Seamless Bone Combs

How to Choose a Comb for Natural Hair

  1. Wide-Toothed Comb
    The best combs for natural hair are wide-toothed, which means there is adequate space between the rows to allow movement through the hair without tearing up ends.
  2. Seamless Comb
    A good comb should be seamless. A comb with seams between the rows can tear at your strands and cause split ends.

Best Combs for Natural Hair

  1. Bone Combs
    The best comb for natural hair is a bone comb. Bone combs are very special. They are made from organic resins instead of cheap plastic.
    Bone combs are seamless, anti-static and heat-resistant. They only get better over time with use and last for quite some time.
    I’ve had my giant rake bone comb for over 6 years now and it’s still as good as new. The edges have become even better over time.
    I also have a medium bone comb with wide teeth, which I take with me to the salon whenever I want to braid my hair. For even more bone comb options and sizes, Hair Sense offers this.
  2. Wide-Tooth Combs
    This kind of comb is a step down from bone combs as they are not made from the same resilient materials.
    However, if it has a wide tooth and is seamless, then it should be fine for your hair but it will not last as long as a bone comb depending on how often you use it.

How Often Should You Detangle Your Hair?

I do a detangling session once a week on full regimen day. This is more than enough for my hair type and needs. Some people may require more sessions.

However, if you have curly and kinky hair, I wouldn’t recommend trying to detangle more than twice a week.

Irrespective of which detangling tool you use, detangling too will often cause breakage.

5 Top Tips for Combing Natural Hair

  1. Run your comb through damp hair. Natural hair is easier to comb when damp.
  2. Finger detangle first before you run a comb through your hair.
  3. Do it in sections. Depending on the length of your hair, 4 – 8 parts is a good idea. You can use butterfly clamps like these to secure each section.
  4. Comb your hair through when you have the time and patience for it.
  5. After combing each section, twist, and pin before you move on to the next section. Do not try to comb a huge amount of hair at once. You will lose a lot of hair this way and cause split ends.
