Here are a few simple ways to clean your brushes for a few minutes of work each week.

It’s easy to forget to clean our hair tools.

Why is it important to clean our hair tools?

Using hair tools that have product build-up on them will have trapped hair, dirt, oil, bacteria, old products and maybe even dust mites.  When you use hair tools that have not been cleaned in a long time, you are re-depositing grease, oils, old products and dead skin cells right back onto your clean scalp and hair.

Here are a few simple ways to clean your brushes for a few minutes of work each week:

  • Pick out the hairs with a comb, a bobby pin, or your fingers. The more hair you pull out, the easier it will be to clean your brush.
  •  Fill the sink with warm water and shampoo.
  •  Soak your brush in the water for 15 minutes
  •  Scrub the product build-up using a toothbrush or cloth until your hair brush is thoroughly clean.
  •  Set your brush out on a clean towel to air dry.
  • DO NOT use bleach, harsh chemicals, or other detergents to clean your hair tools.
  • DO NOT boil your hair tools. This can cause them to melt or break. This can also minimize their performance when using them for your hair.
