First Giveaway - Braid Komb braid removal comb

It's been a week of firsts:
  • Somehow my first year of (really, really part-time) blogging has come to an end! Welcome year 2 - I'm hoping for more exciting (and hair-raising) adventures!
  • I did my first Wordless Wednesday post, hosted by Untrained Hair Mom (thanks, UHM)
  • I finally won my first giveaway (thanks, Fancy Pants Kids)
  • And now, I am using Rafflecopter for the very first time, to do my first giveaway!!

JJ and I are gearing up to participate in the one month protective styling challenge at Beads, Braids and Beyond. Right now JJ has a fresh new head of twists, but they probably won't last the full month. I'm thinking there are box braids in our future.

You may remember from previous posts that I don't mind putting braids in, but braid removal makes JJ and I grumpy. A while back I discovered a tool called the Braid Komb - it's a specially designed comb that makes braid removal easier.

It's locally made (in Toronto), and not yet available in the US or online.

So although it's not a big-ticket item in terms of price (retail $1.99), there is a certain exclusivity to it in that it's hard to find anywhere but here!!

For more information about the comb, check out the Komb Story on the Braid Removal Comb website.

I have 3 Braid Komb braid removal combs available to readers from anywhere in the world (I just checked my blogger stats; I know you're out there in Japan, Israel and Peru!). Hopefully, entering will be easy with the Rafflecopter form below. Here are the details for entering:
