Wood comb

Our wood combs are neither treated with oil nor with wax. This has the advantage for you that your comb can take in the hair fat and even when you use it for wet hair it stays smooth.
Since we only use selected fine-pored hard wood, it is enough to put the wood comb on a dry towel after combing wet hair or cleaning it with water and soap.

The selected wood is hard and dense that it hardly assimilates humidity.

Regular oiling for care is not needed for this kind of comb. It is excited to absorb the hair fat directly from your scalp.

Horn comb

Please oil your horn comb once or twice a year.
You can also use excessive body lotion or body oil for care taking.

Horn and hair exist of keratin. Keratin is a protein.

Have you ever cracked an egg and some of the egg white dropped on to the table which wasn’t cleaned right away? Egg white firms quickly, because of bound water evaporates.
Exactly this process can happen to horn.

Our hair is protected by our endogenous sebum that is produced in sebaceous glands and emitted there.

The horn comb is missing that support system. Therefore, please oil it once or twice a year.
That’s how the comb will stay a loyal companion for a very long time.
When required you can clean your comb with lukewarm water and a mild soap or a mild shampoo. During the cleaning hold your comb under running water and avoid leaving it in water. Afterwards, dry it with a towel and when needed oil it.

Brush with wild boar bristles

After each brushing we recommend removing the hair with a narrow-teethed comb and then to knock off all skin scales.
Since the brush with wild boar bristles absorbs hair fat quite well and emits hair in dry circumstances, the brush can end up greatly overloaded. The hair just gets too heavy for the brush.
This can happen every 3 to 4 weeks or 3 to 4 months.
Please clean the brush with wild boar bristles with lukewarm water and a mild shampoo (ideally free from any minerals) and let it dry on a towel with the bristles looking down.
The next time you brush your hair will be maintained healthy automatically using your own hair fat.

Brush with wooden pegs

Before the cleaning with lukewarm water and a mild soap, please remove the hair out of your brush. The easiest way to do so is to grab the hair from the side and pull them out all in one go.
While you clean your brush with lukewarm water and a mild soap, you can also take a old toothbrush as aid. With that you can remove sebum and dust from the wooden pegs and natural rubber pillow.
Please refrain from soaking the brush in water or from using a brush cleaner made from metal to avoid damaging the brush.
To dry please put the brush down with the wooden pegs looking down.
