Cleaning Boar Bristle Brushes

My boar bristle brush has collected a ton of dust and dead skin…

Does anybody know of an effective way to clean it out?

I just use soap and water on mine. I figure my hair is putting enough grease back onto it that it will be ok. Anyhow, I wet the brush thoroughly, rub some soap onto the surface of the bristles, and then use a comb to work the soap all through the bristles. Then I rinse it off, again using the comb to get at the roots of the bristles. Make sure to comb towards you so that the spray from the bristles is flicked away, and try and aim it down into the sink unless you feel like cleaning your mirror every day.
