your complete amika tools care guide
In case you don’t know about this yet, we offer lifetime warranty exchange for our tools, (just another reason for you to do your amika haul!). As much as we are happy to send you a brand new appliance in exchange for your damaged one, which is not going to happen often, this can actually be prevented if your tools are properly taken care of.
There’ll be buildups on your stylers’ plates or your curlers’ barrels, which is totally normal. As these buildups are actually styling products, dirt, and other environmental toxins that were once in your hair. If you do not have it cleaned and allows dusts or buildups to accumulate on stylers’ plates or dryers’ filters, it’ll not only affect the products’ operation efficiency but shorten the lifespan of your tools.
To make sure your appliances live a long, healthy life, here’s a cheat sheet for you to properly clean and look after them:
Turn off your appliance and disconnect it from the power source. Wipe the exterior with a damp cloth. To clean the plates/barrels, wait for it to cool down, spray a little alcohol on plates/barrels and use dry cloth to wipe clean.
Remove any hair stuck in the bristles after each use. Thoroughly clean your brush if needed: after your tool is cool and unplugged from the power supply, wipe the exterior with a soft damp cloth. If there’s any buildup in the brush, use a dry but soft straw cleaning brush to clean betweens the bristles. Do not immerse in water or scrub with excessive force, be gentle with your brush like it is with your hair!
To maintain your dryer’s optimal efficiency, we recommend regularly cleaning your dryer once a month. After unplugging your dryer from the power source, simply rotate the rear filter cover anticlockwise to remove it, remove dust and dirt by brushing the rear filter cover gently with a soft brush (or a toothbrush will do!) Rinse and dry before reattaching it to the dryer!
Storing your tools
Store stylers/curlers/thermal brushes away from your kids and pets in a heat-proof case or a heat resistant holder. (It can be purchased from our stores!) Do not wrap the cord around the tool’s body, neatly tie it up with the velcro attached to the cord. For dryers, you may also hang them by the hook for easy storage.
Do not store them in humid places. Yep, we know how you all like to put your dryers in your bathroom, but the humidity is not doing any good to your tools! Try putting your tools in a cool, dry place, for example your dressing table or dresser.
