Afro Metal Hair Picks

Do you struggle with fiddly root clips, or just need something quick and easy to slide in and out?
Afro metal hair picks are the answer for you. Afro metal hair picks are used to create lift and volume at the roots as an alternative option to root clips or mini claw clips.
Simply slide 2 combs along the scalp toward each other, lift the hair and slide prongs between each other to lock into place.

How to use afro metal hair picks
There are a couple of ways to use Afro metal hair picks.

  1.  Before drying and applying styling products, gently run combs along the scalp and lift the hair. Then, slide and lock the combs into place. Dry the hair moving and replace the combes in areas of the head that you desire more lift.
  2. Afro metal hair hair picks can also used to “pick the curls”. Once the hair is fully dry, tip your head upside down and gently pick from the roots using the metal pick. This may create a little bit of frizz on your roots. However, this results in more volume.

Tip- Don’t comb your hair from roots to ends when picking your curls. Only comb from the roots about 2 to 3 centimetres.
