Curling tip 9: Clean your iron Because you are using styling products on your hair, it is important that you clean your curling iron after every use, otherwise it'll be coated in product build up. And the residue will prevent your iron from heating your hair evenly and you'll end up with lackluster curls.
Here's how 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 -- try Hana Styling Iron Cleaner, $22.50 or pick one up at a beauty supply store.
