Recently I was lined with events that require me to look more polished than usual, and I was floundering on what hairstyles I want for each event. Without a huge budget for professional hairstyling services at salons, I usually turn to my curling tongs or flat iron to DIY my hair. But the curls usually don't form well - either too curly or too messy; and straights usually end up frizzy & damaged. Huge headache! How I wish I have a 2-in-1 styler that really works!!
Imagine my delight when GlamPalm extended their helping hand to me as they delivered GlamPalm GP501 right to my doorstep! (GlamPalm is a hair iron that can straighten AND curl hair! I heard a lot about them, they are like the Queen of Styling Irons in the market.)
|I had that same reaction when I unboxed my GP. Guess what? My hair is gonna look like that too, soon.|

Come share my excitement...
as I unbox this precious luxe-looking package!
|The point where I let out a little squeal of joy! Check out this stylish travel pouch!|
|May I also add that the hair clips are so convenient and holds just the right amount of hair, without pulling.|
|The styler's transparent cap is heat resistant! You can cap on without needing to wait for the iron to cool down.|
|Firm grip. The handle actually absorbs the sweat from my hands, so this prevents from slipping!|
I am pretty sure you're curious how my hair turns out after I use this GP501 right? It's my first use, hence I am starting with an everyday fuss-free straight hairstyle.
|2 days of unwashed hair! Limp hair at the crown + dry frizzy ends.|
|No pain, no mishaps! Straightener doesn't pull my hair. No accidental scalding.|
|Amazed this was done within 5 minutes! I was in disbelief that my 2-days unwashed hair can look so fresh!|
MY THOUGHTS ABOUT GLAMPALM GP501
From the first time I held the box in my hands, to unboxing it and to testing it out on my hair... I could not find anything negative to pick on (unlike some other expensive hair gadgets from other brands)! The packaging and travel pouch are so luxurious with its amazing high-end quality, I noticed I handle it with extra care so as not to damage it! The normal me is usually thoughtless and not mindful about taking care of stuff (you know how those arty-farty folks in the creative line are. Heh.)
The straightener itself further impressed me with its sturdiness and firm grip - it's a godsend to people with sweaty palms like myself.
This baby only takes less than 15 seconds to heat up. There is a huge temperature range to adjust from, plus with the Healing Stone technology, there is no sign of damage or any dryness with usage! My hair is porous after constant bleaching & colouring, I don't have time for regular treatments. Yet, GP 501 is able to produce the result of tresses that looked that they have just been pampered with a salon hair treatment. NO heat protectant needed, safe for daily use, as so claimed. Step aside, natural unruly hair!
The good thing about GP is, it is a multi-use product. It can straighten, add volume, waves and even curls! I look forward to creating different looks with this one styler!
Priced at SGD265, this is definitely a worthy investment every lady should consider.
