Fist Handle design Metal teeth Afro Hair Comb : A kitchen tool, not a hair one

first_img Sorry i made a mistake in the last review. It was excellent and on time. That was meant for a different seller x. I couldn’t buy one in the high street as good as this one, they were plastic and the teeth were to thick. This one is just perfect for me i would recoded it highly to anyone. Great comb for medium sized afro. Great comb for medium sized afro. However i just wish the picks where a little longer becaaue when u pick ur hair it doesnt reach the midle of your head. I use this item to cut onions, cucumbers etc. I wanted this for holding onions and such like to cut them and it works great. It doesn’t look like this picture and i don’t have long hair. But it is absolutely perfect for holding onions and other stuff while i slice them, which was the reason i bought it. Another use for this comb which is very useful. I have actually bought these for holding food such as onions in place while cutting them. Perfect size, lovely finish, combs well and doesn’t cut hair like other combs, very pleased with my purchase, will buy some more for spares. Ive had this for over 6 months now. Still my favorite afro comb. Great even with thick/ rough hair. I’ve got really tough hair and one of the teeth fell out at some point. A kitchen tool, not a hair one. Used for holding fruit or veg still for easy slicing, a great addition to kitchen tools. Well made but minor cosmetic difference to picture. Feels sturdy and arrived quickly. Functions 100%only gripe is that it doesn’t look like the picture. It’s one of those copycat versions that has the circle cross window bit in the handle. Arrived on time and does what is suggests on the blurb.I utilized it for a distinct objective as a kitchen utensil to aid slice veggies, but it seems like a strong comb.It does not look particularly the identical but nevertheless very good. Solution is nice but it is marginally even larger than described with a like cross in the center just before the handle part with the fist. I would advocate the seller to update the picture of the product.My son has long gone by way of a number of plastic afro combs around the years. Teeth are strong, very good grip handle. Although i think would be even better if the space between the comb was larger for. Although i think would be even better if the space between the comb was larger for children with thicker hair because with this one you have to nib at those thick air at the back of the head until it loosen up enough to comb properly. That been said this comb is a must if your child`s got afro hair. My brother loved his afro comb, he still uses it like mad. There isn’t any bad things to say about this afro comb as its really good. I bought this for my husband. It’s good quality and he go everywhere with it. Bought this comb for my daughter 4a hair. It isn’t the best at detangling her thick hair, as the teeth a too close together. It is well made and of good quality, which is amazing for the price. It does not look exactly the same but still goodbut it looks like a sturdyAlthough i think would be even better if the space between the comb was larger for Perfect Afro comb!Strong and ResilientBest Afro Comb YetFist Handle design Metal teeth Afro Hair Comb.

Outpouring of support after childrens deaths Everyone is pulling together

first_imgHALIFAX — There is a growing outpouring of support as Canadians look for ways to express their grief and help after the Halifax house fire that killed seven children and left their father in critical condition.Seven kids, aged between three months and 14 years, died in a fire early Tuesday. The children’s father, Ebraheim Barho, remains in critical condition.The young Syrian family arrived in Nova Scotia in September 2017 as refugees, and the scale of the tragedy has struck a chord with Canadians.A GoFundMe campaign had raised roughly $438,000 by midday Thursday, with a $1-million goal.A popular Halifax doughnut shop, Vandal Doughnuts, was donating the proceeds of its sales Thursday to the family.“There was no hesitation when the news broke that we wanted to do something, and we felt this was the best way we could contribute back,” said general manager Jonathan Imber.He said more than 100 people were lined up in the falling snow Thursday morning, waiting for them to open.“Response has been humbling. It just shows you how much this affected everyone in the city, and everyone is pulling together,” said Imber, adding a number of their suppliers had donated goods, and he expected to sell about 3,000 doughnuts.Peace By Chocolate had also donated cases of chocolate bars to assist with the fundraiser, he said.The now-famous Antigonish, N.S., company was founded by the Hadhad family, who fled their home in war-torn Syria in 2012 and arrived in Nova Scotia with next to nothing in 2016.Tareq Hadhad, CEO of the company, has said Peace by Chocolate aims to give back to the country that welcomed his family when so many nations were closing their borders to the Syrian plight.Meanwhile, a Halifax woman and her cousin have started an effort they hope will give people another way to show support for the Barho family.In a Facebook post, Andrea Bennett encouraged people to display stuffed toys outside their homes.“I am at a loss for the Barho family and I know as a community we all want to do something to remember the lives of those 7 beautiful children,” she wrote.“What if as a community tonight we place stuffed animals outside our doors in memory of the children, like the hockey sticks for the Humboldt Broncos players. What does everyone think?”The idea has caught on, with stuffed toys seen on front steps and balconies near the scene of the fire.— By Kevin Bissett in FrederictonThe Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgBy NICK PERRY, Associated PressWELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — The Duchess of Sussex on Sunday congratulated New Zealand on becoming the first country in the world to allow women to vote 125 years ago, and said that effort had paved the way for others around the world.“Suffrage is not simply about the right to vote but also about what that represents,” Meghan said. “The basic and fundamental human right of being able to participate in the choices for your future, and for your community.”Meghan, Duchess of Sussex receives a “hongi” a traditional Maori welcome on the lawns of Government House in Wellington, New Zealand, Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018. Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are on day 13 of their 16-day tour of Australia and the South Pacific. (AP Photo/Kirsty Wigglesworth)Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, are on the final leg of their 16-day tour of the South Pacific, which has taken in four countries.Meghan, who describes herself as a feminist, was speaking to a group of mainly women guests in Wellington that included Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. Meghan got a big cheer when she opened her speech with a greeting in indigenous Maori.The function was designed to celebrate the suffrage anniversary, and Dame Patsy Reddy also got a cheer when she pointed out that she was the nation’s third female governor general andArden was the third female prime minister. The event was delayed after a fire alarm, believed to have been triggered by an atomizer spreading air freshener in a bathroom, forced guests to briefly evacuate the building.Earlier, the couple was greeted with an indigenous Maori welcome.Harry and Meghan each performed a “hongi” with Maori elders, in which they pressed noses together to share a breath. They were welcomed with traditional haka performances and a 21-gun salute at Government House in Wellington, New Zealand’s capital.The couple are scheduled to spend four days in New Zealand, where they will go for a trail walk in a national park, meet young people training to be part of the film industry and visit a hatchery for the national bird, the kiwi.At Government House, a group of children got to meet the royal couple. Minnie Newman, an 11-year-old from Kelburn Girl Guides, said she was impressed with Meghan.“I love her dress and she was really pretty,” Newman said. “She seems really nice and kind and would be good for royalty.”Greta Crowe, 11, said she told the couple that the best part of being a girl guide was getting to meet them. She said Harry responded, “What, waiting around at Government House in the cold?” and the couple both laughed.Hundreds of people gathered outside barriers at the Pukeahu National War Memorial, hoping to catch a glimpse of the couple on their only public walkabout in the capital.Harry and Meghan arrived on the same plane as a number of competitors returning from Sydney’s Invictus Games, which Harry founded in 2014. The games give sick and injured military personnel and veterans the opportunity to compete in sports such as wheelchair basketball.As well as Australia and New Zealand, the couple has also visited Fiji and Tonga on their tour.last_img read more
