Magic Star Rake Set INCLUDES:

  • Magic Star Jumbo Rake
  • Magic mini Star Rake

Now the awesome Magic Star Jumbo Rake is paired up with it’s little sister the Magic mini Star Rake.  You don’t have to be without your Rake, rather at home with the Jumbo, or on the go with the mini Rake’s compact size of 6.5″.  But don’t let size limit your creativity; both Rakes are “all-around” combs.  The extra wide and long teeth of the Rakes work like a hand to add volume, separate curls, and blend sleek straight styles.

The Jumbo and mini Rake can handle even the toughest jobs:  detangling hair, distributing your favorite conditioner, gently gliding thru wet hair, and awesome shower combs.  The Jumbo and mini Rakes work 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 Sägemann’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!

  • Made by hand from 100% Vulcanized Natural Hard Rubber
  • Tried and tested design with perfect ergonomics
  • Twist-resistant and yet flexible
  • The teeth are hand-sawn, hand-cut, and hand-polished to perfection!
  • Non-porous (will not support the growth of mold or mildew); guaranteeing hygiene
  • Chemical and heat resistant
  • Very smooth and gentle to the hair and scalp due to rounded tips and sides
  • Very good gliding ability when combing through the hair

    Just purchased this on Saturday and received it bright and early on Wed. Morning! Used it right away on my coarse naturally coily afro hair. It took me 60% less time to detangle and my scalp was not tender at all 🙂 I used the mini first because of size, and the Jumbo during my washing and deep conditioning. Excellently made and I’m sure will last many years! I’m sanitizing all my other combs and trashing them!

  2. London, UK

    Extremely pleased with the combs. I am long-term transitioning to natural and in my 5 month. Dealing with the 2 textures is getting harder and harder, all the time trying to preserve the delicate ends and thicker roots. Fine-haired ‘type 4’ and use these for detangling conditioned hair – a breeze!

  3. Topshelf

    I have 4a/b hair with fine, dense strands and these two combs are the best things that has happened to them. I have other seamless combs but the teeth are too short. These combs moved through my wet hair (with conditioner) like a hot spoon in ice cream.

  4. Tineybean

    I will never use a seamed comb again! The smoothness of the Jumbo Rake is unsurpassed; it’s like finger-detangling only better! My breakage is way down, and I’m still getting all of my shed hair out, which means fewer tangles. I took the mini rake for a spin this weekend when I went out of town. It’s just as effective as it’s big brother but more portable. No regrets with either comb.

    No really, I have 4b/4c type hair and I don’t think I could be more pleased with this comb’s performance when it comes to detangling my hair. Who doesn’t want to lose less hair? I’ve found my comb and comb manufacturer of a lifetime. Sounds cheesy right? But I really do feel this this way.

    Awesome for detangling! I keep the small one in my purse. These combs are so sturdy I know I will have them for years to come!

    I’ve read many reviews about these combs and I must say that they were right!!! No breakage, the comb glides through my hair. Great for detangling and everyday use. I’ve ordered some for my mother and a friend. I know they’ll love it.

    These are the absolute best for combing through snarly hair. I have long fine hair that gets tangled underneath all the time. These are the best!

  9. Beverley

    My combs always had some sharp or grabby areas that snagged, sliced and ripped at my hair. Then a friend told me about H.S. combs, I was hesitant until I saw the factory video and saw workers smoothing the edges of every tooth on the combs. My comb finally arrived this comb glides through my hair. I bought two more to complete three phase combing. I am getting one for my mom. My combs are the best Ever

    This is a super nice comb set. I can’t believe that I just recently introduced these combs to my hair, and to think that I thought my hair care practices were the best; only to discover these combs. I feel better about combing my hair more often since using them.

  11. Lanette

    I noticed a huge difference right away with this comb set. I detangled my hair while it was dry and it was a breeze. I have long, naturally curly hair and detangling can take an hour or more. With this comb set (I tried the mini rake and the large) I was done in 15 minutes and that was because I kept combing through my hair, in toatal awe that I could do this. Once I combed through, my hair did not tangle within itself. Also, used on wet hair in the shower, definitely noticed less shed hair. This was the test for me. Would I notice less hair loss on wet and dry hair. These combs passed the test. I will order a set for back-up and to give as a gifts.

  12. Terri

    OMGeee This comb set is awesome. I tried it to detangle my 4a/4b hair and it took less time, and I lost minimal hair. You can tell this comb is sturdy… love it

  13. Angie

    I have purchased this set and I love it!

    Your CS rep took out a great deal of time a few weeks back, just chatting and making me aware of the possibilities you offered….that is worth every penny I spent! Thank you!

