Comments about Andis High Heat Press Comb:
My old electric pressing comb finally bit the dust, so I went looking online for a new replacement. After checking out a few models, I purchased the **Andis High Heat Pressing Comb **primarily because it boasted a real gold-plated comb (retains heat and leaves hair silkier) and 20 variable heat settings. It's nice that the pressing comb can reach the high heat levels that very coarse and very thick hair require, as well as the gentle touch that my thinner, finer hair demands.
The first thing that I noticed about the press comb is that it is a good, substantial weight. Not too heavy as to make my arm easily fatigued, but not so flimsy that it's hard to control. Since the level 20 (400 degrees) is way too hot for my hair, I decided to start around 5, and work my way up if necessary.
As promised, the pressing comb did heat up quickly and I was able to get started pressing out the new growth of my roots in no time (the majority of my hair is relaxed). What I discovered during the process is that the press comb works well even at lower temps. The swivel cord didn't tangle up, and I like that it has an automatic "off" safety feature. The biggest hiccup in this product is that the controls are inefficiently placed. A couple of times I noticed that I was accidentally touching the control while I was pressing my hair. Once I turned it off and another time I somehow increased the temp. With a little practice, though, I've been able to avoid any problems.
Overall, the **Andis High Heat Pressing Comb** is much more high-temp than I need to straighten my hair. However, it's multi-temperature settings make it a good choice for women of all hair types. If they ever redesign the placement of the controls, it would earn a perfect rating in my book.
