DO YOU REALLY NEED A WOOD COMB FOR YOUR HAIR AND SCALP?
YES! The use of a wooden comb is beneficial to your hair, scalp, and the environment. Plastics are out, and sustainable wood is in!
At Organic B, we’re always on the lookout for hair care products that are better for our hair, work to cure or prevent hair damage, and are also better for the environment.
Switching to a wooden comb and avoiding harsh detergents and chemicals on your hair, as well as avoiding heat styling, is a simple approach to start naturally healing your hair.
We thoroughly enjoyed switching to a wood comb and learnt a great deal from interacting with holistic hair stylists and digging deeper into the study. Using a wooden comb to untangle wet hair after a shower and comb hair using Wooden Comb to produce curls and style our hair has become a staple in our hair care regimen.
Here’s the research behind why wood combs are better and better for your hair:
Because plastic and metal combs and brushes have a positive electrical charge while hair has a negative electrical charge, hair is drawn to the comb, creating static and/or frizz. Static and frizz cause the hair to dry out and become brittle, not to mention the fact that it looks bad. In addition, unlike wood, plastic and low-quality metals are harmful to the environment and are not renewable. Because wooden combs do not carry electricity, they do not cause static damage to your hair.
WOODEN COMBS HAVE THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS:
1.GENTLE ON HAIR
Wooden combs, like your hair, skin, and scalp, are made of carbon. A wooden comb helps your hair lay down and gives it a smooth and shiny look since both hair and wood have a negative electrical charge. Furthermore, because wood is a natural substance, it is unlikely to irritate allergies or skin disorders that are aggravated by plastic and metal combs.
2.HAIR IS NATURALLY NOURISHED
Because natural oils from the scalp do not adhere to the metal or plastic of a conventional comb, they are more readily distributed throughout the whole hair strand with a wooden comb. It gives your hair the sheen and bounce of well-moisturized hair, making it seem less greasy and healthier.
3.IMPROVES SCALP HEALTH (BOOSTS BLOOD CIRCULATION)
A wooden comb, which is made of carbon, massages the scalp in a complimentary manner without hurting or scratching the skin. The softness of the wood appeals to the scalp, resulting in increased blood circulation and healthy oil production. Did you know our scalps have acupressure points as well? Even sensitive scalps like wood, and the gentle massage soothes nerves, clears the mind, and just feels nice! When the mind is at ease, the body is also at ease, both inwardly and outwardly. It all boils down to the mind-body relationship.
4.PROMOTES HAIR GROWTH
We comb with a wooden comb for extended periods of time because it feels so nice. The massaging motion causes the follicles to create more hair strands, resulting in increased hair growth and thicker hair.
5.TANGLES AND BREAKAGE ARE PREVENTED
Metal and plastic combs tangle hair towards the end of the stroke, but a wooden comb does not. Detangling is simpler with a wooden comb that glides easily over the scalp and through the hair, preventing breakage and split ends. You’re also placed there since you should never brush damp hair, just comb it.
6.DANDRUFF AND ITCHY SCALP CAN BE REDUCED BY USING WOODEN COMB.
Dandruff is caused by inflammation of the scalp. A wooden comb’s softer, rounded teeth won’t nick and cut the scalp or re-distribute the oils on the scalp and hair, reducing the risk of dandruff.
7.DUST AND FOREIGN PARTICLES ARE REMOVED
Dirt and other particles are swept away from the hair when you gently comb it with wood. Because of their strong static charge, metal and plastic combs attract dirt and disseminate it throughout the hair.
8.THE DURABILITY OF WOOD COMBS IS EXTREMELY HIGH.
Wooden combs are sturdy and long-lasting, and are frequently constructed of Neem or Rosewood, which is a renewable resource. The teeth are seldom broken, and if they are, they may be recycled .
9.APPROPRIATE FOR ALL HAIR TYPES
Wooden combs are like moms who care for your hair, regardless of your hair type. For all of the reasons stated above, they treat gently and promote overall hair health.
HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN A WOODEN COMB?
Clean your wooden comb by removing any hair from it after each use, and remember to put it on a dry surface or in a dry cupboard or drawer. Water may deteriorate the health of wood over time, and bathrooms are one of the most humid rooms in the house.
Try putting linseed, flaxseed, or coconut oil over your wood comb every now and then to maintain it in good shape. Let it sit for half an hour until the oil has sunk into the wood. Then wipe it down with a soft towel.
