*PRO TIP OF THE SAFETY VARIETY: This probably goes without saying but we're going to say it anyway: don't submerge any of your heat styling tools in liquid. If any part of you is thinking liquid cleaning solution + curling wand, abort your mission immediately. Heat styling tools and contact with any liquid is a thousand percent no-go.
*PRO TIP OF THE FYI VARIETY: Lay off swabbing any of your heat styling tools with alcohol. The protective matte coating on a lot of the NuMe tools offers stellar grip to the user. If you rub alcohol on it, it erodes this "soft touch" technology. Why would you want to risk messing with a "soft touch?!"
Our Microfiber Hair Wrap doubles as a great cleaning cloth, and if you don't have it or something like it, a cotton ball also works. Swipe your tools after each use (or every few uses), to ensure your tools remain in tip-top shape.
Keeping your curling wands and straighteners relatively clear of dust, grime and build-up, makes them live longer and keeps them up to snuff for full hair shining potential. Make it a regular habit (at least once a week, or after each use if you are super disciplined / never in a hurry), and it won't get to the point of no return (i.e., the point where you have to replace it because it's not working as well).
The dust and lint that gets trapped in the back of your dryer will blow onto your hair, in case you needed an additional incentive for doing the necessary dirty work. Also, if you don't take the time to clean it, the dirt and product can build up to the point that you might start to notice a burning smell after using the dryer—don't let it get to that point.
Your brush is full of hair, dust, and oil. If you don't want to keep transferring all that back onto your head, you need to make sure you clean your brush consistently.
If you are rushing off to clean your hair supplies right now, we're glad you feel inspired. You (or someone who loves you) invested hard-earned coin in these tools, so it's essential to take good care of them!
