Keratin Complex Smoothing Treatment
I have recently started offering the Keratin treatments and while the results are amazing the affects from breathing the fumes while flat ironing are concerning. Every time I do a treatment I start feeling irritation in my throat, lungs and eyes.
I did a treatment today about 10 hours ago and can't sleep because my heart is racing and my chest feels heavy. My throat hurts and I just don't feel well. My resting heart rate is 120 while laying in bed.
Needless to say I am up now doing more research on these Keratin and Brazilian treatments. It's too bad that the staff at the beauty supply places aren't more informed. I guess they wouldn't be selling much of the product if all the facts were plainly stated.
Has anyone used a mask while doing the flat iron process? I can't imagine my client wouldn't want the same protection if she sees me wearing one. And how would you strap one onto your client since you can't strap it around their head while you are ironing their hair. Have you ever seen the canister masks? They are big and bulky and I doubt a client is going to want to hold it to their face for an hour.
I'm frustrated and not feeling well and concerned for the health and safety of my clients and myself. But I love the results of the product! Anyone have some suggestions or comments?
