Why is a Wooden Comb a Must Have For Your Beard Grooming Routine?

All beards can benefit from using a wooden beard comb

A natural wooden beard comb is a must, and it is one of the first tools that you should use to comb and maintain your beard. It makes beard grooming and oil application easy to ensure the best results.

Why put up with beard itch and dandruff when you don't have to? A wooden comb allows you to easily and effectively apply your beard oil ensuring the best results. This wood comb overview, will walk you through why a wooden beard comb is considered part of the "best beard grooming practices". How using a wooden beard comb will help reduce the application time required and maximize the benefits of using organic beard & pre-shave oils. Lastly, everyone knows how dangerous plastic are for the environment, by choosing a wooden comb you are actively making a difference.

Reason #1

Using a Wooden Comb to Apply Organic Beard Oil Makes it Easy & Ensures You Get the Best Results...

Using proper beard grooming tools makes maintaining your beard easier and faster. Grooming tools like a wooden beard comb don't create static electricity, significantly reducing unwanted frizzy beard hair and are important for helping to distribute the organic beard oil evenly throughout your beard and down into the roots. There are two main types of wooden comb options available; a fine tooth wood beard comb, for new to established medium length beards, and a wide tooth beard comb, for established longer (3"+) beards. No matter your beard size and style, wooden beard combs provide huge benefits and most importantly, make it easy to get great results from regular beard grooming.

Reason #2

Wood Combs Do Not Cause Static Electricity or Cause Additional Damage/Breakage To Your Beard Hair & Skin...

You probably never thought about how much damage a plastic or metal comb can do to your beard. Having the right beard grooming tools makes a big difference. Plastic combs create static energy, which will not only damage your beard hair, but make your beard look really frizzy and out of control. Further, plastic and metal combs tend to generally have harder, sharper edges on their teeth, which can easily pull out, break, and damage your beard hair. Also plastic & metal combs can scratch and irritate your skin more easily. Wood beard combs have softer edges on their teeth that become "seasoned" over time and use. A "seasoned" wooden beard comb is easy on your beard hair, tough on knots and tangles, and great for you and the environment.

Reason #3

Regular Grooming Using a Wood Comb Can Help Promote Beard Growth & Avoid Common Concerns...

Regular grooming with a wood comb is the key for the best results for both growing and maintaining your beard. It also helps to ensure the beard oil is evenly distributed to avoid common concerns, like beard itch and embarrassing dandruff. By making beard grooming a regular and essential part of your routine, it will make a big difference in the growth and strength of your beard as well as the health of your skin underneath. Using a wooden comb is softer and more gentle on your beard hair and makes grooming quick and easy. Using beard oil regularly ensures your skin and beard get the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids they need to keep looking and feeling healthy.

Choosing Real Wooden Comb is Better and Heathier for you to use & for the environment you live in; it's just that simple.

We think wooden combs are cool because they are 100% Bio-degradable and a environmentally friendly! There, we said it! Aside from all the other obvious advantages, there is something comforting about grooming your beard with a quality-crafted wooden comb.

  • Start low and work your way higher, working the oil into your beard. Start by your neck and work your way towards your chin. This will ensure beard oil is evenly distributed, giving your beard a full and fluffy look.
  • After separating the hairs and giving your beard the Big City Beard's organic beard oil treatment, comb your beard downwards and into your preferred style. Don't forget your moustache.
