Magic Star: Perfection in design and function!

The Magic mini Star Rake is an “all-around” comb just like it’s big sister. The mini Star Rake works like a hand to add volume, separate curls, and blend sleek straight styles.  This mini Star Rake can handle even the toughest jobs:  detangling hair, distributing your favorite conditioner, gently gliding thru wet hair, awesome shower comb.

The mini Star Rake’s compact size of 6.5″ long makes it ideal when you’re on the go, in your gym bag, or even paired up at home with the Magic Star Jumbo Rake.  The mini Star Rake comb works perfectly in the 1st phase of the 3Comb Smooth.

No worries about snagging or ripping your hair. The teeth are absolutely free of any seams or burrs. The teeth are hand-sawn, hand-cut and hand-polished to perfection! In the Salon, at home or when traveling, Hercules Sagemann’s combs are unbeatable for styling.

Tip: Use nothing but the best on your hair…even at the salon!  Consult with your stylist about using your comb(s) at all of your appointments and get the most out of your hair care regimen.  Remember, if it’s not a Hercules Sägemann comb, it’s just a simple comb.  See for yourself!

Whether with lots of volume, curly or smooth, with or without texture, styling combs make an individual look possible.  Particularly when smoothing the hair, it is important that the comb is absolutely burr-free.  Only in this way is it possible to guarantee that the hair cuticle is preserved. The width, length and shape of the tooth determines the type of texture and gives the individual look. It is a friend to your hair and scalp. The ideal styling comb for every look!

    I purchased the Magic Mini Rake, and fell in love with it! I’m of mixed race and my hair is very unmanageable. This is the only comb that actually works for my hair. No pulling, no tangling, no snags!! I’ve saved myself hundreds of dollars a year since using this product.

    Thank you hotCombs for making high quality products.

    I was a little skeptical to pay so much for a comb, but after watching a youtube video of a young women who transisitioned from relaxed hair to her natural hair rave about the comb I decided to give it a try. First, may I say that the customer service at hotcombs is excellent and I received my order promptly. (Ordered on Friday and received my package on Monday.) If you are looking for a good multi-purpose comb that you can take from the shower and use as a styling comb without worrying about pulling out your hair and it’s small enough to fit in your purse comfortably this is the one. You won’t be disappointed. I think I am going to order the jumbo rake next I love this so much. I just don’t need the full-size right now because I just did a big chop on my hair but in a couple months I’m sure I’ll order the full-size. If you have a lot of hair, you will probably want to spend the extra money on the jumbo rake or order both and use this one to keep in your purse.

    Thank You for the AWESOME service you provided. I have had my comb for a few months now and I am still loving it!! I plan to share it with my beautician 🙂 THANKS AGAIN!!

    Bought the set of rakes and have used this one daily. It really makes detangling a breeze- and for my natural afro hair, that is the last word I would use for my detangling sessions 🙂

    THANK YOU THANK YOU! When they are back in stock, definitely get this comb for natural, afro texture hair, or even thick, coarse, curly, wiry hair that is natural or transitioning to natural. I like this smaller one – a little easier on the wrist, but I bought the set and plan to leave this small one in my purse.

    This may be called the Magic mini Star Rake, and yes the size may fool you, however, this Little STAR is simply amazing!!!!

    I have natural curly long hair with at least 4 different textures, and sometimes she is just difficult. I ordered this little star the same time I ordered the BIG STAR, after misplacing the BIG Star I grab my little star and thought hmmm I hope this work, well to my surprise she in many ways out performed the master, great for your bag and your hands, she is just wonderful. In addition, I was pleasantly surprised how this comb glides through my hair without ripping or tearing my curls.

    Thank you hotcombs for providing superior products and top notch customer service. I truly enjoy each and every one of my combs, brushes, scarves, and satin sleepcaps from hotcombs.

    As always, Natasha is AMAZING!!!!

    This is a great comb for ouchless detangling. It doesn’t leave your hair fluffy or static charged either. I have thick, wavy, mid-back length hair, until now I’ve always used a Mason and Pearson – but this comb kicks it. I’ll be getting another!

  10. Rated 5 out of 5


    I’m a 4A/4B Natural and when I first saw the comb I thought what the heck its seamless,but once I used it my jaw DROPPED! I was able to RUN this comb thru my hair DRY!!! (Only to see how it really feels) I also was wary about the sharp angle edges…it felt Sooo good on my scalp. NOT SHARP AT All. If your like me and only want the best of everything for your hair your looking at the right comb collection.

  11. Rated 5 out of 5


    PROS: Firm but flexible; super durable (I drop it in the sink ALL the time); so easy on the hands; massages, doesn’t scratch the scalp; parts coils, curls, kinks like the red sea; moves through super thick hair effortlessly; nary a snag. Great customer service, perfect size for my hands and mid-length thick coils.

