As medical hoaxes go, magnets are pretty harmless. Go ahead and brush your hair with a $20 magnet if you want to. It’s not going to hurt you and it’s not expensive. Yes, it’s stupid, but we’re talking Fushigi Magic Gravity Ball levels of money here.
Helpfully, the listing instructs customers to keep the magnetic hairbrush away from floppy disks and videotapes. No problem, unless you’ve got a time machine.
