Brush maintenance steps
Here are the different maintenance steps for your brush:
1. Preparing your brush
The first step is to remove the hair on your brush.
We advise you to do this daily. For this, the most suitable is to do it by hand or with a wide-toothed comb. Indeed, combs with too tight teeth can damage or even tear the fibers of your brush.
To wash your brush, pass it quickly under lukewarm water and use your usual shampoo, which will be the most suitable for removing the sebum from the fibers of your hairbrush. Then rinse thoroughly with clean water. Be careful not to use too hot water and not to soak your brush in water.
After rinsing comes drying! To do this, let it air dry, hair down. Be careful not to leave it on a damp or heated surface, such as a radiator.
How often should you maintain your hairbrush?
We advise you to do the first step daily, that is to remove the hair after each use. The rest depends on several factors. In general, a monthly wash is sufficient.
If you use very moisturizing products for your hair or if your hair is oily in nature then you can wash your brush more regularly, 2 to 3 times a month.
What precautions should be taken for a wooden brush?
L'Artisan Brossier hairbrushes are made from natural and sustainable materials, so there are specific precautions to take.
The handles are made of wood, it is a material sensitive to water. Even though our brushes are treated, they should not be left in water or on a wet surface. Finally, as a safety measure, do not leave your brush on a surface that gives off heat, such as radiators.
