Bring out the best in your hair. The smooth, seamless teeth glide effortlessly through hair without snagging and causing breakage, and without scraping scalp. You will never want to use synthetic combs again.
Perfect length for engaging all teeth without overloading. Curved grip for comfortable hold and balance at various angles without bending wrist.
If you use Camellia oil, this comb will save you money since you get much more even and better coverage by using less oil.
Reduces frizz, since wood does not generate static electricity (which synthetic combs do). Works with your hair, rather than against it.
Polished teeth caress hair instead of fighting it.Teeth are seamless and smooth all around, unlike plastic combs with rough lines in between teeth (left from the molding process) which snag and damage hair.
Maintains optimal and balanced levels of moisture and oil throughout your hair, promoting natural shine and gloss. In contrast to plastic, wood teeth have microscopic pores which pick up and re-distribute scalp's natural sebum and any oil you apply in a thin, even layer throughout hair.
Tsuge, also known as boxwood, is one of the densest, hardest types of wood. This is one reason why Tsuge combs can be crafted to such high polish and finish.
Most other hard woods are brittle, which makes them vulnerable to shattering. Tsuge is notable in the sense that its extreme hardness is combined with its remarkable flexibility.
Boxwood is a small tree, which grows extremely slowly. This is one reason why it is so dense. The wood is harvested from trees which are at least 35 years old, cleaned and fumigated, and undergo a long drying process in special warehouses for at least 10 years. After that, pieces with best wood grain are carefully selected for handcrafting — undergoing multiple steps involving rough-shaping, carving, polishing and soaking with Camellia oil.
Tokigushi is the traditional Japanese comb for all-around everyday use. Gushi (or kushi) in Japanese means comb. Toki (a variation of the verb "toku") means untangling.
With proper care, Tsuge combs last for years and years, and get softer and more polished with time. The wood becomes naturally darker and richer in color. Tsuge combs render their best performance when regularly cleaned with Camellia oil.
Every comb comes with a 5 ml bottle of our best Tsubaki (Camellia) oil.

56 years ago, Mom left home and had to leave behind her tsuge comb. After I heard that story, I bought this tsuge comb with the handle embellished with sakura carving. LOVELIER in person than online! Mom was speechless yet was all smiles. She truly appreciates the craftsmanship put into this comb and was very happy to receive the sample tea and the small washcloth. It all reminded her of home, since Wawaza is in her home town. I’m glad that Wawaza exists; it maintains the bond between me and Mom. FAST shipping and no hidden damages in-transit. I will be ordering one of these combs for myself to use during the day (I use the cleansing comb at night) and a bottle of the Camelia oil to refill both of our 5 mL bottles for our combs. Thank you, Wawaza, for making my mom’s spirit sing!
