ColorTrak Professional Weaving Comb Set
Not for long, thick hair
I can see how this tool would be very useful for certain hair types. Proceed with caution if you have long, thick or easily tangled hair. My experience was a mess of hair tangled around the comb. No matter what I tried the comb tangled painfully and hopelessly without giving decent separation from sectioned hair. The rat tail comb was so much easier and efficient for me. Again, my hair is quite long (well beyond the shoulders) and VERY thick. I believe that had everything to do with the undesirable outcome.

Fantastic Tool for Highlights!
I cannot believe that no one has reviewed these weaving combs yet. That's why I was a bit hesitant to try at first; but for this price I figured I'll give it a spin.
I am amazed!
I foiled my own highlights, and with your arms above your head they can become fatigued quickly with all the weaving and re-weaving (because it wasn't even or too thick or thin...). But with these babies, sectioning and weaving was a BREEZE!
They come in a set of two and have both little V-shaped 'hooks' at their teeth - one of them evenly spaced and the other is broken up with some hooks that grab a little bit more hair in between.
You section off a strand of hair, about 1/4" thick, and hold it up tautly, maybe 2-3 inches from the scalp - not much further away, or you'll lose your control and it can become a tangle-y mess. Sink the teeth of the comb into the strand of hair and move it right back up in one movement, a little bit diagonally to the side opposite of where the 'hooks' are open. Then you grab the hair that those hooks separated, and voila!, you're ready to foil. What a time-saver!
My highlights came out beautifully, they're even (because that's the way I wanted them this time, not so much random or chunky, although that look could have just as easily been accomplished with these combs), and in a fraction of the time it would take to weave.
And I can already see me trying out different placements and techniques next time.
Two thumbs up from me! :o)
