A Kangha is a small wooden comb that Sikhs use twice a day. It is supposed to be worn in the hair and at all times under one's turban. The comb is a symbol of cleanliness. Combing their hair reminds Sikhs that their lives should be tidy and organized.The Kangha is one of the Five Ks of Sikhism -- five items that Guru Gobind Singh commanded Khalsa Sikhs to wear at all times in 1699. They are: Kesh (uncut hair), Kangha, Kara (an iron bracelet), Kachera (100% cotton tieable undergarment) and Kirpan (an iron dagger large enough to defend oneself).
