"Best Hair Comb"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

There was an issue and they only sent me one comb. Novica fixed this. Now I have two awesome combs. It is almost impossible to find wooden combs, and for my natural hair, plastic combs are painful. This comb pulls out tangles and snags and does not hurt. Now I have two. I would not put this on my wall, and there is no hook attached. They fit comfortably in my hand. In my case, I was searching all over for wooden combs, and could only find plastic ones. I bought this product specifically to use as a comb. Im very satisfied.
