Hi guys! So I had a question about how I wash my hair brushes! Since I often tease my hair (it is super fine!) & have flyaways I often use quite a bit of product. I do have a new favorite duo for getting product OUT of my hair which I'll talk about in a future post but for now this will have to do!
Before you even wash your brushes, make sure you get all the hair out of them. I like to use my teasing end of my comb to do this! Try to get every piece out!
The first thing I do is fill up my sink with warm-hot water. None of the brushes shown here are wood so I know I can soak them. If you are afraid hot water will mess up your brushes, don't risk it. Just because I do it doesn't mean you have to. What I do find is that the hotter water tends to separate the gunk off the tools much faster.
So you'll notice that I throw a washcloth in the bottom of my sink. We live in military housing & unfortunately they don't care much about items wrong with the house unless it is life or death. The washcloth is to help my sink hold water because although our house is lovely, the fixtures are not.
Another question I got was how often do I wash my brushes! Unfortunately, & I feel so unhelpful saying this, but I do it when I feel like they need it! I don't have excessively oily hair & I do go through phases of using hairspray vs. gel vs. whatever. So basically...I wash them when I think they need it!
