Maintenance Tips:
Every month they should be washed thoroughly.
Don’t use the same one for both light and dark shades–use one for each. Helps prevent streaks when applying light highlight shades.
Try using a daily skin cleanser when washing the brushes. This helps avoid allergic reactions as the professional products can be harsh.
Once done, reshape immediately and allow to dry. Make sure they are thoroughly dry before using again.
When they start shedding and the bristles frizz, replace with new ones.
