This was a surprise to me – that you needed to clean your hair tools. Brushes and shears, yes, I have thought about that, but not my hair dryer, straighter, or curling wand.
Curling Irons/Hotrollers/Flat Irons: 5 years or less or until the heat goes out. When they get close to dying, your tools might start to smell like they are burning your hair or a burn smell will appear. To clean….
Hair Dryers: 5 years or less. To clean your hair dryer, use a tweezer to plug out lent or hair (anything that is in the filter that needs to be removed) or use a damp cloth on the filter. Remember to turn off your hair dryer before cleaning it.
Hair Brushes: As long as you like. Make sure you clean your brushes. You can do this like you clean your make up brushes. Swirl them in a cup of water and gentle soap/shampoo. You can also clean them in alcohol.
Shears: For years depending on the quality. To clean them, you can use Barbicide and wiping the down in alcohol or clean them in soapy warm water. Make sure you wipe them down and dry them before putting them away. Clean them once a week, and then after every hair cut or trim.
Hope you enjoyed this series on how long to keep your makeup, beauty, and hair products and tools.
