Only a clean hairbrush can ensure hair health

One of the main conditions for maintaining healthy hair is combing with a high-quality and clean comb. Sebum accumulates on this tool during use, and bacteria can develop, which is why the hygienic cleanliness of the comb is essential.

OBOZREVATEL has collected tips on how to clean different types of combs and what products to use to properly treat them to maintain hygiene.

Metal comb

It's not a good idea to wash hair tools made of metal with water, as this can cause them to rust. Therefore, the treatment should be quick and thorough. The first step in caring for any hairbrush is to remove all the hair that has collected in it. After that, the metal product is washed with a solution of shampoo and water. Metal can also be cleaned with baking soda: apply a little baking soda to a wet comb and go over it with a soft brush, or an old toothbrush. After cleaning, the instrument should be wiped dry immediately.

Wooden comb

Natural wood can also deteriorate from water, so wooden combs should be cleaned carefully. After removing the hair, it is best to treat it with a cotton pad dipped in alcohol. Hard-to-reach places can be wiped with an alcohol-soaked cotton swab. You can also wipe the wood with bactericidal wet wipes. Abrasives and household cleaners are ot suitable for wood. After care, such a comb should also be wiped dry.

Plastic comb

This material is the most unpretentious to care for, so it can be cleaned and disinfected with baking soda and vinegar. Pour enough water into the vessel in which the comb will be placed so that it can be completely immersed. Next, add 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 2 tablespoons of vinegar to the water. The instrument should lie in this solution for 10-15 minutes. If necessary, the comb can be treated with a toothbrush. After washing, the plastic comb is rinsed and dried on a towel.
