8. Why is a wooden comb better for beards? There is a reason many hairy gents' in the know use wooden combs: they're tough to snag and break beard hairs, are moisture-friendly, and will give you a shiny beard. Wooden combs absorb both natural oil from your skin and beard oil products. That keeps your beard moisturized from root to tip and conditions the comb. The wood can be seasoned, just like cast iron, so the comb will last and, like cast iron, takes on a patina that changes over time. We recommend wood comb for those who like functionality, craftsmanship, and sustainable materials.
Also, the wooden comb is better than plastic or metal because it's far less likely to damage your beard. This is because it has no edging, no teeth, and gaps. Instead, it's smooth and even, perfect for grooming your beard. There's no risk of snagging hair with a wooden comb, either. It's also an excellent choice for other hair types — like hair on your head.
