Today I will talk about a subject not often discussed: the hairbrush. A necessity in our day-to-day lives, we often don’t give it much thought. At most, we occasionally remove the build up of hairs. However, our holy brushes accumulate much more than just hair: dead skin cells, dust particles and other debris all gather in the bristles. It is important to clean and wash your brush occasionally to prevent these "extras" from being brushed through your beautiful hair.
How to do this? Without toxic chemicals, of course. Follow the tips below:
1. For plastic or metal brushes, add a small splash of coconut soap and a pinch of baking soda to a glass of water. For wooden brushes, add a few drops of natural oil instead.
2. Apply the mixture to an old toothbrush and scrub the base of the hairbrush thoroughly, in circular motions.
3. Place the hairbrush on a clean towel, facing down, and leave there until dry. Voila!
