  1. Remove the hair strands

    Use a comb to comb through the bristles and loosen the hair strands, then remove the hair from the brush. A pen or pencil also works well to loosen the hair.

  2. Wash and rinse the brush

    Squeeze a few drops of shampoo onto a toothbrush, and scrub the bristles and head of the hairbrush. Rinse the brush in water to remove the soap.

  3. Dry the brush overnight

    Place your hairbrush in a ventilated area, and let it dry overnight. Make sure the bristles are facing down, so water can drain off the brush.
