Keeping your hairbrush clean is essential for maintaining scalp health and promoting hair growth. Dead skin cells, product buildup, and loose hair can all accumulate in your brush and harm your freshly washed hair. Here’s a quick and efficient way to clean your detangling brush:
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Comb or Hairbrush Cleaning Tool
- Bowl or Sink with Stopper
- Baking Soda
- Unused Toothbrush
1. Remove the hair:
Use your fingers, hairbrush cleaning tool, or comb to pull out all the hair tangled in the brush bristles. If the hair is difficult to remove, you can use scissors to cut through it. If there are dust clumps that are difficult to remove, use tweezers to pluck them off the bristles. It’s essential to develop the habit of removing hair from your brush after each use. A clogged brush can damage your hair, resulting in more breakage or shedding. Also, removing hair after each use will make the cleaning process much more manageable.
2. Soak the brush:
Add 1/3 cup of baking soda and a few pumps of shampoo to warm water in a bowl or sink. Place the brush in soapy water, ensuring that the bristles are submerged, and swish the brush in the solution to create suds. Allow it to soak for 15-20 minutes.
3. Scrub away the debris:
After soaking your brush, use a toothbrush to scrub between the bristles and along the base of the brush. Most of the debris should be easier to remove since it is in the sudsy solution. If there is excess buildup, you can try adding some dry baking soda and continue scrubbing. The baking soda will act as a gentle abrasive to remove the gunk.
4. Rinse and air dry:
Rinse the brush thoroughly under running water to remove residue and soap. Make sure to shake out all the excess water and lay the brush on a towel to air dry.
5. Good as new!
Your brush should be as good as new! You’ll be amazed at how much healthier your hair will look and feel. Clean your brush every other week for optimal results.
