Cleaning Your Brushes- Part 2

The hair grooming variety. A few tips:

  1. Before you shampoo your hair, gather two hair brushes or one hair brush and one comb.
  2. Wet the brushes/brush and comb under warm running water.
  3. Apply a small amount of shampoo to the bristles of one of the brushes.
  4. Pick all the hair out of the brush.
  5. Gently scrub the two brushes’ bristles together. If you are cleaning a comb, gently scrub the brush’s bristles with the comb. For best results, scrub in one direction only.
  6. Continue gently scrubbing as you hold the items under the warm running water until all the suds are gone.
  7. Dry the brush(es) or comb on a towel. Don’t be rough with the brush’s bristles or they might fall out.
  8. Try an alternative way. You can also clean a comb by soaking it in a mug full of warm water and a bit of shampoo. Or, you can try a mug full of white vinegar, which will remove oily deposits left by your hair. Rinse and dry.

Tip: If cleaning your styling tools with vinegar, be sure to add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil to reduce the acidic smell of the vinegar.
