Most people use a comb to fix their hair every day. But how do we decide what type of comb to use? Some people grab whatever is the cheapest at the store. Other people get whichever one is in the color they like, or looks the coolest on the shelf. This is hardly the best way to choose an object that is so important and valuable to our overall appearance, not to mention the long-term health of our hair.
Picking out a comb is a very important task. In fact, I am going to let you in on a little secret. Try to keep this between us. The best type of comb you can choose, is a wooden comb.
Why a wooden comb you might ask? That is a very good question, and I have many very good answers. There are many advantages to using wood on your hair.
Here are the 5 biggest advantages of using a wooden comb for your hair.
1. It is softer on your scalp.
You may not realize this but plastic and metal combs are very hard on your scalp This can cause bruising or scraping that you might not even be aware of. Wooden combs are much more gentle and can be a life-saver if you have a sensitive scalp. That is why you should give your head a break and use wood.
2. Wood does not produce static electricity.
It is a little known fact that static can cause damage to otherwise healthy hair. Since wood does not naturally conduct electricity it will not produce static. This eliminates the concern of damage when using wood.
3. Using wood can defend your hair from dying and prevent hair loss.
We are going to have to get a little scientific for a minute. All of our scalps contain something called sebum. This sebum is produced on your scalp making your hair greasy. The build up of sebum can block your hair follicles causing hair loss. A wooden comb distributes the sebum oil evenly across your scalp preventing the dreaded build up.
4. Prevent oil.
If you are lucky enough to have long hair using a wooden comb can also distribute the oil we mentioned above along the length of your hair. This gives your hair a shiny and healthy appearance.
5. Save money.
When using plastic you are very likely to break or bend the entire comb or teeth after a short period of time. This is not the case when using wood. When well maintained wood products can last for years saving you money and reducing the headache of having to go shopping for a replacement. Tip: Do not use water to clean a wooden comb. Use a natural oil. This will keep the wood clean and ensure that it will last for many years to come.
As you can see there are many advantages to using a wooden comb. The wood is soft, long lasting, and adept at evenly distributing your scalps natural oils helping to combat hair loss. With so many advantages of using wood why would you even consider using anything else?
