The spatula wood will almost certainly be from renewable sources. Pine is usually gathered from managed forests so there´s no environmental problem here Pine is grown to be cut down and used.Hi everyone..
you could end up using 100 spatulas or more a day and although the cost is not a huge problem I think the fact that the spatulas are wood is damaging to the environment.
I raised the same question with my friend who works in a salon. She always used a pot and spatula until her boss thought they should try PHD system. They bought it, all trained and now none of them use it. The clients complained saying it wasn't as effective and nipped the skin - especially in the bikini line area. She said it was expensive also. They have it in the salon still but the clients prefer the original method and so they continue to use pot and spatula and re-dip. They leave the phd system there to show the health and safety people so it looks like they are trying!!!!
My conclusion is that I will use a new spatula each time but I do think it will take some getting used to habits are hard to break.
I guess it all just depends on where we train? Seems like it vary's a bit?!Well this is a new one on me. I only graduated last year and was not taught to use a new spatula for each dip in the pot, only if there was blood spotting were we to use a new spatula.
I shall use a new one for each dip from now on. Thanks everyone.
I wax my own legs and bikini line all the time with my PHD. It doesn´t hurt and it definitely gets all the hair out - no problem. So, either me and Kooky are the world´s best waxers (unlikely!) or we´ve just got the hang of using the system.I always use a new spatular every time as that's what I was taught. I looked into PHD so decided to go to some salons to try it. I have been to 3 local salons that used the PHD system and I HATE it. I'm not sure if all 3 are using it incorrectly but it was so uncomfortable and felt like it was dragging on my skin and just was not hot enough. One therapist even had to wax my legs twice to get all the hairs out despite my protesting not to & that I would just leave it. None of these Salons knew I was a therapist, I just keep shut then never go there again for waxing!
All those of you that use PHD and said it's great, have I just had bad experiences or have any of you not experienced it from a clients point of view?
Double ewwwwwwww... unfortunatley this forum doesn´t seem to have a puking smiley. :lol:They were doing a bottom and then a wax sack and crack on celebrity scissor hands last night and they were re dipping for that.
Makes you laugh really doesn't it ,how many of us actually do this and yet every time they have any therapists on the tv they are always waxing bums :lol: Good tv i suppose.(Or maybe not)Double ewwwwwwww... unfortunatley this forum doesn´t seem to have a puking smiley. :lol:
That´s one wax treatment I will never, ever be offering *shudders at the thought*
That's awful! I hope that you're on the road to recovery.Hi,
I am a client and just came across this forum via a Google search. FYI- I recently acquired MRSA through an eyebrow wax. This is terrible! MRSA is serious business! So, glove up and no double-dipping, ladies! Wash your hands before and after each client. I have no clue how this is going to affect my life in the long term, but is has only been about a week or so and it has been pure H*ll so far.
Figure out the excess costs these items will cost you and add it to your rates. In the long run, it is better for everyone.
