The pins are made of Satsuma Tsuge Boxwood and a different Boxwood is used for the handles. They are truly exquisite hair brushes... unlike a plastic or metal material which may cause static electricity, these wooden brushes are very gentle to the hair and scalp yet very effective to help maintain lustrous hair. Also, the round ended teeth (just like our brushes) are much gentler on your scalp than a sharp one. Handmade in Japan
HOW TO USE
Once a week, take a drop of our original pure camellia oil and warm in between hands then rub the oil onto the comb. Do not use soap and/or water to wash the comb and only use pure vegetable oil to prevent breakage of the products. If the comb needs to be deep cleaned, please use a toothbrush with a little bit of camellia oil (or vegetable oil) and gently wipe around the comb’s teeth. “Oil removes oil”. This is the traditional way to maintain the Tsuge combs. Please do the same way of cleansing for the Tsuge brush but using the Q-tips dipped with camellia oil. Massaging your scalp with the Tsuge brush once a day helps boost blood circulation and improve your complexion. Facial skin and scalp are the same, that’s why your facial skin pulls when you put your hair up in a ponytail.
