Sharing is caring!

I looked at my hair brush the other day and realized how absolutely disgusting it was!

I thought about how ridiculous it was that I was washing my hair and then putting a dirty brush in it immediately. That made no sense! I thought I would figure out how to clean hair brushes so they looked brand new without taking a ton of scrubbing. I think I figured it out!


How To Clean Hair Brushes (The Easy Way)

The first thing you need to do (which is something you probably already do on occasion) is get the hair out. Use a pair of scissors to really dig down deep is the best way to get it all.

Then, grab a big bowl and fill it with warm water. Take your favorite shampoo and squeeze some in – about two tablespoons worth. Take a wisk and mix it all up (otherwise the shampoo will just sink to the bottom).

Place your brush in the water and let it soak for about 15 minutes.

When it’s all done, take it out and if you notice a dirty spot, just wipe it off with a rag. No scrubbing at all! I had a spot of foundation on mine that came right off.

Squeeze and shake your brush and put it out in the sun to dry.
