Pulling your brush through a knot in your hair is not only painful — it’s also terrible for your tresses.
But all that could be helped if you just use your brush in the right way.
TikTok user Audrey Victoria shared a video explaining how to perfectly brush your locks – and it’s all about getting the angle of the brush right.
“Stop brushing your hair like this,” Audrey wrote, as she showed herself struggling to get her horizontal brush through a tangle in her hair.
Instead, she turned her brush vertical and pulled it easily through.
“Do this instead, no yanking and no breakage,” she added.
“Yeah I tried it, it works!” someone wrote, while another person added: “Great tip.”
Others were quick to point out that the hack won’t work on those with curly hair, and would also work better if the hair was brushed from the bottom to the top, rather than vice versa.
Audrey has earned herself a staggering 1.6 million followers with her amazing hair tip videos, which see her regularly share her suggestions for haircare products.
Another of Audrey’s videos shows her using green tea as a hair rinse in order to promote hair growth.
She advises using a brewed, cooled cup of green tea to apply to the hair after shampooing, and leaving on for 20 minutes before washing out and conditioning.
“Green tea is anti inflammatory so it can help reduce scalp inflammation,” she wrote alongside the video.
“I love all your hacks, they saved my hair!” one impressed follower commented.
