We may use out hair tool on a daily basis, when our hair is super clean and fresh or even when our hair is greasy and full of build-up. However, many few of us ever think about cleaning our hair tools. We just take it for granted and let them on the shelf for months or years and we have no idea that sometimes junk will build up on your hair tools. This is worse if you leave it on your counter when you spray products into your hair (with the over-spray just falling onto the tool) which is basically what I do every day.
Product build-up can also happen if you are styling your hair with a hot tool and you have product in your hair or your hair extensions. It’s somewhat inevitable, but there is a really simple way to wipe it off in order to keep your tools in tip top shape!
Today we are going to show you some quick methods to clean up your hair tools in a matter of minutes.
The easiest way is to use a simple cotton ball soaked in a bit of alcohol. You don’t want to “wash” your hair tools in water as it can break your electricity tools. So use this cotton ball to wipe up the buildup on your hair tools. If you have an area that is particularly thick, lay a slightly damp washcloth on top of the problem area shortly after you’ve turned off the tool. The heat that is remaining, and the moisture should loosen it up, and then it should wipe off pretty easily. You can also finish off that area with the alcohol-soaked cotton ball.
Here are some more tips for you:
- Be sure to clean your hair tools when it is not hot to ensure you don’t burn yourself.
- Only use a bit of alcohol, don’t oversaturate the washcloth nor the cotton ball. The reason is that sometimes alcohol can wipe away anything you don’t want to wipe away (like any of the finish/coating on the iron).
Not only does your iron look nice and fresh, but you lessen the risk of snagging your hair or especially your real hair extensions on any gritty texture left behind from product. This is such a fast way to clean up your tools which only takes you about minutes. So check your hair tools tonight and polish up your most loved irons!
