Taking Care of Your Hair Clippers

January 10, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Many families save money every year by cutting their hair at home with a set of electric hair clippers. This can save them hundreds of dollars every year and all with one set of clippers for many years if they take good care of the set they have.

Clippers should always be cleaned and put away clean to ensure that the blades remain sharp and ready to cut when you need them. After each use the hair should be completely cleaned off the blades as well as the rest of the clippers and oil should be applied to all the moving parts to ensure smooth action when you need it again.
When storing your electric hair clippers you should always place them in the original storage bag in which they came with or some other protective case to keep the clippers from dirt, debris, and damage from other objects. Care should also be taken with the cord to ensure that it is not pulled out of the clipper body while being stored and if it is a rechargeable pair of clippers ensure they are fully charged before you begin using them.

I remember when I got my first “real” pair of hair cutting scissors, I was 16. I had no idea that they were priced from $ 100.00 to $ 1,000.00. My mom invested in a pair for me and I was the happiest new hairdresser in town. A good pair of scissors will slide cut like no other (you hairdressers know what I am talking about) A bad pair of scissors and a client wanting fringe around the face could send them away screaming.

It is very important to only cut hair with your scissors, and find someone who has had a lot of good feedback in regards to sharpening. I had mine sharpened once by some “unknown” I used them once afterwards and they broke. I found out it would be more expensive to fix them than to replace them. I was devastated. Took me years to get over…Okay slight exaggeration, but you get my point.

Your haircutting scissors become your pet, no one can touch them, and oh my gosh, talk about the first time I saw my child using them to cut paper AHHHHH! Yes, he is still alive, but I definitely got a higher hiding place, and well, a lock and key, can never be too careful!

So come and check out our new line of professional hair scissors, you won’t be disappointed. Make one your pet today!
