I believe combs are at the first on the list of accessories to decorate female hair. All over the world, men have been absorbed in the picture of women brushing with combs. Would not you take a look at the pictures drawn by Renoir; Great Master of Impressionism? Some women are using combs for brushing within the eternal world.

In my case, by the way, women combing out with pectin look fascinating even if she were with shoulder length hair, not long one. I, then, get the urge to tell her “let me give you a hug.” I have understood that the answer is No. Digression finishes.

One of my last articles said “box trees are solid and thick.” In Japan, there are the combs made of Japanese box trees. Tsujichu Shoten in Osaka has produced and launched them. It is said there are many big fans of the combs over Nippon, out of the high quality and comfortableness.



Their flower-carved combs of box trees are said to be well-received by the female customers. It might be because women almost long to be alive in loveliness like flowers, as they say the boxwood combs will last a lifetime. The flower-carved ones have seven types; plum, cherry blossom, peony, rose, camellia. chrysanthemum and ivy. You can enjoy decorating with different ones depending on seasons.

Box trees are wonderful as called “Jewelry of Trees.” They are very oily and don’t damage your hair by static electricity. The comfortableness and soft touch are not found at usual combs.



Combs are called “KUSHI” in Japanese. Because “KU” means pain and “SHI” does death in Japanese, we usually don’t take any combs as precious gifts for any others. Although that may be just an absurd superstition, you must be cautious when trying to take as a gift.
