These are original vintage 1970’s "Mr. Afro Rake" hair combs, in the original paper/plastic packaging. Combs are nylon/plastic and made by Mr. "G" Products Company in Charlotte, North Carolina.

About: Afros and black natural hair was not always embraced en masse by the black community. Afros were popularized during the Black Is Beautiful/Civil Rights Movement, a time when self-love was articulated as a form of political resistance against white supremacy. The Black American commercial market was inundated with products that allowed Black folks to use beauty/aesthetics as a site of radical politics - including afropicks adorned with picks and peace symbols, hair products, advertisements and popular culture messaging.
