For everyday combing of hair of any length, giving the hair a well cared for appearanceCleans the hair by removing lint, dust and broken hairs.Helps to transport protective oils from the scalp along the shaft of the hair, making the hair appear better conditioned with less grease near the roots.Helps to smooth the cuticles of the hair shaft down helping to protect the hair from tangling and dessication and sun damage.Gentle to hair - horn is composed as the same substance as hair - keratin, and with the same hardness of material, horn will not damage the shaft of the hair.Horn combs pull out significantly fewer hairs while combing compared to a plastic comb or hairbrush. This is partly due to the construction. Plastic combs are moulded and the inside edges of the tines of plastic combs contain rough edges of plastic which is harder than hair. This rough edges of plastic snag hairs and damages the protective cuticle (scale-like) coating on each hair.With horn combs, the tines are cut by saw and smoothed, leaving nothing to snag the hair.By stroking the scalp with the tines during each grooming session, the stimulation improves scalp circulation and supports healthy hair growth.Cleans the hair follicles, maintaining follicle health and supporting the healthy grow of the hair, again when the tines are taken over the scalp.Perfect for detangling slightly damp hair after washing and for helping to reduce frizzyness.Fantastic for relieving stress. Animals groom themselves to relieve psychological stress and after escaping from physical danger. Gently comb the entire scalp several times a day, or briefly throughout the day.Leaves a lovely tingly sensation on the scalp.Does not induce static build up (unlike plastic). This is because a horn comb has the same charge as the hair - two materials of the same type due not build up static charge when rubbed together and brought into contact. With reduced staatic, agin less hairs are pulled out while combing.

Choices of Horn CombWe have several types of horn comb:

The Triangular Cow Horn CombMade and designed by Natural Spa Supplies, our Triangular combs, can be used on almost any hair type. With long, strong, deep reaching tines, this comb glides through fine hair, medium, thick hair or wavy hair, reaching the scalp for that all important massage. Our new horn comb maker lives in Calcutta, India and is a second generation horn craftsman. Not only is his detailing exquisite, we are in awe of the beautiful figuring of the horn.

We have three main colour types:

Combs which are predominantly black;Those with figuring in blonde, white, brown, green, black, yellow.The rarer toffee coloured combs.

These triangular combs are about 13cm tall and 7.5cm at the widest point.Hair Parting Horn CombWhether you are wearing your hair up or down, your starting point is a neat parting.Most hair styles depend on three types of hair parting.

The straight centre or side partingThe diagonal parting andThe zig-zag or criss cross parting

Make them easy to achieve by using the tip of our Horn Hair Parting Comb!

I find it easiest, if I start the tip of the comb handle near the crown and draw it forward. As my hair grows in a slightly forward direction, it gives a cleaner line and I can get the parting right with the first attempt.The Long Cow Horn Comb with Normal Teeth SpacingThis comb is about 15cm long and 4cm deep. They are sturdy and will work on any hair length of fine or medium thickness. The teeth or tines have 'normal spacing.'The Long Cow Horn Comb with Widely Spaced TeethThis comb is about 15cm long and 4cm deep. The teeth or tines are more widely spaced compared to the comb above. These combs are best for long hair, medium to thick hair or even hair with light curls.The Bulls Horn Afro Comb or RakeThis comb is 8cm by 8cm. It has strong and deeply cut tines and it is ideal for combing curly hair and Afro hair.The Tiny Horn Comb for the Moustache, the Beard, the Pussy Cat, Babies and very Fine HairThese adorable little combs are small enough to comb the moustache and agile enough to groom the puddy cat or the baby's hair. At a diminutive 8.5cm length they are so charming that I wonder if they were made by the 'little people' of folklore. Saying that, one of these marvels of craftsmanship combed my fine hair and it slipped though with also zero friction!Moustache, Cat or Fine Hair Horn CombI have found that these little combs are extremely adept at catching cat fleas. If you have a pussy cat, please read my blog.De Flea Your Cat: Catch, Kill and Prevent Cat FleasOr watch this video showing the flea comb in use on my 19 year old cat.

Wooden CombThis small wooden comb is ideal for travelling with and for fine hair (where there is lots of it) or medium thickness hair. The comb is 8.5cm long and the tines are 2.5cm deep with 2mm spacing. It is made in Germany with sustainably sourced beech wood.This wooden comb is very versatile and is a good travelling companion.How to Use a Horn Comb for Combing the Hair

Start by combing the hair at the ends, using the comb to locate knots and the fingers to untangle the knots.Gradually work up the shaft of the hair, going around the head.When the hair is tangle free, use long strokes from the scalp to the end of the hair.Then take the comb against the scalp for the massage to improve the scalp circulation.Take you time and enjoy the experience!

How to Care for your Horn Comb

 A horn comb should be for life!The comb can be rinsed periodically in warm (not cold or hot) water and then dried straight away. I prefer to keep my comb dry at all times, and to clean the tines with a stiff nail brush.Do not allow contact with solvents, chemicals or hair dyes.If you do use the comb on damp hair, dry the comb afterwards.To restore the polished look to your comb, rub it vigorously with dry wood ashes using a chamois leather, or polish with a drop of oil.Do not leave the comb in the sunshine as it might warp.Store away from heat, humidity and direct sunlight.Protect from dogs and other animals - even herbivores will eat horn!When transporting the comb, protect the tines from damage.To protect the tines of the comb and your hair do not force the comb down the length of the hair nor drag the comb through knots. Use the comb to locate the knots and then untangle the knots gently with the fingers working from underneath the knot until the hair is free. Then comb through the free hair. Take your time!4 Afro Combs

Each comb is unique. They vary a bit  in size, contour, figuring and colouring. Most are dark horn, but we do get 'blonde' horn combs too. If you have a preference, it is best to email or call before placing the order so that we can send you the one you will love the most.The Ethics of using Horn Combs

 Made of cow horn, nature's own 'plastic'  prized for it strength, durability, and ability to take on different forms. Cow horn is only taken from domestic bull and cows after the end of their life. The horn is sourced from Nigeria where both male and female cows grow wonderful quality, dense horn. A Horn Comb will after a long use-life eventually biodegrade (apart from the archaeological combs found in 'special preservation conditions' referred to above!)Combing is a natural process, beneficial to health and mood.
