Agreement with reflexive verbs in perfect tense

I wrote ´nous nous sommes brossés les cheveux’, which was marked as only partially correct. It should have been ´brossé’. I don’t understand why the ´s’ shouldn’t be there. Agreement with ‘nous’. 

Can anyone help, please?

The direct object of this sentence is les cheveux. Nous is only the indirect object.
