Seeking assistance about contraindications and test results

You are here:Lessons - Perming and neutralising - Seeking assistance about contraindications and test results


We have discussed contraindications and the hair tests that may be necessary before a perm is carried out if you are doubtful about the hair or skin for any reason. Once you have identified a contraindication or have a problem test result, you need to know who you can ask for assistance from in your salon. It is important that this person knows how to assess both contraindications and hair test results and will normally be a more senior member of your salon team. If you are unsure what to do when you have one of the listed problems, you can ask this colleague to help you decide what action to take with your client.
