The Azure EdgeStick Product Review

The Azure EdgeStick Product Review

When the Edgestick was first released, I was dying to get my hands on one. At the time I was wearing my hair mostly straight but the reversion especially at my roots was driving me to distraction so the Edgestick seemed to be the perfect answer to my prayers.

As the name suggests, the idea behind the Edgestick is that it targets and straightens the little hairs around your edges and roots to get them straight without any burns or discomfort. It does this with a pair of heat proof combs surrounding a heated barrel at the center.

Before I get to what I thought of the product, let’s look at some of it’s features:

  • Ceramic with tourmaline barrel to enhance the output of ions, contributing to healthy, shiny hair.
  • The EdgeStick’s double-comb design protects the skin while catching the smallest hairs at the hairline.
  • Digital readout indicates desired temperature readiness and temperature setting.
  • Designed for comfortable gripping and styling experience.

Full feature list available here.

I watched a few videos of the product in use before I committed to purchasing it, here’s the one I saw below:

Of course I never planned on using the Edgestick on dry natural hair like the stylist in this video did (that’s a recipe for breakage all day long). I would never recommend that anyone should go at natural hair with a small tooth comb and the Edgestick with it’s little combs are no exception. I used it on recently blown out hair.

The issue that I have with the Edgestick is that it just doesn’t deliver on it’s promises. Sure, it will straighten your edges but only when the temperature is pretty high (about 380-400) but when the temperature is high, the Edgestick does in fact burn your skin!

I actually thought I was being unreasonable in my expectations so I decided to try the Edgestick on my little girl, I don’t usually flat iron her hair, it was just a test to see if she would be able to feel the heat. No sooner did I swipe it on her front hairline than she yelled ‘It’s HOT!’

    When I was transitioning this was great! I only used it on my edges though I didn’t go through my hole head with it or anything. Also I had little sections in my hair where it had broken off and was growing back, so it really helped me out. My Only complaint is that you can’t really clean it. If I had shed hair in it that fell between the rod and the guard on top, you couldn’t get it out, so you are literally smelling burning hair. Now that I am natural and can flat iron better, I don’t use it as often.
