Every hair lover has their favorite brush, but did you know there’s a vital step to your hair care routine you may be missing? It is important to wash and care for your favorite brushes on a regular basis in order to keep your hair or hair extensions looking as fabulous as ever. Proper hair brush care keeps your styling tools free of dust, oil and hair products for remy hair which can build up over time, affecting the way your brush performs.
To prevent build up from making your hair drab, RemySoft recommends cleaning your brush every few weeks or more if you use hair products for remy hair, as these will cause more build up. Hair brush care only takes a few minutes so there’s no excuse for not keeping your brush as nice and clean as your favorite hair extensions. Just follow our easy hair brush care guide to keep your styling tools in top shape!
First, you’ll need to grab a few things. You probably already have these tools on hand in your bathroom:
- Your brush
- Pen/pencil/makeup brush (something with a tapered end)
- Spray bottle with a mix of 1 part water and 1 part vinegar
- A bowl
- Sulfate-free cleansing or clarifying shampoo
Now that you have everything you need, we need to get rid of all that hair stuck in your brush! Use your pen/pencil/makeup brush underneath the hair and gently pull the dislodger upward until the hair loosens. Using your scissors, cut through the middle of the hair, carefully avoiding the bristles of your brush. Then simply remove all the extra hair! Repeat as many times as necessary until your brush is hair free.
Take your spray bottle filled with water and vinegar and spray this mixture into your brush. After sitting for about five minutes, this magic mixture will begin to dislodge all of the buildup and excess hair products for remy hair on your brush.
While your magic mixture is getting all the gunk off your brush, go ahead and fill up your bowl with some warm water and a tablespoon of your sulfate-free clarifying shampoo, such as RemySoft Moisturelab Hydrating Cleanser.
Place your brush into the warm, soapy water and wash the brush and bristles thoroughly to get any remaining residue. Once your hair brush is free of all products and oils, rinse with warm water and allow it to air dry.
