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!

Yes they do, IMO.

This thread might be helpful for finding seamless combs less than twenty dollars, including Swissco, Conair and Creative:

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

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

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!

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.

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).

I bought it from hairproducts.com

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
