DIY – Make Your Own Brush Guard


Hi beauties!!!! I recently placed a huuuge order with and I have ordered many brushes. I will do a haul post as soon as I receive the package. I am so excited and can’t wait for it to arrive!

Since I ordered so many brushes, I also had in mind of ordering the brush guard sold on the same website but somehow I left it out! Now I had been repenting all this while and suddenly it came to my mind to try and find an alternative.

A Brush Guard is a flexible, breathable cover for the brush that helps retain its shape after it has been washed. It prevents the de-shaping of your brushes while they dry and ensures that there are no frays due to the drying process. These are available online and I personally have never seen anything of this kind being sold in the retail market here. Also, the ones available online are generally of one size only and they are said to fit all.

  • Take a loofah! Just cut the string that holds it together. Unfold it.
  • Cut a rectangular portion about 1.5-2 inches wide.
  • Cut the section into half.
  • Use this half section to wrap on your washed brush. Place it under your brush. Note that I have placed it just where the bristles start. Wrap it firmly, and then slide it up to secure and cover the bristles. I have used a longer section; you might consider using a smaller section that allows more air in to dry the brush more quickly.

Plus, a loofah gives you numerous brush guards. This method requires no stitching, no pasting and this is going to fit any brush-from the thinnest to the fattest!
