The natural, Japanese, eco-biodegradable bamboo comb.
Wooden combs in Japan were once believed to have shamanic qualities. Women would brush their black hair thinking that the combs would gather each strand’s spiritual energy. In later years they became used to create elaborate hairdos for thegeikoandkabukiactors of traditional Japanese entertainment scenes.
