Maintaining your beard brush
A brush, comb, or perhaps both are frequently needed when taking care of your beard. That majestic mane you have is a result of these tools.
Have you considered cleaning and maintaining the brushes and combs you use, though?
Your brush or comb will gather hair and muck if you use them frequently. You wouldn’t want to comb or brush your god-tier beard with a dirty tool, would you?
Furthermore, if properly maintained, high-quality grooming tools can last a very long time.
We’ll go through how to clean your beard brush in this post so that you can keep your grooming supplies clean and looking good.
Cleaning Equipment You’ll Need
In addition to your used beard brush, you will need the following tools and cleaning products to clean your grooming tools:
Cleaning the rake and brush Beard conditioner Beard oil A worn-out toothbrush that has been cleaned Printed towels
The Best Way to Clean a Beard Brush
Both Tampico bristle brushes and boar bristle brushes can be used using the following instructions:
Step 1: Clean the bristles of the beard brush from hair
Use a brush cleaning rake to comb out the hairs and debris while holding the dirty brush sideways.
Focus on raking the hairs closest to the tip of the bristles during your initial few strokes. As you comb the hair out, place the rake’s tines approximately midway down the length of the bristles.
Let’s concentrate on raking out the hairs at the point where the bristles and the brush body meet after you have removed the hairs close to the bristle tips. To remove the hairs and debris, place the rake’s tines as near as possible to the root of the bristles.
Use your fingers to pull out any stubborn hairs that are stuck in the bristles.
To prevent a significant buildup of hair and dirt, complete this task once a week or so.
Step 2: Thoroughly wash the bristles
After cleaning the brush of any hair accumulation, moisten the bristles by dipping them in a bowl of warm water or running them under warm water.
Add a few drops of beard shampoo to the bristles after that, and use your fingers or an old, clean toothbrush to massage the shampoo into the bristles.
How to clean a beard brush:
NOTE: It’s important to remember not to saturate a wooden brush’s body in water when cleaning it. You can lightly dampen it, but if you allow the water to penetrate the wood, the wood will splinter and crack.
1. Rinse the shampoo out completely after cleansing for around 20 to 30 seconds. Dry the brush’s body and bristles using a fresh towel.
2. Shake the brush vigorously to get rid of any extra water that could have gotten inside the bristle plugs.
3. The towel should be spread out, and the brush should be placed on it, bristle-side down. The brush needs to dry overnight.
4. If you use a brush to put beard oil on your facial hair, you should clean the bristles of the brush regularly.
Every two to three weeks, you should give your brush a thorough cleaning. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend deep cleaning your brush once a week.
If you don’t, the remaining oil will build up in the bristles, trapping dirt and other debris. Using a dirty brush to comb your beard is likely to irritate your skin and even result in acne.
So be sure to thoroughly clean your brush in order to prevent harming your skin.
