Sullivan’s Teflon Comb

Get more leg hair perfection with Sullivan’s NEW Teflon Combs. The NEW show day comb for leg grooming. Teflon is a solid polymer that is considered to be one of the world’s most slippery and
water resistant substances. It has one of the lowest measured coefficients of friction of any compound. For our application, it creates a baked-on surface to the comb teeth for reduced friction and a non-stick lubricant that allows the comb to glide through the hair easier, especially with a sticky substance like  adhesives.
