RSI and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Hairdresser’s diseases and more: the number one cause for absenteeism…
Sooner or later you will get them too, physical complaints by fulfilling your work and passion as a hairdresser. In many cases this leads to short term abandoning your job, or even worse; long term or definite abandoning.
Besides the fact you will not be able to fully enjoy your work, it is a real big cost item for the hairdressing industry. It might be clear, that for employers it is very rewarding as well to guide their employees as much as possible when choosing their scissors and tools and not to try to save on the costs of a good scissor. This is a winning situation for both sides, because as an employee you will be able to do your job without suffering so much, short and long term.
As a professional, you are most likely known with these diseases because you or one of your close coworkers suffered from one of these diseases. That’s why this blog isn’t telling about what these diseases are like, but about what to do to prevent yourself for them.
You can’t buy health, but you can buy a good, affordable scissor.
The right scissor: up to 85% less harm
Make sure to choose an ergonomic scissor! A good scissor eases the pressure on wrist and shoulder because of its special fit. If needed, you can even pick a scissor with a swivel thumb. Try not to focus too much on the scissor’s look, a fancy scissor is cool but it’s more important for a scissor to feel good. Take your time when picking your new, most important tool and let your feelings take the lead instead of your eyes.
3D curves and semi-convex cutting blades
At Kyone we want to go a little bit further to offer you the perfect scissor. Our 3D scissors come with the best possible ergonomic curves and thickening on multiple parts of the scissors to support the hand, arm and shoulder.
Fancy screws and fashionable colors are fun to see, but a scissor’s efficiency really is in its ergonomics. Of course combined with a razor-sharp cutting blade, otherwise the effect of the ergonomics is yet almost null.
Kyone scissors have semi-convex cutting blades. An unique angle, the correct resistance of the cutting blades and the ergonomics cause our scissors to be real-time premium tools, which are even affordable. Kyone is well known for the best value for money and the least resistance during the cutting.
Service and care: a must!
Daily cleaning and oil in time
Like you might already know it is very important to take care of your scissor. Not only for the life-time of the scissor but also for its ergonomic function.
Make sure to clean your scissor at least once a day with a dry wipe, do this when your done working if you do it only once a day. Besides, the screws needs to be oiled once a week. A drop of oil a week will do magic for your scissor to run smooth and the oil will remove dirt between the cutting blades as well.
Service: have it sharpened
We recommend you to have your scissors sharpened every 1-1,5 year. Every scissor gets dull by the time, a dull scissor needs a lot more pressure to be used in the same way as a normal, sharpened scissor. A dull scissor is a big risk for creating physical complaints.
We often see scissors that haven’t been sharpened for 2 to 3 years, the cutting performances of these scissors can be around 50% to 75% less. Sharpening a scissor also makes it possible to slice again without having to put too much pressure on the scissor.
A dull scissor is a guarantee for causing complaints from your customers as well, besides the physical pains you will get yourself as a hairdresser.
So it is way better to prevent yourself from diseases like this than having to treat them afterwards.
Adjusting your screws
There is often not enough tension on a scissors’ screw, that means you will have to put a lot of pressure on the cutting blades, which is very bad for the scissor and its ergonomic effects.
A scissor should open very easily without using a lot of pressure or hair folding double. When there’s too much tension on the screws, you will have to use too much pressure to open and close the scissor, which is very exhausting.
There are a lot of sources that could be a risk in creating multiple diseases, dull scissors to bad ergonomics or bad care. Make sure to use good quality products which will do good for you and the job.

Elegant convex cutting blades
All good cutting scissors have convex cutting blades and hollow insides: the exterior of the cutting blades are convex, at Kyone we make our convex blades with a 35 degrees angle. (usually 45 degrees is the standard) This angle ensures a fine cutting blade and a longtime sharp scissor which is perfect for cutting and slicing.

Curved or straight teeth?
All good coupe scissors have curved teeth to perfectly upright touch the cutting blade. Every tooth has three tiny teeth for extra grip to prevent the hair from sneaking out. The first tooth is meant to prevent the teeth from hooking in the cutting blade, this causes the scissor to run smooth without frixion. Many producers only use three teeth in their most expensive scissors because the production is complicated, expensive and takes a lot of time.
The 780T coupe scissors has 30 teeth and is a real finishing scissors. Smooth fades and even cuts. The scissor is very easy to control and use. The semi-convex sharpened cutting blade has the curves of a slice scissors, which causes it to run smooth without a lot of frixion.

