Hookahs originated in the Middle East and are primarily manufactured in either Egypt or China. Beginning in the 15th century, hookah is one of the oldest and most popular traditions in the Middle East. What started as a coconut base with a tube and simple head has turned into a work of art using wood, stainless steel, aluminum among other materials.
Hookah Pipes generally come in three different sizes (small, medium, large) depending on the occasion but are offered in many different styles and appearances, including but not limited to such themes as Acrylic, Bohemian, Exotic, and Modern designs that cater to all different environments. Many famous brand names exist in the world of Hookah, including but not limited to Khalil Mamoon, Mya, and Vapor Hookahs. Hookahs are generally made out of aluminum, iron, zinc, brass, nickel, and steel materials to ensure an authentic and quality style appeal. The demand for variety in the Western world has yielded to Hookahs consisting of either one hose, or multiple hoses. Multiple Hose Hookahs are used on such occasions where more than one smoker desires to use the Hookah during the same smoking session, making it more convenient and less time consuming. Single Hose Hookahs still produce the best smoking experience available and offer the age-old customs of passing the Hookah to other smokers using proper etiquette guidelines.

When looking for the best hookah for you, there are several factors to consider. Hookahs come in many different sizes, types and styles. The first thing to consider is the overall size of your hookah. A large hookah is more traditional and brings a feeling of class. A small hookah will be easier to move around and is more stable creating fewer accidents. Great for travel or smoking hookah in new places.
When buying a hookah, you have the choice of a single hose hookah or a multi hose hookah. A single-hose will give you the best hookah experience because there is nowhere for excess air to escape. When smoking a single hose hookah with friends, use hookah etiquette as you pass the hookah hose around. A multi hose hookah may work better for some that smoke with friends more often eliminating the need to pass the hose. Be aware, when one person is smoking, the other will need to plug their hose so that air doesn't escape. Options are available in a 2 hose hookah, 3 hose hookah, and 4 hose hookah.
Along with hose options, hookahs come in several different styles. A traditional hookah, usually made in the Middle East, has a classic shape with simple designs and are usually brass or a combination of metals. An Egyptian hookah is very similar to a traditional style and made in Egypt. Khalil Mamoon Hookahs are the most popular Egyptian hookahs. Vapor Hookah makes a glass hookah that is a beautiful piece and gives you a very clean smoke. All pieces are made with blown glass including the adapters and hookah hose handle. Growing in popularity is the modern hookah. Sleek, simple designs usually made with stainless steel, wood or aluminum. Popular among young hookah enthusiasts. There are a ton of hookah options at SouthSmoke including a gun hookah, exotic hookah and acrylic hookah which works well for travel.
A hookah is a water pipe that is used to smoke hookah shisha or flavored tobacco. A hookah uses charcoal to bake shisha which creates smoke. The smoke then travels through the hookah stem and into the water to be filtered and cooled before entering the hookah hose for inhaling.
The ideal hookah height is between 24 inches and 34 inches for an all-around mix of performance and stability as well as ease of handling. Taller hookahs that include a larger base for water are able to hold more smoke and create larger clouds but may be top-heavy. Smaller hookahs are great for travel and storage. There is not a huge performance advantage for either large or small hookahs.
SouthSmoke recommends that you rinse your hookah, hookah hose, and hookah bowl after every smoking session. Do a complete cleaning with 420 Cleaning Solution at least once every 3 to 4 sessions for best performance and to eliminate the buildup of flavoring juices and bacteria. See our blog here, to learn how to clean a hookah.
For the best performance, SouthSmoke recommends a single hose hookah. One hose hookahs are more airtight and provide a better smoking experience. Multi-hose hookahs like 2 hose hookahs, 3 hose hookahs, and 4 hose hookahs do have their advantages. They are great for smoking with a larger group. Multi-hose hookahs can usually be converted back to a single hose hookah with the right hookah parts and hookah accessories.
