Why it's important to use your own clippers.

The next time you head to the barber for a chiskop, ensure you have your own hair clippers.

This is because you are most vulnerable to nasty skin ailments if your barber fails to sterilise his clippers properly. The close shave can often leave irregular, raised scars – called keloids – on the back of the head. Thus it’s imperative to make sure your barber uses a clearly labelled steriliser or antiviral spray on clippers; methylated spirits are not enough. Otherwisetake your own clipper for him to use.
