What type of oil do I use for my hair clipper machine? pls help?

December 23, 2010

I bought a hair clipper machine that came w/ a small bottle oil that worked well, but I don’t know what it was since there was no company name or anything. I tried using WD40 oil on the blade of the machine and it kind of works, but it smells like car oil. Dumb idea, but thats all I could think of.. any suggestion on what I should use? or what do the professionals use at a barber shop to keep there blades cutting smooth? thanks

    try cool lube, this is for shears for animals, it will probably work for yours.

    Honestly.. I use regular vegetable / canola oil. No harm and i’ve been using it for a few years now. I put it on a Q-tip and oil up my clipper

    Any oil will work. If you don’t like the smell of the oil you use, there are many that are odourless. You want a very light oil, with a high burning point. Because there is a lot of heat built up with those moving blades, you want something that does not get as hot that quickly. Look for sewing machine oil — it is very light, lasts a long time, and is odourless.

    You can go to a local beauty supply store and find “clipper oil” in the salon I use Andis Clipper spray, I can’t remember the exact name of it. It sanitizes your clippers, cools the blades and lubricates the blades. Also you can buy just regular clipper oil at these kind of places also. Note- You need to keep the blades well lubricated but you don’t want to do it too much. I’d say oil your clippers every 20 haircuts or so. Hope I helped.
