Restorative Ayurvedic kansa combing massage tool for healthier scalp, hair, body and mind. Ancient India's beauty wisdom redefined: our reassuringly weighty self-care tool is hand-crafted by hereditary master artisans in pure kansa. The magic of this healing metal alloy is that it acts like a magnet between the skin's surface and underlying connective tissue, subtly activating pranic energy (marma) points on the scalp to help rejuvenate follicles at a cellular level and support stress, inflammation and fatigue to melt away.
Designed with seamless curved teeth, our comb gently detangles, soothes the scalp and encourages healthier hair growth. Kansa combing also works remarkably well on the body, by boosting micro-circulation and lymphatic drainage for smoother, brighter looking skin and an overall feeling of lightness.
A slow beauty tradition steeped in ancestral properties; the elegant design of our Kansa Comb belies the 26 individual processes it passes through in the hands of its master craftsmen. These processes include casting, repetitive heating, moulding, scraping and beating over a charcoal furnace to keep the kansa metal malleable enough to achieve a seamless, gleaming finish. Each Kansa Comb has its very own patina that changes beautifully. and is made to cherish for all time. We hope you embrace the minor imperfections of each handcrafted Comb and appreciate the time and love that has gone into making each unique piece.
Kansa is a metal alloy prescribed in Ayurveda to help balance ph levels. You may notice a grey tinge on the skin when using your Comb and this is simply a sign of excess acidity being drawn to the surface and will easily wipe away. Care for your Kansa Comb by wiping clean and store away from direct sunlight.
Use as part of your daily hair strengthening ritual by combing from the front hairline, down to the back of the neck and keep at your fingertips to diminish fatigue. To further rejuvenate, use with a few drops of Grow Strong Hair Oil or our dosha Massage Oils if using on the body. Massage using rhythmic, circular, and gliding rotations; anti-clockwise to release stagnant energy and clockwise to rejuvenate.
“The marma points in the scalp connect with all parts of the body, bringing positive healing effects throughout. Furthermore, Kansa has exceptional anti-microbial properties, which in turn serve to deactivate pathogens, boost immunity and calm the mind. With blocked energy released, immunity and balance can be restored.
Marma (acupuncture) points are anatomical junctions in the body where two of more tissues meet. Think of these in terms of a train grid, where you need to hop off and make another connection to keep your journey flowing. I keep my Kansa Comb on my desk and reach for it when I hit an afternoon slump. A few moments of massaging my head, neck and shoulders immediately soothes and energises”.
