Five Things You Should Know About Hot Combs

Madam C.J. Walker Didn’t Create the Hot Comb
Big momma Walker is definitely the reason for a lot of the advancements in black hair care, but she did not create the hot comb like some believe. The hot comb was actually first used in France back in the late mid to late 1800s for those looking to sport wavy styles. They were also obviously embraced for their straightening effects, as many wanted to wear the bone straight styles they believed Egyptians had previously rocked. Walker did however, later on improve the hot comb by widening its teeth for us thicker haired sisters, and would go on to receive most of the credit for the tool. So the moral of this story is, if you snooze you lose. Oh yeah, and the wider the combs teeth, the better.
