As ironic as it seems, most people whom I know of are willing to splurge on hair care products (shampoo, conditioner, mask, or any sorts of treatments), but not many of us are willing to splurge on a comb.
Over the years, I would not say I have purchased many combs, but most of them are the cheap plastic brush/combs even with the fact that I have had long hair all my life. I was never really particular about combs, until I met Acca Kappa.
Showing you 3 different hair brushes: Acca Kappa, 101 Hair Care free brush, and a mini hair brush from the Body Shop for traveling. Let’s put the mini aside here, as it is nothing really fantastic. I got it because it was on sale, and I needed one for traveling.
When I first received the free 101 Hair Care brush, I thought it was the best that I have ever owned, of course, when I compared it to all the cheap plastic combs in the past. The handle is nice to hold, the tips are not too hard, and that’s about it – all I that I need from a comb.
By comparison, when you press the pins down, it is harder and the cushion does not sink. It’s not springy like Acca Kappa. It does not bounce to create the ‘massage effect’. The pins are thicker and the distance between the pins are wider.
Now, moving on to this Acca Kappa brush.
The design of this hair brush looks really generic, but the mechanism is totally different from what I have used in the past!
When you press the pins down, the soft bed sinks rhythmically with the pressure! Imagine massaging it over your head, the pins are thin enough to separate your entangled hair, yet gentle enough to massage your scalp without hurting you, thanks to the rounded tips.
The first time I glided the comb down my hair, I was impressed!
It is totally different experience with this brush.
The very first day of using this brush, my hair felt magically soft even without any hair serum! Good stuff you bet!
I so felt like hugging the hair brush and award it!
This is the largest size of hair brush in their line. The design is very ergomonically sophisticated. The wooden handle is very nice to be held and it does not slip from your hand, not with this size of brush anyway. It dries up pretty fast after shower too. I really wonder what is the big technology built within the comb. Maybe it’s the wood, maybe it’s the cushion, or maybe it’s Acca Kappa! ( Maybe one day they will pay me to be their advocate ^_^v )
I thought it is a rather interesting topic. So, would your splurge on a comb? What’s the most expensive comb that you have ever purchased?
Price: RM150 (prices vary with the sizes, starting from RM90 for the smallest brush)
Availability: Acca Kappa stores
Note: The above experience is only based on my one week’s use with the brush.
