Washing your hairbrush is as important as cleaning or replacing your toothbrush. You should wash it at least once a week. In this article, we will tell you how to do it effectively.
Cleaning Plastic Brushes
The easiest way to clean plastic brushes. Use only warm soapy water and a hair dryer or paper towel. First, remove any hair that is tangled in it. You can easily comb them out with a comb. You can also use scissors to cut through the most tangled tangles
Then soap the brush with liquid soap and rinse it under running water. You can dry it gently with a paper towel and warm air from a hair dryer. It is a good idea to leave the spiked brush down so that the water drains off of it.
Cleaning the Tangle Teezer Brush
Tangle Teezer brushes collect less dirt, but they also need to be cleaned regularly. To do this thoroughly, make a simple cleaning solution consisting of one teaspoon of baking soda, one teaspoon of shampoo, and one cup of water. Clean the brush and spikes with a toothbrush, then rinse under running water
The best way to dry it will be to wipe the spikes in a quick-dry towel or paper towel. You can also lay it spiked down on the towel to let the water run off on its own and absorb into the fabric.
Washing a natural bristle brush
Natural bristle brushes are becoming increasingly popular. They are suitable for long hair, but not everyone knows how to clean them. First get rid of any residue from brushing your hair. Then make a washing solution consisting of a few drops of tea tree oil and water.
Do not scrub your brush very hard as this can affect the natural bristles. It only needs to be sprayed with the previously made solution and then gently wiped and placed with a comb to dry.
Natural brushes are a little more difficult to clean, but they also pull out less hair when combing
Which hairbrushes can be disinfected?
All plastic brushes can be cleaned with disinfectant. Brushes with natural bristles should be cleaned very gently and therefore the disinfecting liquids may be too strong. Disinfection should be carried out mainly on the spikes, that is where the scalp touches the brush. It is worth checking beforehand whether the prints or paint on the brush are resistant to liquids with alcohol.
Why is it so important to clean your hairbrush?
It goes without saying that a hairbrush without proper cleaning looks unattractive to say the least. However, it is not only the appearance of this hair styling tool that is important. Frequently used hair brushes leave behind not only hair but also dead scalp oils, sebum and the remains of styling products.
If you rarely wash your hairbrush, you unfortunately run the risk of skin problems or even infections and allergies. Keeping your hair brush clean is therefore very important. An unclean brush can also lead to oily or limp hair. Do you care about hair hygiene? Take care of a clean hair brush as well. Wash it before you plan to wash your hair and your hairstyle will keep its beautiful look.
