View Full Version : Warped wooden comb :(

June 21st, 2011, 10:58 PM
I own a wooden comb from the Body Shop. It was left on the counter today and became soaked with a bit of water in the center of it. I didn't realize it until it was too late -- the wood became swollen at the center and bent as a result. Now the entire comb is completely curved now.

I left the comb under a stack of books hoping it would straighten out. Has this happened to anyone? I assume it is still okay to use....just not as easy to travel with.

That's really weird. I don't own any and hopefully someone else can help. But if water caused it to warp, maybe try wetting it again and then stacking it under the books or something to flatten it while it dries?

It happened to me. My comb snapped into half when I tried to coax it back into shape

The same thing happened to mine the other day. I put it under a stack of books and it dried flat.

My first did snap when I tried to put it right. My second I put (wet) with the curved part on the counter (so the two ends pointed up) and it dried baxk in shape. Hope this helps

Oh, maybe I shouldn't keep my wooden comb in the bathroom. It's sometimes really humid in there...
