Here are a few tips on how to look after your scissors



Cleaning


Using a soft clean cloth, thoroughly wipe your scissors after every haircut. This will reduce the build-up of chemicals and hair which may affect the performance of your scissors throughout the working day.


Lubrication


After cleaning and drying your scissors we recommend that you lubricate. Carefully open your scissor to a 90 degree angle and apply 1 drop of  scissor oil to where the scissor pivots. This assists in the cleaning process by pushing dirt, debris and hair from under the pivot and leaves a small layer of protective scissor oil. This process should be carried out daily to prolong the life of your scissors.


Why oil and clean daily?


Daily oiling and cleaning will enhance the performance and extend the cutting life of your scissors. Regular cleaning and lubrication protects your scissors against the chemicals and moisture typically found in the salon environment.


Balancing


Correct tension of your scissors will ensure you get the best use out of your scissors. If the tension is too loose it will cause your scissors to fold and bend the hair and if it’s too tight it will cause premature wear of the blade edges and user fatigue. To test for correct tension hold the scissors with the points/tips upwards. Holding the scissor in both hands, lift one handle up to a 90 degree angle and then let go of the handle. If the blade closes quickly and completely then the tension is much too loose. Adjust the tension and re-test so that the blades close about two thirds of the way.


Storage


When your scissors are not being used please keep the blades closed as this will reduce the chance of accidental damage to the blade edges. How you store your scissors is also very important and for added protection you should always store your scissors in the protective case provided.

 

Sharpening


Your scissors will have a very long lasting sharp edge if they are serviced correctly. When the time comes to have your scissors sharpened then the process must be done through a service centre that has the facility and experience to sharpen and re-balance  scissors.  Using an unauthorised service centre may cause damage to the blades of your  scissors .
