How to Use a Hot Comb - Technique Tutorial | Black Vintage Hairstyling





We all remember the hot combing days. We would sit in the kitchen listening to old school music as we watched our mothers or grandmothers heat up the stove to the highest temperature. You felt a sense of happiness that your hair is going to be done and will look pretty, but yet you cringed because of the thought of the hot comb touching your scalp or burning your ear. “Hold your ear” your grandma or mother would say. You did as told.


Learning the technique of the hot comb isn’t hard. In fact, it’s quite easy. It’s just the matter of how the hair feeds into the comb as it glides down at an angle.



In the video below, I provide a step-by-step 1940’s vintage inspired instructional tutorial on how to use the hot comb on natural Black hair. I also give a brief history on the hot comb – and where it originated from.


In my next blog post and YouTube video I will explaining the pros and cons on using a hot comb or straightener as a vintage lifestylist.


I hope you enjoy the video. Thanks for watching!
