Use the end of the rat-tail comb, a pen or a pick to get between the hair and the brush pad. Loosen the hair from the bottom of the brush, working your way up.

Combine 1 cup of water with 1 teaspoon of shampoo and 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a bowl.
Dip a toothbrush into the cleaning solution, and gently apply it to the bristles and bristle pad of the hairbrush. Clean the outer edge of the brush as well as each bristle, starting at the bottom and brushing in an upward motion.
Thoroughly rinse the brush, and lay the brush flat with the bristles facing down to dry.
