Why My Hairdressing Scissors Are Catching?

Why my hairdressing scissors are catching?

 There are several reasons why your hairdressing scissors may be catching:

  1. Dull blades: Over time, the blades of your scissors can become dull due to wear and tear. This can cause the blades to catch on hair instead of smoothly cutting through it.

  2. Loose screw: The screw that holds the two blades together may have become loose, causing the blades to rub against each other and catch on hair.

  3. Rust or debris: If your scissors are not cleaned and maintained properly, rust or debris can build up on the blades, causing them to catch on hair.

  4. Improper technique: If you are not holding the scissors correctly or not using them in the proper cutting technique, this can cause the blades to catch on hair.

To fix the issue, you can try sharpening the blades or tightening the screw. If there is rust or debris on the blades, you can clean them with a soft cloth and some rubbing alcohol. Additionally, make sure you are using the proper technique when cutting hair. If the problem persists, it may be time to replace your scissors.

There could be a few reasons why your hairdressing scissors are catching. One possibility is that the blades are not sharp enough. Over time, the blades of scissors can become dull due to frequent use, and this can cause them to catch and pull hair instead of cutting smoothly. Another possibility is that the blades are not properly aligned. If the blades are not properly aligned, they can scrape against each other as you cut, causing them to catch on hair. You may need to have your scissors sharpened or adjusted by a professional to fix the issue.
