A hairbrush is useful for detangling and smoothing strands of hair. It can also become soiled fairly quickly due to the fact that it absorbs the oil, dirt, debris, and styling products that you use on your hair.

Is it necessary to clean your brush every day?

Try to clean your brush every 2 to 3 weeks if you don’t use much hair product.
Remove hair from the bristles every couple of days to make cleaning easier.

Take a look at some of the most effective methods for cleaning your hairbrush.

In order to keep your hairbrush clean, what is the reason?
Even if you don’t use your hairbrush very often, it has the ability to absorb water. As a result, the bristles of this brush can collect a wide range of contaminants, including those from your hair and from the environment.

Brushes can become clogged with hair care products such as leave-in conditioner, gel or hairspray. Every time you brush, you are transferring dead skin cells from your brush to your hair, which can lead to hair loss.

In addition, hair sheds on a daily basis. Normal hair shedding ranges from 50 to 100 per day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). The brush’s base tends to collect a lot of hair.

Soot, dust, and other debris from the environment can also accumulate on your hairbrush over time. Oil or sticky hair products can make it even more difficult for these particles to adhere to the bristles of your hairbrush.

This residue can build up in your hair if you don’t clean your hairbrush on a regular basis. As a result, a dirty hairbrush may struggle to do its job and give your hair the best possible appearance.

These are the steps you should take to clean your hairbrush.
It doesn’t take long to clean a hairbrush. It will be much simpler the next time around if you already know how to do it.

How to clean hair brushes Really quick and Easy

To get started, you only require the following items:

  • Bowl of hot water
  • Gentle shampoo in the bathroom sink
    Sodium bicarbonate (optional)
    scissors,
  • a rat tail comb, and
  • an old toothbrush (optional)
    It doesn’t matter if your brush is made of wood or plastic; the cleaning process is the same.

First step;

1.Remove the hair

To remove hair from the brush’s base, use the long, pointed end of a rat tail comb. You can use a pen, pencil, or even an ice pick as a substitute if you don’t have a rat tail.
Hair that gets caught in the bristles can be cut away with scissors.

2. Sterilize


Warm water can be poured into a bowl or the sink. Swish water with a few drops of mild shampoo to make suds. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of baking soda for additional cleaning power. Make sure the water is well-stirred.
Soak the brush head and bristles in water.

3. Take a few minutes to let it soak in.

You can use soapy water to clean the bristles on a brush with soft padding at its base, so long as you don’t touch the padding.
Wooden brushes should not be completely submerged in water. Wood and finish could be harmed if this is done. Simply submerge the bristles like for a brush with a padded base.


4. Scrub

Dip and scrub the brush a few times before using it. Srubbing is a great way to get rid of excess oil and dead skin cells. The majority of the buildup will be removed if your brush isn’t too soiled.


5. For additional cleaning, use a toothbrush.


Using an old toothbrush to clean the brush’s base and bristles may be necessary for extremely dirty brushes.


Using soapy water, thoroughly scrub each bristle of the hairbrush to remove any residue. Work your way up from the bristle’s base. Remove any residue by scrubbing the brush’s other end.


6. As a final step, rinse and air dry


Rinse your hairbrush under a stream of cool water after you’ve finished cleaning it. Alternatively, you can dampen the brush’s base with water and then dry it with a cloth.
A clean cloth or towel should be placed on top of the brush while it is drying.
