Detangling combs and regular combs may look similar, but they serve different purposes.
A detangling comb is designed to gently work through knots and tangles in the hair without causing damage or breakage. Its widely spaced teeth are typically longer and more flexible than those of a regular comb.
On the other hand, a regular comb is meant for general styling and grooming, with closely spaced teeth that can smooth and shape hair.
While a regular comb may also help detangle hair to some extent, it's not as effective or gentle as a specialized detangling comb.
