Now every girl needs great hair care products and that includes a flat-iron. If you have fine or coarse hair it doesn’t matter, you need a flat-iron to get that bouncy, silky straight look. We all know popular brands like Chi, Sedu and Babyliss but I want to introduce you to GA.MA. GAMA is an Italian company that specializes in hair care tools.

Now the LCD screen had a black scratch on it. I originally thought the pixels had been damaged during shipping. Since this was a press sample I didn’t mind but if I would have purchased it I would have sent it back. A few months later I dropped it and the scratch just went away, so maybe it was just something under the screen.
What attracted me to this flat-iron is the laser ion technology. The 1″ plate is ceramic but produces infrared heat which is better for hair than conventional flat-irons. The ion technology produces negative ions which helps balance hair and eliminate static/frizz.
There are 3 reasons why I like this flat-iron, the number 1 reason being how hot it gets. The digital temperature control goes from 302°F-464°F, most flat irons only go up to 350°F-400°F. The high temperature is great for straightening thick and coarse hair. Now the digital control is in celsius because it’s an italian flat iron. That part doesn’t bother me because I always use the highest setting on my natural hair and the lowest to mid temperature on my extensions so I kinda wing it. I could see the celsius reading turning some off about the product. Some people like to use precise settings and constantly finding a celsius to fahrenheit converter can be annoying. GA.MA should think about changing that if they plan on continuing selling in the US.
My second favorite feature is that it heats up super fast. Within 60 seconds it reaches the highest temperature so no more waiting around for your flat-iron to be ready. Plus is has an indicator on the screen that tells you when it reaches the set temperature.
The last reason is that it just works great! I don’t have to go over the same strand of hair over and over to get my hair straight. So the process isn’t super time-consuming. It doesn’t burn or snag my hair. I get great results every time I use it.
I do recommended this flat-iron. Outside of the salon this flat-iron has given me the best results straightening my hair. You can buy the GA.MA Italy CP3 Digital Laser Ion Flat Iron from Folica for about $120 which is a reasonable price for quality irons.
