Features of wooden roller combs

1. Protects and cares for the hair

  • The wooden roller comb’s rounded surface and delicate tooth design make the combing of hair smoother and gentler, reducing hair pulling and damage. Compared to metal or plastic combs, wooden rollers are gentler, reducing static and tangles.
  • The wooden roller combs’ natural wood surface helps maintain the hair’s natural oil balance, preventing excessive dryness or greasiness. This oil retention gives hair more shine and bounces, effectively reducing dryness and frizz.
  • As wooden roller combs produce no static electricity, they cause less damage to the hair. Long-term use can reduce hair damage and breakage, keeping hair healthy and beautiful.

2. Craftsmanship and material

  • Wooden roller combs are made in various processes, including wood collection, drying, cutting, carving, and sanding. Among them, handmade wooden roller combs are usually more popular because they can better preserve the grain and characteristics of the wood and are carefully processed.
  • Selecting quality wood is the key to making wooden roller combs. Common high-quality woods include cherry, oak, walnut, mahogany, etc., which are beautiful and have anti-bacterial properties and durability, which are suitable for making wooden roller combs.
  • The craftsmanship and choice of material used to make wooden roller combs directly affect the quality and effectiveness of the product. Excellent craftsmanship and high-quality wood can make wooden roller combs more durable, beautiful, and comfortable, which can satisfy consumers’ needs and quality requirements for hair care tools.

There are three positions of the roller comb, namely horizontal inward, vertical backward, and diagonal, and the diagonal direction is divided into diagonal forward and diagonal backward. When in use, the roller comb is usually held in the left hand and the hair dryer in the right hand. When blowing, the arm should be opened as far as possible to facilitate the change of angle.

  3. When demonstrating with a head mold, stand in an I-step with the front and back feet parting the hair piece, the hair piece should be within the control of the roller comb, approximately 3/2 of the width of the comb.
  4. When blow-drying, the angle of the air blower and the roller comb should be kept at a low angle, following the flow of the hair to increase the temperature, and the air nozzle should be about 1~2 centimeter away from the roller comb. Position the hair piece vertically to smooth the hair, and keep the air blower following the swing of the roller comb to keep it vertical. Place the hair piece obliquely to smooth, the angle should be raised appropriately. When the roller comb is on top of the hair piece, it should be turned to the side of the hair piece to ensure that the roller comb is on top and the hair piece is on the bottom.
