Who Invented The Hair Pick?

A bit of knowledge for you about the first invented comb design (the Pick) and the significants of the Kakakiki KombBrush as an upgrade to that design which is more then 11,000 years old.

An article by Angela M. H. Scheuster in the Archaeology, Volume 52 #4 July/August 1999 writes that, archaeologists have found the remains of the Nubian (Black) civilization, one of Africa’s most dynamic cultures. Nubia flourished during the Old Kingdom (ca. 2700-2200 B. C.), becoming the conduit through which exotic African goods - ebony, ivory, incense, leopard skins, and ostrich feathers - reached the Mediterranean world.

The Nubia Museum in Africa (Egypt) is fitting tribute to this African civilization. Arranged chronologically under headings such as “Birth of Culture in the Nile Valley and the Age of Pyramids”. The museum’s artifacts trace the development of Nubian (Black) civilization from its beginnings more than 11,000 years ago to the present. The museum offers compelling proof that the African pick comb is more than 11,000 years old. Proof again that someone like myself who grew up in West Oakland and graduated from McClymonds High school can invent, design, patent, trademark, manufacture a hair product (The Kakakiki KombBrush) that no one has bothered to consider upgrading in 11,000 years is no doubt a good example of OAKLAND IS MOVING FORWARD.
There is no excuse for you not to purchase a Kakakiki KombBrush. Every Black person should have a comb/brush that took the time to say “I know Black textured hair is not BAD hair, but the hair tool being used are a BAD design for the use on Black textured hair”. You see, Black people were taught in the slavery system that something was wrong (BAD) with our hair, instead of someone just saying “OH” I guess we are just using the wrong hair tool design for that textured hair.

Kakakiki KombBrush Speaks to Students

The Kakakiki KombBrush received a letter from a retired schoolteacher living in Grand Hills CA, but she grew up in Oakland. She is now teaching Afro American History at the school she retired from. In her class format is a section on inventions. She stated that she would like to share the Kakakiki KombBrush with her class. She also asked “If you have time we would like for you to send our students some words of wisdom and encouragement. We have 28 students in our class and we want them to know that a race without a history is lost and we want them to learn our history so they can pass it on”. Well here is Kakakiki KombBrush words of wisdom and encouragement to the class and also to Oakland and the Bay school students, Parents, Teachers, Social Workers, Preachers, etc.
Let’s begin a movement which request that in every book in our schools that refer to us as SLAVES, SLAVERY be changed to read “SLAVE SYSTEM”. How can you expect a child to learn with confidence when you start them off in school describing them to all of the other students with a word that is completely untrue to the historical facts? Our forefathers were not SLAVES but they were placed in a SLAVE SYSTEM. The dictionary describes the word SLAVE, “one who is submissive or subject to a specified person or influence.” It also describes the word SYSTEM, “is a set of principles rules, procedures, laws or the like.” Now you tell me if my ancestors here in America were SLAVES or were they in a SLAVE SYSTEM. So Black students and all other students who understand what Kakakiki KombBrush is saying here can stand up and ask your school to make the changes to the books. Let the Kakakiki KombBrush be your symbol for Knowledge and Positive Speak. OAKLAND IS MOVING FORWARD. Pass this information on to others, lets start something.

Kakakiki KombBrush & The Hip-Hop Community

By Ed Howard
The Kakakiki KombBrush would like to say, “Praise is do to the Hip-Hop community. You are the only group in the Black community that is developing an industry. You are in every major city and town in America. Not only are you creating your music, you are also creating clothing styles, clothing companies, perfumes, cosmetics, movies, TV shows, record labels, writers, copy rights, diamond companies, etc. No other Black group in America is producing as many jobs as you are. Keep your Hip-Hop attitude - it will help you stay strong while you are developing. Don’t listen to the negative speak.
Haven’t you noticed that every time a brother starts to make some money the negative speak comes out “Every one can’t be a basketball player”, “That Hip-Hop music is bad”, That Kakakiki KombBrush looks funny”. When I was a young man people would say, “James Brown music is bad music”, when Elvis Pressley started copying James Brown’s and made all the money those same people praised Elvis Pressley. Don’t give others a chance to take from you that which you created. The Kakakiki KombBrush is created for Black textured hair (See Advertisement on this page) so don’t let some other people sell it to you and make all the money because you didn’t buy it when it was Black owned. Hip-Hop community keep doing what you are doing and you will develop and your kids will be even better because you will be able to pass on REAL GAME to them. OAKLAND IS MOVING FORWARD.

Did you ever think about where the term bad, nappy hair comes from and why it has been applied to our hair more than others? You remember statements that people made like “that nappy head boy or girl”, “you sure have bad hair”. You know there was no bad hair before the American slave system was created. I don’t think we were allowed to bring any hair grooming tools with us on the slave system ships. So when we got here the slave system master let us use his comb on our hair. Can’t you imagine what it was like back then, no oils, moisturizers, hair conditioners, etc, just our hair and the European comb? When the slave system master saw how we were struggling so hard with his comb he began to say, “you sure have some bad hair” or “look at that kinky, nappy hair”. They never said they should come up with some other comb/brush design that would work better on our hair then their comb. Well the sad part is that from that time to the present we didn’t think about it either. That tells you a lot about what the slavery system can do to a people. It also tells you how important the Kakakiki KombBrush is. It is the only comb/brush in the world that is designed and patented specifically for Black textured hair today. We don’t need to wait on someone to raise us up we can do it ourselves. Just follow the example of the Kakakiki KombBrush instead of letting others tell us how bad we are just do positive things for each other. OAKLAND IS MOVING FORWARD. Order your Kakakiki KombBrush now. _
