Tip 8: Clean Your Curling Iron Though it's a hassle -- we already have to clean our makeup brushes (groan) -- it's important to clean your curling iron after every use, otherwise it gets coated in product build up. The residue will prevent your curling iron from heating your hair evenly and you'll end up with lackluster curls. Yikes.
To clean your iron, wait until it is completely cool and simply wipe it with a damp towel. If you haven't cleaned it in a while, you may need to invest in a hot iron cleaner to remove the gunk -- give Hot Tools Styling Iron Cleaner, $5.99, a try.
