5 Ways to Extend the Life of Your Hair and Beauty Tools

We spend a lot of money and time in looking and purchasing the right hair and beauty tools that perfectly fits our needs. We rely on these tools to make us look our best all the time, so it’s important to give them some proper care in return. Below are some of the best ways that we can do to properly care for our beauty tools.


1.       Hair Tools

We often disregard our flat and curling irons after using them, forgetting that they need some proper care for them to properly work and give the results that we want. Keep your hair tools clean by smearing a bit of coconut oil onto their surface, then wipe off any residue using a paper towel. In cases where there are already some product build-ups, gently remove it using a little eye makeup remover.

2.       Hairbrushes

Our hairbrushes is another beauty tool that we often take for granted. The best way to keep this tool clean and extend its life is to remove all the hair strands left after each use and spritz some alcohol on them to keep them sterilized and protected.

3.       Makeup Brushes

Cleaning your makeup brushes at least once a week is the best way to extend its life. Use a baby shampoo, or a gentle cleaner made especially for makeup brushes in cleaning them. If you want, you can also use olive oil to keep your bristles in their top shape. Just avoid soaking them in water as it will dissolve the glue that’s holding your bristles in place.


4.       Razor

Increase the life expectancy of your razor by drying them up after using them in the shower. Also, don’t store them in the shower as water often rusts the blades quickly. Doing this will greatly extend the life even of those inexpensive disposables.

5.       Mascara Wand

Another beauty tool that needs a regular cleaning is the mascara wand. Keep your wand clean by removing it from the mascara tube every once in a while. Remove any excess mascara using a tissue paper, then submerge it in a glass of hot water to fully clean it. Dry it using a paper towel afterwards, and you’re all done.

Keeping each of our beauty tool clean and in their top shape is important, given that we use them often. Just follow the aforementioned tips to keep your tool clean and get the best result that each of them can offer.
