Hair Tips | Clean Your Perm Rods, Flexi Rods, And Other Curlers/Rods

How To | Clean Your Perm Rods, Flexi Rods, And Other Curlers/Rods
Sooooooo you say you want a rod set.....Don't you see your rods have curly hair stuck to it??

I was just thinking about doing a flexirod set and saw all the product buildup and gunk on my rods. Yes, just disgusting!!! So let's go ahead and get this cleaning done first!

What you need:

Big container
Apple cider vinegar
Shampoo (optional)

1). Straighten the flexi rods and lay them in the big container

2). Pour 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar over the flexi rods, then pour lukewarm water over the flexi rods (the flexi rods will float)

3). If wanting extra cleaning status, pour 1 tbsp. of your shampoo over the flexi rods while the water is running

4). Allow your flexi rods to soak for 20 minutes to get the shed hair and the product residue off

5). Once the time is up, pour your flexi rods and the mixture in the sink. Rinse the flexi rods off with lukewarm water until the mixture is completely rinsed off

6). Lay the flexi rods on a clean towel and allow to air dry.

NOW YOU ARE READY TO USE THEM!! This took about 30 minutes to thoroughly clean them. You don't have to use Apple cider vinegar with shampoo. Use any cleanser you have (clarifying shampoos will work the best).

Check out my article on Black Hair Information: Don't Use That Gunky Brush! Tips For Cleaning Your Hair Tools  for simple tips to clean your:
  • Brushes (denman, stylers, paddle, boar bristle, rubber cushion, roller)
  • Combs (wide tooth, rat tail, Afro pick, teasing)
  • Hot tools (blow dryer, curling iron, flat iron)
  • Hair Accessories (rollers, hair ties, clips, pins)

Are there any hair tools you would just throw away instead of clean? Comment below

Natural hair says: cleaning your hair tools are really simple to do. Yes, it can be a pain and more like a dire chore to clean them, but making a habit out of cleaning your hair tools regularly will be better for the health of your hair.
