Although nutrition is a familiar term, many people are unaware of the complexity of nutrition and how many components are needed to help the body function. In addition, nutrition and the overall idea of health are rarely discussed when considering problems common in hair, nails, and skin. Having an understanding of how nutrition affects the hair, nails, and skin is important for cosmetologists to be able to counsel clients or refer them to their healthcare provider when they are experiencing the issues discussed throughout this course. Through this knowledge, cosmetologists are in a unique position to have an impact on their clients' lives and are able to help them become healthier individuals through their chosen profession.
This course is designed for all salon professionals.
Used in the salon or spa, aromatherapy can help clients to relax, help lift moods, soothe sore muscles and feet, be used in shampoos, creams and massage oils, and much more. Aromatherapy can provide many health benefits when used correctly and responsibly. It is always important to remember that, while natural, essential oils and aromatherapy can affect one's health positively or negatively, depending on the respect and care that the aromatherapist has for the work that they do. Used in the wrong way, oils can have serious health consequences and, while rare, can even cause death. However, the use of aromatic plants and essential oils throughout history has shown the great importance aromas and our sense of smell have on our general well-being.
