Increasingly, curly and curly women are taking over their hair and displaying envy-inducing volumes out there. And when it comes to curly hair, there’s no shortage of tricks, finishes and other strategies to give even more power to the strands. Meet one of these dear tools among curly hair: the fork comb.
The fork comb is a comb model with longer teeth, capable of lifting the hair root. The distance between the teeth of the comb can vary: if your hair has open curls, choose a tighter fork comb; if your curls are very small, opt for a wide and roomy fork comb.
Betting on the fork comb can reduce the definition of your curls, but the result is a more imposing hair, due to the separation of the strands. The more times you run a fork comb through your locks, the more volume you will have.
The comb material also influences the effect obtained:
- Wooden fork comb: helps to reduce the static electricity of the wires, thus reducing frizz;
- Metal fork comb: it usually has very fine teeth, which guarantees greater precision in the movement and enhances the result;
- Plastic fork comb: plastic is the most accessible and practical material, it prevents hair breakage and goes well with the curliest hair;
Regardless of your type of curl, the fork comb is an ally to never go through bad hair days again. Just choose the right model for your hair and find out the best way for you to use it, after all, everyone knows what works and likes in their curl.
