Biggest Causes of Salon Injuries/Infections
There are a number of reasons that you could end up injured or infected after a trip to the salon. Some of these reasons include insufficient or improper training, out of date products such as chemicals, wax, and lotions. It’s the responsibility of the salon shop owner(s) to ensure that everything is in place such as the level of training the staff has received to the life expectancy of the salon’s products.
Failure to conduct pretreatment skin patch tests can cause serious implications. Most chemical applications instruct the technician to perform a skin patch before moving on with the entire procedure. Skin patch tests determine whether the customer will suffer an allergic reaction to the chemical, so it’s highly imperative that they are carried out. Failure to do so can result in infection, loss of hair, allergies or severe burns. Unsanitary instruments are another reason many customers end up with infections. It’s highly important that salon employees sterilize their equipment to prevent spreading germs.