  14. milkchocalate0

    I saw a you-tube vid. and was sold but everytime I went to the site they were sold out. Finally, success and I ordered a small and large Rake. I love them both I have less breakage and the Rake feels good on my scalp and hair. A product you must have not try have.

  15. Longhairow

    I was a little hesitant about spending so much money on a darn comb, but I am glad I did, definitely notice a change when I comb my hair with the Magic Star Rake & Mini. My hair no longer feels like it is pulling as I am running the comb from the root of my hair to the ends after detangling my hair. With a regular comb I felt & heard the slicing of by strands mid shaft of my hair, I am cringing as I type this. My hair is reaching MBL, hopefully with this comb, I will retain more length, less splits, which means less trimming of my ends & my goal length is WSL hair, :)…………BEAUTIES BUY THE COMB, your hair will thank you. My only negative about the set, is the mini is so darn small, smaller than expected, I could do with another rake.

  16. drbrilliantlygorgeous

    I have very thick APL Afro-textured (4a) natural hair and I completely adore this rake set! All my life, I’ve completely loathed the “de”tangling process of my natural hair, I’ve never had such a pleasant experience passing any comb through my precious coils; these high quality ingenious combs are truly amazing! My scalp wasn’t sore nor was I in tears upon completion of my “de”tangling process. I’m so grateful I took the plunge and decided me and my hair are worth the investment! The amount of hair that is removed compared to what I used to loose still leaves me in absolute awe, only a few shed strands every time (whether damp, wet or dry) I only wish I purchased my combs earlier in my journey.Thank you Hotcombs and Hercules Sageman/Magic Star!! Buy this set! you won’t regret it!

  17. Jojode

    These combs are the best way to go to minimize breakage and excessive shedding. I can see and feel the difference when combing the hair, wet or dry. I can also detangle my daughters’ hair without too much hassle. A must-have in every household !! Worth every penny. The comb are sturdy so breaking them seems impossible.
    I have relaxed (texturized hair) DD have 4a/4b natural hair.

  18. Natural Woman

    Great comb set for the “natural” African American woman…great for detangling and styling thick hair. Advantageous to have the jumbo comb for home and the mini comb to carry in your purse. The wide teeth are makes combing your hair effortless:)There is actually no hair left in the comb!

  19. Anonymous

    The jumbo rake is great for detangling large sections of hair. I use the mini rake for a more thourough detangling. Both result in minimal breakage. It provides a better experience when compared to other high quality combs.

  20. Yolanda Baron

    Finally a seamless comb that makes manipulating my hair easy. I have found I have had less breakage and no excessive pulling of my strands since using the jumbo comb. The greatly designed flat teeth allows the comb to just glide through my thick new growth which helps the shed hair to slide out effortlessly without causing knots and tangles.

    I have had the small reake for a while now…and my teenage daughter took it for her own use and then, my mother….So i ahd to order another set to be able to use the comb myself!

  22. Marsha

    All I have to say is awesome, I bought some other combs as well. But this one is the best for detangling, my hair and scaple appreciate it. Very little hair came out while detangling, I was thinking to myself I wish I knew aboout this when I first went natural. I have a combination of 4b/c hair type and a little bit of 4a as well.

  23. rufus n me

    too many didn’t look new.the teeth were spaced out to far as well.not good for my med length hair.however,i would purchase another one with closer teeth than the magic star.

    hotCombs Response on 31st Oct 2013:
    Thank you for the review and stating your concern. We are sorry to hear that you are not completely satisfied with your purchase.

    The combs are definitely brand new. The very light abrasions occur during the process of producing the combs. There are multiple steps by machine, diamond cutters, and by hand to produce the combs. The abrasions are not detectable by hand nor will it cause damage to the hair strands since the combs are highly polished.

    We have tried our best to make the site as informational as possible. That way, customers can make an informed decision for their hair care regimen. As for the space between the teeth, we believe the product page provides an accurate description of the comb. It describes the comb as being very large and works just like a hand.

    A link on the page called the 3Comb Smooth, has been provided to give even more details about the spacing of the teeth. In this instance, the Jumbo Rake is considered an extra wide tooth comb. Depending on the customer’s hair type, we do suggest that a wide tooth comb should be used rather than an extra wide tooth comb.

  24. Shaundra

    I am enjoying my Magic Star Jumbo Rake. It does feel like I am detangling with my hands. I have the same amount of shedding with my rake as I do when I finger detangle. I really like that it doesn’t take as long to detangle with this product. Well worth it! Thank you!

