We all have been guilty at some point of letting a bunch of hair collect in the bed of our hair brushes. And there's something very satisfying about peeling the pile off of the brush and throwing it away- leaving your brush clean, and ready to use again.

But are they really that clean?

Have you ever really sanitized your hair brush? If your answer is no then don’t feel ashamed because most people DON’T!

Here’s how to get rid of all the product build up, oil and bacteria that are lurking in the crevices of your brushes.

Step one

Remove all hair and debris from the brush.

Step two

Wipe bristles and the bed of the brush with a warm damp wash cloth.

Step Three

Fill up sink or bowl with warm water and anti-bacterial soap. Completely Immerse brushes into water and let sit for 15 minutes

Step Four

Empty sink or bowl and rinse thoroughly until suds subside

**If you are cleaning a paddle brush, squeeze the bed of the brush until all excess water comes out of the vent hole**

Step Five

Lay the brushes bristle side down on a towel to dry. If you are in a hurry you can use your blow dryer to speed up the process

That wasn’t so hard, was it? Make sure you clean them every 2-3 months to make sure there isn’t any harmful bacteria or product build up growing on or in your brushes. Your scalp and hair will thank you!

I have never ever thought about sanitizing my hair brush but it makes perfect sense too. I can see the build up on my brush and can’t imagine the bacteria that’s on it. I do brush my hair when it’s dirty a lot yuck
