Oiling and cleaning your hairdressing scissors

It is extremely important to keep your scissors oiled at all times. However a special oil must be used as ordinary oils are normally made from petroleum and , this leaves a very sticky residue which will actually “gum up” the scissors. Ordinary oils also contain impurities such as sulfur, waxes, and unstable hydrocarbons which are left behind as residue deposits. This will make your scissors almost impossible to work with.

Our scissor oil is custom-designed to produce the ultimate lubricant for your scissors.

Oiling hairdressing Scissors Edge Revival scissor oil is completely odorless and maintains its molecular structure to over 180 degree Celsius with no evaporation or breakdown, and no smell or residue. 

Please contact us if you would like to buy our special scissor oil. It is available in 1 Oz. bottles.

The scissor should be cleaned  after each use and our scissor oil should be applied every day before starting to work.

The oil will keep the pivot area smooth and allow the blades to work smoothly together without damaging each other .

 If not oiled on a daily basis, hair and dirt will remain inside the scissor and build up. This will make  the scissor becomes sluggish  and the blades will be pushed away from each other so your scissor won’t work in a smooth way. Again, this will make the hairdresser push vertically with the thumb and the blades will get dull fast.

It only takes 3 seconds to oil your scissors – open scissor completely and add a drop of oil on the inside of the one blade on each side of the screw area. Do not make a big deal out of it with polishing etc. it is not necessary. Then also give one small drop of oil to the screw on the back of the scissor.
