5 Benefits of Using a ‘Kanga’ Wooden Comb

6 Benefits of Using a Wooden Comb

Kanga: The comb is necessary to keep the hair clean and tidy. A Sikh must comb his hair twice a day and tie his turban neatly. The Gurus wore turbans and instructed the Sikhs to wear turbans for the protection of hair, promotion of social identity and cohesion. It has thus become an essential part of the Sikh dress.


A reminder to regularly maintain the body and mind in a clean and healthy state. 

This symbolises a clean mind and body; since it keeps the uncut hair neat and tidy.


It symbolises the importance of looking after the body which God has created. This does not conflict with the Sikh’s aim to move beyond bodily concerns; since the body is one’s vehicle for enlightenment one should care for it appropriately.

1. Wooden bristles help to naturally condition your hair, and evenly distribute your hair’s natural oils.


2. Wood does not create static electricity, which causes a loss of the hair’s energy to the brain.
3. Helps massage and stimulate blood circulation to the scalp promoting hair growth.
4. Combing the hair front to back, back to front and then right and left will help you feel refreshed.
5. Using this technique twice a day will help maintain youth and good eyesight.

6. When exposed to a blow dryer, the brush stays cool because wood does not conduct heat. When hair is wet the wooden bristles glide easily through the tangles.
