Beauty Tip: Learn How To Correctly Clean Your Flat And Curling Irons

Do you feel that your flat or curling icon isn’t working as well as it used to? It’s possible that this is due to the fact that each time you use it, styling products end up leaving residue on the ceramic plates. Just like makeup brushes, hairstyling utensils need to be cleaned regularly. Here’s how:

>> Under no circumstances are you to scrape off the dried residue off the ceramic plates. You risk scraping off the protective coating, which shields your hair from excessive heat when using the iron.

>> The optimal interval between cleaning should be once weekly for utensils used daily and once monthly for ones used about three times a week.

>> The most efficient method to clean a straightener or a curling iron is to wipe it with a cotton pad infused with either alcohol, acetone or white vinegar.

>> Clean your styling utensils before they cool off completely, or, more precisely, before the residue has time to dry up on the surface of the plates. Be careful though – you’re supposed to do this while the iron is lukewarm, not still hot!
