Hi, I hate to break it to you, but you’re gross. Don’t worry, I’m also gross! Humans are generally very gross beings. And that’s why personal hygiene and the billion-dollar beauty industry is a thing. Today, we’re talking about scalp health and how dirty your hair brush is.
If you’re anything like me, one thorough brush of your hair leaves behind excess strands, product buildup, lint, dust and probably other things that science hasn’t discovered yet. Don’t even get me started on the thick, dry shampoo residue. I’m not proud of it, but I usually just keep brushing my hair with the gunky brush until I can’t take it anymore and buy a new one. Picking off the strands and shampooing the brush can only do so much.
My fellow disgusting hair brush users, when I tell you that I screamed when I found out a hair brush cleaner tool actually exists.
You probably can figure this out on your own, but the hair brush cleaner is super intuitive to use. Just brush the brush cleaner through your hair brush after you brush, and then you have a clean brush. The repetition here is important.
Kitsch Double-Sided Hair Brush Cleaner Tool has a dual-edge design to help remove hairs or all of that buildup stuck on your brush. One end of the tool features bristles to quickly pick up hairs and scrub hard-to-reach debris. The other side has a sturdy metal come that works through dense brushes like boar bristle or other specialty brushes. This way, you only need one tool for multiple types of hair brushes.
I also love that the hair tool is crafted with durable recycled materials like recycled polypropylene (rPP), nylon and stainless steel. You know, to make up for my very wasteful previous habit of throwing out brushes when they get too gross.
Also, like, it’s $12. That’s such a good price in exchange for keeping your hair brushes in tip-top shape and your scalp cute and happy.
