Five Things You Should Know About Hot Combs

A Hot Comb Can Be TOO Hot
When a hot comb, the stove top version that is, sits and warms up on the stove, it needs to rest at a medium to medium low heat for less than a minute. To test the heat of the comb, many people recommend using a paper towel (not the really cheap thin ones) and holding it against the instrument. If the paper begins to burn, then it’s obvious that the comb is waaay too hot. And just as you wouldn’t want a scorching hot flat iron on your strands (for your hair and your hand’s benefit), you sure don’t want a searing hot comb passing through your head, close to your scalp. Not only can it burn your hair, but that can also lead to hair loss.
