Cleaning Hair Curlers in the Washer?

My curlers are full of hair. The bristles hang onto the hair. I heard there was a way to remove the hair in the washing machine.

There are several different types of 'curlers' so we may not answer correctly for your curler type.

This problem usually happens more often when curlers are used with long hair. It is a constant chore to keep the hairs removed after each use but that is when it is the easiest job.
When loaded with hair you will have to cut the hair either with small scissors or small knife and cut in at least 2-3 places down the curler. It is best to just pull the hairs off the curlers and place in trash as even putting curlers in water only makes hair cling to the curler.

You can 'wash' the curlers in a bowl/pan using a small amount of dish soap and then rinse several times.
I would suggest pouring the dirty water outside or perhaps in the commode if outside is not possible. If you have to pour down sink drain make very sure you have the drain that has a 'trap' to catch anything other than liquid.

I found the first answer to this problem years ago on ThriftyFun . it had something to do with putting a large bath towel in with the curlers and then the hair comes off in the towel.. just wasnt sure if it also called for soap or something else. Thrifty fun has always been my go to for anything. My hair is falling out big time and isnt easy to take off the curlers.

Sorry, I'm not aware of this solution but maybe Jess can find it on ThriftyFun for you.
I'm not sure about the hair coming off in a towel if this is long hair trapped in your curlers as the hair follicles are very strong and usually have to be unwound or cut.

Placing curlers in a towel and using a washer may work for very short pieces of hair but I do not think this will work for long hair that is wrapped around the curler.
This video is for a brush but same with curlers.

Here is the question that I think you are referring to. One of the answers talks about using bath towels in the dryer.

You are most likely have velcro rollers (it is really difficult to remove hair from them). I doubt they can be cleaned in a washing machine with towels, maybe just a little. You will have to manually pull the hairs out, but first mix 1/3 ounce gentle shampoos in two cups of warm water and soak rollers for 15 minutes.

Then put on gloves and use a fine tooth, rat-tail comb held at a low angle stroke outward - longitudinally - to the end, stripping off the hairs. If the hairs are very tangled, then cut them. Then soak the cleaned rollers in fresh water, swirl them around. Then rinse under running water and dry.

I find the hair is more easily removed while the roller is wet.

I would not do that. The hair could clog up the drains. If you have to, manually pull the hair out. Cutting the hair with a small scissors makes the job easier.
