Questioning your client about contraindications and recording responses

Remember, a contraindication is something that prevents you carrying out the treatment. It is vital that you ask your client if she suffers from any contraindications to establish whether it is safe to carry out the perm. Perming lotion can irritate sensitive or allergic skin and can be very painful if applied to skin with disorders such as psoriasis.


It is important to record your client’s responses to the questions you ask about contraindications in order to have proof that she was asked before the treatment in case of any problems which may occur during or after the perm. A good way of making sure that this is standard procedure in your salon is to have some standard contraindication questions printed on your client’s record card, which can be ticked when they have been asked. You should also ask your client to sign the record card to validate that the questions were asked and their responses were accurately recorded.
