View Full Version : Good but inexpensive comb?

November 12th, 2013, 09:41 PM
I've finally hit a length where I can't use a brush to detangle my hair anymore. I need to switch over to a comb. However, my fiance is underemployed right now, so we're pretty darn broke. I need a seamless comb that won't break the bank.

I would very strongly prefer a comb with a handle - I have a disability that means my fingers give me trouble, so being able to wrap my whole hand around the handle makes it a lot easier for me to comfortably work with my hair. (Besides that, I've been a brush-user all my life, so having a handle just feels more comfortable and natural to me)

Im not entirely sure of the exact name but I believe it's called a shower detangler comb. It works well and I believe it's only 3 dollars on amazon, although I've also seen them in sally bees.

Something like this will most likely be good:

I've been using a wide tooth shower comb from Sally's Beauty Supply. If you have a Sally's in your area, then perhaps you could go in and peruse all the combs. If you prefer to shop on line, then their website has a number of wide tooth combs with handles.

I found this one:


but perhaps you'd prefer one like DweamGoiL mentioned. It has much larger tines. Good luck in your search!

I really like this wooden one from eco tools (http://www.iherb.com/EcoTools-Spa-Headband-Comb-1-Piece-Set/48818#p=1&oos=1&disc=0&lc=en-US&w=wooden%20comb&rc=6&sr=null&ic=1) here is a handled (http://www.amazon.com/Handcrafted-Neem-Wood-Comb-Eco-friendly/dp/B00B187C9M)

While it doesn't have a handle, the Body Shop wide toothed wooden comb is a very good one. It is cheap and comes from sustainable sources. http://www.thebodyshop-usa.com/hair-care-products/hair-brush/detangling-comb.aspx

How can you tell whether the plastic combs are seamless? :hmm: I've been using one I picked up at the drugstore, but I figured I should probably upgrade a little to something that is seamless, since I'm using it every time I detangle. Obviously, the wooden ones are seamless since they're not being cast.

I second the body shop comb.
