Infection Control and Safety
In addition to all of the infection control and safety guidelines that you looked at earlier in this chap-
ter, following are some additional points to consider:
1. Exercise caution when using thermal irons on chemically treated hair. Since this hair is more
sensitive, improper usage can cause damage. Wet sets are often recommended.
2. Test the temperature of thermal irons or pressing combs before applying them to the client's
3. Exercise extra caution when working with thermal styling tools near the hairline and
especially near the ears to avoid burning the client's skin.
4. Avoid having the teeth of the hot comb or brush come in contact with the client's scalp to
avoid burning and/or heat irritation.
5. Remember to disconnect or turn off all appliances and tuck all cords out of reach when
leaving your station unattended.
6. Use lower temperatures and shorter contact time on hair that has been chemically altered by
perms or color or shows signs of mechanical damage.
7. If you notice brown or black residue on implements, clean metal portions with fine steel wool
around the diameter of the barrel. Always use clean combs and brushes for each client.
8. If a burn occurs (on you or your client), flush with cold water and let the skin completely
cool. Blot dry and apply a first aid cream to the burn. If blisters appear, see a physician
immediately. This is a sign of a severe burn that can scar if left untreated.
9. Avoid pressing hair too often. Frequently pressed hair may suffer progressive hair breakage.
10. Thermal iron procedures are always performed on dry hair.
11. Protect the client's scalp from thermal irons by positioning a hard rubber or nonflammable
comb underneath the curling iron.
