All brushes during the manufacturing process have a "gum" product put into the hairs to aid with shaping and also to protect the hairs till it’s used. This gum product has to be fully removed before using the brush for the first time, if you do not remove this gum from your brushes it can cause discoloration of the product you’re applying and cause the hairs on the brush to split down the middle.
Once you have prepared your new brush you will need to work in a small amount of clear gel. Place any clear builder type gel onto a sculpting form and work the clear gel into your brush.
Also remember that gels are UV light cured so make sure you keep your brush away from your uv/led lamp whilst your working and away from any sunlight as this will cure any gel that remains in your brush. You can replace the plastic sleeve for gel brushes if needed or store in a brush case, this also prevents any fluff or dust contaminating your brushes.
We also recommend not using any gel cleansers to clean your gel brushes as these brushes are made from semi natural hairs and the cleansers can dry the hairs out in your brush. We recommend that you use the method above of placing a small amount of clear gel on a form and clean your brush using this gel to get any remaining color residual out of your brush.
To ensure a prolonged life and optimal performance, proper care and maintenance must be observed:
- Avoid skin contact with the bristles whenever possible. Oils from the body can deteriorate the bristles over time.
- Do not use acetone. Even just one washing in acetone can dehydrate the bristles enough to affect their performance. Acetone strips the brush of its natural moisture. Once the bristles become dehydrated, they will be unable to hold liquids, rendering the brush useless. Acetone will also dissolve the glue that holds the bristles into the ferrule (the metal band that holds the bristles and attaches them to the handle).
