What distinguishes our articles is their professional and high-quality production. Many manufacturers of hair accessories rely on inexpensive materials such as plastic and injection molding, which are machine-made in bulk. The hair combs, hairpins, and scrunchies manufactured this way usually have a limited durability and are not always comfortable to wear. In order to be able to offer our customers a welcome diversion from these daily essentials, we rely on manual work and the processing of high-quality materials. Hair claws, hair clips, barrettes and hair combs from Redwood are made of materials such as real horn, real wood and Rhodoïd. For the production of our hairpins, scrunchies, brushes and combs, we rely not least on domestic, European woods such as olive wood and natural horn – materials that guarantee a long durability.
Hair accessories made of Rhodoïd cellulose-acetat
Many of our hair accessories are made out of Rhodoïd cellulose acetate, Rhodoïd for short. Rhodoïd was first made from Italian cotton around 1917 and is an excellent choice for producing beautiful and long-lasting hair accessories. Rhodoïd is a sheet material made from natural cotton in Italy. The cotton is first dyed in any shade and then pressed by machine into solid blocks. These blocks are then cut into thin slices. It takes more than ten steps to create elegant hair claws, barrettes and hair clips with different shades and a natural shine. What is special about this production is that each piece of hair jewellery has its own pattern. Each hair accessory made out of Rhodoïd cellulose acetate is thus a small unique specimen.
Hair decoration from Rhodoïd offers some advantages over hair accessories made from cheap raw materials such as plastic or injection moulding. This means that in the processing of Rhodoïd hair claws and barrettes no sharp edges that could damage your hair or even cut it off will occur. Furthermore Rhodoïd a very stable material. Even with frequent wearing, hair ornaments made out of Rhodoïd will keep their brilliance for many years. Besides that, Alice bands, hair clips and hair combs from Rhodoïd-Cellulose acetate are extremely robust and can withstand several falls without damage. If you still notice any damage to your hair accessory, simply send it to us and benefit from our two-year warranty. A particular advantage of hair accessories from Rhodoïd-Cellulose acetate: They are extremely comfortable to wear and can even be adapted to any shape and size. Rhodoïd becomes soft when heated.

Sustainable hairbrushes and hair combs
Regular brushing and combing is elementary for healthy hair. "100 brush strokes a day" - this beauty wisdom is hundreds of years old and resonates to the present day. Today we know that this alone is not enough. The right hairbrush as well as the right hair comb made of high-quality materials are just as important for comprehensive hair care. Natural materials such as wood, horn, wild boar bristles, domestic pig bristles and sisal have always stood the test of time and care for the hair in a completely natural way. That is why we at Redwood have specialised in natural hairbrushes and real wood combs whose materials come exclusively from sustainable agriculture and forestry and have an extremely long life and lasting quality. An elaborate manufacturing process consisting of more than 20 serial work steps ensures a burr-free, smooth surface.
Both the hair comb and the hair brush have important functions in daily hair care. With the comb, knots can be gently untangled, hair can be tidied, individual sections of hair can be toupeed and styled into the desired shape. It is suitable for both dry and damp hair and, with its evenly rounded teeth, is particularly gentle on the scalp and hair structure. Our hair brushes are equipped with high-quality natural bristles that have a similar structure to human hair. This allows the excess sebum to be absorbed during brushing and optimally distributed over the entire length. A quickly greasy roots is reduced and the hair is supplied with nutrients up to the tips. It becomes healthier, stronger and shinier, without any chemical additives.
How to brush your hair? From the bottom up! Always brush and comb your hair in the direction of the hair ends, but do not start at the hairline, but near the hair ends. Only gradually place the hairbrush or comb higher up, until you finally cover the entire path from the hairline to the tip of the hair. This way you avoid unnecessary tearing and breaking of your hair.
Redwood offers natural hair care for every hair type. In our shop you will find a variety of hair brushes and combs in different sizes and widths as well as with different bristle rows and tine thicknesses for every hair care need.
Hair jewellery made from natural wood
Since the beginning of our civilization, wood has been one of the most important raw materials. The first hair ornaments and hair accessories were already largely made out of wood. We have preserved this tradition to this day. Many manufacturers have long ago switched to cheaper materials such as plastic. We, on the other hand, continue to rely on the durability, the naturalness and the classic, noble charm of hairpins and barrettes made from finely crafted European wood.
Unfortunately, the topics of sustainability and regional production are still being neglected. We at Redwood are trying to renounce from globally transported and petroleum-based products. A first step is undoubtedly the return to natural raw materials for our hair accessories. Wood, which is being used for the production of our hairpins and hair combs, has grown out of a biological, natural process and is therefore a CO2-binding material. Processed in detailed craftsmanship within Europe – most of our products are manufactured in Germany and Portugal under fair conditions – our hair accessories have no sharp edges that could endanger your hair when worn. Our wooden hair ornaments are varnished with 100% natural linseed oil, which, unlike other natural oils, hardens completely. This glaze preserves the enchanting brilliance of your hair pins and barrettes, has a water repellent effect and protects the hair ornaments from drying out. With a little care you will be able to wear wood accessories for many decades.
One last special feature of the natural wood: Each hair accessory is absolutely unique. As you know from furniture made of precious wood, the hair ornaments made out of wood in our assortment also have their own individual texture. Convince yourself of the natural charm of real wood hair accessories in our shop and give your hairstyle an elegant, natural touch!
Hair accessories made of natural horn
Hair accessories made out of natural horn are the perfect hair accessories for women who want to give their hair a special brilliance. You won't find hair ornaments made out of natural horn in any discount store – a unique material and a loving workmanship make each barrette of our assortment a real unique specimen.
Over the last decades, cattle breeding has enjoyed unprecedented growth in Europe. With the demand for culinary animal products, the number of cattle rose to new heights year after year. The breeding of these animals produces a natural by-product: horn. For a long time, this horn was simply regarded as a waste product. With sustainability in mind, we at Redwood have made it our business to include horn as a natural material in our range of hair accessories. In loving, Austrian handwork horn from the cattle breeding is processed to noble and high-quality hair decoration products. These hair accessories, including hair claws, hair combs and hairpins benefit from all the advantages of the horn material.
Horn is an extremely robust and stable material. Barrettes and hair claws made out of horn have an extremely long durability and only suffer damage under high mechanical influences. Breaking a hair comb or an earring made out of natural horn is an enhanced effort. With a hair accessory made out of natural horn you buy a care and jewellery product, which you will preserve and wear for decades. Of course the durability does not only apply to the material itself – also the natural shine of the horn remains over many years. If your barrette or your hairpin looks matte, it is sufficient to treat it with vaseline, cooking oil or polish. This allows the original shine to be restored within minutes. Should you ever break a horn product despite everything, we can repair it for you. Order hair accessories made out of natural horn and enjoy them for many decades!
Sustainability is important to us. That's why almost all of our hair accessories are made from natural materials. This includes pressed cotton, also known as Rhodoïd, but also natural horn or real wood. Whether you decide on our barrettes and hairpins out of horn, or prefer a classic Rhodoïd hair claw, is of course up to you. In both cases, however, you can be sure that it is not a chemical injection moulding or plastic article, but a natural product, which is manufactured in Germany, France, Austria and Portugal in elaborate manual work.
