Working with Sensitive Clients
Safety Precautions When Working with Sensitive Clients
* When working with immune-compromised patients it’s always advisable to request your client discuss your henna paste ingredient list with their physician before application.
When a person is undergoing chemotherapy or radiation, extremely strong drugs are being used. These drugs may leach out in sweat, urine, vomit, sneezing, etc. If you are concerned about your health and exposure discuss this with the client. It may be in the artists best interest to wear gloves to protect herself and a mask to prevent the client from illness or germs spread by the artist.
Clients with Baldness
Baldness may be caused by several factors:
If the client has peach fuzz or small hairs it can be extremely challenging to henna over the hairs as they disrupt the henna paste. The outcome is often better if the client has a freshly shaved head.
Henna is generally safe to be applied during a healthy pregnancy in the Third Trimester.
When working with clients that are immune-compromised the gentlest ingredients should be used. This is never a time to cut corners or buy cheap, low quality ingredients.
Use the highest quality products available for your henna paste.
This means NATURAL HENNA POWDER from a trusted reliable source, appropriate essential oils, and lemon juice, water or apple juice.
Generally, products sold on Ebay or Amazon are not pure, natural or the highest quality.
Top tier artist-suppliers who specialize in henna will always have the best product available.
Can be extremely strong and some can cause serious burns, skin irritations, uterine contractions and bleeding so you must be very mindful what you use.
Bulgarian Lavender Essential oil is generally believed to be the most mild essential oil, and it yields great color for henna stains!
Essential oils are an active ingredient in your henna paste, this is not an ingredient that should be downgraded on quality to save money - price and quality are important.
Use Bulgarian Lavender essential oil with less than 3% camphor content for safety with cancer patients.
Liquid additions to henna paste should be limited to lemon juice, water or apple juice. Coffee, tea, lime juice, grapefruit juice, etc. are not necessary or beneficial additions and in some cases can interfere with medications.
