GlamPalm Hair Straightener

Tuesday 16 February 2016

Oh my goodness, it's been a while, hasn't it! I've been away from the blogging game for ages due to study and work commitments back in Singapore, but I've decided to talk about my new favourite tech beauty gadget special to Asia.

GlamPalm is a South Korean export specialising in hair straighteners, which can also be used as hair curlers (there are numerous beauty tutorials on this!). The Singapore website offers 2 unique models of varying lengths and plate 'thickness' to cater to all hair types and lengths. I found this really considerate, because not all Asian girls have sleek hair on the thinner side. 

The most attractive feature of the GlamPalm straighteners has to be the Healing Stone Technology it uses. Essentially, this means that all the straighteners have a built-in heat control mechanism, so your hair doesn't burn and the damage is minimised even when you accidentally leave a lock of hair in between the plates for too long. Of course, I don't exactly advise trying it out for fun, but the technology is handy for us girls who don't use heat protection spray!

I've never been one to do much with my hair, but the weather back home is extremely humid and I've been experiencing a lot of trouble with taming my wild mane. Enter the GlamPalm 313, which I was recommended for my length and thickness of hair. I found it a bit tricky to use at first, being unaccustomed to such devices, but with shaky hands (and a lot of effort) I managed to craft some gentle waves in my otherwise frizzy hair! See below for yourself!

I do believe that with a bit of practice and experimentation, the GlamPalm would be a fabulous tool for everyday use. I've been wearing my hair in braids a lot this week, so might try factoring the GlamPalm into my early morning routine to create some soft curls!

I've also found out that GlamPalm is offering SGD$15 off (UP $289) when you use the code "Smitten15"! So hurry and grab one before this Chinese New Year period ends (and before the 313 model runs out, it's done so numerous times before)!

Special thanks to the Smitten Team for this generous sponsorship!