    I bought one several months ago. I had never seen a comb like it before and was concerned that it would be too small and wouldn’t do what I needed. But I gave it a try, and was so happy with it, I bought 2 more recently — one for travel and one for my everyday purse. I don’t want to be without it.

    Works great for dry detangling my (kinky and fine textured) hair in sections with oil. Also great for wet detangling with conditioner. I have no breakage with this comb.

    The shipping was super fast and the customer service was EXCELLENT! I had questions about another comb I wanted and I received a very prompt, accurate and helpful reply.

    finally! the comb i have been looking for is here. combs out hair with very little breakage and no snags. i ordered like 5 of these (gave 3 away as gifts). i had second thoughts when it came down to the price (kinda pricey) but once i used it, it is worth every penny!

  15. Rated 4 out of 5


    The point of the spikes feels quite sharp against my scalp, but the comb is good. I have fine hair and I could probably skip using this comb, but it is good for the initial detangling instead of using fingers. I also bought HS1975 Styling Comb and Magic mini Star.

    I’m relaxed and I had stopped using a comb because I was losing too much hair. When I got my comb I immediately combed my hair. Once all the shed hair came out, there was no more hair on the comb. I kept combing and combing and still no hair. Now I still don’t comb my hair in the shower, but I comb it once and I get out and I lose maybe 2 or 3 strands of hair. It amazes me! I really didn’t think it could make such a big difference, but it really does. I will never use a regular comb again. And I keep my combs in my purse so that none of my sisters will “borrow” them like they do my other things. Yes, these combs are that serious. LOL

    This comb is incredible and does everything it should!!! Glides on like silk!

    I just wanted to drop a line and tell you how pleased I am with your rake combs that I recently purchased. For my fine, thin, straight hair and my daughter’s kinky, tangly hair, it is by far the best comb we’ve used. My shedding has cut back drastically in a short time and my scalp isn’t dry and itchy anymore. This comb glides through my daughter’s tangly hair like magic. I’ve been telling my friends about these rake combs. (The mini is my favorite but they are both superior to all other rakes and detanglers I’ve spent my hard earned money on.) Thank you very much for these phenomenal products!

    I am loving my mini star rake comb! I have been natural for four years, and my old combs had seams and were pulling and snapping the ends of my hair off. With the mini star rake comb, I don’t have that issue anymore!

    When I got my order I had had my hair in a protective style for about two weeks. Usually detangling after taking out my protectvie style is horrible, but I was able to detangle my whole head in a half hour. I wish I had this comb when I was younger, but better late than sorry.

  21. Rated 4 out of 5


    There was less pulling and the comb made my hair smooth. I lost less strands as there was no seams to break them off. Also, there was less time spent on styling my hair as the comb just went right through.

    This wide comb detangles my hair easily. I have curly hair which tangles a lot, especially after it dries from washing. I have noticed a considerable difference in the amount of hair in the comb which is one to three strands. Before I had this comb, my hair used to come out in bunches on my other wide comb.

    I have very thick, curly/wavy, tangly hair that I could only detangle while sopping wet with conditioner. With this comb, I am able to get through it wet or dry, with no snagging! I love it!

    Great quality combs!

    So this Magic Mini Star Rake is the first Hercules Sagemann comb I’ve purchased.

    I had seen many reviews on the larger Magic Star Rake, and I was looking to replace a Shower detangling comb, and thought it would be perfect for me. I couldn’t decide which of the two I should get, and customer service was excellent, very pleasant, so I decided upon the Mini Rake.

    While it does what it says it will, I didn’t realise that it’s not the same as a Detangling shower comb. The pictures online are good, but it was my mistake not knowing that these combs are somewhat “blocky.” and not the same as your typical shower detangling comb.

    It DOES detangle hair, but I have a lot of very long fine, thin slightly wavy hair(Caucasion hair), and it took me longer in the shower than it would normally have with a detangling comb, due to my hair constantly wrapping around the really long teeth.

    It also took longer to get all the tangles out than it normally would in the shower.

    It is a very nicely made comb, very cute style, perfect size, and while ANY type of hair can use it, I think it’s best suited for Afro type or mixed/really thick Hair. Really short, thick Caucasion hair would probably also benefit moreso than if it were long.

    Boy am I glad I didn’t get the bigger rake, because I can only imagine it being even more wrong for my hair type than the mini lol

    Oh, alsoo the Mini Rake acts as a pick as well too due to it’s really long teeth, and since they’re also widely spaced teeth, I couldn’t get conditioner as evenly distributed as I normally can.

    With all this being said(and in order to help other people from doing what I ended up doing which was in the end buying three more combs) because the quality is so great in these combs, I then decided to try another comb which was the 1975.

    That one worked well too, teeth are a bit shorter and not as individually wide as thev Mini Rake, a bit better but again the problemn with that one for my hair was it was widely spaced horizontally as well, so I still wasn’t getting all the tangles out of my hair, and the bottoms of the teeth in both styles were sharp especially with my sensitive wet skin in the shower. I’d need to be carefull not to hurt my scalp lol

    I never did notice before purchasing that they tend to have sharp edges, however with use, they do somewhat get less sharp.

