The combs featured here are all made from bull horn. The Chinese consider them to have health benefits for the user. Why?

According to information that I got online, it seems that a doctor in ancient China, Li Shi Zhen (1518-1593) mentioned in his famous book named Compendium of Materia Medica that ox and sheep horn products contain natural protein, and as such can stop headaches, baldness and loss of hair.
Nowadays the horn comb is becoming popular among health enthusiasts who recognise their health benefits.  Horn combs do not give off static electricity like plastic combs as they are made out of a natural substance that is the same as hair - keratin. It is the gentlest type of comb that grooms and conditions your hair while detangling your hair and cleaning out dirt or grime and leaving it feeling revitalized and fresh. It unplugs and treats follicles and also spreads your natural oils. This conditioning action leaves the hair naturally glossy, moisturized. It helps stop hair breakage and split ends. The horn comb can discourage flaking and relieve an itchy scalp. Horn Comb is good for exfoliating dandruff, debris and dead cells. Horn combs are great for scalp stimulation, and helps the circulation of the blood, transmitting nutrition to your hair and causing the muscles and joints to relax. Thus in a way it can relieve stress and headaches by massaging your head.
