I received the clippers and immediately put it to work. My son's hair grows very quickly so it's usually a weekly fight to give him a cut. I "bribed" him to be part of the test of these clippers. For the first time he didn't freak out! He usually complains about his hair being pulled with the clippers we used to use. He didn't say a word about it using the new clippers. They are very well built and quiet. I expect these clippers to last for quite a while. Definitely worth purchasing! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
About every 20 cuts or so, when you begin to feel some pulling rather than just cutting, although you can't see it, hair accumulates between the blades. Remove the bottom, and gently pry the blades apart, and with the brush remove the hair between the blades. Believe me, the blades are still sharp, you just needed to remove the unseen gap caused by the hidden hairs.
I mostly use mine as a razor, shaving w/o an attachment. It leaves a 5 o'clock shadow...which I prefer to the "baby's-butt" look.
Especially for the expense, this is a GREAT product!
This is just what you need to get started with learning to cut your child's hair.
Comes with the right kind of scissors and the clipper for getting the little tuffs on the neck.
Really was nervous at first but with this kit was no problem and a real money saver when you have several children like I do. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
