This 2 prong hairclaw was carved from Myrtle hardwood from Oregon. It is about 6" long and works great for most hair types. You can also use this as a shawl closure! 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! This is the exact hair fork you will receive! I treat all of my wooden hair forks with mineral oil..... i recommend rubbing mineral oil (or an oil of your choice) on this claw once every 3 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.
