Hair Doctor Story


The Hair Doctor story

 Ron Owen, a design engineer at Steven Plastics watched his daughter Sara flinch and cry out each time her mother combed her thick hair.  After close observation, he noticed how hair strands would frequently wrap around the comb pin causing hair to pull on the scalp, stretch and break. 


Ron decided to re-design the comb so that each pin would move and spin to prevent hair from clinging and pulling.  After many trial and errors, he successfully designed a unique spine to allow each comb pin to fully rotate and move up/down, significantly reducing painful pulling as well as hair loss and breakage.  

He also discovered that his design was superior for detangling wet hair without causing brealage.  He learned that hydrogen bonds in the hair strand are broken when wet and reform when dry. This explained why wet hair is so susceptible to damage when wet.  Rotating teeth are proven to be much more gentle to wet hair, because the rotating tooth combs significantly lessens the pulling force that causes hair to stretch and break. Hair Doctor manufactures 12 unique comb models.  100% Manufactured in the USA
