As someone who sought out this product relentlessly at pharmacies and beauty boutiques...I was excited to find it here. I had a pair of interlocking combs I paid $5.00 for back in the 90's. I was expecting (maybe at my own fault) that being "interlocking" there would be 2 for the price. I awaited it excitedly. To my disappointment, I opened this box filled with packing peanuts to find a single comb. I can not "interlock" 1 comb. I was very disappointed. Oh yea...It also came as a black comb, not "Tortoise Clear"
You have to buy 2!! Some idiot (to us consumers) figured out you could pull one side of your hair back by using it as you would any other comb. Pull hair back w/one comb and reverse direction to lock in place. But if you want to pull back both sides as in a ponytail, it takes 2. Pretty smart now they are making double the money. I bought this PAIR (that's how it came) maybe 2 years ago, from Amazon. I couldn't find it anywhere. I used these 30-35 years ago when you could find them at the drug stores, as a pair then too of course. These are more flexible than the others offered, the teeth break easily on the hard plastic type, so this flexible plastic will last much longer.
My hair is long in the front and short in the back (think Katie Holmes famous bob-look). I like to wear my hair up and these combs do the trick because they are longer than other interlocking combs I have purchased from Amazon. I don't have to use bobby pins to hold the stray pieces up because these combs are long enough to catch those annoying loose ends. Just bought some more!
