Default Your favorite comb?

I'm trying to decide whether to buy the Heavenly Harvest horn comb, a Mason Pearson rake, or a handled comb from Kent. For those who have one of these, which one do you like the best?

The HH one sounds good, but it sounds like some people thought that the rough surface between the teeth was damaging?

That's a tough call. Honestly, I don't understand all the buzz about MP. I think if it is between Kent and MP, Kent is MUCH nicer. I have never had a prob with my HH comb, though I know some people have. I have combs by all 3 makers, and my personal fave has to be Kent.

Ohiolisa, I'm afraid I have to diagree, sorry. I think the Kent combs are very poor quality. They are great on the hair, but the plastic seems to become brittle and crack within a few months in my experiance. I thought I may have just got a bad comb when the first one shattered, but its replacement has done exactly the same thing. I found it very disappointing considering Kent's reputation for quality.
I can't comment on the other two brands as I have not tried them. I'm back to using a cheap plastic comb, which although isn't seamless (but not rough rough), has been serving me well for at least ten years. Unlike a certain brand

Wow! That surprises me. I have had my comb for ages and have never had an issue with cracks or anything. I don't blame you for not liking them. I wonder if their quality is starting to slack. How long ago did you get your first one?

I can't tell you if any one of those is better than the others... But, I have a Heavenly Harvest horn comb, and I love it.

I have a HHH comb, as well as a fine toothed horn comb and wood comb I got in a swap. I love them all! I vote Heavenly Harvest!

I have a Heavenly Harvest horn comb. I do not like it, and it is rough between the teeth. I love my Body Shop wooden comb--I use it the most. I have a Mason Pearson dressing comb that I use in the shower. I am pretty happy with it. I vote Body Shop wooden comb!

I also have the Body Shop wooden comb, and really like it, but it's wide-toothed. I need a good comb with narrow teeth for smoothing my hair - I used to have a wooden one from eBay, but it broke (I left it on the sofa and my SO sat on it!). It was nice, but not fantastic, and now I'm looking into other options.

Thanks everyone for your opinions, and UrbanEast for starting the thread!

I have both the wide and narrow tooth horn combs from HH. I really like them both! Have never tried the Kent or MP, but for the money I'd have to vote for HH.
