Remove Hair: Before you begin cleaning, use a comb or your fingers to remove the tangled hair from the bristles. This will make the cleaning process easier.
Prepare a Cleaning Solution: Fill a bowl with warm water and add a gentle shampoo or mild liquid soap. Swirl the water to create a soapy solution.
Soak the Brush: Place the hairbrush, bristle-side down, into the soapy water. Let it soak for about 15-30 minutes. This will help loosen dirt, oils, and product buildup.
Scrub Bristles: Use an old toothbrush or a small cleaning brush to gently scrub the bristles and the base of the hairbrush. Pay extra attention to any areas with stubborn residue.
Rinse: Rinse the hairbrush thoroughly under running water to remove the soap and debris. Make sure all the soap is washed out from between the bristles.
Disinfect (Optional): If you want to disinfect the brush, you can soak it for a few minutes in a solution of water and a small amount of vinegar or rubbing alcohol.
Dry Properly: Shake off excess water and pat the brush dry with a clean towel. Allow it to air dry completely with the bristle side facing down to prevent water from pooling in the base,
