Why is it important to clean hair brushes?
Many people often have a question: Do brushes really need to be cleaned?
Yes, there is no doubt about it.

1. When cleaning hair tools, it's easy to forget the brush you use almost every day.
In fact, they can be filled with lint, and grease, and weave with closure.
Cleaning your hairbrush regularly avoids bacteria, mold, or other organisms that may grow on the brush and transfer to your Burgundy bundles hair, thereby avoiding tinea capitis, scabies, and staph infections.
2. When your hairbrush gets dirty, all of the debris and product residues may end up back in your HD lace wigs.
3. If your brush is dirty, it may take longer to dry your hair and cause tangles during combing.

When should you clean your hairbrushes?
As one of the dirtier items in the bathroom drawer, we often find old, matted hair, sebum, dead skin cells, and remnants of hair products building up in the hairbrush.
When you start to notice a gray or white film on your brush, it's definitely time to clean it.

How often should you clean your hairbrush?
A clean brush will not only style your hair better, but it will also help it last longer.
So how often should we clean our brushes?
The frequency of brushing depends on brush type, frequency of use, and hair type.
For most hair brushes and combs, thorough cleaning once a month is sufficient.
But if your hair is long or shedding a lot, it should be cleaned once a week.
Especially if you see a lot of buildup on the brush, it could mean you're using too much hair product.

What tools are needed to clean the hairbrush:
1. Soap;
* You don't have to buy any special cleaners for combs and brushes.
Using any soap for synthetic brushes is great, but dish soap, shampoo, or body wash is a better choice.
* Of course, if you have a clarifying shampoo, that would be the best choice, as it is designed to remove oily residues and deposits.
* If you want to try a DIY method that eliminates the buildup, we recommend adding baking soda to the mixture.
* For brushes made from natural materials such as bristles or wood, there's nothing better than using a mild shampoo that doesn't contain sulfate.
2. Clean toothbrush;
3. A sink;
4. Needle tail comb;
5. A towel;

How to clean the brush?
Step 1. Remove the hair
Start by removing hair from the brush using the end of a needle tail comb, your fingers, or tweezers.
Step 2. Soak the brushes
Fill the sink with warm water, then add some soap to the warm water until a foaming solution forms.
Soak the brush in the solution for 10 minutes to break down stubborn clumps.
If you have a wooden hairbrush, do not soak it. Instead, briefly dip the brush bristle side down.
Then use a clean toothbrush to scrub between the bristles and around the handle.
If hair products accumulate too much, dip a damp toothbrush into some dry baking soda and scrub the brush. This will remove stickiness.
Step 3. Rinse and wipe dry
The next step is to rinse the brush under running water to remove any soap residue.
Lay it on a towel with the bristles down to dry.
If you're in a hurry, you can even blow dry it on low heat.
Note: Once water is present in the brush, it may cause bacteria to grow.

5 Mistakes to Avoid When cleaning hairbrushes
1. Skip regular cleaning.
If you have long hair, use a lot of hair products, or have dandruff or other scalp conditions, it's best to clean your hairbrush at least once a month and more often.
2. Soak a wooden hairbrush.
Unlike plastic handles, wooden hairbrushes should never be submerged in water.
Water can cause wood deterioration and loss of bristles.
Soaking a wood-handled hairbrush can cause the wood to split and the bristles to loosen.
Therefore, never soak a wood comb either!
If your wooden hairbrush gets wet by accident, do not dry it with a high-temperature hair dryer.
Use cold air if you must, or let the wood air dry.
3. Use a high-temperature soaking brush.
Do not use overheated water or heat when cleaning and drying hair brushes.
After all, synthetic brushes can deform or melt.
4. Disinfect natural bristles with alcohol.
Keep in mind that isopropyl alcohol dries out the natural oils in the boars' bristles.
If you feel the brush needs to be sanitized, gently spray it with a disinfecting spray to kill bacteria.
5. Ignore the controller.
In the process of cleaning the hairbrush, don't forget to clean the brush handle and brush head!
Handles can accumulate bacteria from your hands!
