While I was Spring cleaning I decided to clean our hairbrushes too. I thought others might like to know how I do this, so here we go!
Don't laugh at my ancient comb, I've had it since beauty school...oh and that's for about 20 years, no joke! I love it, so I keep it! Weirdo huh? LOL! Anyways, I decided to give it a good bath too while I was at it.
You will need baking soda, vinegar, a few drops of dish soap and warm water to get your brush looking new again.
Um eeeew! So gross and discusting, but this is what happens when you use product in your hair! Let's get these grubbies clean!
First, you will want to clean all the hair and debris out of your brush the best you can. Then rinse with warm water.
Sprinkle on a small amount of baking soda.
Now drizzle on the vinegar and watch that bubbling action go to work. Let it sit until the bubbles stop. At this point you will want to either scrub two brushes together or use an old toothbrush to get in there and loosen the stuck on hair products.
Now fill a dish with a few drops of dish soap and warm water and soak.
I waited 10 minutes when I cleaned mine.
After 10 minutes you will notice that the soap bubbles are gone and the water is VERY dirty! Eeeew again!
Remove the brush from the soaking bowl and rinse with warm water. If your brush is like mine, you will need to make sure to get all the water out of it. Mine soaked up quite a bit of water so I just turned it over with the bristles down and squeezed on it until all the water came out of it. Lay it on a towel bristles down to dry.
Now its like I have a new brush again. This brush happens to be about 4 years old, but now it looks new again!
It doesn't have to be done all at once. It is a slow process in the works!C-ya next time!
