How did you let the brush dry? I find that using a brush guard and letting the brush dry upside down allows my brushes to keep their shape AND keeps water from ruining the glue. Michelle Phan has a great tutorial on YouTube.
After washing any brush, rinse, rinse and rinse again. I use a hand towel to press all excess water from the brushes, and in between pressing I tap the handle on my arm or wrist. The point is to try and get as much moisture out of the brushes. I put the fan back in it's plastic cover. I find that with foundation and eyeshadow brushes, I can just shade with my fingers and lay flat on my counter and they keep their shape.
Re wet the brush and place the vinyl cover it came with or place it between two books or something similar and allow it to dry to reshape.
I have heard of a product called "Glominerals Brush Cleaner" for cleaning fan brushes, but don't know much about it. I tap out any excess product and wipe it gently on a baby wipe to remove any makeup or shadow color, then replace the brush every 3 months or so. May just be me, but it doesn't seem right to immerse a brush of this type in water. It's purpose is for dry materials so I always felt that wetting it would ruin it.
