Combing your hair with cow horn. Imagine that. A secret of people with good hair. And they've been doing it for centuries.

Animal horn works so well for combs because it's a natural material, and glides seamlessly through hair without producing static cling. If that isn't enough reason to drop that dollar store plastic job right in the bin, this might be: horn, unlike prickly plastic comb teeth or even brush bristles, spreads hair's natural oils across the scalp and nourishes, rather than abuses, the hair follicle.

This horn comb is made by the last family of comb makers in Germany, who have been in business since the 1800s. They've made combs out of bone, horn, tortoise shell and wood. When they tried out plastic for a jaunt, it just wasn't the same quality item, so the moulding machines were "pushed to the corner" and the comb cutting machines brought back. Every comb is individually inspected before it leaves the workshop to ensure its teeth have been worked smooth, rounded and free of fibers. This comb has two kinds of teeth - fine and coarse - so it can be flipped for different styling purposes. 

Use & Care

Use the comb for gentle smoothing and styling of fine/medium thick hair. To clean, rinse the comb with water but don't immerse in water and let it sit for a long time. Set it on a dry cloth away from surface edges. Horn is very strong, but if the comb is dropped it can break.

Production & Design

Four generations of comb makers cut the teeth of these combs with a 120-year-old machine from England, using South American cow horn. After each comb is cut, the teeth are mechanically cleaned to ensure very smooth, precise teeth. There is no wax or oil applied to finish the combs so the horn is as natural and fine as possible for the hair.

The company that's been making these horns since 1848 now operates on hydropower for electricity.
