I LOVE THIS COMB!!! I have never had a comb in my life that could detangle my hair with such ease. I have fine, kinky hair that tangles like you wouldn't believe. It used to take me about 15-20 minutes to comb out my shoulder length hair. Now, three minutes or less!! I even use this comb for styling as well, then go over it with my other styling tools. My hair hardly breaks at all anymore (of course this is due to many other factors as well). But I know that this comb has significantly reduced the breakage. I never hear that snapping soud that my hair used to make with other combs. I bought a few of these for my family and stocked up for myself (becuse I can't find this comb in stores & that is scary). It sounds silly, but this is truly one item I do not want to have to live without.
