Recently, the new Sephora Brush Meets Comb Hair Brush Cleaner ($10 came across my desk and I thought it was a bit of a gimmick, so I put it aside. However, after a bit of online browsing, I noticed the tool had nearly 3000 “loves” and a 4.9/5 rating on Sephora’s website and my curiosity got the best of me. After just one use, I wondered how I ever lived without it.
This handheld “rake” quickly and effectively removes hair, dirt and product buildup from your hairbrush. The small, flexible steel teeth grab every hair in a single sweep without damaging your hairbrush. I never really thought that I needed to a tool for the job—I’d usually just use my fingers or a fine-tooth comb, but this little helper made my hair brush look (and feel) like brand new after just one swift clean.
According to online reviews, the tool is particularly helpful for those who use boar bristle brushes (I do not, so I can’t comment on this, but apparently it’s effective at cleaning all types and sizes of hair brushes). I can imagine it would be really handy for cleaning round brushes—those things are such a pain to clean!
I’ll spare you the gross visual of me cleaning my favourite (and very old) hairbrush with this tool, so you’ll just have to take my word on it. It’s quite frivolous, but I promise it will be the best $10 you’ve ever spent.
The Sephora Brush Meets Comb Hair Brush Cleaner retails for $10 and is available online at sephora.com.shop this story
