Maxius SONICglide: The sucessor to the Maxiglide
The original Maxiglide has been a favorite flat iron among curly and naturals girls all over the world. The Iron was the first to combine ,steam technology along with a detangling pin flat to deliver “1 step” straightening. The end results were healthy straight hair that was infused with moisture. Now Maxius has decided to upgrade the technology and has released a new iron the “Sonicglide”. It is similar to the newer versions of the maxiglide but it comes with a new sonic feature.
There is very little on the web about this iron, so I decided to contact the company directly to inquire about the product. This is the answer I received:
SONICglide has four exclusive features:
1. DETANGLING PINS AND CORRESPONDING PLATE
a) The Only One Step Straightening Tool in the World
b) Detangle, straighten and smooth hair in One Step
c) Strategically positioned multiple rows of detangling pins eliminate smoothing, using blow dryer and brush before styling
d) Eliminate using a brush or comb while styling
e) Speed up the process up to 4 times
2. STEAMBURST TECHNOLOGY
a) Steam-burst penetrates hair cortex and hydrates and condition the hair especially dry ends
b) Control Stem-burst, not continuous steam
c) Hydrate and softer tough curl and freeze before ironing (like clothing Iron)
d) Greatly reduce split ends and over-drying hair caused by using Dry Heat
3. PROTECTIVE AND STYLING RIDGES
a) Rounded ridges are precisely designed and positioned to significantly reduce the exterior temperature and the risk of burns
b) The ridges are accurately placed in front of each pin to guide the hair into the grooves to easily create flips and curls
c) The grooves keep the curl organized and uniformed by keeping hair controlled and together
4. SONIC VIBRATION
a) Over 6,000 Vibration Per Minute reduce friction and the Detangling Pins easily glide through the curls and tangles
b) Hair is polished at 6,000 times per minute for great shine
c) Vibration speeds up the process even more, making SONICglide the quickest straightener in the World
In addition, the original Maxiglide was large and bulky. The plates were too wide and the unit was heavy to hold over an extended period of time. The new SONICglide is more ergonomically designed to be able to straighten, flip and curl the hair with ease.
Overall, the new SONICglide looks very promising to any curly girl who is looking for a new flat iron to straighten her locks. Although I have been satisfied with my current iron, the SONICglide is definitely going on to my wishlist. I would love to shave off some time in my straightening routine and this new iron may be the thing I need!
