The Utsumi 140 Carbon Comb has a metal tail and is 9" long. The 140 comb has a mix of alternating long and short teeth. This makes it ideal for teasing the hair. The metal tail is great for sectioning or for working with foil. A Carbon Comb is completely anti-static, so it does not tangle the hair. The teeth are incredibly smooth so they easily move through the hair. The Carbon combs are heat resistant, can be sterilised by boiling and also used with a dryer. (Utsumi was formerly known as BW Boyd). Made in Japan.
