Another precaution to keep in mind when using thinning shears. Is they should generally not be used on extremely coiled, curly, or wavy hair. Unfortunately, thinning out this type of hair using shears can cause hair of this type to “poof” or frizz out. Generally, the best option for those with excessively wavy or curly hair is to have layers added in order to thin it out and reduce weight.

DO Sharpen Shears as Need

Start with a quality pair of thinning shears and keep them maintained. The most important aspect of keeping thinning shears maintained is keeping the blade sharpened, which you can do manually with a sharpening kit. Over time, the blade will become dull, which can lead to poor cuts and even damage to the hair. The nice thing about thinning shears is that they only contain one blade (the other side is a comb-like device), so they’re relatively quick and easy to sharpen.

DON’T Overuse Thinning Shears

If you decide to thin out your hair using thinning scissors, keep in mind that moderation is key. You should only use thinning shears occasionally. Otherwise, your hair will gradually become too thin and your overall style will lose definition. When in doubt, ask your stylist if he or she thinks you could benefit from using thinning shears on your hair.
