Let's be real. There's nothing worse than reaching for a hairbrush and having to pull hair out from the bristles before you can actually use it – especially if you're already running late for something.
For years, I would take a comb (one of those cheap ones you get for free at a hotel) and use that to try and remove hair and product build-up from my brushes – and then Sephora came out with something better.
It's called the Brush Meets Comb Hair Brush Cleaner, and it's one of those products people say is completely changing their routines.
This is a Sephora Collection beauty tool that already has amazing reviews. It sells for $13 and is available online and in stores – and it would make a perfect stocking stuffer or birthday gift.
Basically, this rake-like tool has small, sharp and flexible teeth (made out of steel) that fit between the bristles of most hairbrushes. When you move it through through the bristles, it removes hair, dust and product buildup. And while the teeth are strong, they're definitely gentle enough that you don't need to worry about damage to your expensive hairbrushes.
One thing to be aware of is that this hair brush cleaner may not work to remove the lint that sometimes collects around bristles. As a few reviewers noted, it works on just about everything else.
