Whether you’re just past a 5 o’clock shadow or you’re well on your way to being cast in a Rip Van Winkle movie, there’s one thing you’ve certainly noticed if you have any interest in beards. People with the best beards seem to go crazy for wooden beard combs. Why is that?

Wood Resists Static

The purpose of combing a beard is to make it lay down, but a comb made of plastic or metal can have the opposite effect. While it is not a very strong conductor, plastic can conduct electricity. 

Static electricity, conducted by a plastic comb, can make your beard frizzy and wild looking when you’re training to smooth your hairs down. In the same way that static hurts if your pest of a so-called friend drags his socks across the floor and shocks you, static electricity can damage your hair follicles over time. 

Wood Is Durable

Especially if you don’t do it often enough, combing your beard is a feat that is not for the faint of heart. We hope you aren’t going full-WWE mode on your face each morning, but snags can get the best of us huffing and puffing and pulling and tugging. Plastic combs just don’t have the fortitude to handle a coarse tangled beard. Wooden combs can stand up to the challenge.

Wood Is Porous

Oil is the name of the game when it comes to retaining moisture in a beard. There are your natural oils, called sebum, that your body produces, and there are the oh-so luxurious beard oils that you add to the equation. Wooden beard combs have the added benefit of sucking up some of those oils in their porous surfaces. 

Each time you comb your beard with a wooden comb, you are reintroducing a nourishing mixture of oils. You can even intentionally infuse oil in your wooden beard comb by soaking it in your beard oil of choice. After its thoroughly soaked, let it dry out before you use it again. A well-oiled wooden beard comb will keep your beard with just the right amount of shine. 

Don’t just read about wooden beard combs. Use one for yourself! Our wooden beard combs are in stock now.
