American Sign Language:  "comb"

Ah yes, don't be jealous, but this is one little chore I do not have to worry about.  

The sign for comb uses a "claw hand" to make a few combing movements at the side of your head.


Question: Is there a difference between the sign for "a comb" (noun) vs "to comb" (verb)? 
Answer:  In general the noun form tends to use two small quick movements and the verb form uses a single larger movement. The concept of "combing" is a process and will use a couple of larger movements.
