The comb is a great tool for styling and detangling your hair. Some people prefer to use the comb as a detangling tool because the finger detangling method takes more time, unfortunately.

If you choose the comb, like most people, please choose one with large teeth. Section your hair before coming it and most importantly, take your time. 

3. Denman Brush
