Why Use A Wooden Comb: Top 6 Hair Benefits

why use wooden comb

I use a wooden comb for my hair. A must have for me!

A few days back, I lost my wood comb and had to use a plastic one. And my hair didn’t really like it. It was static-ky afterwards. And since I am used to the feel of wood on my scalp, the plastic comb kinda felt artificial.

Next day I ordered 3 different varieties of wood comb – some comb indulgence 🙂

But it’s not just no static or good feel of wood comb, there are many more reasons to use a wood comb.

Here’s why you should use a wood comb…

Top 6 Hair Benefits of Wooden Comb

  1. The feel of wood on your scalp is amazing. It sort of gives you a mini scalp massage when you use it. This helps to increase the blood flow to the scalp – bringing lovely nutrients to the hair roots.
  2. No static either!
  3. The natural wooden fibers work great to condition your hair. As you comb, the natural oils from your scalp coat your hair shaft all the way down to the ends.
  4. Wide-tooth wooden combs don’t tend to pull or break the hair. And in my opinion combs are a better option than brushes, especially if you have curly hair. They glide through smoothly and make detangling so much easier. Comb your hair in sections that way it’s easier to undo the tangles.
  5. It may also help with dandruff. If your dandruff is due to dry scalp, regular massage with a wooden comb will normalise the oil production and eliminate dandruff.
  6. It also seems to add body and bounce to your hair.

I can sit for hours and comb my hair… it feels so nice and relaxing.

How to Keep it Clean?

Like any other combs, wooden combs too must be kept clean so you don’t transfer the grease back into your hair.

Every time you wash your hair, take your comb along with you and give it a wash as well. You can use some soap and warm water to clean it. If it’s greasy or dirty, use an old toothbrush to scrub it gently.

Where to Buy?

You can find the wooden combs in stores, but they are much cheaper to buy online. Here are some good ones that I found:

Wood comb (wide-tooth): for all hair types

Wavy handle comb: for long/thick hair

Fine-tooth wood comb: for straight/ wavy hair

Wooden bristle hair Brush: for straight/ wavy hair, offers good massage effect
