If you want to keep your hair clean, you have to clean your hair tools regularly.
Clean Hairbrushes and Combs
After brushing hair for a long time, you will find that there are dusts, hair sprays, oils from your scalp, and other product residues on your hair brush.
- Slid any long, thin tool under all the stuck hair in the brush.
- Gently tug upwards until it’s loosened out of the bristles. After each time you brush hair, you can easily pull out whatever is left with your hand if there isn’t that much hair.
- Pour warm water into a sink, and splash some cleansing shampoo.
- Soak hairbrushes and combs in the water.
- Take an old toothbrush and gently get rid of the buildup at the base of the brush or comb.
- Let the hair brushes air dry. Or, dry it with a blow drier.
Clean Curlers and Flat Irons
Don’t let the sticky product buildup on your curlers. Don’t burn your hair with flat irons. You should clean your hot tools well in order to get rid of that residue to keep them in great condition.
- Unplug them.
- Use a damp cloth to rub over the surfaces over and over again to get rid of as much buildup as possible. Or, you can add a little rubbing alcohol to rub them.
- If the hot tools are warm, the product buildup comes off easier. Plug the tool in for a few second, and then unplug it before starting to clean.
- Never submerge curlers and straighteners in water.
Clean Blow Dryer
- Remove the back cover.
- Take out the filter.
- Clean the filter with some small tools.
- Rinse it with warm water.
- Dry it completely.
- Clean any buildup of hair products with a damp cloth while drying.
Clean Hair Accessories
- Throw your headbands, hair ties, scrunchies, and hair clips in the sink with warm water.
- Add a few drops of shampoo.
- Gently rub each accessory.
- Dry them on a towel.
