Hi, my name's Joanna and I'm a hairstylist, and today I'm going to show you a few ways that you can clean out your bristled brushes, so let's get started. The first thing you're going to need is a brush cleaner. You can pick one of these up at any local beauty supply store and the thing I like about this is is that there's two sides, one to clean out the finer ends like the finer tooth combs and brushes, and this is for like a paddle brush. So, I'm just going to show you, how to start, we'll start with the paddle brush. You just take it, and when there's, if there's hair in it, you take the wire side and just brush through the bristles, getting out all that hair and product buildup and everything. You just kind of clean it out and then it just comes out super easy and then you switch to the smaller side for the finer side of a round brush and you take the fine side and you just scrape it out 'cause you don't want to scrape towards your hands, you scrape out, just like this. The hair comes off and the next step you will need to do is take a little bit of bleach in your water and just soak 'em for like 10 minutes, it's just going to disinfect and get all of that product buildup and everything out and then you have a nice clean brush ready to use for next time. Thanks for watchin'!
