Good curling irons don’t come cheap and that’s the reason you should be handling and storing it with care. Cause buying a new one every year or so is just not feasible. It’s important that you treat the one you’ve got carefully so that it doesn’t decide to break down. Also, you’ll know that a little curler TLC will improve the performance of your tool, and will play a role in protecting your hair from inevitable heat damage.
To help you keep your curling irons in good shape, we’ve put down a list of tips to care for your curlers.
Turn it off after using it: This will prevent the excess heat and electricity from slowly deteriorating your curling iron.
Store it properly: Make sure that you give your curler enough time to cool down after turning it off before you store it away. You should also avoid wrapping the cord around the curling iron, as the heat from the curler can damage the cord. Never hang your product up by its cable, this will eventually loosen the wire connection so that the curler won’t turn on.
Watch the surface: Always make sure to use a heatproof mat to keep your curler while it’s hot. Because you don’t want it to come in contact with the surface on which it is lying, especially plastic! This will not only damage the surface on which it is kept but also damage the barrel of your curler.
Consider your hair care products: If you are using products that tend to leave a lot of build-up on your hair, then you may have to consider changing that product(s). Build-up does not only rip the shine and volume off your hair but it’s also quite bad for your curling iron. As for curling, the hair with residue on it will cause pulling, sticking, and burning of hair.
Avoid using it in place with damp surroundings: Often the countertop and mirror set up in your bathroom make it your favorite spot to get ready. However, bathrooms are invariably damp places. The chance of your curling iron coming into contact with water here is high. So you might as well choose a safer spot to avoid the loss.
Keep it clean: It doesn’t take long for the barrel of your curler to end up with quite a bit of product build-up from your heat protectant, setting spray or holding mousse, along with dust, dirt, and more. These not only transfer onto your hair each time you use your curling iron but also creates a sense of drag that snaps strands and encourages burning and hair damage. Keep your curler clean by rubbing away the traces of products on the barrel with a damp cloth after it completely cools.
As curling irons don’t come cheap and also that you don’t want to take a chance with your hair. It’s not a bad idea to keep your curler in good condition by simply adhering to these tips.
