Best Answer

Annie Turnbo Malone obtained the first patent in 1900, but Madam CJ Walker (Sarah Breedlove) made improvements on the comb by widening the teeth for better result in straightening and prevention of tearing and breaking the hair.

In later years after improvements, Walter Sammons obtained a patent on the pressing comb in 1920. By this time Madam CJ Walker (1867-1919) was dead. Walter Sammons did not invent the pressing comb.

The pressing comb was actually invented and produce in France in the mid 1800s.
