Girls, let's face it. That trusty hairbrush you use every day is surely full of hair, dandruff, oil, and maybe even hair product residues. I know you'd rather not continue to drag that mess through your beautiful tresses. It's time to give that brush a good cleaning and make sure it stays that way.
The following method is for routine cleaning and should be used once a week to once a month, depending on how often you brush your hair. The best time to clean your brush is before you shampoo so that you can use your clean brush on clean hair. Gather the following materials:
Now do the following to get the brushes clean:
If your brush is really dirty, though, and has become coated with cleaning products, you can try this method after completing steps 1-4 above. Fill your bathroom sink with a mixture of warm water and ˝ cup baking soda. Soak your brushes and/or combs in this solution for about 15 minutes. Then rinse them off and let them dry overnight on a towel, with the bristles facing down.
Be cautioned that you shouldn't soak certain types of brushes in water, such as natural wood-bodied brushes, those with boar-bristles, or rubber-cushioned brushes. They may become damaged and not last as long as they should.
Using a clean brush will make your hair look and feel much healthier and less greasy. Your scalp, too, will feel better as you get rid of oily buildup at the roots.
