So now that I have been doing hair styling for shoots and clients, I have gotten serious about what tools I have in my hair kit. The other day I was at Sally's Beauty Supply and ran into this cool little gadget called a Brush Cleaner by Tool Structure. It's pretty much a mini leaf rake made of wire. You brush it through your brush and it collects hair, dust, and whatever might possibly be in your brush! Then you just pull it off the brush rake and your done!

Above is a photo of an old brush that has collected dust, lint, and that still has a few hairs in it.
Here is the brush after cleaning it with the brush rake! I'd say it did a pretty darn good job!!! I'm really excited about this little gadget because I hate picking out those stubborn hairs that stay in the brush! And I want my brushes clean for my next client. And it was around $5, so definitely worth it.
