Keeping Those Hairbrushes Clean

With proper maintenance, a brush used every day should last between one and three years, but let’s be honest, most of us keep our brushes until their broken or unusable. But it turns out cleaning your hairbrush regularly will get rid of dirt, product residue, and oils from the scalp that build-up on the bristles overtime.

 

To clean your brush properly, begin by removing all stray hairs caught in the bristles. Next, you’ll need warm water and some type of cleanser from shampoo to dish washing liquid, we want the brush nice and soapy. You can use your hands to make sure the lather gets all over the bristles. Just make sure that you’re only ‘scrubbing’ the bristles one way, rather than in a back-and-forth motion in order to maintain their integrity. Do this for about 30 seconds to a minute, then rinse. And rinse. And rinse again. You want to make sure there’s no excess shampoo or soap on the brush, so keep rinsing until the water runs clear and you don’t see any suds. Give the brush a good shake to get rid of excess moisture, then lay flat to dry, bristle side down, ideally overnight. Easy enough right? Get those brushes and combs out and give them a wash, you won’t regret it!
