Yeah, Royal Mail is the worst, by far. Probably even worse than DHL. The plus is they are cheap.

just ask someone in new york to proxy them for you? won't cost much (if you find someone nice) and it'll definitely go faster than 3 months ^^

I can definitely do that for people, however I have noticed that the only place that has them here that I know of charges a lot more than listed on the Kent website.

Anyone know the specifics in styling your hair to look like this guy's hair?

 

 

 

 

I've been using AC Fiber. Only problem is that the hold isn't as strong as I would it to be. I tried AC Pomade and its completely crap, no hold whatsoever. In any case, can you guys recommend me something that has strong hold and is not bad for your hair? You think I will have better luck with either the AC firm hold styling gel or Aveda firm gel? Thanks guys, appreciate it.

What I use, Lush The Big Tease. Or even, which might be easier to find, American Crew Tea Tree Firm Hold Styling Cream. it is in a tube, not a jar.

Kent has a eBay store where they sell their factory seconds. Would be difficult to find combs since those are plastic and molded but they have a lot of natural bristle brushes with wooden handles that contain blemishes for steep discounts.

You still have to deal with international shipping. "gbkent"

From Kent's website:

"Kent’s handmade combs are saw cut, and then hand polished and buffed to create soft rounded teeth that will not damage your hair or scalp. They are made from cellulose acetate, a non-petroleum based plastic derived from plants that has been found to create less static in hair. These smooth teeth stimulate the natural oils inside the hair cuticles as your hair is combed, and it is this oil that encourages the cuticles on each hair to lie flat creating strong, healthy, shiny hair.

A non-handmade comb is known as an injection moulded comb. They have razor sharp teeth which damage the hair cuticle, and ultimately cause split ends. These combs also feature tiny ridges, known as ‘mould marks’ which scratch and snag your hair causing breakage and severe cuticle damage."

I guess my earlier post about it being molded was not completely true. It's molded then teeth cut by hand.

Kent combs definitely feel better on my head than anything I ever got at a Ricky's or something.

I hope they are worth the wait.

I was joking about the "being made of horn" comment btw.

Thanks for the recommendations. Been looking into them and a few other brands.

 

In any case, has anyone used the following products and can describe the hold in comparison to the AC Fiber (AC Fiber is pretty weak imo)? And are they good to use for side-parting?

Hanz de Fuko Gel Triq

Hanz de Fuko Sponge Wax

Kevin Murphy Night Rider

ID Hair Extreme Titanium

Baxter of California Clay Pomade

Received my kent combs today. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

There is definitely a difference between a kent comb and what I was using before, it feels smooth and doesn't scratch. I will order more in the future.

I use American crew fiber and it works. I have really curly hair and I cut it short to obtain the traditional comb over.

For those that have long hair/have grown it out before, did you get cuts often to keep it looking trimmed? I've never had it very long and I'm thinking of letting it grow out some, but my hair is pretty thick and starts to look ragged pretty quick. I'm thinking of going between "medium" and "long" - yes, extremely subjective. Any advice?

I had long hair in high school. What I did was just let it grow out for several months to the point it looked horrible then I got it shaped and got like maintenance every 2 months.

I've got KM Night Rider.

Currently have a type of side part reminiscent of this:

 

Long in front (can cover my eyes) a little shorter on top and very short on the sides and back.

 

I only use Night Rider for the sides and some final tweaking where I need extra hold. For the top I've got Hairbond Moulder.

Night Rider is very thick, greasy and hardens fast when applied. My hair has a tendency to poof out on the sides so I put some there to hold it down.

It's too shiny and greasy for me to use over my whole hair and it would weight it down too much. It can also clump hairs together if you're not careful. Still, it's the best clay I've used for strong hold and it's perfect for what I use it for.
