Many people often ask their hairdresser how to use & clean a round hair brush. This product is a useful tool when it comes to straightening, curling and general styling. However, because it has a unique round style, it can be quite difficult to keep clean. The key is to wash it regularly to ensure there is no buildup of hair and chemicals such as hairspray and conditioner on the bristles.
To protect your scalp, you should always check that the brushing product is washed with soap and water before you use it. Removing all the trapped hair from between the bristles is the first task. You can use the handle end of a tail comb, or some other long fine object to pry the hairs from between the bristles. Remove as much debris as possible before proceeding to the next step.
For the next step, you will require some shampoo. Apply a small amount of shampoo, while turning the brushing product to spread it around. Add some water to it and massage the shampoo into the bristles all around the teeth. Once you are sure all the bristles have been washed, rinse with lukewarm water.
Next put some warm water in your sink or a basin and tip in half a cup of baking soda. Once the baking soda has dissolved completely, add your hairbrush. Leave the brush to soak for fifteen minutes to remove any left-over particles of products. Rinse the hairbrush thoroughly and leave to dry. Your comb is now clean and ready to use.
Once you have finished shampooing and conditioning your hair, use a towel to soak up the moisture so it is just slightly damp. Spray your strands evenly with a heat protection product to prevent damage when blow drying. Using your comb and starting at the front of your head, pick up small sections of your strands and blow dry.
Using a hairbrush with a larger circumference allows you to add volume to your hairstyle. This is a better choice if you have a long hairstyle. Using a comb with a smaller circumference is best for producing a smooth sleeker look. Any size comb can be used to produce curls and waves.
Most professional stylists provide advice on how to use & clean the hair brush. A wooden round brush is often recommended because they tend to be made from good-quality materials. They are easy to use and will last a longer than those made from inferior materials.
