Afro-picks are a major part of black hair-care history. Gaining their fame in the 1970s, soul sistas and brothas used the picks to match the groovy style of the era, maintain their perfectly round afro’s and as a symbol to represent the black power movement.
Although hairstyles have changed over the years from fro’s, to braids, to weaves, and press-and-curls, the Afro-pick has continued to evolve and make its way into every era.
I recently came across a company by the name of “MirrorPick” that has managed to take our favorite hair-care tool, and take it to the next level!
The MirrorPick is a unique, patented product combining a hair pick and handheld mirror in one and comes in seven colors: black, yellow, blue, green, purple, teal and red. We’re actually new to the hair product industry, but we noticed that several friends of ours — both girls and guys — were using separate products to comb their hair and then look at themselves (e.g., guys using a pick and then their phones as a mirror and girls using a compact mirror along with the comb), and so we figured why not just design both functions into one product! We debuted the MirrorPick at the Taliah Waajid hair show in Atlanta last month, and we’ve been extremely grateful for all the positive feedback on the product both down there and in the wake of the event.
What are your thoughts on the MirrorPick? Is this a product that you need to add to your hair-care collection?
