Fractal Comb

Teeth with teeth
  (+9, -3)
(+9, -3)

A comb with extra teeth-spikes sticking out of the first set of teeth-spikesm at a slight angle, with teeth sticking out of them, and so on.

Maximum hair straightening.

See link for my attempt at illustrating.

ADDENDUM:

The idea is to have enough teeth that each hair is separated from each other hair.

       Would it straighten? Could you move it through hair at all?

       If it is truly fractal, it will be a comb with poorly-shaped rough teeth. Which would pull hair and hurt like crazy. Which might work for combing a shedding dog, although we have tools for that already.   

       I'd fishbone it for being non-workable and non-buildable, but maybe you mean it to be exactly what you illustrated. Which is just a funny-designed comb with the problem that Nwizad points out. Wait, it says, "And so on." I'm fishboning.   

       By the way, people used to use fishbones as combs. Supposedly. Have one.

       Feathers are built like this. but each barbule is spiraled.

       Ow.

       You'd probably have to use a conventional comb before using this one. Other than that, I like.   

       You could even put the conventional comb opposite this one: use one side, flip it over and go through with the fine-toothed comb.
