How to Clean Your Hair Styling Tools

CC by sfllaw

Should you clean your hair styling tools? Most definitely! By hair tools, I’m referring to hair brushes/combs, hair dryers, flat irons and curling irons. There are so many advantages to keeping your hair styling tools clean.

For starters, build up of hair product or substances on your hot tools causes them to heat unevenly, which ultimately leads to hair damage. Dirty or greasy hair brushes lead to breakouts. You wash your hair to keep it from getting dirty, so it only makes sense to keep the styling tools that you put through your hair clean, as well. Hair styling tools collect dirt, oil and dead skin cells. Aside from transferring dirt and grease to your hair and scalp, passing that along can also clog pores and hair follicles. Here is the best way to clean…

Flat Irons and Curling Irons
Wipe with an alcohol-soaked cotton ball. For any hard-to-reach-places, you can use Q-tips. Use a clean towel to wipe dry.

Hair Dryers
Remove the air vent on the back of the hair dryer and clean out the lint with an old toothbrush. Then, rinse with hot water.

Hair Brushes and Combs
Pull out hairs from the hair brush/comb. Then, wash it with shampoo and rinse with conditioner. For combs, use hot water to rinse. Gently towel-dry a bit and then let it completely dry, standing teeth-down on a towel.

CHI hair dryers compared to FHI hair dryers

It’s hard to decipher which hair tool is the right one for you when there are so many choices being offered. I want to make your shopping experience a little easier by explaining the differences between the CHI brand and FHI brand of blow dryers. Both FHI and CHI are leading brands in the beauty industry providing professional salon quality hair tools.

First, I’ll begin by listing the hair dryers offered by each beauty brand to get you acquainted with each hair tool.


FHI Nano Salon Pro 2000
red or pink at 40% OFF!
$195.00 $119.99

FHI Blow Dryers:


CHI Rocket Hair Dryer

$303.92 $117.99

CHI Hair Dryers:

Note: CHI also offers the mini CHI Ceramic Pro Dryer. It’s a travel size version of their CHI Pro Hair Dryer that comes in a flat iron & hair dryer set.

CHI vs. FHI hair dryers

Price Comparison:

The cheapest hair dryer from both brands is the FHI Heat Nano Weight Pro 1800 Dryer (not including the mini offered by CHI).

The CHI mini travel set retails for about the same price as the cheapest fhi dryer. Because it’s a set of 2 hair tools, you can say, the mini hair dryer is less expensive than any original-sized blow dryer made by either brand. Plus, according to Farouk CHI, the mini is just as powerful as the CHI Pro.

It’s no secret that you can find way cheaper priced hair dryers but we think paying for a better quality hair tool is worth your investment. A better dryer means healthier and stronger hair.

Technology comparison:

Both FHI Heat and CHI use ceramic technology in their hair dryers. Ceramic hair dryers are safer for your hair than those without ceramic technology. One benefit is the reduced drying time it takes to blow dry your hair.
FHI Heat takes it a step further by creating ceramic tourmaline hair dryers. Simply put, tourmaline boosts the amount of negative ions produced by ceramic heat.
