How to maintain your Sengo Shears?

To optimize the performance of your Sengo shears, please, clean and adjust them regularly.

Whether wet or dry only cut clean, human hair. Agree with your client on a wash of the hair before cutting to guarantee the best possible end result. Hair coated with fixatives (hair spray, mousse, etc.) or chemicals may harm the blades by creating nicks. Chemicals also deteriorate and rust the blades rendering them irreparable in the worse case.  Materials such as paper or even synthetic hair can damage the blades as well.

    • Keep your shears away from clips, brushes, combs, and other equipment  which can cause accidental damage to the blades.
    •  Avoid contact with any comb sterilization, colour or perm substances.
    • When not in use, ensure that the scissors remain closed to prevent accidental chipping of the edges.
    • If your shears no longer cut all the way to the tips or the blades grind together and pull or push the hair your scissors should be serviced.
    • Don’t leave your scissors in your working area.
    • Forcing shears through a thick hair could severely damage the edges. Make sure that the shears you are using are not too light for the task in hand.
    • Carefully rinse your scissors with warm water and dry them with a soft paper towel. Do not rub the sharp edges with the paper towel. Remove all hair and moisture, paying particular attention to the screw/pivot area.
    • Complete cleaning with the Sengo Shears cleaning wipe provided to you.
    • Check and adjust your shears’ tension.
Dropping shears
    • Dropping shears is very likely to cause damage. We can usually remove any nicks when re-sharpening but if the blades are bent the scissors may be irreparable.
How to sharpen your Sengo Shears?
    • All scissors must be sharpened once they start getting nicks or are not sharp enough anymore. It is important to bear in mind that there are no shears or scissors that wouldn´t ever need to be sharpened.
Please, contact your Sengo representative to get your pair of shears sharpened.
