Why does my straightener smell?
If you’re anything like me, you love the feeling of silky, straight hair. But sometimes, when you go to use your straightener, you notice an unpleasant smell. There are a few reasons why this might be happening, and luckily, there are also a few things you can do to fix it!

If you notice this smell coming from your straightener, it’s a good idea to clean the plates before using it again.

Straightening damp hair
If you try to straighten damp or wet hair, it will cause your straightener to smoke. This is because the water droplets are quickly turned into steam when they come into contact with the hot plates. If you notice this happening, it’s best to wait until your hair is completely dry before using your straightener.
