During a test 14 women recorded their daily hair loss and combing habits, with those combing more losing more hair, the research found.

"The women who combed twice a day lost three times more hair than those who combed once a day," the head of the study, Alexander Kirdman of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, was quoted as saying.

"I was surprised by the results, as in medical circles the comb is believed to improve blood circulation and reduce hair loss," added Kirdman, whose study was recently published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment.
