Product Review Wednesday- Maxiglide
Maxi Glide Product Review
Describe your normal routine (i.e. how do you normally wear your hair, what products do you apply to your hair, and how would you normally straighten your hair?)
I normally wear my hair in a puff or twist out. I usually shampoo once a week. My shampoo right now is Dr. Bonner's Peppermint Soap and I mix with Coconut Oil or Olive Oil. I do a an Aphogee protein treatment weekly and condition with Silk Elements. My leave in conditioner is Knot Today and I do a Coconut Cream Relaxer monthly. My styling products are Miss Jessie's Buttercream, Curly Pudding, and my very own whipped shea butter.
How did you learn about the Maxi glide?
From Audra on DCSG. ( DC Sista Girls is a yahoo online sisterhood)
What were you likes/dislikes about the Maxi glide?
I love how is soft in makes my hair. I also like that I don't have to excessive heat with the blow dryer, straightening comb, and flat iron to get my hair straight. The MaxiGlide does it all.
Would you recommend this product to others with relaxed, natural, or transitioned hair?
Did you achieve the desired results using the maxi glide?
I did, my hair was soft and straight.
How long did your hair maintain the desired straightness?
One week. I probably could have gone longer, but I wash and condition every week.
Does the steam burst button really work?
It does. I was amazed at the wonders it worked on my ends.
How long does it take to heat up?
Between 1-2 minutes.
Did you use the maxi glide on damp hair or wet hair?
The first time I used in on wet hair (learned my lesson), since I've only used it on dry hair.
How comfortable is the feel of the irons?
The iron is comfortable. I used my entire hand, I haven't been able to get the finger/thumb combination down.
Did you use you own personal products or the product that comes with the maxi glide?
I use my own products. I've (heard)good things about the MaxiGlide products may have to give them a try in the future.
What was the cost of the maxi glide and where did you purchase the maxi glide?
$70 from HSN (great price). I've paid $150 for a flat iron.
