    Definitely invest in one. It will save you a lot of preventable breakage.

    Ditto. These combs are not usually sold in BSS (the "bone combs" they sell there are not really seamless/bone combs); I ordered mine from http://tenderheaded.com/. Their prices are really reasonable; I ordered 2 combs for about $10 a piece. A lot for a comb, mind you, but they really do a nice job of not pulling out your hair!

    Swissco combs are cheaper. You can find them at beautyfirst. I like the Swissco Tortoise wet comb [​IMG]
    and the hand finished Tortoise purse comb[​IMG] I got both for less than $5. You can also find them on Amazon.com and drugstore.com

    Yes it really does. Last night I had a bad experience, I needed to detangle my ends but I didn't want to use my wide tooth seamless comb because I wanted to make sure I got the knots out. Anyway my smaller tooth comb has seems and honestly , my shirt looked like I had trimmed my ends when I was done. I didn't notice while I was combing but there where tiny 1/4-1/3 inch pieces of my hair that had been snagged and I definitely had more hair in the comb than normal when I comb my ends. I will NEVER do that again. I used plenty of detangler so I know it was the comb. I need to get them in various sizes. But you should be able to find them for cheaper than $20.

    What about ace combs? I know they are not seamless but I have these and love them. Does anybody use these?

    Yes, but if you don't want to hunt down a good seamless comb you can make your own. Just file the seams off of your favorite comb with an emery board.

    Just buy a metal afro pick. No seams, low priced.

    Do they still make the ones with the black plastic handle, shaped like a fist? My dad had one of those! :lol:

    Re: Quickie: Do These No Seam Combs REALLY make a Difference?

    Oh my yes, the seamlessness makes a huge difference - I jsut recently got a horn comb through a group order - and it's AMAZING how much easier/quicker it is to comb my hair.... the tines of the HC are actually SMALLER than my wide tooth/tiny seams plastic comb, but the HC goes through my hair MUCH easier.

    Does anyone know if the wooden combs splinter over time?

    Re: Quickie: Do These No Seam Combs REALLY make a Difference?

    I've heard that if you use them on wet hair/store them in a steamy bathroom - they will start to swell and split - and eventually splinter. Almost the only time I comb my hair is when it has product in it, so that's why I went with the horn combs - a little more expensive, but it'll last longer (assuming I don't drop it and break it).

    no ...I was answering her question about whether or not anyone uses an ace comb ...this is an ace detangling comb but it is not seamless
    I have a seamless comb that i pd around 10 dollars for but it was pulling out a lot of little hairs so I bought the ace to use instead.
    When I was a kid the ace was the only one that detangled my thick 4b hair without pulling it out and it never used to break so I bought the ace to use on my daughters hair we no longer use the seamless combs
    for us the ace works better

    ok so i tried filing my comb
    it didnt seem like it did anything
    and i filed it for like a whole minute

    should this be a long process??
    and should it be completely flat?

    i ask this, also because the seams are everywhere and on some parts of the comb it seems to be getting worst

    You can take one of this kind of comb (the one I have is a Conaire) and sand down the seams with some fine sandpaper. It is really easy this way. The comb and the sandpaper are both very cheap at Wal-Mart.

    I also have a collection of bone combs which are seam free (and great for getting rid of tangles) from a vender that was on ebay. They have them listed all the time.

    I use Jilbere's seamless combs and LOVE them, and YES they made a huge difference in my hair. I was ripping strands out with those seams.

    My comb was $2 at Sally's...much less than $20. I also have the Mebco comb which was less than $5 so I say give those a shot before investing in the high end combs.

    Hey I thought about this thread today because the hidden PJ in me that can never just go in to a BSS and ONLY pick up what I went in for.

    I bought a comb today from the Diane Line.

    It is REALLY nice and only $1.

    The website (http://dianebeauty.com/catpgs/pgItemDetail.jsp?itemNumber=D50004395) calls it the "stylist comb", but the package says "wide tooth comb".
