    Default tips on cleaning hairbrushes

    I am looking for a tip to clean a hair brush. It has some build up
    from gel,hairspray,and natural hair oils on it. Any ideas on how to
    get it off other than picking it off by hand?

    I use shampoo when I clean mine and I just use two of them and rub together.
    They clean each other. Soaking might help if there is alot of build-up.

    Shampoo them with the shampoo you use on your hair, rubbing well between the
    rows of bristles. Use a comb to remove hair buildup.

    Squirt some shampoo into your sink and soak them for a couple of hours. You'll
    need to get as much hair out as possible before soaking, but they should be

    pretty clean afterwards. Reminds me, I need to do the same.

    soaking in sudsy ammonia after combing out hair works well for combs and
    brushes

    Get as much of the hair off the brush using a comb, then soak in shampoo for an
    hour or so and rinse.

    Ok here is what i did.
    I put some baking soda and a couple of small squirts of shampoo in a pan of
    water with the brush in it and boiled if for like 20 minutes. All i had to do
    was take the brush out smack it against the sink a few times and it got most of
    the build up off. Than i turn the faucet on spray and sprayed the rest of the
    gunk out. Worked BEAUTIFULLY!!!
    Thanks all who responded. I appreciate it.
