Woman shares disgusting discovery lurking in her hairbrush

Woman shares disgusting discovery lurking in her hairbrush

A woman on TikTok has shared her disgusting discovery she made when she decided to wash her hair brushes for the first time, and has warned others not to make the same mistake. 

The woman shared the video of her deciding to wash her brushes after seeing a salon owner cleanse her hair tools in order to prevent your hair from getting greasy. 

She placed her hair brush in her bathroom sink with hot water and shampoo for a deep clean. 

After leaving the brushes for an hour, the woman returned to the bathroom to find the water had gone brown. 

“Oh my god, that’s disgusting,” she exclaimed. 

"Ladies, don't forget to wash your hairbrushes. I didn't even know that was a thing. Look at the state of that."

The video has been viewed over 3.8 million times, with her followers also sharing their shock at the results. 

"I'm buying a new hair brush and starting from scratch," one person commented.

"Goes and washes hair brushes now," another said.

While most people were shocked at the idea, some were surprised that this didn’t seem to be a well known fact. 

"This confuses me that people didn't know this. It's the same as washing your makeup brushes," one person pointed out.

The salon owner who posted the original video said that a dirty hairbrush could be the reason people suffer from greasy hair. 

As you use your brush, the grease and oil from your hair builds up and sits in your brush until it’s next use, and ends up getting transferred back to your hair. 

So, go and wash your hair brushes and see if you can see the difference in your hair.
