    Default What type of comb do you use?

    I thought it might be interesting to see what types of combs people use, such as wood, horn, plastic and hard rubber, as well as what brand, and what hair type hair everyone has.

    What type of comb do you use? What is your hair type, thickness, and texture? Does it work well with your hair type? Do you have different combs for different purposes? This poll allows multiple choices, so check all that apply for you!

    I do have a wood & plastic comb. But currently I am only using my Hercules Sägemann or EIA comb to detangle prior to washing, and on wet hair I use my Hairsense comb.

    I use a plastic wide toothed comb, just because it was 1$ at the drugstore. On the days where my hair has too much static, I just use my fingers instead.

    Wood. I detangle with my fingers and combinates the comb with my BBB. Works fine for me.

    What type of comb do you use? I have two Madora #116 combs.
    What is your hair type, thickness, and texture? 3b/iii/f
    Does it work well with your hair type? The Madora-- it is very sturdy, has a thumb hold on the spine, its tines are thick and rounded tips and the perfect width apart for detangling and not leaving any knots like wider toothed combs do (Conair etc.) The weight of comb guides the comb down through my thick hair--I went for quality instead of quantity.... as JJJLonghair recommended. I too was hesitant to spend so much, but it was $30 with shipping $35 so not that much and worth it. I probably will never have to purchase another comb... ever!!
    Do you have different combs for different purposes? Just two of this same Madora comb. I liked it so much that I purchased a second one for detangling outside of the shower with evoo.

    I was also a bit hesitant due to the price, but I decided I could always return it if I didn't like it. But I loved it!! Wooden combs can't be used in the shower as the water will ruin it... btw... good luck with whatever you decide but I promise you that you won't be disappointed! Your hair is iii and thick and curly like mine and this works and really gets through the thickness during detangling. Also, I have dropped it several times in the shower .... slips out of my hand due to the conditioner... and it is so sturdy.. I don't worry about it breaking. I am also noticing alot less shedding during detangling too!! I treated myself knowing it was more expensive than other combs out there.. which, btw are still like $18++ so for another $10++... it is so worth it!! I like to think of it as quality over quantity...

    Am I dense? I can't seem to figure out what Madora combs are made out of, even after looking at their website.

    I had an Eternally in Amber comb in my possession for precisely two days before I lost it. But it's fine, because I ended up not liking it as much as I thought I would. Plastic does not agree with my fine hair.

    I currently have a sandalwood comb, but have been considering buying a horn comb. Not that I've had any issues with my sandalwood comb. It's been very gentle on my hair.

    I use a battered old horn comb that has lived in my purse for many years.

    Theoretically.

    I actually use my fingers at least 90% of the time.

    Found this on the Madora comb, but not what it's made out of:

    "Sturdy, extra wide teeth make this comb ideal for use after washing extra long hair or to detangle thick or wavy hair when dry. Swiss-made to Madora specifications. Size: 7 x 2 1/2 inches. This comb is also available in Tortoise (color)."

    I use a Madora 116 and I'm a 3a/f/ii. When the comb arrived, I was shocked by how much better it worked than my previous combs. I'm not sure why, but I suspect it has something to do with the angle of the base where the teeth meet the body of the comb -- I noticed this because it doesn't work as well if I hold the comb upside down. Whoever designed this thing really knew their stuff. I don't use any other comb now.

    I do not have access to any fancy combs, so when I do comb (only while my entire head is soaked in conditioner) it's with a plastic one. Unfortunately it has a seam. I suspect it breaks my hair which is why I usually opt for finger combing, but I would love to have a wood or eternallyinamber comb.
