How to Mend a Plastic Comb

Introduction: How to Mend a Plastic Comb

This instructable goes through the steps needed to repair a broken comb.

You will need:

- strong glue such as gorilla glue

- tooth picks

- pen

- scissors

- Q-tip

- broken Comb

Step 1: Collect Your Materials

Find all of your materials. I suggest working on a piece of paper as the glue can get messy.

Step 2: Prepare the Toothpicks

Select the same amount of toothpicks as the broken bristles. Line them up with the comb height and use the pen to mark where they should end. Then, holding them in one hand, use the scissors to cut off the remaining part of the toothpicks. I suggest throwing the leftover parts out to not mix them up with the pieces you will use.

Step 3: Attach the New Bristles

Using a Q-tip, dab a little glue onto the surface above the missing bristles and lay the new bristles on the brush. For the best repair job, try to align each bristle straight and with the same spacing as the originals.

Step 4: Use

Allow your comb to set for 24hrs before combing your hair. This process can be repeated as more bristles break.
