Everyone hates to clean but customers love to see a clean brush. Is there a good way to clean your hair brushes fast in salon? Yes! Follow our step-by-step guides, you can clean your brushes perfectly and make the most of your time.
Here are two ways to clean your hair brushes in salon, and one is for speed cleaning, and the other is for maintaining your hair brushes’ condition.
How to Clean Hair Brushes in Salon – The Fastest Way
Things That You Need:
Scissor, a fine-teeth comb, and hair dryer
Step One: Use the scissor to cut off the hair knots and tangles on the hair brush. You should be careful and don’t cut the brush’s bristles accidentally. The more cutting times you have, the easier you can remove those hairs.
Step Two: If you just did the cutting part, shake your hair brush quickly and hard to get rid of those small tiny hairs. And you will see that the hairs will fall rapidly.
Step Three: Brush the hair brush with your comb that with long and fine teeth from different angles, this will get 80% of the hair left on the brush out.
Step Four: Plug in your hair dryer, and set the speed to the most powerful setting. Blow the brush from every side to remove the dirt and small detritus.
This method is for roughly cleaning your hair brushes that are tangled in hair. And you don’t need any cleaner such as ammonia and soap. It is the quickest way that allows you to use the brush on your next customer when you are pressed for time. But you can not clean the slime and residue on the hair brushes completely with this method. If you want to deep clean the hair brushes for your salon, you can see the method below.

How Often Should You Clean Your Hair Brushes in Salon?
Salon’s hair brushes usually will get dirty easily as there are many types of hair products involved including serums & creams, heat protectants, and styling gels. So you should clean hair brushes in salon more frequently than you do at home.
Usually, we recommend people to clean their hair brushes once a week. However, to ensure perfect user experiences, my advice is to clean hair brushes used in salon every day after you close the door.
