Have you ever had the need to give your hair volume? Limp, flat hair gets boring and sometimes you just need a little lift. Teasing your hair is the best way to make your hair look bigger. This usually involves using a teasing comb or brush. But with so many tools out there that claim to do the same thing, which one do you choose?
While I might not have tried every single teasing brush or comb out there, I do know a thing or two about the Jatai Teasing Pin Comb. So maybe I can't pursued you not to buy the cheaper teasing combs or teasing brushes, but perhaps I can shed light on why the Jatai Teasing Pin Comb is just awesome.
There are several problems with teasing hair. There's always a concern the comb or brush will damage your hair. All the friction and tension one puts on the hair to create the tease can't be good. And let's not forget the part where you have to take out the tease. That's actually a worse experience than the actual teasing! You might notice a lot of hairs may break or fall out due to teasing activity.
Another problem that might occur is difficulty creating the teased hair. Sometimes your hair just won't tease well or it's difficult to hold the comb without your arms getting fatigued after a while.
So this is why the Jatai Teasing Pin Comb is pretty darn awesome. It solves all these issues. Many teasing brushes and combs have their bristles too close together. The same can be said about teasing brushes. With a teasing brush the bristles are all clumped together. This makes the comb and brush bristles rub up against the hair strands damaging them. The friction leads to breakage and even hair falling out. The Jatai Teasing Pin Comb has 'teeth' that are slightly spread out from each other but still close enough to create the tease. Furthermore, the teeth are lined up in a unique structure so that they are staggered and not in a straight line like many teasing combs are. The staggering helps to keep the hair from rubbing up against teeth as much as possible but the staggering creates enough 'disruption' in the section of hair to create the tease.
Let's talk about the actual 'teeth' of the comb. It should also be noted that the Jatai Teasing Pin Comb has stainless steel teeth as opposed to plastic or boar. The stainless steel prevents a lot of static as it neutralizes the ions that create static. Plastic and boar can create a lot of static. These materials do not neutralize the ions so it can be a nuisance. Static only gets in the way when you're trying to tease hair.
The epoxy tips at the end of the comb are rounded to prevent further damage to the hair. But also, in the case of detangling or rubbing the comb against the scalp, you won't scrape or damage your skin. In all areas, the Jatai Teasing Pin Comb is gentle to hair and scalp but a mean teaser.
One of the other great features of this comb is the tail end. It's a great sectioning comb. In order to create teased hair it's best to take small sections. The rattail is great for obtaining these small sections without having to use a different tool to do this.
Taking out the tease is another issue. Taking out teased hair is a pain in the you know what. In fact, many avoid even teasing their hair just because of what they have to deal with when taking it out! The cool part about the Jatai Teasing Pin Comb (and something that significantly sets this comb apart from other teasing combs and brushes out there) is that it is the perfect detangler. After washing teased hair and using conditioner, the Jatai Teasing Pin Comb magically runs through the hair with ease. There is no tugging or pulling on the hair. It's a pain-free process which is a sigh of relief. Other teasing combs and brushes are not good detanglers. They actually pull on the hair creating excessive tension.
The comb is also heat resistant. So while I wouldn't apply extreme heat to it, it will withstand ample heat. I've seen people use it to even create tight curls! You can wrap a piece of foil around the tail end of the comb and then wrap a section of hair around the foiled end. Then, take a flat iron and clamp the hair around the foil. This will create a beautiful tight curl. So creative!
If I haven't said enough, there's one last thing. The price. Now some might say the comb is too expensive. Especially compared to all the cheapy combs out there, this one is not cheap. But there is a reason for this. The Jatai Teasing Pin Comb is superior in quality. The material is durable, long lasting and solid. It's going to withstand the work you put it through. And because of all the benefits that were mentioned above, I believe it makes it stand out among other teasing combs and brushes on the market. Because while cheap is enticing, it can also lead to frustrating experiences. Other comb quality issues are flimsy handles or bristles that break easily and bristles or teeth that bend or move out of place. These problems occur due to poor manufacturing or poor product design.
So if you're in the market for buying a teasing comb, perhaps give the Jatai Teasing Pin Comb a try. I'm sure you'll love it. Watch the video below to see it in action!
