Time to love your brushes! How often should I clean my brushes

We know its a bit of a chore, but it is essential to keep your tools clean to prevent bacterial and product build up. However, with the extra day off this weekend – one might just fit it in.

Anyway, In the perfect world we should wash our brushes once a week, but being realistic if you can wash your brushes at least once a month you are heading in the right direction. Here are few pointers to keep you brushes in tip top condition.

1. With warm water saturate the brush hairs only.

2. Use a tiny pea size amount of mild shampoo then massage into the brush hair into the palm of your hand. Do this until the shampoo has been completely dispersed among the brush hairs.

3. Rinse the brush thoroughly until the water runs clear.

4. Repeat as necessary.

5. After rinsing apply gentle pressure to remove the excess water and maintain the brush shape.

6. Place on a towel and lay flat to dry. Never dry your brush in an upright position as it can cause damage, it will loosen the glue that binds the brushes and lead to hair loss.
