A Calypso Comb combines a Burmese Blackwood handle with Paulownia “Princess Tree” wood teeth. The absorbent nature of the Paulownia teeth means that it functions most closely to a boar bristle brush but with some major improvements. Calypso’s Combs penetrate deeply throughout the hair, picking up oils where they are in excess and redistributing them to the areas where they are needed most. Unlike with boar bristle brushes, our combs spread the oils throughout all of your hair and not just on the surface. The comb’s rigid teeth are specifically contoured to allow the comb to reach the base of the hair with each stroke creating smoother, silkier hair.
