when dealing with powder makeup, tools should still be treated with the same
diligence and standards as implements in any other area.
We recommend cleaning
brushes with liquid soap and water or a mild hair shampoo and conditioner free
of wax-coating agents, chemical dyes, and strong perfumes. This will maintain
the integrity, structure, and softness of the natural hair and its performance

amount of soap of shampoo in the palm of the hand. Wet the brush and massage
