Your hairdressing tools such as clips, brushes, kirbies, combs etc should be washed twice a month. This will prevent bacteria and also increase the life of your brushes so you don’t have to go buy new ones all the time. Think about this.. you just washed your hair but your using a dirty comb or brush ? So get them cleaned πŸ˜‰

First off you will need a large bowl which will serve as the “bath” Then you will need a towel to dry all your hair stuff with.

Try and pull off all the trapped hair with your hands first, use a toothpick or needle to get hairs that are wrapped around.

Add warm water to your large bowl and drop in some baby shampoo or any other mild shampoo you can find. Swirl your combs and brushes for 10 minutes in the water. Use a toothbrush to scrub at them them once finished scrubbing run under a hot tap till all the shampoo is off.

Lay out all your tools and brushes on a towel and leave to air dry, you can also speed it up a little by using a hairdryer, wrap your brushes and tools in the towel so they are covered and blast the hairdryer on it.

Wooden brushes sadly cannot be cleaned this way as the wood can get damaged! It’s best to use baby shampoo and the toothbrush to just gently clean the bristles and use a towel to wipe.  

For small combs a cotton bud does the trick, dip it into the bowl of shampoo and warm water and just clean away !

Brushes that have cushioning below the handles should not be wet for long periods. Avoid soaking these brushes to disinfect them and stick to only giving them a mild rub down with a mild cleaner and water.

Happy cleaning πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ›

How to clean your make-up brushes step by step πŸ‘€πŸ˜πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

You should aim to clean your makeup brushes at least once a week, unclean brushes can cause breakouts, skin irritation and worsen acne 😯

What’s the point in putting on fresh new makeup with dirty old brushe’s… ewww

What you will need :

Your sink

Baby wipes

Baby shampoo

Towel

Step 1

Rinse your makeup brushes under the cold tap for a few seconds then lay each of them out on the towel. This will rid the dirt from the handles. Give them a wipe with the baby wipes all over the handle.

Step 2

Pick up each individual brush and put under the hot tap ( not too hot) give the bristles an bit of a bath just like you would washing your own hair. Get your baby shampoo and shampoo the bristles! Try to hold the brush pointing down the way to avoid hot water getting on the connecting part of your brush as this can loosen your brush and break it by melting the glue that holds it together.

Step 3

After shampooing all your brushes under the warm tap with baby shampoo and laying each of them down on the towel, do it again this time with cold water and no shampoo. This step is just a final rinse to get rid of residue. Then go over each finally with a bay wipe. They will still be damp.

Step 4

Parcel your brushes in the towel and towel dry them as best you can then you can leave them on the towel to air dry, or leave near a heater. You can also use a hairdryer if you want them dry fast and …like wallahh that’s it !
