Surely at some point you have wondered why there are different types of combs made with different materials. I mean it's just a damn comb right? Well yes and no. They all serve the same purpose but there is one that stands above them all... Wooden. I mean you may even score some extra points with the significant other for knowing why, so here are some facts :
1. Wooden combs distribute natural oils (Sebum) much more evenly from the scalp throughout the hair shaft so there is less buildup. Prevents blockage for any new hair trying to come in. This also is the case for use on beards.
2. Hair growth. Wooden combs unlike plastic/metal combs cause less abrasion on the scalp while creating better overall circulation when combing, helping keep the hair full and way less damaged.
3. STATIC IS BAD! Static plays a huge role in the overall styling as well as health of the hair and with a wooden comb it is eliminated. So when your trying to slick your hair you won't use as much product getting to all lay right and those baby hairs won't be reaching for heaven. Dapper is always better.
4. Wood does not conduct heat. This is huge for someone who blow dries their hair or uses any type of hot tool because the comb will not heat up like plastic or metal. Also helps keep the frizz down.
Hair on your head or face should be viewed as a blessing and should be treated as one so next time your at your barbershop you will know why many chose to use a good quality wooden comb. Also if you find the right one, for example the Apothecary Man Club Barber Comb you will not be disappointed with your investment and will live on with you for generations. As always... Cheers.
