Scissor Maintenance 

Wipe shears after every use and clean them at the end of each day.  Chemicals can dull your blades.

Oil shears daily.

Check tension daily and adjust as needed.  If the shear bends hair it usually means that the shear is too loose.  New shears will need adjustment after the first few cuts as the screws and washers set in place.

Keep blades closed when not in use or when setting the shear down.  An open shear exposes the fragile edges to nicks or bends.

Only cut hair.  Any other material can bend or nick the edges.

Store shears in a case.

Check edges for nicks by gently running the tip of your finger nail along the blades.

Service when needed.
