Regardless of what others say, soap and water will suffice. To buy expensive brush cleaners is a ploy for companies to get people to spend more money. You do not need a brush cleaner. I've washed my brush with my cleanser for two years now... my brush is A-okay.
I use the sephora brand purifying brush cleaner once a week.

I use Aubreys Organics shampoo for dry, frizzy hair and follow with the Aubreys Organics Desert Hair conditioner, also for dry, frizzy hair. The gentle organic formula works well to remove all traces of makeup, and the conditioner makes the brush absolutely heavenly and like-new again! I have not experienced any issues with my bristles falling out, and the organic shampoo and conditioner are what I use anyway to keep my own hair in top condition!
I do not believe in brush cleaner. I'd rather spend that money on makeup! ;)
I lather up the brush with the shampoo, and swirl the brush in my hands like I do in the makeup. After I thoroughly lather the bristles, I rinse well. I only use a TINY amount of conditioner as it is really concentrated and the brushes are relatively small. I do make sure each hair gets saturated, and let them sit for a minute. Again, rinse well.
I towel dry gently and reshape. I tap the brushes to loosen the fibers and allow more air further into the brush. I lay them on a towel overnight and allow to air day. The next morning they are soft and perfect for a fresh start!

Use any hair conditioner. Never ever use soap or shampoo. After smoothing with conditioner, wash with warm water. Wrap in a towel. Blow dry. DONT blow dry directly at the brush. Go from the sides or from above..
BLOW DRYERHERE to here

Only use BE brush cleaner, or Sephora brand brush cleaner. If you try any other soap even if it's baby shampoo, your bristles will fall out. I have tried both Sephora brand and BE brand brush shampoo's and I prefer the BE brand. Put some in a glass and mix with warm water, let the brushes soak for a few hours then take them out and add a little shampoo to your hand and swirl around untill water comes clear when bristles squeezed unter water. Lay flat to dry. It's like having a new brush all over again!
