A wooden beard comb can offer several health benefits for your facial hair. One great advantage is that overtime a wooden comb absorbs the oils from beard care products such as beard oil and beard balm. This helps the wood glide right through your whiskers. They also distribute beard oils more evenly. This helps to coat your beard hair from shaft all the way to tip, something a plastic comb can’t do as effectively. The all-round coating helps with maintaining hair health and growth. And wooden beauty tools are also anti-static!
Plastic beard combs won’t absorb the natural oils common in beard products or your beard. When you use an untreated wooden comb, over time, it absorbs the oil to give your beard a rustic, natural, chemical-free coating. As the comb is moved across the beard, it also transfers the healthy sebum and natural oils from the roots of the hair to the shafts, individually coating each strand. This supplies these essential nutrients to every part of the hair strand, thus boosting the blood flow to your skin.
A wooden comb is significantly better than plastic in that it doesn’t snag and pull out hairs. As noted earlier, natural wood is anti-static and when your comb is designed with wide teeth, it greatly reduces snagging which damages beard hairs. Because wood doesn’t create static electricity like plastic combs, your beard is not likely to snap or frizz up.
Because wood is soft, it gently massages the skin on the face. This stimulates your hair follicles, boosting the flow of blood to the area thus stimulating hair growth. Plastic combs tend to be harsh on the delicate skin under your beard, causing irritation. Blood contains vital nutrients and, therefore, the more it flows to your follicle, the healthier, shiner, and thicker your beard will be.
