Bridal hair ideas from our award-winning stylist Sophie Hanson at Hair Way to Heaven – Bridal Hair Ups
To keep a clean hair brush you should wash it once a month or so with shampoo to remove dirt, oil, and any built-up hair products. Holding the handle, swirl the head of the brush around in a bowl of warm water. Next, put a few drops of gentle shampoo on the bristles of a toothbrush and use the toothbrush to scrub the bristles and base of the hairbrush.
If you haven’t cleaned your brush or comb in a long time, it’s a good idea to disinfect the brush or comb in vinegar or rubbing alcohol. When you’re done, you’ll be left with neat and clean brushes and combs.