    So after using the 1975 for a while, I finally decided that the 703WW looked like a better bet for me as it looked online like the teeth should be not as wide horizontally as the 1975, and the teeth should also not be as long as the Mini Rake.

    Turns out, it is better for my hair as a detangling shower comb than the Mini Rake or the 1975, and the funny thing is even though it says under it’s details page, that it has “medium” spaced teeth, it’s teeth are actually wider spaced than the 1975(I measured them side to side myself.)

    The teeth are shorter though, and this is why it works so well for my hair because my hair isn’t wrapping around the combs teeth, as it was with the other combs. So it’s funny with each comb I’ve bought, I’ve come closer to the kind of comb my hair really needs, and my showees have gotten shorter with each comb I’ve bought lol

    However it is a bit smaller, but not as small as some people have mentioned. One reviwere said it was like a “toy comb” but this is far from the truth, it’s acytally not much smaller than the 1975, however the handle is a bit shorter, which I think actually makes it better.

    It’s perfect and it fits in my small cosmetic bag when the 1975 wouldn’t, again due to the long handle on the 1975.

    It is a slightly smaller comb, but I have really long hair, and it works better for my hair than the previous two I’d bought, now the teeth are still really sharp on the bottom, but not as much as the other two were for me.

    So anyway, I finally noticed that the other small comb style which is the Magic Mini Star, has rounded teeth on the bottom and it’s teeth don’t look that close together, so I’m waiting on that one and hopefully try #4 will be the best detangling shower comb for my hair! (keeping my fingers crossed!)

    They’re all great combs though, but just wanted to let others know about my experience, it might help save others from spending as much as I have on combs I’m not using, because currently I have the Mini Rake and the 1975 which I don’t have any use for right now because the 703WW works the best for what I need so far for me.

    One last thing to note is that I’ve read reviews saying the combs smell strongly of rubber but they DO NOT! I have a really sensitive nose and if you put your nose right up to them, then yes you can smell a slight rubber smell, but it’s not offending at all. No more so than a plastic comb smell, in fact I find it less “smelly” than any plastic comb.

    I use this comb as the first phase of the 3comb smooth, when detangling my hair. I have natural hair (and fall into the type A category). One thing that I absolutely love is that you can also use this comb as a pic. You can pic your roots to style your hair as you will like (or even into an ‘fro). I love that you can use it in more than one way.

    Bought these combs in Germany and love, love, love them. So glad to find them in US. This company was just great. Received them so fast. Will be back

    Compared to a regular wide tooth comb the Magic Star Rake is way better. Detangling is very easy and I have much less hair loss now. Plus the comb is made of good material and I like how well it can fit in your bag when you’re on the go.

    I highly recommend this comb!

    Now days people brag about their products but often don’t live up to it. You must know if I didn’t like the Magic mini Star Rake I wouldn’t make an comment at all. But, I must tell you this Magic Star Rake is the best I have both sizes and had to order another mini Magic Star Rake for my purse because I raved so much about it to my daughter that she had to try it on my granddaughters hair and begged me for it and of course I gave it to her because I still had the larger Magic Star Rake but needed another mini Magic Star Rake for my purse so of course I ordered it. Again, I must tell you this product is everything hotCombs states. I love this rake it is the best. Highly Recommended Highly. 🙂

    This is the best comb for combing wet or damp hair!! My girls LOVE how it does not hurt as much on wash day. I used to get a ton of hair in the old shower comb we had been using, but not this comb! My daughter was like WOW, mom hardly any hair! These combs are a must if you are trying to grow and retain your hair length!!

    I’ve used it once on one of my daughters since I got it. She has really fine strands that easily pull out or break. I really liked the comb as it did not seem to pull on her scalp and was gentle on her fine strands. It really does work like degtangling with fingers. We’re in attachment styles right now but I look forward to using it again; especially on my other daughter’s courser hair and update my review then if need be.

    This is by far the best comb on the market for natural hair. At first I was skeptical because of other products that were said to do well for natural hair. I bought this comb, tried it and Love it.

    I love this comb! I bought this comb about a year ago and had to buy another, not because it broke or anything but because it keeps getting stolen by family members! I love the wide teeth and I really like how while I’m combing my hair, it feels like it’s massaging my scalp at the same time. Not only have I been able to retain length because I have less breakage but I’m sure this comb is helping with my hair growth. Best comb ever.

    I love this comb. I have the large one & about 5 others & I can’t stand to use any other comb; not even the special combs for tangles! I use this one for getting out main tangles before using smaller combs. I also had to buy another one of these just to use for distributing oil when I oil my hair. Once you use these seamless combs; you’ll never go back to any other comb. I love, love, love these combs!
