New Year's Cleaning for Hair Care Items

Your hair will look its best when you are using tools and products that are clean and in good condition. Start the New Year by surveying your hair care supplies to make sure they are in top shape.

Blow Dryers
Wipe the outside of your blow dryer with a damp cloth.
Clean the lint trap of your blow dryer. If the lint trap is removable, take it off and rinse it under hot water. Use a vacuum cleaner hose to pull out lint and stray hairs from the back of the dryer before you replace the lint trap.

Curling irons, flat irons
Purchase a commercial curling iron cleaner to remove baked on styling product. If this is not available, wipe curling irons and flat irons with a soft cloth saturated with alcohol to remove the product build-up.

Combs and brushes
Pull all of you brushes and combs out of the drawer.
Check all brushes. Make sure the ends of the bristles are rounded so that they do not scratch your scalp. If a brush is missing bristles or appears to be worn, it is time to replace it.
Discard combs that have missing teeth or that have sharp edges on the teeth. They will scratch your scalp and can damage individual hairs.
Left-over shampoo, conditioner, and styling products
These are all the products that you hadnít finished when you decided to try a new brand. You will usually find them stored under the bathroom sink or in the linen closet.
