Hi, I'm going to demonstrate the rat tail comb and the many uses you can use with it. Have you ever wondered how those people get that zig zagged parts in their hair, or how people can part it with a straight line? Well, there's many different types of comb, but this is a rat tail comb. This one right here has a metal end, but there are also the ones that have just the plastic ones. I find the metal one to be very more useful in doing the zig zap parts and different partings on your hair. I'm going to demonstrate the most popular part right now, which is the zig zag part. You want to get the rat tail comb and lay it flat against your head. And I just want to hold it down and just draw an imaginary zig zag on your hair. Lift it up and instantly you will have a zig zag part. And notice how the lines are just so straight. And that's the benefit of using the rat tail comb. You can also use it if you wanted to do a side part, that straight line right there. Just gives you a nice, clean edge at where ever you want it. Again, I'm going to show you how you can just do it, a zig zag part where ever you are with this simple comb. And notice how that is right there. And you can simply tie your hair back. But this is the benefit of having a rat tail comb.
