【Comb ‧ production process】
Crafted with exquisite Indians traditional handicrafts.
Handcrafted in India. Momento Scalp Comb is individually hand-cut from one whole piece Argentine Green Sandalwood tree. (Each Momento Scalp Comb will be Slightly Different) This comb will gradually change from yellowish brown to dark when exposed to sunshine and air thus each comb you receive is special. Green Sandalwood may generate flocculent crystals on the surface if the comb is left in a humidity environment (like the bathroom), commonly known as "spinning", which can be removed with cloth.
The process starts with carefully selected precious woods, which are left to dry out completely over the course of several years. The wooden combs’ minimalist silhouette is sketched on the wood and cut out with a wire saw, then each tooth is polished by hand to achieve a smooth, rounded profile. Lastly, it's treated with linseed oil and carnauba wax to allow use on wet and dry hair.
Go simple with our earth-friendly and cruelty-free Momento Scalp Comb
Plastic and metal combs and brushes can cause static in your hair since they have a positive electrical charge and hair has a negative electrical charge which draws in hair to the comb causing static as well as frizz. Static and frizz permit the hair strand to dry out and get fragile, also it simply doesn’t look great. What’s more, plastic and low-quality metals are terrible for the earth and non sustainable, not at all like wood. Wooden combs can’t direct power, so they keep your hair liberated from static harm.Do you have damaged hair? Want healthy shine hair? A simple way to start repairing hair naturally is switching to a wooden comb, while trying to avoid harsh detergents and chemicals on your hair and skipping the heat to style. A wooden comb more easily distributes natural oils from the scalp throughout the entire hair strand because the oils are not sticking instead to the metal or plastic of a regular comb. It leaves your hair less greasy looking and healthier with the shine and bounce of nicely moisturized hair.
The finished wooden comb retains the wood’s natural colour, texture, and soothing aroma—a much-needed tool for our stressful times. Three to five minutes of gentle scalp massage using a wooden comb is recommended in the morning and before bed to invigorate, improve circulation, and relieve stressful tension in the body. So, wait no longer to give your hair some Earth-friendly TLC.
Each comb is parcelled in a silky pouch for carrying and storing the Momento Scalp Comb in your purse.
RULES OF SCALP COMBING THERAPHY
It is not advisable to do this therapy within two hours after meals.
Before you start, brush your hair with a regular comb to detangle it. The massage is meant to be very gentle, but we don’t want to pull on small tangles accidentally while massaging the head. You don’t need to wash your hair first. Just make sure it’s freshly brushed and detangled.
Before starting the scalp massage therapy, use your fingers to press the scalp around and feel which parts are particularly tight. It may be the spots that are prone to white hair and hair loss .
To reap all the amazing benefits of scalp massage, be mindful of your posture. Sit upright. Notice if you’re holding any tension in your shoulders or your face. Breath in slowly, and on the exhale, release that tension.
One-way combing, generally combing 8-10 times, with moderate to mild stroke;
You can stop after combing until there is painful spot, and you can only comb 2-3 more times at the most painful place.
After massaging scalp, be sure to drink plenty of water to replenish water. You can add a little salt in boiling water to quickly replenish some electrolytes. You can also drink watermelon or cucumber juice (natural chicken or vegetable broth soup).
It should be noted that our MOMENTO SCALP COMB cannot replace medical products and medicines. If you have severe head discomfort and other symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately~

Here are our simple steps to enjoying scalp massage at home:
Move the wood comb from the front to the back of the scalp along each of the five regions shown above. Repeat at least 20 times for each line.
Take care not to stop short of the back of your neck, since this area is filled with pressure points.
In the morning, we recommend using faster movements for an invigorating feeling that gets you ready for the day.
At night, try a slower soothing message to promote relaxation and sleep.
Pay attention to the indents and bumps in your scalp. Some might be more sensitive than others. Use a good amount of pressure, but remember that the massage isn’t supposed to be painful. Using your comb should do the job without scraping your scalp.
Make sure the comb remains in contact with the scalp to ensure an effective massage.
