How to Clean Your TEK Brush!

November 13, 2018

 

Wondering how to care for your beloved TEK brush?

Most of us use our hair brushes on a daily basis to distribute the natural oils in our hair and to detangle knots. But our hair brushes are also great at trapping lint, dead skin cells, and dirt from daily hair brushing routines!

Cleaning your brush regularly is important so that you’re not redistributing unwanted waste from your brush onto your hair.

Here’s how to clean your TEK brush in 4 easy steps!

You’ll need:

  1. Your TEK wooden brush
  2. 5 drops of Calia Tea Tree Oil
  3. 1 cup of clean cold water
  4. A fine comb OR brush cleaner
  5. An old toothbrush
    1. Remove the hair from your brush bristles
    Using the fine comb or brush cleaner, catch the hair in the comb and pull it up the sides of the brush. Remove all the loose hair collected, curl into a ball, and toss it out. 


    2. Clean your brush
    Add the tea tree oil to a small cup of water. Apply the mixture to the bristles using the toothbrush and scrub the bristles in an upward motion. After cleaning the bristles, apply the mixture to the rubber cushion and scrub off any lint and dirt.

    3. Rinse your brush

    Rinse your brush by spritzing a bit of water from a spray bottle instead of soaking.

    4. Dry your brush

    Lay your TEK brush on a clean towel, pin side down, and leave undisturbed until it's fully dry. Your brush is now clean and ready to work it's magic!
