Maintenance of hair-cutting scissors/shears is a very important process for a hairdresser.
If you don’t really take care of it please try to do it from today for your hair scissors.
How do you clean hair-cutting scissors?
The proper cleaning of haircutting shears involves rinsing the shears with soap and water, careful and thorough drying, and the use of rubbing alcohol or quaternion haircutting shear sanitizer solution. Sometimes the use of an autoclave after washing and drying is used
How often should you sharpen hair scissors?
Some manufacturers suggest having your shears sharpened every three months; some say every four months and others suggest every six months, or even once a year. A suggested rule of thumb is to have hairdressing scissors sharpened every 500 – 700 hair cuts or every six months.
What kind of oil do you use for hair scissors?
Lubricating – use a little WD-40, Teflon-based lubricant, or other household oil to oil the screw. Apply it with a soft cloth so that the blades will move smoothly and friction will be reduced. Only use a little oil and rub off all excess prior to reusing the shears.
How often should scissors and clippers be oiled?
If you want to prolong the life of your scissors, you should lubricate your scissors every day. You’ll protect your scissors against chemical corrosion and moisture. Cleaning and oiling regularly keep hairs off the blade and more importantly, away from the screw.
How long do hair cutting shears last?
These shears will need to be sharpened 3 to 4 times a year, and may only last for 4 to 5 years, instead of 12 to 15 years as good quality shears should.
How to look after hairdressing scissors
To keep your scissors in good condition longer, take some care:
1.Keep the scissors always protected to prevent damage in case of fall.
2.For a better scissors performance put a few drops of oil every two or three days.
3.Always hold the scissors by the handle to prevent damage to the blades with the sweat of the hands.
4.Start cutting after washing the hair.
5.Always place the scissors on support for perfect alignment.
6.Use a brush to clean the scissors.
7.Never cut paper or any material other than the hair so as not to lose the sharpening of the blades.
8.Use the scissors correctly when cutting hair.
