Hook Me Up provides scratching relief for those with weaves

Many women weren’t born with the luscious locks of, say, a Farah Fawcett type. As such, there are many options for taming that do’ including braiding, chemical straightening, wigs and the ever-popular weave. A weave, for those who don’t know, is when the original hair is tightly braided and pieces of fake hair are woven through these braids to create a longer, straighter look. Weaves look great, but can be itchy, somewhat painful, and hard to remove without professional help.

The Hook Me Up is a tool for those women who sport a weave. On one end is a small hook, slightly resembling a crochet hook. With this end, women can undo their weave on their own and remove the thread holding everything together. It also features a razor inside of the hook that can cut through thread if need be. Removing the hook unveils a small straight metal rod. This can be used to scratch underneath the weave without damaging the quality of the hairstyle.

The other side of this little tool is a two-pronged fork. This is for the knot starting each weaved row, which, according to the campaign, is the tightest and most difficult knot to undo. By wiggling the fork in there, it becomes much easier to undo the knot.

For the scores of women with weaves, this little tool is just the thing. It’s small and completely portable. Not to mention that it provides relief for the common itching problem that goes along with weaves. One can be had by backers for a donation of $150 for estimated delivery in July 2015. Hook Me Up is hoping to raise $13,500 on Kickstarter by mid-February.
