This 3 prong hairclaw was carved from a resin infused birch laminate and is water resistant. It is about 6" long and works great for most hair types. This is a "made to order" claw and if you have any special requests, please make certain to add into the notes during checkout. You can also use this as a shawl closure and a comb! All of my hairforks have slight curves to ensure that it will not slide out at those inopportune moments. ........ like when your cleaning your toilet! I treat all of my wooden hair forks with mineral oil.....i would recommend rubbing mineral oil (or an oil of your choice) on this claw once every 6 months or whenever it looks dry. I make all of my hair forks myself - no sweatshops, no manufacturing companies, no employees, no 3-d printers and absolutely no stress!!! Its the clean energy of the Idaho Panhandle Sun that powers all of my tools at my off-grid solar powered home.
