Cool hair tool from Sally's

I posted a pic of this tool in another thread about creating tighter curls. This tool is, like, the cat's meow! lol! ;p It has several different lengths of prongs, and slides through the hair like butter.

I use this comb for lifting my roots while I give them a short shot of heat, and therefore create volume at the crown. (I can't use the clip system, it breaks my hair when I try to remove the clips.) You can use it as a round brush in a way, because you can stick it in your roots and pull them out slightly, then aim a shot of heat at roots. Sometimes, I just use it to gently lift my roots, so I can get a bit of heat in with my blowdryer. It won't stick in your hair or disrupt your curls. (I have long hair, nearly waist-length.) Or, I stick the ends directly against my scalp, twist gently to encourage clump/curl, and then give it a shot of heat.

You can use this tool for creating spiral curls too, or creating a curl in a piece that is stubborn and won't curl properly - you wind it in your hair from the bottom up, like winding spaghetti ;p lol! It does work. It never sticks in the hair, either. It does not cause tangles (well, at least not in my hair!) it just slips back out effortlessly.

I bought mine at Sally's for about $5 and they are beside the hairbrushes. It requires nothing but a twist of the wrist and a small shot of heat from the blowdryer. Great for flat bits and stubborn bits. :) thought I would share...

    There is no instruction on the package, and the sales clerk did not know what it was good for or how to use it ;p but I bought it cause my "gut" told me it would be good, and I love mine! lol! Go for it next time you are there - it is a useful little thing! :D I even use it to twist my bangs into submission :) and as I said, it is *amazing* for lifting your roots!

    I was in Sally's tonight and remembered this thread, so of course i had to pick one up! At my Sally's they had these in a bin on clearance w/ a bunch of other clearance combs and brushes, and it was only $2!! The package says it is the "Large" size.

    I can't wait to play w/ this tomorrow. I have these pesky sections on the left side of my face that stubbornly curl inward no matter what I do and always look a mess. I can't wait to play w/ this new toy tomorrow when I diffuse and see if I can get things under control!
  • Knotty_MaddyKnotty_Maddy Posts: 518Registered Users
    Let me know how it works out for you, JPLMom! You were lucky to get it for $2 - I will go check at Sally's this week myself, as I have a medium one and want a large :) thanks for letting me know about the sale, and I hope it is useful to you!

    Yes, everyone, please post back. I'm interested in this tool but I want to read reviews first.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:
  • Knotty_MaddyKnotty_Maddy Posts: 518Registered Users
    well, you could always go to the Sally's link and read the reviews there, though there are only two so far ;p lol!Newave - Curl Easy Pro Brush For $2 - $5, I would think you can't really go wrong...and hey, if it doesn't work for you, you could use it to twist your spaghetti, lol! :D

    ETA: for the record, I didn't think mine would really be useful at all - and now I am quite addicted to it :)

    Hmm a new hair toy... Although I don't need more volume I'll probably pick one up and see what I can do with it, maybe fix my "bangs"

    OK - I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an awesome find! Used it two ways: After I low-pooed and conditioned this morning, I plopped for a bit and then put some gel in. While my hair was wet, I went through w/ the curling brush and very quickly twirled sections all the way around, away from my face. So, I was kind of "molding" my hair. I air dried for about 40 minutes, and then diffused. While I was diffusing, I used the brush again to go in at the roots, did kind of a twist and lift thing while applying heat, resulting in AWESOME root lift (normally hard for me to achieve, my hair is really heavy!)

    My hair looks really good, different than normal, this was a great tool for kind of "redirecting" my curl and wave. I hope it's not just beginners luck, and that I can consistently get these results! I already think I am going to go back to Sally's and buy a back up! I'd also be interested in getting the medium one, I think it would work even better for my shorter layers.

    Thanks for sharing such a great discovery!
  • Jas76Jas76 Posts: 2,283Registered Users
    Wow! Now I REALLY want to go get it! Lol!!

    I think someone needs to do a video...
    Or at lease some pics!

    I dont think my hair would respond well to twisting all the way around, but I think the root lifting would be good!

    And I'm willing to experiment! Lol!!

    JLPMom, I am so pleased you had a great success with it! I use mine the same way, twisting certain clumps that are more stubborn or inconsistent, or applying the tips of the comb to my roots and twisting to make the root lift and clump properly :) (with a dash of heat).

    Jas, I am sure it will help you create root lift...I hope you like yours! I think JLPMom said she got a large? I have a medium, and I am going back to get a large! Handy to have both sizes, and I think the large would work better for the roots :)

    THe thing I absolutely adore about this gadget is that it has so much slip, it never, ever gets stuck in my tangly hair :D So unlike other tools, I can actually use it painlessly :)

    Thanks! That's really nice of you! If they don't have them at my local store I may take you up on that!!

    What size do you have again? I would think the smallest size would be the best for curling... ? Of course I'm still not sure exactly how this gizmo works - lol! I get using the tips to lift the roots, but I'm a little foggy on the twirling or the curling...

    I have the medium, which is useful for sidewalk chalk width curls, but I think the large would be awesome for the roots - think of a roller size...it would be like using a round brush or rollers, but it doesn't split your root clumps or anything. The small one is quite slim, would be good for sharpie-size curls, I think. I would pick the size that suits your personal curls.

    For using it to place a curl, you just put the end of your clump in the middle prongs, and twirl it with the direction of your curl :) leave it in a sec, then slip it out, without disturbing the curl you've just helped. I also use mine to gently pick-comb my roots and my bangs once they are dry. So it's kinda like the Swiss-Army tool for hair lol ;)

    And you're welcome, anytime. :) Always happy to help a fellow curly.

    Oh!! Thanks, I understand more now!! :)

    And I didn't realize the small was that small! Sounds like the medium would be better for me then, though I do have some "sharpie" curls underneath. ;)

    I'm excited to get this and experiment now!! Lol!!

    Just picked one up at my local Sally's today - cant wait to try it! But I agree with another person, that a video would be awesome...
    2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
    fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate
    My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

    If any of you want to make a video, feel free! lol...I am too much of a techno-idjit to do it. Anyways, I'd have both hands busy in my hair ;p lol!

    Jas, looking at your hair, I'd say medium width would be fine...I put my index finger in an "o" shape around my medium one, and it (my finger) connected to the joint, or knuckle, in my thumb. I have medium hands. I have to say that when you put the prongs directly onto your roots (end of the comb directly against the head) and you twist it, and give a shot of heat, it keeps root clumps looking awesome, as well as giving a twist n' lift. Since I only blow dry my roots, it only takes me a few minutes to achieve the kind of lift I want, without disturbing my curls or breaking my hair...hth!

    Jsuzkelley, hope it works for you - please let us know :)
