How To Clean And Adjust Hair Scissors

Clean your scissor on a daily basis either before you start or at the end of your day. Simply take a soft cotton towel with some isopropyl alcohol on it. Begin by wiping the blades starting at the pivot area moving toward the tips. Once this is completed, put a drop of oil in the pivot area and spread a drop on the length of each blade.  

Daily oiling and cleaning will enhance the performance and extend the cutting life of your scissor. Regular cleaning and lubrication protects against rust and deterioration from chemical/moisture contact in the salon environment, build-up of bacteria attracting debris in the interior pivot and blade area, reduces friction from blade movement, and prolongs sharpness. Always check the tension after cleaning. 

Holding the finger side of the shear in your left hand, lift the thumb handle with your right hand until the blades are fully open, and let it go. If it does not fall more then 20% of the way closed, the tension is good. If the blade falls more than 20% of the way closed, on a high quality shear, it is too loose..
