One common mistake people make when using thinning shears is deciding to thin out wet or dry hair.
This article doesn’t have to be a long guide on using thinning scissors on wet and dry hair, as we have other articles that talk more about using thinners and texturizing shears.
Hair thinning scissors can be used on wet and dry hair, but experts and professional hairstylists will recommend using them on dry hair.
As you use thinning and texturising scissors at the end of the haircut, you will need to blow-dry the wet hair before using thinning shears on them.
If you use thinning scissors on wet hair that has just been washed, the strands of hair are weaker and more prone to breakage and damage.
Hair clumps together when wet, making it harder to thin out the right amount of hair.
The most significant danger with thinning scissors is over-using them and causing hair damage.
So make sure that you use thinning scissors on dry hair so that you can avoid damage and over-using (thinning out) the hair.
