It's worth investing in the best hair comb that gives maximum benefits to your hair, while creating a tidy look and naturally glowing, healthy hair.
In this article, we are looking at the most popular natural hair combs professionally crafted to the highest quality standards.
First of all, let's define what is a natural hair comb and why is it good for your hair?
Natural hair combs are made of natural materials, such as wood, rubber or horn. They are antistatic and therefore work best on natural hair prone to frizz. However, not all natural combs are the same.
While wood combs are lightweight and easily replaceable, they are abundant in tiny burrs that catch on hair. Even if the wooden comb is highly polished, it is not porous free because of the nature of any wood. Therefore, over time the wooden threads become more pronounced and are likely to accumulate dirt giving an unpleasant environment for bacteria growth. Also, when the wooden veins start to peel off, the wooden comb becomes less suitable for everyday use because the teeth catch or pull hair. This is especially true when you comb wet hair. If your comb is full of pieces that stick out from the core, rest assured you are doing a lot of long lasting damage to the hair.
Ox horn combs or buffalo horn combs are very strong, durable and antistatic. They have a similar structure to a human hair and glide perfectly by settling the static charge and gently removing the knots. However, horn combs are an animal byproduct, and therefore are not suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
If you want to avoid broken or damaged hair, then choose the best seamless hair combs, like those made of hard rubber (also called Ebonite). Rubber, a white latex sap, is produced by living rubber plants and makes a perfect natural material that is antistatic and flexible. Through hours of vulcanisation under extreme temperatures, rubber becomes super hard which gives extra durability and resistance to heat and most common chemicals known in the hairdressing practice. So when you buy a natural hard rubber hair comb, you are investing in the health of your hair and make it feel and look its best.
