Use the right tool for the job. Throw out that plastic pick or that comb you got from your girlfriend, and get in the game.
Plastic combs not only create static which is counterproductive to purposeful grooming, but small invisible inconsistencies in the teeth can be ripping your beard as you comb through it. Combs made of peach wood are naturally smoother and better suited for the intricacies of facial hair. Branded by the best beard grooming products on the market, it's an obvious win.
