Once you’ve finished using the hair curler, unplug it and let it cool on a heat-resistant surface.

Don’t use a hair curler while you’re in the bath, or near a sink full of water.

Don’t reach for the hair curler if it falls into water - unplug it straight away and then remove it.

Check the cord of your hair curler regularly for any signs of damage. If you spot any damage, replace it.

Always unplug your hair curler from the mains when not in use.

Do not rinse or submerge in water, and ensure that the plug and cord do not get wet.

Keep the power plug and cord away from heated surfaces.

Don’t leave a hair curler switched on and unattended when not in use.
