No, it is not possible to detach the head of the precision epilator. Do not immerse it in water. Clean the precision epilator regularly by removing loose hairs with the cleaning brush. Do not switch the appliance on while brushing. In case a lot of dirt has accumulated on/under the discs, you can use a damp cloth or damp brush to clean the head of the precision epilator. Dry the epilator afterwards with a dry cloth.
