Flat Iron Experts - Karmin G3 Salon Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron Review

As  you can tell by the title, I'll be sharing my personal thoughts on the Karmin G3 Salon Pro Tourmaline Ceramic flat iron which can be found at Flat Iron Experts. This flat iron comes in 3 shades which are pink, black, and white (which is the colour I received). The product was shipped in less than a week, which is by far the fastest I've ever received a package for something of this size within Canada.

Let me just start off by saying how beautiful the packaging is! I really appreciate all the details put into the packaging of this product, and will definitely be keeping it. On the back of the packaging you get a brief description of the product, the list of product features, and a list of what is included in the package.

When you first open the packaging, you see the carrying bag which contains the flat iron (which is beautiful & great for traveling and storage), an instruction manual with tips on how to achieve straight, curly, and flipped hair with this iron, and a unique product registration code to verify the authenticity of your iron and begin your 3 year warranty (yes, 3 YEARS!!).

Now, on to the iron! On the top and sides of the iron you see the company's logo (Don't mind the rubbed off logo on the sides). The on/off switch and temperature control are all in one switch. The temperature of this iron ranges from 248°F to 460°F, which is more than hot enough for any hair type. When you switch the iron you will see a flashing red light, and when it reaches the desired temperature the flashing will stop & the light will stabilize. I kid you not, in less than 10 seconds the iron is already hot, and in less than 30 seconds it is ready for use. This iron also has a 2.5 meter swivel cord to prevent tangling, and is dual voltage; meaning it can be used in every country!

To test this iron, I decided to straighten my Rosa Hair Products Brazilian Virgin Curly hair. Prior to straightening this hair with the Karmin G3 Salon Pro flat iron, my hair was blow-dried and curled with flexi rods. The before pictures are with my hair brushed out using a large paddle brush. 

Here are my results after using the flat iron (with the assistance of a heat protectant). I could see a significant difference in how straight my hair got in comparison to the last time I straightened it (which can be seen here). I can see that the hair does not look as "poofy" as it did when I last straightened it, and there were no kinks!

I also received the White Sands Stuck Up Mega Hold Styling Spray. Since I already straightened my hair, I wanted to avoid putting more heat on my hair or teasing it, so I busted out my good old practice mannequin. I started out with the concept of doing an updo on short hair, but then it became... eh. I teased the middle section of the hair, then smoothed out the outer sides before securing it with the hairspray and bobby pins. At first when sprayed, the hair may appear somewhat shiny, but it fades after a few minutes. The hair is firm after it is sprayed, but not hard and crunchy like some other sprays I've used. Also, when I brushed the hair out after, there was no flakes or residue left on the hair which I greatly appreciate!

 I highly recommend this flat iron to people of all hair types! My hair is naturally very course in texture, and it was able to get my hair pin straight to match the texture of my extensions. Not to mention that this Rosa Hair Products hair I currently have installed is curly, but no kinks whatsoever was left even after being curled with flexi rods. I'd also recommend this hairspray to anyone in search of a good brand that will get the job done, without flaking up afterwards. The Karmin G3 Salon Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron can be purchased for $159.99 Canadian, and the White Sands Stuck Up Mega Hold Styling Spray can be purchased for $19.99 Canadian. Shipping is free on all orders to the US and Canada over $50. Also, if you make your purchase in the month of April you will receive 20% off all orders over $100!
