Dip it in your gel and 'work it' back and forth in the cap of the gel.

DONT clean it with anything ! Just work it in the product and VOILA nice soft brush again ready for use!

Im a firm believer of NEVER cleaning your gel brush just WIPE it on a lint free pad/couch roll when you have finished and then b4 use WORK it in your gel.

Do you have any tips for sorting out a brush that the bristles keep seperating on even though its a new brush

what kind of brush we talking? normally when dipped in product and 'worked' it should stay in tact.

Is it synthetic or sable?

Oh my god, thanks so much for this tip. Have been doing gel for quite a while now and recently this has happened to 3 brushes! Luckily I haven't thrown them out so will def try this and hopefully will be restored to new!!
