    Default Wood comb recommendations...?

    So I am a 3a girl and for the last seven years or so I have been CO and avoided brushes or combs. I do my detangling with my fingers when my hair is full of conditioner. This has worked pretty well for me and I've never had a tangling problem, but my hair has been anywhere between chin-length to hip and back again (twice) in those seven years.

    Now I'm growing out for the third time, and ever since I passed tailbone (the longest ever) this finger-combing thing just isn't working anymore. I can't get enough conditioner in for it to provide all the slip for me. I am wearing my hair up every day and braiding at night, but this morning I woke up with it matted at the nape of my neck for the umpteenth time this month -- it's serious escape artist hair and the braid just isn't doing the work for me.

    Having not combed for 7 years I am completely at a loss as to where to look. I'd like something wood and really wide-toothed and not too expensive (of course. But I am on a very tight budget right now).

    Thanks for your help, guys

    I love my body shop wooden comb, but I would recommend a horn comb too.

    I'm planning on investing in a body shop wooden comb, but last time I was there I noticed the inner "seams" of the comb seemed rough. Is there an initial sanding of the comb that has to be done, or have you ladies been able to use the comb as is?

    To me, the comb appears as if it might be more rough on hair than a plastic wide tooth. Is there a risk of snagging worse than plastic? I know that a lot of the incentive with natural combs is for oil distribution. Just wondering if anyone has observed cons of using a wood wide teeth v. plastic.


    Peace~

    With a good wooden comb, it should already have been sanded well enough. If you have to ask us about sanding, you shouldn't buy it.

    So maybe these body shop wooden combs are no longer manufactured the same way. Bummer. I'll have to look for one at whole foods sometime.

    They must not be, mine was completely smooth when I purchased it. I have also seen them randomly and rarely at Sally's Beauty Supply. Ulta may also have them.
