What are the different hookah heads?

The most popular hookah head variations:

  •     Multi-hole head
  •     Phunnel head (single hole head)
  •     Vortex head
  •     Clay head

The hookah multi-hole head

The multi-hole head is very popular among hookah smokers and also suitable for beginners. It can be made of clay or stone, but we recommend the clay version, because the tobacco tastes more intense there. The draught is very pleasant and it is not expensive - so perfect to try out!

The hookah Phunnel (single hole head)

The single hole head, also called phunnel head, is a good choice for advanced smokers. Similar to a funnel, it has a large hole in the middle that is higher than the bottom. Here, the tobacco is distributed around the hole so that the molasses and flavors cannot get into the smoke column. This method does not affect the draught or smoke quality. However, the taste is more intense because the molasses along with the flavors remains in the hookah head.
In addition, the market is very broad and you have a wide choice of different brands - here you can try a lot!

The hookah Vortex Head

This resembles the shape of a phunnel, because the holes in the Vortex head are also in an elevation in the middle of the head. Through several holes, the air is distributed more evenly and pulls perfectly through the complete tobacco - so the aroma can fully develop.

The hookah clay head (natural head)

Whether you do a hookah head test or look in the hookah head comparison, the clay head has been a classic for years and is especially popular with beginners. This is mainly due to the low price and robustness. At the same time, it conducts the heat well and gives it evenly to the tobacco. Even though there are now other heads made of clay, the clay head remains a popular choice.

Advantages and disadvantages of a glazed and unglazed hookah head

The unglazed hookah head advantages and disadvantages

An unglazed hookah head is a head that has not been further treated after firing. This is the case with a clay head, this consists only of the basic material clay without additional protective layer.
Clay is absorbent and stores liquids, just like a sponge. Therefore, when clay heads are used, they eventually "bleed". That is, the molasses is squeezed out when smoked because the pores are full - which is unavoidable and only shows that the clay head has been in use for a while.
To prevent bleeding, you can simply boil the clay head in hot water and then dry it. Most of the time, it's just worth it to buy a new clay head for a few euros. After all, you have to consider the effort and electricity costs of boiling it out several times.
The clay head is the perfect way to enhance your own tobacco flavor. By smoking the clay head, you can adjust the flavor of the tobacco to your own gusto, highlighting your individual flavor. Many people in the tobaccoscene swear by this method and therefore have several clay heads for different flavors. Of course, this is debatable, but in the end, everyone decides for himself what he likes. The other advantage of the clay head is the low price. Even if it falls and breaks, it can be replaced relatively quickly and cheaply.

The glazed hookah head advantages and disadvantages

A glazed head is a clay head that is covered with a transparent or colored glaze after firing. This protective layer seals the base of the clay and ensures that molasses cannot penetrate the head. The glazing agent is either applied in powder form to the still-wet clay and then dried in the kiln, or applied as a liquid glaze and hardened in the kiln.
A glazed head has many advantages: It does not take on flavor, is easy to clean, and usually looks better than an unglazed head. Glaze can be created in an infinite number of colors and designs - from gold tones to pastels, patterns and grains.
The most expensive head is not necessarily the best. This is because the price of a glazed clay head discourages many, when in fact it would be the best choice. However, the glaze on the head will micro-crack over time, spreading over the entire head - which can be quite annoying. But this is a normal wear and tear and unavoidable.
