Hi Jackie

I get this sometimes as well! I was told if it happened to put some scrub fresh on a hands down and wipe the entire handle and brush head in a downward motion until no more yellow.

Was a bit dubious at first as i've always been told to use monomer only on brush head, but it seems to have worked! Must admit i'm a devil for leaving a bit of "something" in my brush and both my pro-styler and master series have had this treatment and are still going strong.

HTH?

Good advice Taz,
This is quite common and a little scrub fresh applied as taz has advised is the only soultion i know and it does work. Please dont over load with scrub fresh, and remember this is not a regular/every day answer. But once in a blue moon is cooool.
**Always REMEMBER Brushes should be cleaned in 'clean' monomer.**

I may be speaking out of line here as I haven't done L&P for 3 years but when I did we always had to hang our brushes in the spring of the desk lamps with the bristles down so that excess monomer wouldn't build up in the shaft. As I say my L&P knowledge is alittle rusty but this may help to keep a cleaner brush.

I have to say i was always told you store my brush so pointing downwards which i can do in my case as it has got side bits to poke things in, if this makes sense, so my brush is never laid down at all.
