1. Beauty basics: The conventional cleanse
Preliminary practice for beauty beginners: Grab a bowl of warm water, sprinkle in some shampoo – a no-nonsense do-it-all like American Crew’s Daily Moisturising Shampoo, $32 from Sephora, works well – then bathe the bristles in the soapy solution. (You can dispense a drop or two of tea tree oil into the basin to amp up the antibacterial awesomeness.) Use your fingers to separate the strands under a running tap and you’re good to go. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!
