TikToker @lexlatt first shared the hack – and user @mommameg.11 dueted her video, and was equally surprised at the tip.
“You’re telling me I’ve been brushing my hair wrong,” the TikToker, whose name is Lex, according to her profile, said.
She held her hairbrush horizontally, and showed how people typically run it through their hair with the handle parallel to the ground.
“Everyone holds it like this. It gets caught though,” she said.

Lex dubbed it “the worst.”
She then held the brush to the camera, and revealed how the bristles do not sit in straight rows horizontally.
Lex flipped the brush to be perpendicular, however – with the handle facing into the ground – and revealed the bristles appear in straight rows.
“You’re supposed to…” she trailed off, as she ran the brush seamlessly through her hair, and kept it perpendicular.
“Why did they make it so?” so she questioned as she trailed off.
Dueting Lex’s video, user mommameg.11 – whose name is Meg, according to her profile – showed as she tried the hack for herself.
As she did it herself, she was shocked to find the brush went through her hair loads easier, and got tangles out more smoothly.
