Depending on who you ask and what their experiences have been, there may be vast differences between combs or they may be insignificant to the untrained eye. However, the truth is, not all combs are the same, and Kent’s hand-made, saw-cut combs are miles ahead of other combs on the market.
We’ll be discussing three of the major benefits you’ll expect with any Kent hand-sawn combs. But before we go into that, how about we look at what these combs are so you can get an idea of what makes them different?
One would think all combs are similar but those who have used Kent products would attest to the quality, durability, and satisfaction that comes with using these quality combs.
Kent hand-sawn combsare not your normal mass-produced plastic combs, rather; they are hand-cut from large sheets of cellulose acetate, a durable and biodegradable material. The combs then have their edges rounded, beveled, and hand-polished, making them more beneficial for your hair and scalp than other combs. For example, the Kent 16T dressing comb is saw-cut with both fine and coarse teeth, allowing for comfortable hair detangling as well as styling thin and coarse hair. This difference in production and processing makes all the difference as we shall see below.
Compared to inferior, mold-injected, plastic combs, these handmade combs will easily glide through your hair without causing any damage. Injected plastic combs usually have some jagged microscopic edges that may sometimes pull out the follicles as you brush. However, this is not the case with hand sawn combs. After being cut from acetate sheets, these quality combs will then have their edges rounded and hand-polished so they can glide effortlessly through your hair without pulling out the hair follicles or causing any damage to your hair. The Kent 10T is made with lots of space in between its thick teeth, this makes is perfect for gentle detangling of wet or dry hair, and makes it especially comfortable for coarse, thick hair.
Kent handmade combs have another advantage that cannot go unnoticed. This is their ability to stimulate the natural oils inside the hair cuticles and spread them. Remember the combs have been hand sawn, with the edges rounded and hand-polished. The exceptional smoothness of the saw-cut teeth is why it has such a stimulating effect on hair cuticles. Using Kent’s saw-cut combs on your hair will stimulate the cuticles on each hair strand, and spread natural oils, so they can lie flat; creating strong, healthy, and shiny hair. For maximum, natural oil spreading goodness, try the Kent F3T dressing comb with all fine teeth for maximum coverage and spread.
Kent saw-cut combs are way above most other types of combs both in functionality and sophistication. Fortunately, it’s not lacking in durability as well, so you know you’re getting good value for your purchase, and a comb that will serve you for years. These quality combs are made from cutting large sheets of acetate, a material which is not as cheap and harmful as plastic. Cellulose acetate is very strong, flexible, and tactile, and will give you many years of excellent service, without diminishing in quality.
So, do you still think all combs are the same? Well, if you’re looking for the best of the bunch, look no further than quality handmade combs from Kent. They will transform your hair and scalp, won’t snag or pull your hairs, and represent a great quality product for a great value as well.
