America prides itself on being one of the most advanced nations in the world but it turns out there is one thing they did not have.. At least until now....
In an interview with American talk show host, Wendy Williams, actor, Deon Cole revealed one of his latest products, called the 'ez-scratch' invented to help American women scratch their hair easier when it is under a weave, wig or some braids.
Ez-scratch is a compact, discreet, soothing scalp scratcher for people with protective hairstyles, braids, locks & twist. Order yours today at https://t.co/0KpEvD06la or click the link in my bio!

The 'ez-scratch' is available online and retails for between $9.95 for one and $29.83 for a pack of 3 - which (at the current exchange rate) is between R135.27 and R405.81.
Any South African woman will tell you that we've had these around for years and they never cost anything more than R5. They have even come to be affectionately referred to as i'hlokoloza. Hlokoloza is a Zulu colloquialism for poke.
Anyone who has taken public transport can attest to seeing them securely tucked into the weave of a woman who is clearly tired of having to deal with the annoyance of an itchy scalp.
Damn America, what else are you missing out on?
