Hello I am interested in purchasing this pressing comb and everything looks impressive. But, I do want to know if the shield is removable. I have been pressing my hair for several years and am looking for a good ceramic plug in, so navigating heat was not really my concern so much as good hair care. Thanks.

Answer:Yes, the shield is removable. We do suggest leaving it in place. It doesn't interfere with getting a good press and it protects the ears, forehead and neck from burns. The backside allows you to get down to the roots. So, we don't see a need to remove the shield other than possibly to clean the comb occasionally.

Hi Do you have a dual voltage version of this product. I bought one online and got my friend to bring to the UK but forgot all about the voltage differences. I can only find 220 -120v converters with 100W and am not sure if this is suitable as the product says 125v and 90w. I don't want to risk damaging the product by trying this out......help!

Answer:The comb was designed to be used in the United States or places with the same power. A converter that is designed for using US products in the UK should work as long as it converts to 110-120V.

Does anyone prefer the Lovely Strands to the Jilbere root pressing comb? My hair is too short to pull between the double combs with that barrel in-between so I think the flatter Lovely Strands comb might actually work for me.

Answer:I'm not familiar with the Jilbere root pressing comb, but I can certainly vouch for the Lovely Strands soft press comb. With the regular electrical ironing comb, I could never get the temperature just right. It would either be lukewarm or too hot, even though I wiped it with a cloth, and as a result I would scorch my hair. This led to major breakage and hair loss. With the Lovely Strands comb, I just have to set it to my prefered temperature with no worries of it being too hot or cold. I have had no scorching of hair or scalp burns ever since. I can also now get to those 'nape of the neck' and behind the ears hair without getting burned. Since I do my own hair, using this soft press comb has been a lifesaver for me. I intend to purchase another one.

Answer:I love the lovely strands. It straightened out my natural hair. You can also get close to the roots. My hair came out so straight as if i permed my hair. I'm really glad that I brought this product.
