We all know that keratin treatments are here to stay, but do we know how to make them safe for stylists and their clients? Luckily word is getting out that when the proper steps are taken, keratin treatments can be performed safely and become a backbone service for salons and a life-changer for their customers.
In an article in this months issue of Beauty Launchpad Magazine authored by Alyson Osterman-Kerr, John Henshaw, lead scientific adviser for the Professional Keratin Smoothing Council (PKSC) explains how to avoid sensory irritation by taking the proper steps while performing keratin treatments, centering squarely on proper ventilation. Mr. Henshaw states:
“In general, when using proper ventilation and correct treatment procedures, many of these products can be used safely without sensory irritation.”
So there it is again. Ventilation, ventilation, ventilation. The PKSC has once again stated that proper salon ventilation is the central safety measure in a list of procedures to ensure safe salon air while performing brazilian keratin treatments. By capturing and eliminating the vapors at the source, and then supplementing that protection with a work station unit and salon-specific HVAC filters for the whole salon, the worries of providing keratin treatments will truly be a thing of the past.
