    Make Your Hair Dryer and Hair Curling Iron Last Longer

    Defective hair styling tools such as hair dryers and hair curling irons cause hundreds of injuries and fires every year unnecessarily. It pays occasionally to inspect your hairdryer and hair curling iron for early evidence of problems. If it’s perhaps been too late and you’ve experienced injury, tragedy or property loss due to faulty hair styling tools, you may want to get in touch with a personal injury lawyer that can deal with defective product cases, with the use of law firms such as lamber goodnow or other similar specialty law firms that could be of service to you.

    The most common defects occur in the cords. Look for fraying, cracking or broken insulation on the cords. Try to store your hairdryer or hair curling irons with the cords wrapped loosely whenever possible. Cords on hair dryers and hair curling irons should last 5-7 years, but if wound tightly every day, you’ll shorten the life span considerably.

    Shut your hair dryer off before you lay it on high-lint prone surfaces such as towels and bedspreads. Remove loose hair etc., from the lint filter on your hair dryer once a month or so with a vacuum.

    Even though your hairdryer has a heating element at the front of the motor, the back of the motor should be able to cool the bearings in the motor. A clogged filter will cause the motor to overheat and shorten the life span.

    If your hairdryer, hair curling iron or any other hair styling tool ever smells funny . . .unplug it immediately! That is a sure signal that something is amiss.

    Don’t take chances, Ditch it! Let’s face it these things are pretty inexpensive to replace compared to a fire in your house or worse yet injury to you or your loved ones.




    1. Dandruff is not caused by hair dryers. Most often than not, it is caused by products you use on your hair; shampoo, conditional, styling lotion, etc. Hair straightening can be safe too. But ask around first. Get opinions from those who have done it, where and how they did they it.
