How come hair shears get rusty?

Hair shears can get rusty due to exposure to moisture or humidity, which causes oxidation of the metal. Hair-cutting shears are typically made of steel, which contains iron that reacts with oxygen and moisture in the air to form iron oxide or rust.

 When hair shears are exposed to water or humidity, the moisture can penetrate the surface of the metal and reach the inner layers, leading to oxidation and rusting. Additionally, hair shears may also become rusty if they are not properly cleaned and dried after use, or if they are stored in a damp environment.

To prevent hair shears from getting rusty, it's important to keep them dry and clean after each use. Wipe them down with a dry cloth or a clean towel, and store them in a dry place. Additionally, you can apply a thin layer of oil to the blades to protect them from moisture and oxidation.
