Karmin G3 Pro Flat Iron ♥ Review and Giveaway

The day I discovered the power of the flat iron was the day my bad hair days became almost nonexistent. I say almost because there are still bad hair days, but wielding my flat iron generally takes care of the problem. Im a girl who has strange hair its frizzy, curly, wavy, wonky, and frustrating. Oh, and it is allergic to damp weather were talking instant PUFF.

So of course I move to a state where it rains 29 days of the month on average. *huff*

I think most people start cheap, and thats what I did when I bought my first flat iron. I found cheap, just to see how it worked. Its not really a good idea, because not all hair straighteners work well, and it can make you think that it isnt for you, that your hair will never look sleek or smooth. *insert sniff and sigh* Truly, though I think that pretty much anyone with almost every hair type can benefit from using a really nice straightener. Like this one:

I was given the opportunity to test my first $100+ salon-quality flat iron thanks to I was a bit skeptical at first about its ability to outdo my $30.00 flat iron, but after using it the first time, I was a skeptic no longer. Those people who swear by their expensive hair-ware are telling the truth! At least when it comes to the Karmin G3 Salon Pro flat iron.

So lets talk about the awesome features of the Karmin G3!

  • Lightweight, easy-to-use design
  • Tangle-free swivel cord
  • Temperature settings for all hair types
  • On/Off switch
  • The iron reaches your desired temperature very fast
  • Pure tourmaline ceramic plates
  • The ability to straighten, curl, flip, and add volume and body all with this one tool!

I wondered about the benefits of using pure tourmaline ceramic plates as opposed to the ceramic coated plates on my old model. Both my research and my experience tells me that the pure is better by far. Ive found that the G3 Salon pro is much lighter than my old iron. It also heats up faster. Additionally, it is said that one of the benefits of tourmaline ceramic is that it keeps the heat even, thereby styling your tresses evenly and reducing the chance that youll burn your hair.

The Karmin G3 Salon Pro comes with a very helpful manual instructing the new lucky owner of their flat iron in the arts of straightening, adding curls or waves, flipping the ends, and adding volume and body to your locks. I couldnt wait to try them all out and was very happy with my results! Yes, even my hair can be tamed!

My Experience:

Okay, you knew there had to be before and after pictures, right?

I had to not smile in the first one, they always do that on TV LOL.

Pictures really are worth a thousand words, arent they? I am really loving my Karmin G3 Salon Pro it is truly the nicest flat iron Ive ever used. Im very pleased with the ease of use (I love that it is lightweight!), the swift heat-up time, and its excellent performance and versatility. It has lived up to all of my expectations and even surpassed them! I would recommend it without hesitation.

The only suggestion I would have for the manufacturer is that an automatic shut off after a certain period of time would be nice. I did leave it on all night once. But it does have an on/off switch and I have learned to be diligent in remembering to shut it off when Im done.


I! They have a wonderfully large selection of high-quality hair tools along with reviews, the ability to ask questions about products before buying, and a direct email to a hair care expert for free advice!
