We have two combs from Acca Kappa and they were both bought back in the States for approximately $14. I believe they retail here at around the same price in pounds sterling. I personally haven’t actually used a comb for my hair for some considerable time as there is just no need. I have short, cropped, military styled hair though the twins and my partner do use these combs on a regular basis. I have used the comb previously before my hair was as short as it is currently.
These combs come in a huge range of different styles. Some with handles and smaller, closer together teeth and some designed specifically for Afro styled hair or hair that is particularly thick, rough and / or knots easily.
The combs we have are made from solid wood and have the Acca Kappa logo placed neat to the handle and above the teeth. There are eleven widely spaced teeth on the comb and the tips are rounded to ensure that it glides easily and without any difficulty through the hair shaft.
As the comb is small it is easily portable, but the downside is that they can become mislaid – hence our owning two. We had lost the first one, only to purchase another to find the original one ‘turned up’ some time later.
They are good quality and made to last and feel thick and solid. The teeth are designed to withstand the toughest and knottiest of hair and there is no fear of them breaking or snapping off even with some considerable tugging.
Due to their size, they are easily portable and slip easily into a pocket or bag. I also think they look kind of cool and much easier to get through our kids’ hair than a regular brush or plastic comb.
They are made to last and come highly recommended though they are not so easily sourced in regular shopping outlets, which is perhaps their only downfall.
