I'm a hairdresser – people are brushing their hair wrong and it’s just making tangles worse | The Sun

THERE'S nothing more annoying than trying to get tangles out of your hair, only for it to get knottier and knottier by the second.

But one hairdresser has revealed it's all to do with the way you brush it, and changing direction could be a game changer.

Hairstylist Shannon – who is also a hair extension specialist – explained that brushing your locks from top to bottom is the biggest mistake you can make.

She demonstrated in a video on TikTok by using two sets of hair extensions, both of which she tangled up using a comb.

Shannon then took the comb and showed how easy it was to detangle one side when she brushed it starting at the bottom.

On the other side, she began at the top.

"This is why you should brush your hair starting at the bottom," she wrote over the video.

"Brushing from the top compresses all the tangles into one big knot."

People in the comments section were quick to weigh in, with one writing: "WAIT BUT EVER SINCE I STARTED DOING THIS MY HAIR HAS HAD BARELY ANY KNOTS."

"Who brushes their hair at the top?" another asked.

"Wow, thank you, I’ve grown my hair out long and have been having an issue with tangles," a third commented.

"Best hair hack," someone else praised.

As another wrote: "Ooo thx for the tip".

"I thought everybody knew this," someone else said.

To which Shannon replied: "You’d be surprised!"

While it may feel counterintuitive to brush from the bottom, doing so means you can loosen knots as you go – and you don't end up ripping the hair.

It's important to brush your hair regularly, as doing so helps distribute the scalp oils along the entire strand.
