The TRUTH:        When I return home from my trip abroad and I saw my package from Hercules Sagemann, I was over the moon. I have heard great things about these comb and their benefits to the hair in comparison to regular BSS store combs.

When I open the package and took the combs out of the protective packaging, fist thing I notice is how smooth they were, then the seamless teeth. The end of each teeth are kind-a round, semi triangular shaped ends.

When I use it to detangle on my conditioner saturated hair, it slide through nicely and easy, it took with it just shed hair. I did not see or experience any breakage or pieces of hair from using these combs so far.

I have nothing bad to say about the quality or use of these combs and or make of combs.

Rate: 4/5

Price: US$31.00 including int’l shipping


  1. that's a lot to pay for a comb! If there wasn't one that was already cheap and didn't work, then maybe, but I would never pay that much for a comb otherwise. The seamless combs at sally's do just fine! It is nice to pamper yourself sometime, knowing you have a pricey, gold embossed tool in your hair arsenal, but I'm good for now :-) Thanks for the review and please keep them coming!

  2. Our sallys are not like the US sallys,they do not stock anything the US sallys does, hence we do not have the luxury of having access to the seamless combs that is available at the US sallys. Also the US sallys do not ship here; I have attempted to open an account and they are only shipping within the US and some items to places like Canada. Yes it is nice to treat oneself sometimes again it a lot in US$ but in my currency it works out pretty cheap. Thanks for stopping by ;).

  3. Interesting.. I have never heard of these combs. You said you have nothing bad to say about them but yet you gave them a 4/5. Why?

  4. The price is premium that's why she only gave it 4/5. But if they are durable combs and do not start flaking along the teeth edges then that would even out over time.

  5. I've had the Jumbo rake set since last Year & love them !! Waaaayyyy better than those hair ripping Denmans. Between the rake, the Oiudad double detangler 7 my Tangle Teezer, my hair is easy to detangle, happy & healthy !!!
