Colorist Education, New Cosmetologist Education
Happy New Year! I have been reading more and more e-mails lately that tell me I have to find a way to get more education out there. New students have NO idea what PPD, PTD, or TDS is, let alone a seasoned colorist. (Okay, most DOCTORS don't know what it is, so why would hairdressers?) It is very overwhelming for me to even begin to think about how to address this situation. I have the information and knowledge to help train others to save a lot of people from being hurt, but how do I begin? I think this is more of a rant than an actual blog today. I have received 2 e-mails from people who said they were allergic to PPD but the colorist still used color with PPD because they were not properly educated. I hear this ALL the time. "No, you aren't allergic to that, it's the ammonia. let's try this." Before you know it, the client is in the emergency room with her eyes swollen shut, and she can't breath. Okay, I am not going to complain any more, I hope everyone is having a great new year!
