It’s safe to say that not many people with short hair worry about what type of comb they use. In fact, we would be willing to bet that most people don’t even know that combs can be scented and unscented. Wooden combs, on the other hand, are more exposed and known to the public. What we have here are two handmade combs: one is made from Sandalwood and is scented, and the other is made of regular wood and is unscented. Both are made by SRANNnaturals and can be ordered from Thailand.
Why does it matter? If the shape of the comb is agreeable, what difference does it make if it’s wooden? Well, there are certain benefits to wooden combs. They help with natural conditioning of your hair. They evenly distribute your hair’s natural oils down the hair shaft. They are both gentle and durable. This, combined with their width, makes them less likely to break your hair when you comb it. Since they are made of wood, they don’t conduct electricity so they can’t produce static or snap your hair. Wooden combs are also really good for long hair, because of the aforementioned even distribution of natural oils. It will make your hair shiny, and give you the perfect opportunity to try that “Gilda hair flip.”
If you make an effort to clean them regularly, they will last for a very long time. Just remember, they are to be cleaned with natural oils and not water.
