So what’s the answer? Which one is better? What are the pros and cons of each type of hair brush? Is there any difference between the different brands? How do they compare to each other?

Best Hair Brush Cleaners: Pros & Cons
The most important thing to remember when choosing a hair brush cleaner is that it must be safe for your skin. If it isn’t, then don’t buy it! There are several factors that go into determining whether a product is safe or not.
The first factor is the ingredients list. For example, some hair care products contain parabens (a chemical found in antiperspirants) which have been linked to cancer and hormonal disruption. Other common ingredients include formaldehyde, phthalates, triclosan, and bisphenol A (BPA). All of these chemicals have been shown to be harmful to human health when used incorrectly. It is therefore very important to read the label carefully before buying any hair care product. You may also want to contact the manufacturer directly to ask them about the safety of their ingredients.
The next factor to consider is whether or not the product includes unnecessary (and potentially harmful) additives. For example, some manufacturers add sodium chloride (table salt) and ammonium chloride. These two chemicals are used in products like spray-on deodorants where they prevent moisture from appearing on a cool surface.
