Hi, my name is Tricia Mann, and we're going to talk about how to take care of natural hair makeup brushes. Natural makeup hair brushes are a worthwhile investment. The key is taking care of them properly. Here's how. First, take your glass of warm water. Add in a couple of drops of a basic gentle soap. I'm using Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Soap; just a very gentle soap. It's sodium lauryl sulfate free, which is a harsh detergent which actually dries out your brushes overtime. You don't need an expensive brush cleaner. You can actually use a very gentle baby shampoo or a very gentle soap. First, you're going to take your brush and dip in the water and swish it around to loosen up any makeup dirt, oil and debris. You can let them soak for a few minutes, just don't let them soak overnight. That will actually loosen up the glue in the brushes which will make the hairs fall out. Once you've cleaned your brushes in the soap solution, you're going to want to rinse them out and ring them out. Once you've rinsed your brushes, you're going to want to let them dry on a clean towel on a countertop. One thing you'll notice is that I have them laying off the edge of the counter. That's so that air can actually reach them from all the way around. What that's going to do is allow them to dry evenly. You never want to dry your brushes sitting up like this such as in a container because what's going to happen is, the moisture is going to get into the glue which is going to loosen up the brush hairs and cause them to fall, fall out overtime. And that's how to clean natural hair makeup brushes. Thanks for watching.
