Style your brushes with hair conditioner

While researching different methods to care for artist brushes, I found the following tip involving hair conditioner on Rosemary & Co Web site:
“Another special tip for longevity of brush heads is to recondition your sables as you would your own hair! Once a year, take ordinary hair conditioner and
apply just one or two drops to the heads allowing to soak, then rinse well before storing again. This will greatly enhance the performance of the brush.”

Considering that brushes tips are made of hair, it makes sense to care for them using hair products. I will give it a try.
Rosemary has been making brushes for over 20 years, so she certainly knows what she is talking about.
