A Seamless Comb
Growing your hair to great lengths requires you to preserve your hair strands. Brushing and combing, weakens your protein bonds and leads to breakage. Weekly breakage leads to no length retention. Finger combing is still the number one way to preserve your hair, however using a seamless comb is the second way. Once you use a seamless comb you will never again allow a comb with seams to go through your hair. A seamless comb is something you must experience for yourself. Worth the small investment. Best comb is the HS703WW styling comb.
