how to clean hair brushes


Clean hair brushes and combs are not only more appealing to look at - they will also keep your hair clean longer.

The good news: It's easy to clean hair brushes, and you should plan to clean them weekly.

All you need to get these grooming essentials clean is shampoo, running water, and a toothpick (for really settled-in hairbrush hair).

Here's how the weekly cleaning routine shakes out.



  1   Clean Hair Brushes by First Removing Hair from the Bristles

You can clean your hair brshes of hair by pulling it from the bristles with your fingers. Tightly bound hair can be loosened and removed with a toothpick.

  2   Soak the Brush in Warm Water and Shampoo

Soak the hair brush in a sink filled with warm water, with a squirt of shampoo added to help break up any oils, grease, or hair styling products on the surface for about 15 minutes.

The shampoo will also clean your hairbrush bristles quite nicely at the same time.

Gently scrub the base of the hair brush with your fingers after the 15-minute soak. Then move on to the bristles.

Continue gently removing debris until all the hair and visible buildup on the base and the bristles disappear.

Rinse with clean water. Lay on a towel to dry. 

  3   Clean Stubborn Oily Deposits from Your Brush with Vinegar

If the bristles still don't feel clean, submerge the brush in a coffee mug filled with equal parts of warm water and vinegar. This will help remove stubborn, oily deposits. Let soak for 15 minutes. Rinse, and then dry the brush flat on a clean towel.

  4   Clean Wooden, Padded, or Rubber-Cushioned Brushes Without Submerging in Water

If your brush has a wood base, rubber padding, or has natural boar bristles, clean it under running warm water with shampoo - without submerging it in water. Water can go through the vent holes on cushioned brushes and will erode the cushioning.

On wood brushes, sustained exposure to water can cause the wood to weaken and break. And natural boar bristles can twist or curl if submerged in water.
