One of the great things about hair care today is that we have so many more options than we did even 20 years ago. With more information and knowledge comes more choice. Anyone who's ever tried to comb through a head full of thick hair with a fine-tooth comb knows -- it just ain't happening.
Some years ago, I stumbled upon Tenderheaded Accessories. I bought a hair clip, not knowing if it would really work. By "work", I mean hold all of my hair up and not break. And you know what? It did work and is still working, several years later.
If you haven't ever been to the site, please take a look around. The company makes products specifically for our hair, whether it's relaxed or natural. I also have a seamless comb from there (like the one pictured), which is perfect for not getting snagged on curls and kinks.
Brushes, hair covers, rollers, pins -- they have a ton of accessories designed to be gentle to your hair.