  25. Mrs Bedell

    I got the set of combs after reading a few blogs about them must say am so glad I ordered them I was so sick of the salon hurting my head after my shampoo so I took them in and had the shampoo lady use them on me what can I say the job was done and I was pleased maybe now I can care for my own hair at home

    I purchased this comb after watching many reviews it has been my best natural hair purchase to date! I won’t ever use another comb, so glad I purchased both the mini and big rake!

  27. Elizabeth Romero

    I just received my set of combs yesterday, and they worked better than I expected. I felt compelled to write a review, these combs are AMAZING. I have waist length hair that tangles like there’s no tomorrow. I’m concerned with hair loss and want to keep my hair as happy and healthy as possible. After trying these combs I KNOW my hair is in good hands, I had no hair come out in the shower or while my hair was damp or dry. Both of these combs glided through my tangled hair and I was surprised to hear no snapping and pulling of hair. I liked the fact that the mini magic star works just as well as the bigger comb. This set of combs was the best investment I ever made for my hair. I’ll be buying more of these and HIGHLY recommend them.

    I love this comb! It is really great in my hair and it is really easy to part my hair with it. I have 4b/4c hair. I bought the set because I wanted the jumbo rake for myself and the mini for my daughter. She has 3a/3b hair. I don’t think this is a good comb for her hair type as when I combed it it made her curls on the ends of her hair fizz.

  29. di williams

    I am able to detangle my natural aa hair while wet with no problems! Natural haired women should invest in these hair saving combs. No tenderheaded tears from these!

    I love these rakes and my daughter doesn’t fight having her hair detangled

    The Magic Star Rake Set is a must have if you have thick hair (natural coiled or kinky, relaxed, dreadlocks, etc.). I brought the 5660 and 5610 Magic Star and Magic Star Mini for my wife and she didn’t have a problem at all detangling her natural, kinky fro hair when it was wet like she’s had with other big teeth combs. It doesn’t fold, bend or break when trying to comb through wet hair and even when your hair is dry, it will glide through with ease *Peedi Crack voice*! I watched some other videos of some naturalistas using this type of comb and they were satisfied too.

  33. Tonia

    These combs are amazing. I have used these combs 3 times for de tangling and it has reduced breakage significantly. My hair texture is curly/coily.
    I would highly recommend this set to anyone who is trying to maintain length and reduce breakage to give them a try.

    Enjoy combing my hair with these rakes!

  36. Pat Wilson

    Finger detangling my hair caused hair breakage and didn’t do much for me. However, when I started using the Magic Rake comb I have less hair breakage and shedding. I’ve been able to grow my hair and to keep the strands from unnecessary breakage by using the Magic Rake mini and jumbo comb set. I truly love the products this company manufacture and have purchased several combs and brushes. No other combs touch my hair!

  37. DidiLV

    I tried finger detangling but felt like i was just yanking and pulling out my hair but not really detangling effectively. I had tried cheap wide tooth combs before but felt like they ripped out my hair too. After reading a lot of reviews, I decided to give these combs a try. These combs have truly changed the game. They guide through my hair easily, without snagging, and make quick work of detangling, and my “shedding” has noticeable decreased. I would highly recommend to my fellow curlfriends. For the record, I am natural with fine coily (mostly 4a, some 3c) strands.

    Great comb for combing after shampooing. I use it on my transitioning hair and my grandchildren use them on their hair.

  39. Suzie

    I have wavy medium fine hair and I can’t even tell I’m using this. It finger combs my tangles out and the mini smooths it out a little more for me. I loved this so much that I ordered 4 more combs & going to throw out all my other combs when I receive them. No seams is absolutely the best! It doesn’t rip or catch on seams like my other combs. I will never use any other comb again.

  40. Anonymous

    These combs work for detangling, and do not have seams, but they have sharp edges that are just as bad as the seam on a previous comb I owned (except there are two instead of one, since they are edges instead of a seam down the middle. If you have really short hair this won’t be an issue since the edges will never touch your hair, but I have long hair and am really disappointed with the huge price tag. They really tear up my hair and leave it with splits all along the shaft. Very uncool.

  41. M Donlin

    This is my second Hercules Sagemann comb purchase because I lost my mini magic star while traveling. These combs are definitely worth the investment. I couldn’t wait for my order after using standard widetooth combs after losing my mini.

  42. Alice Marie Graves

    I purchased the Magic Star Rake Set for my grandson. The order arrived promptly. The combs are great. One for home and the small comb for his backpack. His hair is very thick and he refuses to use any product for easy combing. These combs work perfect b/c the spacing is wide, and it is easier to comb his hair now. Thanks, Alice

  43. DCaia

    Nice to have a full comb for home and a small one for travel!
