First types were very plain, but combs have become stylish and beautiful from the times of Ancient Greece. Those times combs can be freely believed to be pieces of art.
Choosing a comb
We have to understand the types and purposes of the combs to choose a right one
Variety of materials and models of combs is so great that you may buy such a comb which will definitely spoil your hair if you don’t have certain knowledge.
The most plain and necessary comb is crest. A modern crest can have a shape of a plain comb but scallops are more big and smooth, and the distance between them is longer. Such a comb is an irreplaceable assistant in application of the hair mask or the hair conditioner, in unraveling or combing wet hair.
The bigger distance between the scallops – the more suitable the comb is for those who have got curly hair. It will comb curls and locks carefully without breaking it.
A wooden crest can be an excellent tool for antistatic action. But it is not recommended for combing wet hair as it can become unusable too fast. Modern material that has become a good alternative to wood is silicone. Hair easily glides over it and is untangled without damage.
The favorite comb of many people is massaging. Even those who have long hair like it because it combs hair carefully, without damaging locks, and untangles hairs easily. It doesn’t only comb the hair perfectly but also gently massages the scalp. This massage activates the bloodstream, hair follicles get better nutrition and start growing faster and stronger.
Massaging brushes can be different. The only difference is the material of the scallops. It can be made of silicone, plastic, metal or pig bristles. Natural bristles do not untangle the hair because of its softness, but it removes static perfectly and combs the skin fat from the hair roots for the entire length. Also, in a moderate amount skin fat protects the hair from excessive drying. Be careful! This option is suitable only for those who have normal or dry hair. If your scalp is too oily, then this option does not for you.
Brashing is a round brush for styling. It is used with a hair dryer. Using it you can easily give the hair volume, spin strands or, conversely, straighten curly hair. Bristles of such brushes are made of plastic or natural materials.
Modern types of brashings are covered with ceramics and equipped with a thermometer. This is done so that you can style your hair safely without overdrying it.
The most multifunctional one is the skeletal comb. It is used for styling as warm air is easily passed through its openings. The rounded tips of the bristles do not damage the scalp and hair. Such semi-circular combs fit the best for short hair. Those who have got long hair do not like such combs as it can get tangled in the hair.
Modern combs may surprise. For example, it can be a place for storing hairpins.
Other manufacturers have taken care of making it easier for you to clean the comb.
It is necessary to care for a hairbrush if you want it to serve to you for long and well, without spoiling hair. How to care for a comb? It’s very simple. It must be washed. Before washing a comb you need to remove all the hair from it. Then put it into a jar or a deep bowl with warm water. Add some shampoo to water. It is better to use shampoo for oily hair for this purpose. Rinse the brush right in the jar cleaning its bristles or scallops. Now you can wash off the sebum, dust and other dirt under running water. Dry it properly before using the comb again. If your hair is normal and dry then you can wash the comb once or twice a week. Those who have got oily hair need to clean their hair tools every day.
Why do you have to wash the comb? The dust, skin oil, scales of old skin and dirt from the hair remain on the comb. This environment is favorable for the development of different microorganisms that cause fungus and other skin diseases.
