The head is made from very hard plastic while the “tail” is made from metal. It’s an awesome comb, definitely a essential that everyone needs. · The "tail" can be used to tuck stray hair under the wig, as well as make great parts. · It do a better job on unraveling the braid/twist stitch. Note: Please be super careful with that metal tip. Do keep it away from children. SHIPPING FEE: US & UK order Free Shipping for over $100 now!
