They can be cleaned by using simple ingredients and following the easy steps below.
What you will need:
A container big enough to fit all perm/flexi-rods
Shampoo of your choice
Apple Cider Vinegar

- Add ¼ cup of the apple cider vinegar and lukewarm water over the flexi-rods (you will notice the hair tools floating)
- Add 1 tbsp. of shampoo to the container for a squeaky clean hair tool, removal of hair products and gunk.
- Allow the hair curlers to soak for 20 minutes; to loosen up the product and shed attached hair
