Want to fix your hair using carbon fiber?

These combs are made from the same material used in cars

We love keeping our cars clean, no matter what the cost. But admit it: Most of us would often try to cut costs where possible in other aspects of our lives—like styling our hair, for instance—to put the extra money toward more car parts (or even another car).

So, if you’re someone who’s looking for a gift to give to a petrolhead, how about a comb that’s a little different from others? Check out these Chicago Comb Co. products. These are made from carbon fiber—the same material that is universally adored by car lovers like us. The company also offers combs made out of titanium and stainless steel, which are also found in high-end automobiles.

To be honest, I don’t use combs that much because my hair doesn’t like to stay in place. But comparing these things to the combs found in my house, they’re built quite solidly with no flex at all, and they run through your hair smoothly without catching on anything. Being made out of carbon fiber, they’re extremely light, so they won’t add that much weight to your bag (or purse).
