Purchase: I bought the Griffith Braid Aid comb from Victoria Feeds - The Horse & Hound in Lindsay, Ontario, Canada for around .75 cents Cdn with tax. This is one item that should be in every braiders tool kit.

Likes: It's a handy little comb that helps you section off 3 even chunks of mane to braid.. and the key word is 'even'. Uniformity in braids is important, and what every braider should strive for.

Dislikes: Be sure to look at each Braid Aid comb you buy and make sure there are no sharp edges. Sometimes with the way the plastic is cut, you'll end up with some excess plastic and a few sharp edges on the combs teeth. You can either skip over any sharper ones in the store, or if you accidentally buy one, just use a file (or scissors - whatever is handy) and carefully file or trim the excess plastic off. Also, depending on the type of braid I'm doing, I may use a comb width and a half to get the size of braid I need. The Braid Aid seems to be designed for those gorgeous (and time-consuming) teeny, weeny hunter braids.

Quality: A little, flat plastic comb with 4 evenly spaced teeth at the bottom and 2 finger holes at the top in the handle. Comes in a variety of colours though if you're braiding in a stall, you might want to pick up a bright colour in case it gets dropped. That'll save you some time rooting through those nice fluffy shavings you just put down!

Summary: A handy little tool that should be in every braiders kit. I usually keep 3 or 4 in my braiding box because they're so small that they can get misplaced easily. With them being so inexpensive though, there's no reason not to have a few.
