Your Brush Might Be The Reason Your Hair Is Greasy
We all know it’s not good to wash your hair every day, right?
In fact, some of your fave celebs claim to go multiple days without sudsing their strands, and maybe you do too.
Only problem is, some of us with greasy hair can’t seem to go more than one day without using shampoo. But is it just how your hair naturally is, or is it something else?
Well, it could actually just be your hairbrush – or how you’re taking care of your brush.
There are two reasons why your hairbrush could be amping up the grease. First, it could just be that you’re not cleaning your brush enough (which, newsflash, you’re supposed to), or you might just have too much hair in your brush that you’re not clearing out.
Obvi, these are both an easy fix. But how does one clean their hairbrush? Well, kind of the same way you would clean your hair.
Real Simple recommends swirling the head of your brush in warm water and adding a couple drops of shampoo, then using an old toothbrush to scrub any styling products or dead skin that might be on the brush.
Dermatologists recommend that you wash your brush every one to two weeks, and you should start clearing hair out of your brush every time you use it.
If you didn’t know that you were supposed to be cleaning your brush, don’t feel bad, I didn’t either. But, now we both do and we can both aspire to go five days without washing our hair like Kim Kardashian claims to.
