My brushes just cleaned, without brush guards on.
My clean brushes with brush guards on!
I'm sure many of you have heard of brush guards through YouTube. That's how I learned about them, and I'm so glad I did. I never dry my clean brushes without a brush guard on them. Although, I don't put them on flat brushes.
Every time I get new brushes, I buy another pack of brush guards. I even leave them on my brushes after they have dried to keep their shape. That's what I love about them, my big fluffy brushes don't splay out, instead they remain in the shape you buy them in because the brush guard keeps it intact.
The best part is that they are super inexpensive. I buy the 6 pack variety set at coastal scents for $4.95! They sell other packs though. If you want to read on the history of them and reviews, click here for their homepage.
Just be careful that the brush guard doesn't get pulled back because it will take the brush hairs with it and your brush will look like a head of static cling hair!
