Choosing a hair comb
We choose all our hair care products very carefully, reading through the ingredient list and searching reviews to find out which ones will really work. But for buying the most basic hair care tool; the comb, we hardly put any effort and thought. Do you know just like a hair care product that doesn't suit your hair can hamper your hair growth, picking up the wrong comb can also damage your hair?
Why do we need to comb our hair?
- Combing stimulates the scalp and hair follicles, improves blood circulation and thus promotes hair growth.
- Combing activates the sebaceous gland, which produces the scalp’s natural oil-sebum and coats the hair strands evenly with sebum, providing a natural shine.
- Combing detangles and exfoliates your scalp to remove dirt and dead skin that may clog the pores of the scalp.
Why use wooden combs ?
Most of us use plastic combs- they are easily available and cheap. However, plastic combs cause static and frizz, that leads to hair breakage. Plastics are also bad for the environment and the search for a more sustainable option ended in wooden combs that are both environment friendly, and good for the hair.
•Unlike their plastic and metal brethren, wooden combs help to retain and evenly distribute the natural oils through the length of hair adding a lustrous shine, smoothness and nourishment for better hair growth. The natural fibers in the wood gently condition your hair as you comb. •When rubbed against hair plastic combs develop negative charge, while hair acquires positive charge, causing frizz and static. This also causes dryness and hair breakage. Wooden combs are poor conductors of heat and so protect your hair free from static damage. •Plastic combs are not biodegradable, break easily and have detrimental effects on the environment, when we throw them away. Wooden combs are a great alternative, as they are sustainable, eco friendly and biodegradable. Wooden combs are also hypoallergenic, as they contain natural elements.
Why did we choose neem wood?
Neem tree has been used medicinally for over 4000 years and is described in Ayurvedic texts as “sarvaroga nivarini” or the universal healer of all ailments. Neem has the active ingredient; Nimbidin, that reduces inflammation and scalp irritation. It also has high levels of Vitamin E, that helps in nourishing the scalp and strength ening your mane. Neem is easily found all over the Indian subcontinent, grows fast and is drought resistant.
Sri Dhanvanthari Madom believes in making environmentally conscious choices. We want to provide you with the most natural, eco-friendly and health conscious products, whilst also providing a small yet vital support to a more sustainable and regenerative future.
