While you pink shears don’t need any extra special care, just remember the following basic care tips for shears and they’ll stay stunning.
Chrome or coloured, shears like a little love in the following form.
Wipe off any chemicals from colours and treatments after each cut. At the end of the day, use a soft dry towel to remove all hair and traces of moisture. Once the shears are clean and dry, store them in their case rather than in a drawer or on the counter.
Even though your shears are well protected overnight, always check the tension before starting work the next day. If the tension is too tight while you’re cutting it can cause permanent damage to the blade. And if you feel any resistance while cutting, stop and check the tension.
Scissors should be oiled weekly or after using any cleaning solution. Without an oil barrier, the shears are susceptible to corrode with a pitted appearance damaging the shears. Rust spots can also appear on shears that don’t see any oil. Only use professional scissor oil, clipper oil isn’t the same.
Have a professional sharpen your shears every 3-12 months depending on how much you use them and they will see you cutting in style for many years.
