How to Clean Hair Brushes and Hair Combs

Part of your proper hygiene is hair brushing, so this means that you need to regularly wash your hair brushes and hair combs. This doesn’t have to be a chore. Here’s an easy way to clean your brushes and combs on a weekly basis:

First, clean out all the hair, every single strand, from your brushes and combs. (Discard the excess hair.)

Then fill your bathroom sink with warm water, mixed with some hair shampoo. Make sure that you put the shampoo in the sink while it is still filling with water. You need plenty of lather to get your hair brushes and hair combs clean go here for more.

Clean Hair Brushes

Once the sink is full of lathered-up water, place all your hair brushes and hair combs into the water and let them sit for around 5 or 10 minutes. Soaking your hair brushes and hair combs will loosen the dirt from the brushes’ bristles and comb’s teeth.

After you’ve allowed your hair brushes and hair combs to soak for a bit, begin the cleaning process by using your hair brushes to scrub the dirt out from between the teeth of your hair combs. Scrub diligently and rinse in the lathered water as necessary.

Next, use one hair brush to scrub another hair brush and so on until all your hair brushes and hair combs are clean. Drain the lathered water and rinse your hair brushes and hair combs by placing them underneath the water faucet.

You might want to fill your sink again, this time using a small amount of hair conditioner in with the water. (You might need to stir the conditioner into the water as the sink fills to help distribute the hair conditioner.) This process will help keep your brushes and combs pliable.

Let your brushes and combs soak for a bit in the conditioner water and then remove them and again rinse them by holding them underneath the water faucet. Gently shake the excess water from your hair brushes and hair combs and then lay them on a towel to dry.

Once your hair brushes and hair combs are dry, feel free to use them. Repeat this process weekly to help keep your hair brushes and hair combs the cleanest they can be.

*If you have loose hair left in your sink after it drains, don’t try to rinse it down the drain. Hair buildup will only create a clogged-up sink. Take a piece of toilet tissue and wipe the loose hair up and toss it into the trash.
