 Hair Structure and Chemistry Simplified, by John Halal

Hair Structure and Chemistry Simplified by John Halal

Most people are intimidated by chemistry because it’s usually presented with formulas, chemical symbols and long unpronounceable words, that seem to be written in some exotic, foreign language. Old wives tales and exaggerated marketing claims further confuse the issues by adding misinformation, that may be easy to understand, but is all too often incorrect.

Hair Structure and Chemistry Simplified separates fact from fiction and clears up the confusion. The direct approach overcomes the apprehension usually associated with learning chemistry. Professionals and consumers will find the information easy to understand and apply. The concepts presented in this book will empower you with the confidence that comes from knowing.

Tricoligia E A Quimica Cosmetica Capilar, John Halal

HS&C PortugeseA maioria dos cabeleireiros tem pouca dificuldade em aprender os detalhes das ferramentas mecânicas da profissão: tesouras, escovas, pranchas e secadores. Este livro aplica o mesmo nível de importância às ferramentas químicas: mecanismos para coloração capilar, soluções para ondulações permanentes, relaxantes e alisantes químicos, xampus, condicionadores e produtos para estilização dos cabelos. Embora essas ferramentas tenham elevada importância no cotidiano dos profissionais de beleza, elas normalmente são mal interpretadas e mal compreendidas quanto às reações químicas que podem provocar no cabelo. Tricologia e a química cosmética capilar é o livro mais atual, abrangente e direto desse segmento. Ele explica de forma minuciosa a teoria e a aplicação dos conceitos essenciais da cosmetologia moderna e da química do cabelo, que geralmente não são abordadas em outros livros. Neste livro você encontra informações sobre os produtos utilizados atualmente nos grandes centros de beleza do mundo.
