A wood pin brush represents the safest and gentlest way to delicately separate loosely tangled hairs. The wooden pins (Carpino Wood, aka Hornbeam) delicately separate out the area of the tangle from the rest of the hair, then work gently to loosen by drawing individual hairs upward and out to the side, away from the knot. The wooden pins eliminate painful pullling on individual hair follicles that can possibly damage or break the hair under the strain. This will also eliminate the tighening of any knots which are already present. The wooden pins utilize the natural oils to polish the hair by distributing sebum and/or applied oils. 100% static free.
