- No Static
Static electricity caused by rubbing your hair with a metal or plastic comb, makes your hair stiff and frizzy. It is believed that it also causes a loss of energy to the brain. Hair charged with static is very brittle and highly susceptible to damage due to breakage or exposure to chemicals. Using a well rounded wooden comb helps prevent static and promotes healthy hair.
- Encourages Hair Growth
The scalp contains a majority of blood vessels which provide nutrients that help hair grow. However majority of these vessels are present at the back of the head in an area known as the occipital region. This is the part of the scalp that provides your hair with fresh blood supply and all the necessary nutrition. Combing hair stimulates the scalp due to the movement and improves blood circulation. When circulation is enhanced, the scalp receives more nutrients which help the hair grow faster, longer and healthier.
- Balances Internal Health
As per ancient beliefs and studies, the head is perceived to be the point where all the internal energy converges. According to the study of chakras, this is where energy can turn good or bad and can in turn affect overall health. The head is where all the medians of the body come together, and combing it regularly can maintain the balance of internal and external energies which lead to good health and protection against stress, mental health issue and other internal problems.
- Removes Tiredness and Fatigue
Combing your scalp with strong and long movements from the front of the scalp to the back, and then from side to side is a technique that can remove tiredness from the body and mind. This massaging action using a comb helps to re energize the body and calm the mind. Hence it is recommended that you comb your hair 100 times before bed so that you can sleep better
- Nourishes the Hair
The scalp produces some naturally occurring oils which hydrate and nourish the hair roots. But if this oil stays on the scalp it can attract dust and pollution making your hair look flat and lifeless. Instead, if you run a wooden comb along your scalp and through the length of hair, it helps to evenly distribute the oil without making the hair look dull. The distribution of oil adds a lustrous shine and gives the nourishment to help hair grow.
- Removes Dirt and Foreign Particles
After a long day, unwanted particles in the air settle into the hair. Regular accumulation of dirt and pollutants can increase the oil secretion and the residue can also lead to dandruff and damaged hair. Using a wooden comb helps to remove the settled particles and open up the pores allowing the scalp to breathe. It removes product and oil build up which can make your hair look lifeless due to increasing dandruff.
When using wooden combs, remember to clean them thoroughly and regularly to keep them in the best possible condition to treat your hair. Use it daily and brush often to keep your hair looking smooth, shiny, long and lustrous.
