Some of the toughest things to discuss with clients are common scalp and skin hygiene issues. When is the best time to speak to your clients about their hair problems or how long should you wait to speak to your clients about it? For starters, we should always make the first effort and attempt to speak to our clients about these issues. You can earn the trust of your clients the moment you confidently address their needs and concerns, but more importantly, by providing your expert advise on their current situation. The reality is that most clients won't talk about their hair problems until they feel the relief of knowing they're in the care of their very own specialist. Sure, they will tell you what they want as the final result but we can all agree that clients are a bit more hesitant to speak first about hygiene issues.
Let's take a look at some identifying factors and best practices when speaking with clients to identify whether or not they're knowledgeable about their hair care.
Tip of the Day: A white sink (whether porcelain, etc.) will show a greater degree of impurities from the hair/skin/scalp than a black sink would.
Products and proper product usage is the best way to either help control, alleviate or eliminate any of the issues noted above. If you struggle in the area of identifying hair problems, don't be afraid to ask your questions in the comments below or seek continuing education and advice to study the best results per situation.
