5 easy steps to clean your hairbrush

Do you clean your hair brush once in a while? No? It’s time to do it right now and it’s super easy!
For a long time, I only cleaned my brush by picking the hairs out every day. And sometimes I would take the brush with me under the shower and used shampoo and a toothbrush to clean my hairbrush. But it’s a lot of work. And I never wanted to clean that way. It took ages! And then I came up with the simplest idea ever. And since then I’ve been trying to clean my brush more often.

It’s super easy.

Step 1: take your brush and get rid of the hairs that are still stuck in it.
Step 2: fill the sink with water and add a bit of shampoo
Step 3: put the brush in the water
Step 4: walk away and leave the brush in the water. It depends on how dirty your brush is how long you leave it in the water. But 10 to 15 minutes always works for me.
Step 5: get the brush out of the water and check if your brush is clean and let it dry on a towel. If the brush is not clean, which often happens to me, I use a toothbrush to clean in between the little tooth of my hairbrush to get it clean. Rinse it off and then let it dry.

Et voila!

You’ve got a clean brush! Simple and I think very effective. Especially if you’re dealing with greasy hair like I do. I think keeping the brush clean will also help to keep my hair cleaner. And it’s just nicer to pick up my brush and not having all the ‘dust’ between those teeth.
