One of the most frustrating things while on a healthy hair journey is wanting to flat iron your hair but you flat iron doesn’t have a temperature dial or button. Having the correct temperature when flat ironing will reduce the risk of causing heat damage. One of my favorite flat irons is the Maxiglide. Unfortunately, none of the Maxiglide flat irons have a temperature dial. So I set out to get a better idea of what temperatures correlate to what numbers on the dial. I reached out the manufacturer for help and they gave me the answer that I needed. I wanted to share the Maxiglide flat iron temperature chart just in case someone needs it.
Most people try to stay around 200 degrees but according to the company, the minimum temperature for the Maxiglide is 234 degrees. I would suggest only using one pass if you are trying to keep the temperature low and prevent heat damage.
I will say after I sent my email, they responded fairly quickly. That is always a plus for me…love good customer service.
Anywho, the information below came directly from an email I received from the Maxius company that is the manufacturer of the Maxiglide. This chart applies to all Maxiglide flat iron sizes.
“Here are the settings you requested. Start with the lowest setting and move up gradually to see what works for your hair.”
Temperatures in Fahrenheit by dial number:
1 = 234 degrees
2 = 255
3 = 277
4 = 298
5 = 320
6 = 342
7 = 363
8 = 385
9 = 406
10 = 428
Tips: Please use a heat protector to prevent heat damage to your hair and do minimal flat iron passes over the hair. Only flat iron on clean dry hair. Click here for tips on picking the correct temperature for flat ironing.
