{How To} Clean your hair tools


By TheKink

Cleaning the tools you use on your natural hair is an important task that should be a part of any hair care regimen. One of the benefits of cleaning your hair tools keeps your hair cleaner longer and is a simple enough task to do on your wash days.

How to:

  • Fill your sink or tub with warm water and add your cleanser.
  • Allow your tools to soak in the soap and water solution for awhile to loosen hair or debris.
  • Use a brush to scrub your tools clean, and a fine-tooth comb to rake any brushes you may use clean.
  • Use a towel to lay your clean tools on to dry

That’s it! I’m sure most of you know how to do this, but for those who don’t, or do not clean your tools regularly, let this be your reminder.

– Instead of using the brush you use in your hair to clean with, use an old toothbrush or a nail brush.
– Add a little vinegar to your solution to sterilize your tools. To get rid of the acidic smell, add a drop of your favorite essential oil.
– If you don’t have time to soak your hair tools, make sure to wet them first to loosen any hair or debris.

Do you have any tips you’d like to share, or to add to this one? Let us know below.
