Frequently Asked Questions

Can rotating teeth really reduce hair loss?
Tumbled smooth rotating teeth actually do prevent hair loss because when teeth rotate it prevents hair from catching or wrapping around the pin and snapping it off or pulling it out of the hair follicle.

What causes wet hair to break off?
Hair is most susceptible to damage when wet. This is due to the hydrogen bonds in the hair that are broken when wet and reformed when dry. Combing with a non-rotating tooth comb can cause hair to stretch and break. A scientific study concluded that rotating teeth are more gentle to hair than conventional combs because the teeth move and rotate, greatly eliminating the pulling force that causes hair to stretch and break.

What type of pin does hair doctor use in their combs?
Hair Doctor uses solid stainless-steel pins that are precisely tapered then tumbled until the tips extra round and smooth. This process takes 2-3 day to accomplish. The finished pins are then polished to perfection.
