Reasons Why You Should Clean Your Hot Hair Styling Tools
Many people wash their hair, brushes, combs, and accessories quite frequently. However, an even larger number may be neglecting their hot styling tools. The fact is that these tools also need regular, biweekly cleaning or at least monthly. This will depend on how often you use it and how much product you apply to your hair, you might need to clean it every time you iron. Here’s why.
Whenever you are using heat on hair, it is important to use heat protection to keep it from being fried. Other styling products are also commonly used to achieve better results. The amount of product used leads to build-up which can affect the results you will get from using your iron. This buildup of hair product and dirt can become sticky when heated. The result of this is that aside from being gross, the sticky gunk will further stress the hair as it is being dragged along its length. It also makes no sense to wash hair only to use a styling tool with heated, sticky, product from days or months ago. The hair will definitely not smell as good as before you started styling.
By cleaning your straightener, you can get better styling with a tool that smoothly glides along the hair. You can also get it to keep functioning effectively for a longer time, so it is worthwhile to know how to clean your hair straightener and other styling tools. The good news is that it only takes a few minutes and you don’t have to buy some expensive products to clean your hot styling tools.
