Results From Bad Scissor Care

January 14, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Hair scissors are one of the most popular tools a stylist can use. There are many types of these scissors and they float around all kinds of hair salons in the world. No matter what type of shear it may be, one must pay close attention to the care information of a pair of hair scissors. These tools are not anywhere near cheap and can cost a fortune to repair or even replace if proper care is not taken with them. Here you will discover what happens when you do not take correct care of hair scissors.

Some people think that by wiping scissors down with a dry cloth after each use is good enough for cleansing. This is one of the worst things you could do, though. The dry clothes are what scratch the blades and create problems with the smooth look of the metal. If you are using a cloth made of micro fiber like those that clean lenses, your shears will be much more safe. Micro fiber is great because it doesn’t create and leave behind any lint particles and it is gentle enough to prevent scratching of glass and/or metal.

You can also cause harm to your shears by avoiding the cleansing process of the entire tool. It won’t do you much good to cleanse only the blades since the handle is what holds the most bacteria from your hands. The blades are important too though since product and hair can build up and cause them to get jammed. If you don’t cleanse them in a special solution designed specifically for shears, they will get jammed and could possibly even stop opening when you try to cut a client’s hair. The key to cleansing them is to do it at the end of every day that you use them. Even if you only use them once, it is crucial for you to clean the shears so that can keep in working condition.

Just because you clean your shears does not mean you can throw them onto a towel and let them dry overnight. This is actually very bad on the scissors because it can create rust on the blades and the area where the handles and the metal meet. The other result would be water spots everywhere on the silver. To avoid rust and spots, take a few seconds to dry the shears thoroughly so that the blades have no water sitting on them. Also remember to use your micro fiber cloth to dry the shears so to avoid scratches in the end.

Taking good care of hair scissors isn’t a difficult process as long as you remember to do it each day. Even if you only use the shears once that day, it is important to clean them and take proper care so they can be in working condition as long as possible. The process begins to get difficult when you actually do have the tough to remove water spots or rust forming on the shears. It is extremely difficult to remove rust and water spots begin to stick around after so long. To keep your shears long lasting it is important to take proper care of them.
