The best combs are anti-static and have hand filed teeth. They range from hard rubber, carbonite, silicone, wood or composite materials. Combs with hard edges or missing teethes “shave” the hair shaft and can damage your hair. Big teethes combs are mostly used to detangle hair while smaller teethes ones are used to style. Never “rip” the com through your hair, hold on with one hand while you gently, slowly use the comb below where your hand holds.