The Ultimate Power Cutting Tool
Kyone Cord C-50
Powerful, light weight and slim-fit, three words to describe the Cord C-50 very well. The Kyone C-50 Cord clipper is a very beloved clipper by hairdressers in Europe, a real professional’s choice.
The C-50 is an extremely sustainable clipper for easy use by men and women but the clipper is because of its powerful 28Watt motor also very suitable for heavy duty barber work. The DCR-motor runs 6500RPM, which is a great performance.
The blades of the clipper belong to the world’s top because of the unique combination of steel/ceramic and a polymer coating for even more sharpness and a long durability. This causes the clipper to be the perfect tool for example for fade-cuts and buzz-cuts.

High performance motor
By using a powerful DCR-motor, the clipper runs with as little as possible vibrations and it doesn’t get as hot as an old fashioned magnetic motor. In comparison, our rotary motor is a 28Watt motor as an old fashioned magnetic motor uses about 14Watt. The DCR-motor is an advanced motor that generates 50% more power than magnetic motors. That’s why the clipper is very suitable for heavy duty -bulk removal for example- and wet or dry hair.
Ceramic Polymer cutting blades
Everybody knows that ceramic cutting blades are way sharper than steel, also, the durability of ceramic cutting blades is way better. Ceramics are more quiet and produce less heat. This heat can be over 75% more with steel blades.
Because of the ceramic blades, the clipper is a real precision instrument with smooth curves. A sharper cutting blade stands for better fades and less split-ends. According to the International Barber Association, the Kyone Cord C-50 is a real pleasure to work with.

A good hairdryer is essential for the professional, and of course we prefer to use a hairdryer that does not apply any, or as little harm as possible to the hair.
An infrared hairdryer, how does it work?
Infrared is a deep-penetrating light technology that infuses the heat inside of the cuticle, not on the surface of the hair shaft which is usually the case with a normal hair dryer. This decreases the drying time by 50%.
By this treatment technology, the hair retains its natural moisture. The treatment technology causes the hair’s cuticle layer to close quicker, resulting in repair of damaged and treated hair, ultimate color protection and a glossy look.
What are the benefits?
The double infrared tube produces the same amount of heat and airflow as a 2000 Watt hair dryer.
However, the infrared hair dryer generates a more gentle and healing heat into the hair.
This makes the hair stronger and practically unbreakable and also prevents split-ends.
The treatment also improves the blood circulation, which prevents hair loss and gives you glossy, healthy-looking hair.
What is the difference with a normal hair dryer?
Well, this is what it looks like;
By the infrared tube, a repairing and deep-penetrating heat arises way faster.
The light technology treats the hair from the inside out. This decreases the drying time and the hair is being damaged less.
Instead, the gentle heat actually repairs the hair. This is why the infrared hair dryer is extremely suitable for colored or sensitive hair.
Uses 40% less energy
High efficiency: the 1200 Watt infrared hair dryer produces the same amount of heat as a 2000 Watt hair dryer.
It also turns 95% of the power into heat, which is way more compared to a normal hair dryer that uses far less of this percentage.
Green technology, uses 40% less energy, a 1200 Watt input with a 2000 Watt output.
In combination with a ceramic honeycomb and a tourmaline coating..
The technology used in the ceramic honeycomb and the tourmaline coating creates negative ions in the largest quantity possible.
Tourmaline is a precious stone that possesses unique ionic and infrared properties. It generates 400% more of these negative ions.
The ions close the hair’s cuticle layer, which makes the hair smooth and protects the natural moisture.
This treatment improves the strength and hardness of the hair. In short, more volume and a super smooth shine, and reduced frizz.
Because of this ceramic honeycomb..
Creates an airflow that conducts and concentrates heat evenly. Making it easier to focus the heat onto a specific area, without affecting other parts of the hair while working. This makes the hair dryer the ultimate precise styling tool as well.
Kyone ACI-2000 with a low EMF, what does that mean??
EMF, abbreviation for electromagnetic field, is a harmful radiation produced by all kinds of electronic devices. Our Kyone ACI-2000 infrared hairdryer has a lowered EMF level because of the infrared tube.
An infrared hairdryer produces less than 2mG, while a normal hairdryer produces up to 30mG to 200mG.
