Does anyone know how to keep points on brushes? And should I use a different brand than the GW brushes?
Thanks in advance.

Keep them clean and cap the bristles with that little tube that came on the end when you aren't using the brushes. Try keep paint away from the base of the bristles, it's very hard to clean it out once it's there.
When I've finished using the brushes, once I've rinsed them (by gently/vigorously waving it through the water, no need to mash the bristles against the bottom) I straighten the bristles by wiping it across the tips of my fingers. Some people use their mouth to straighten them, I don't.
Basically just take care of them and be gentle as to minimise any stress on the bristle fibers.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

After I use my non GW brushes I always reshape the tip with my fingers. But i'm constantly washing the bristles, I'll paint something. Wash the bristles then finish painting, wash the bristles... Ect.

As had been said. Wash well after use, use your fingers or mouth to shape them, use the plastic cover they come with, never, ever on any account store them with the bristle facing down. Ohhh and i use brush soap to give my brushes that extra level of clean. Brush soap should be able to purchase in any art and hobby shop plus its cheap and lasts ages.
