A wooden comb has tremendous benefits for your hair, your scalp and the planet. Wood combs are safe for all ages and help combat tangles. Our combs are made of 100% bamboo wood which is strong, durable and very renewable.
Wooden combs are carbon based, just like your hair, skin and scalp so they are less likely to stimulate allergies or skin conditions than plastic and metal combs. And wood reduces frizz because it doesn’t conduct electricity so doesn’t cause static that causes the hair to flyaway, dry out and become brittle.
A wooden comb distributes natural oils from the scalp throughout the entire hair strand. Oils tend to stick to a metal or plastic comb. With wood, dirt and foreign particles are combed away, while the oils stay, leaving your hair less greasy looking and healthier, with the shine and bounce of nicely moisturized hair.
And because it feels so good, we often comb longer with wood, massaging the scalp and stimulating blood circulation, which allows the follicles to produce more hair strands, increasing hair growth and producing thicker hair over time. Plus, our scalps have a range of acupressure points allowing the massaging action to calm nerves and quiet the mind.
Using a wooden comb should become an essential part of your hair care routine, especially to detangle wet hair after a shower and to comb hair before using a CharlieCurl to create curls and style (you should never brush wet hair—only comb it—you are set there, too).
No matter what your hair type is, wooden combs are like mothers that care for your hair. They treat gently and support overall hair health for all the reasons mentioned above (and more).
