How often you should replace your hair brush?
There's arguably nothing you feel like you can't accomplish when you're having a good hair day.
Do you know the secret to lustrous hair all starts with having the right hairbrush? And once you have that hairbrush, it all comes down to taking care of it, and knowing when it's time to toss it.
A good rule of thumb is to change your brush every one month.If your brush's bristles are starting to separate or melt, or the bed is cracked, it may also be time to move on.
"It depends on the condition of the brush. If the bristles are broken or bent, they can damage or rip the hair from the head," said Elisa Fitzpatrick, who's a senior stylist at SEVEN Salon in Seattle and a Mason Pearson brush expert. "When the bristles start to curl or go missing (it's) a pretty big sign that it is wearing down or needs to be replaced."
But to make sure you get the most out of your brush, there are a few things you should never do. Fitzpatrick advised avoiding the following: spraying or applying styling products directly to the hairbrush; soaking the brush in water or any other liquid; and using harsh detergents, ammonia or barbicide to clean and apply heat directly to the brush.
