After a very short time, not only hair but also dirt and residues from styling products collect in our hairbrush. We'll tell you how you can clean your brush in no time so that it looks new again.
Anyone with a long mane knows exactly how quickly the hairbrush mutates into a fluffy ball of wool. But not only hair collects in the brush: Dirt, flakes of skin, and styling residues such as hairspray and gel also gradually accumulate in the hairbrush.
For the sake of our hair and scalp, we should clean our brushes regularly. If we comb our hair with a dirty brush, we transfer everything that has collected in the brush directly to our mane, which can then appear greasy more quickly.
That's why we're going to show you the tips you can use to quickly get your hairbrush clean again.
Before you start cleaning it more thoroughly, you should remove any tangled hair from your brush. You can easily remove this from the bristles with your fingers or tweezers and then dispose of it in the trash. Warning: do not throw the ball of hair in the toilet or sink. This can quickly clog the pipes.
If the hair is caught too tightly between the bristles, you can also use a handle comb to pull it out of the brush. If that doesn't work either, you can try carefully cutting the stuck hair with scissors and then pulling it out with your fingers.
Tip: It's best to remove the hair in your hairbrush every three to four days. This will prevent them from getting too caught in the brush.
The brush should also be cleaned regularly with water. The detergent depends on the material of your brush. There are two variants:

How often you should thoroughly clean your hairbrush depends in large part on how often you use styling products. Beauty experts recommend about once a month. If you use hairspray, foam, or gel every day, you can wet clean your brush once a week.
