How To Clean Your Hairbrush (and How Often)
March 13, 2023
It's time for a chat, babes. When was the last time you cleaned your hairbrush? Don't worry, this is a judgement-free space — were here to help! If our makeup brushes are constantly being cleansed and cared for, why not our hairbrushes too!?
Should I Really Be Cleaning My Hairbrush?
We get it bae, cleaning a hairbrush doesn’t sound like the most exciting thing to do, but your hair will thank you later! Think of how often you use your brush on dirty hair days, after adding tons of dry shampoo, and to put it up in a slick bun when it's too far gone.
Dirt, oil, and product residue are left behind on brushes every day. So if you're reusing that, it defeats the fab wash day strands. So don’t walk, run to your bathroom to grab your hairbrush and let’s get to cleaning.
How Often Should I Wash My Hairbrush?
We recommend giving your hairbrush a much needed bath about once a month! However, a quick rinse and scrub once a week never hurt anybody ;) Product residue can buildup on the handles and backside of your brush as well, so don’t forget to cleanse these areas too!
How to Clean Your Hairbrush
We've crafted a simple process on how to transform your grimy hair tool into a clean and sparkling tool that will benefit your hair. Plus, if you need a visual, watch how easy this process is on our TikTok!
Step 1: Soak Your Hairbrush
Mix together a solution of one-part warm water and one-part white distilled vinegar in a medium sized bowl. Place your hairbrush into the solution and let it soak for a few hours, or even better, overnight. Now put on your PJs, a fab hair mask, and go catch up on some beauty rest while your brush is being cleaned.
Step 2: Pick Out The Hair and Scrub Your Brush
Morning bae, how’d you sleep!? Now let’s get back to cleaning! Scrub your hairbrush using a toothbrush to get rid of all the hair and grime. Be sure to thoroughly scrub in between the bristles where the product tends to build up. Once your brush starts looking shiny and new again, rinse under warm water and wave goodbye to all the dirt and residue.
Step 3: Dry Your Hairbrush
Place your brush face down on a towel and let it dry. Once your brush is completely dry, it’s ready to use again! Notice a difference? Your hair sure does!!
