAGE thanks to a unique and patented secret in all their products called “Healing Stone” – This is the magical ingredient for unmatched performance. 
This had my attention and on further investigation this is how it works..
"Healing stone is a natural mineral found deep in the mountains of South Korea. Special ceramic plates are then infused in these minerals through a delicate process that takes weeks to complete. “Healing Stone” in the Glampalm plate enables the device to function optimally at 200 degrees instead of 230 degrees and is known to produce better and longer lasting results than competitor brands."
Could this be the end of my "too Hot to Handle" hair?

Then by magic I was approached by Glampalm earlier in the year to review their standard magic iron, but I had to delay until I came back from overseas in May and as promised my new 
"Glam" iron arrived in its glamorous packaging.

As you know I do thoroughly test every product I receive and this was no exception. 
Along with the iron you receive a Glampalm clutch, 2 sectioning hair clips and clear, protective stickers that fit over the ceramic plates if you have had keratin treatment.


Glampalm Standard Magic Series Iron


I received the Glampalm Standard Magic Series Iron, which is recommended
to straighten and curl short to medium hair, so this could prove to be a challenge for my long, fine and thick hair!
Being much narrower than my wide GHD I found it surprisingly easy to handle and was able to get exceptional smoothness and with that came a softness to my hair that I never experienced  previously. I was able to get more lift at the roots and I loved this new found "lift" and it certainly lasted longer than I anticipated.
Manoeuvrability around the head is made easy thanks to 3 metres of 360 degree Swivel and Pivot cord. 


Glampalm Temperature Control


The Glampalm heats up quicker than its competitors, but what I really love about this hair straightener is the temperature control feature, which allows you to set the temperature....and guess what..I have no more "Too Hot to Handle" hair
Success!

At no point did I feel like I was "frazzling" my hair and I for once had complete control over the straightening process whereas before I always felt that the iron and the excessive heat,
 controlled "Moi"

I never curl my hair, so I cannot comment on the curl ability of the Glampalm, but I am sure it's as good at curling as it is at straightening. 
Who knows though the curls could be coming soon.

Glampalm also features a unique Vibrate Mode that allows for better product penetration.

  The Glampalm has another nifty little safety feature called - Hibernation mode and automatically switches itself off after 30 minutes if not in use.Thankfully I have never accidentally left my hair straightener switched on, but I am sure this feature will appeal to many. 




I have to say that I am now a Glampalm convert and having initially thought I may have been better with the Wide Magic Iron Series, I love the standard width. 
Only time will tell about the promise of virtually no damage, but I have a feeling that Glampalm will deliver on this promise and on a final note 
my hair and Moi couldn't be any happier!



Glamplam is manufactured in South Korea, offers a two year full guarantee and free delivery within South Africa.
