How to Clean Hair Brushes
What’s the point in washing your hair if you’re going to brush it with a dirty brush?!
You wouldn’t clean your car and dry it off with a dirty rag, would you?
Your hair brush can collect oils, dead skin cells, dirt, dust, product residue and even lice if you happen to have them. You could be putting that all back into your hair with every stroke of your brush.
Start by removing the hair from the brush. You can simply do this by pulling the hair out. If your brush has a lot of prongs then you can use a paper clip, bobby pin or tweezers to get in between. Alternatively, there’s even a tool to get this process done more efficiently. After you’ve done this you should tap your brush over the bin to get any loose dust off.
Fill up your sink with some warm water, not too hot because if your brush is plastic, it could get deformed by the heat. You can add some shampoo or detergent to the water which should help remove the oils. After you’ve let your brush soak for a few minutes you can begin scrubbing it, an old toothbrush or dish brush will be sufficient. Scrub your brush until you feel that’s it’s clean.
Rinse your brush thoroughly under flowing warm water. You don’t want to leave any product residue on your brush, particularly if you used detergent. That wouldn’t be good for your hair!
