The BEST Combs for Natural and Curly Hair Eternally In Amber Combs

Let's be honest: detangling natural hair of all textures is a chore. Of all the processes we undergo in caring for our hair, detangling has the greatest potential to derail our healthy hair and length retention goals. A lack of patience, the wrong tools and products, and even the current health of our hair impacts ease of detangling, and either adds to or reduces breakage and damage.

During my transition (seriously back in like late 2012), I switched from comb to exclusively finger detangling my hair. Since then, I've dabbled in a few different combs, and even tried the Denman (which ripped way more of my hair out than I was comfortable with). Even the widest of the wide tooth combs would snag and sometimes make my hair feel a little rough. It wasn't until very recently that I learned how much comb quality matters.

Enter: Eternally In Amber Combs

The BEST Combs for Natural and Curly Hair Eternally In Amber Combs

Several months ago (like wayyyy early 2015) Amber Randell of Eternally In Amber Combs reached out and offered to send me a set of her gorgeous combs. She explained that her combs are handmade with cellulose acetate, and specially designed with natural hair in mind. Willing to give combs another shot, I was all in. And I'm soooooo glad I did -- Eternally In Amber combs have seriously changed my life!

Eternally In Amber Combs are hand poured and crafted using cellulose acetate.What the heck does that mean, and why does it matter to natural hair? Most of the combs we purchase in stores are made of cheap, synthetic petrochemical based polymers which cause a lot of static in the hair. These combs also tend to have imperfections in their finish (seams, jagged areas, etc.) that can damage, snag, and break the hair. Combs that are made of plant-derived cellulose acetate and crafted by hand are incredibly smooth and virtually flawless in their finish. The result is a sleek, anti-static comb that passes effortlessly down the shaft of the hair without damaging or raising the cuticle layer. Eternally In Amber combs do just that, and more!

After using ALLLLLL of the combs you see here, I was intrigued and so impressed. Wet or dry hair, I didn't hear any snapping or breaking, no rough "against the comb" sounds, and the teeth moved easily through my hair from root to ends and vice versa. I even used the afro pick to give my wash and go a little extra oomph, and my roots didn't get all gnarly and messed up -- and there was no breakage afterward! The ease with which each of the combs glides through my hair (wet or dry) is truly unique and amazing. I've thrown out all my old shower combs, Goody wide-tooth combs, and all the other detangling devices I've purchased over the years from Sally's and Target. I seriously don't need them anymore. I use the wide-tooth scalloped comb to detangle every other week in the shower on wash day. I use the pick for a little extra oomph when I need it, and I keep my travel combs handy for more thorough detangling and parting. Even when I rocked my straight hair, I used the travel-sized shower comb to keep my flat iron on fleek. (Are the kids still saying that?)

I've had these combs for several months, and have not experienced any damage, breakage, or excessive hair loss during the course of detangling. The combs are just as gentle as your fingers are to detangle, which is remarkable!

Now, I can't rant and rave about these combs and not give you guys the chance to get your own! From now through Saturday, August 29th 2015, look for this picture on Instagram and:

  1. Thank you so much for this! I've been needing something to detangle my mane because my old faithful wide tooth comb can't handle how thick my hair is becoming. :(
