My Comb

018Never let it be said that I don’t bring my readers the most riveting of social commentary. I mean, if Solomon could speak of the wisdom of ants and consider how they are organized and work diligently compared to some human beings, well then, I might be able to make observations about… things as diverse and delightful as… my comb.

This week, I left my comb behind. It never made it into my makeup bag for one reason or another. Mind you, I can’t use just any run-of-the-mill comb. My wild mane necessitates a really wide-toothed comb. Alright, maybe a comb that closely approximates an Afro pick, but stronger, if that makes sense.

Heavy-duty, super-sized wood or plastic.

After using my brush for the first day in our other house, Benedetto and I are out running errands. _big_time_combsWe’re dividing and conquering. He will get me a comb.

Although he’s known me and my combs for decades, I explain again what I need/ want/ desire. There are several stores that might carry such a comb, whether high-end makeup stores or perhaps even the occasional drugstore.

My husband ends up at Sally Beauty Supply. Brilliant.

There, he finds the most amazing comb, or actually, set of two combs. They are big and they are plastic. One appears to approximate frosted-glass color, the other, half its length, tangerine.

cricket1The combs are made by Cricket and are said to be anti-microbial. No, this is not a paid endorsement which I can prove because I’m unclear about what that means. Actually, I know what anti-microbial is, but in regards to a comb-?

The receipt is still in the bag and I gasp at the price: $2.69. For my two new, favorite, big combs. These are keepers. You heard it here first.

Do you have a favorite comb?

    My situation exactly! Curls and waves out of control. I would take the black or lime combs. Unless you have hair like this you don’t understand what a big deal combs are! Thanks for the hot tips next time I need one. What do you do in the summer???

      I try to get it as straight as I can, but I’m not a professional stylist… If it gets too hot or frizzy, then it’s time for the ponytail, braid or topknot, depending on what events I have that day. I feel your pain! (This should be our biggest deal, right?)
