Clients with Cancer: Considerations for Hair, Skin, and Nails

Clients with cancer have unique needs in terms of hair, skin, and nail care, and professionals should be aware of basic recommendations to best help these individuals. This course has provided an overview of the most common types of cancer therapies that affect the hair, skin, and as well as a more in-depth look at specific issues that affect these areas of the body. Care guidelines and suggestions for issues discussed have been outlined, with an emphasis on tailoring these guidelines to each client's individual needs. Finally, a review of client resources, including online resources specifically designed for individuals with cancer, has been provided. Given the unique emotional challenges faced by cancer patients, including lowered self-esteem, depression, and worry regarding their quickly changing appearance, salon professionals are in a unique position to help these people regain confidence and improve their outlook on daily life during this extremely difficult time.


This course is designed for all salon professionals with clients who have cancer or who are cancer survivors.
