The one surprising thing you're doing wrong when brushing your hair – and it's all about the time you comb it

BRUSHING fine, straight hair when wet can cause major breakage, according to the self-described 'Aussie Rapunzel'.

And the 22-year-old hair model from Sydney knows what she's talking about – her blonde mane measures more than one metre and has helped attract more than 806,000 followers to her TikTok page.

In a new video on her page, Rapunzel showed off her amazing tresses while they were wet in the shower, and advised against trying to comb them while sodden.

"Never, ever brush your hair when it’s wet if you have straight, fine hair like me," she said.

"This is when the hair is in its most fragile state and can cause breakage."

But if you have curly hair, you can ignore that advice, as the opposite actually applies to tousled tresses.

And while some of her followers were quick to praise Rapunzel for her tip, others questioned whether or not it was accurate.

"Curly or straight when hair is wet it’s the same. Use a wet brush…..: the bristles are flexible," one person wrote, to which Rapunzel replied: "False! Curly and straight hair are very different when wet."

"I have curly hair and it absolutely RIPS my hair completely out," someone else wrote. "If you have curly/wavy hair brush your hair BEFORE WASHING it helps A LOT."

Another commented: "I work in a hair salon and I learned not brushing your hair when’s it’s wet can cause it to fall out, not completely but strands."

Among Rapunzel's other tips in her videos are to lather shampoo on the hands before putting on the hair if your locks are oily, and why you should try rosemary oil if you are struggling with hair loss.

In other hair news, this woman claims that washing her hair twice a month is how she keeps them glossy.

Another lady went to the salon for a quick colour touch-up but her hair was left so badly fried that she had to cut it off.

And why women everywhere are scrambling to get their hands on B&M's £16.99 brush.
