I need help choosing a wide tooth comb!

Hey guys!

I currently use a comb that is split between fine spaced, and wider spaced spikey bits (for lack of a better word.) The space betweent he wider bits is 6/10 cm. I'd like to experiment with using a wider toothed comb, to see if it disturbs my curl pattern less. My hair doesn't look so hot when I just rake product through it. I definitly need a comb, so I'm trying to find the right one.

I am trying to choose a resin comb from this website:

http://www.honeyfig.com/en/products/...hes/index.html

I am looking at two combs in the second row...

ghair 100% Organic Resin Detangler Comb
ghair 100% Organic Resin Detangler Rake Comb

What do you guys think? I am leaning towards the comb with the huge spaces in between. Do you think it will do the trick? (Please tell me if you think I'm wasting my money also!)

Thanks!

Hey Notty!

I can't believe you remembered that. <grin> It turns out that I chickened out. I was too scared of having someone new touch my hair. I went back to the Curly Haired Salon and got a great cut, so I figured why fix what isn't broken? I'm still keen on one day trying a hairstylist who will cut my hair when it's dry though. They cut some nice layers into my hair at the CHI, but it didn't look as awesome when my hair dried. It was still a great haircut...but I think it would have been amazing if they cut it dry.

Thanks for asking after me!
Hmmm...so no ones has used a super wide toothed comb huh? Now I'm starting to wonder if it's worth it. It's not super expesive though, so maybe I'll snap it up and do a product review for everyone! Hehehe.
I found a wide toothed comb at Sally's but, even though it was only about $1.29, I didn't waste my money on it, because my fingers work just as well, and I trust my fingers better anyways.
Cleanser: Liquid Castile Soap diluted in a foaming soap dispenser
Rinse:
ACV rinse
Detangler/Conditioner:
Oyin Handmade Greg Juice or Juices and Berries
Stylers: Botticelli Botanicals Styling Mudd, KCCC, Honey Rinses and BRHG, Crack Leave-in Hair Cream when straightening

Tools: Silk pillowcase, Floursack towels, Jersey T-Shirts, Wide Tooth Comb, Velecta Paramount TGR-VQX Hair Dryer (for when I straighten) and BaByliss PRO Ionic Rollabout Hard Hat Dryer
I did some research and I realized my favorite combs were not seamless and one of the teeth broke. I got the Mason Pearson rake, and I have to say I love it. I use it mostly in the shower and sometimes to apply product. It cost more than any other comb I've seen in stores, but it was cheaper than some of the other seamless combs I was checking out online. I found it in a local beauty supply shop and paid around $26.

Thanks for the visuals! Im starting to wonder if a comb with wider teeth really makes a difference or not. I was only considering on, because I have read that it's best not to disturb your hair that much when you're out of the shower. My hair seems to need to have product combed evenly through it, so I wanted to see if a winder toothed comb would disturb the curl pattern as much. Then again...I guess you are still brushing the hair regardless, so maybe it doesn't matter at all!
I definitely get better product distribution when combing - it's okay as long as your hair is still wet - and I would say the wider the teeth, the better for this. Some say that wider teeth attribute to good clumping, but my hair seems to form skinny curls even when I finger-comb so I can't attest to that.

I tend to spritz with water + conditioner and comb 4th day hair if I don't feel like washing it yet and it seems like I have quite a few tangles / loose hairs. Having a wide-tooth seamless comb keeps me from feeling conflicted about it. The wider teeth keep the curls from shredding quite as much - BUT I'm a 3A on day one and more wavy than curly by day 4, so that could make a difference as to whether this would work well for you or not.

I have the jilbere shower comb from Sally's (seamless), and I believe this one is the same at CurlMart: http://www.curlmart.com/store/produc...1737eb46c60590

The only difference between the one at Sally's and Curl Mart, is that the one at Sally's is pink, and a different brand (also cheaper). I don't use a comb at all because it made my hair less curly...

I'd go with the really wide one with the handle (the second one). I love combs with handles, because they are easier to, well, handle. I find it makes no difference if a brush or comb my hair on my curl pattern, as long as I do it while wet.

Either way, that style works great! And it has its own hanger.

shoulder-length 3a/b, depending on weather and products (or lack of products!)
I use that Sally's one too. It is cheap like me!
I have been thru some combs.. To many to count, and one thing I have learned thru the Curly Girl Method is to use your fingers.. Not only do u feel and know when to be more gentle and also more aggressive I guess you would say but it's not like ur going to misplace it, lol. It's so much better working product without losing, most combs end up throwing so e product off to the side of shower, etc.. But with your fingers you feel when u need to scrunch product back in and you also get a feel of how much of a product gives you that consistency you want.. With a comb ur not sure but ur fingers feel it for u
I love my Mason Pearson rake also. I also have their set detangler and tail combs too. Can ya believe that I use each of them on my wet hair? LOL. My ideal comb would be the rake comb (for the wider spacing of teeth) with a handle liken the detangler. I have a shorter rake type comb made by Creative that I travel with.
