The burning question*: Do you brush your hair?

It’s Monday, so let TheJournal.ie distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s Monday, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: We didn’t even realise this was a controversial one until someone mentioned in the newsroom that they NEVER brush their hair – which led to a major and previously unexpressed divide between the regular brushers and the non-brushers (you can use the photos at the end of every article to guess who falls into which camp…).

For some people, brushing their hair is a normal part of their daily routine. For others, it’s just another annoying thing to have to do every day, a pointless part of everyday grooming.

It’s a tough one. So what do you do?

Poll Results:

B - I brush it when it needs brushing. Every few days/weeks/months. (1991)
C - I'm a free-thinking renegade who doesn't brush my hair ever. Don't try and make me conform to your tyrannical hair-brushing regime. (1454)
A - Of course I brush my hair every day. I'm not a monster. (888)
D - I don't have any hair and this poll is just adding to my pain. (853)
E - Can't we all just get along? (234)
