    Explanation
    It is important to monitor the water temperature before applying it to the client's scalp to ensure that it is not too hot or too cold, as extreme temperatures can be uncomfortable or even cause harm to the client. This step is necessary to ensure the client's safety and comfort during the hair washing process.

    Which of the following is/are true of removing tangles from the hair?

    • A.

      Start at lowest point of tangled area

    • B.

      Start at the scalp and progress toward the ends of hair

    • C.

      Use long, firm strokes

    • D.

      Start at the highest point of the tangled area

    Correct Answer
    A. Start at lowest point of tangled area
    Explanation
    When removing tangles from the hair, it is recommended to start at the lowest point of the tangled area. This is because starting from the lowest point allows for a more gentle and effective detangling process. If you start at the scalp and progress toward the ends of the hair, it may cause more pulling and discomfort. Using long, firm strokes can also help to minimize breakage and make the process smoother. Starting at the highest point of the tangled area would not be as effective as starting from the lowest point.

      Plastic or waterproof cape

      Cloth cape

    • C.

      Double-layered cloth cape

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Plastic or waterproof cape
    Explanation
    A plastic or waterproof cape is generally used for shampooing, wet hair cutting, wet styling, or chemical services. This type of cape provides protection from water and chemicals, ensuring that the client's clothes remain dry and unaffected during these processes. Plastic or waterproof capes are easy to clean and maintain, making them a practical choice for these specific hair services.

    This type of water contains minerals and does not allow shampoo to lather freely:

    • A.

      Warm

    • B.

      Cold

    • C.

      Soft

    • D.

      Hard

    Correct Answer
    D. Hard
    Explanation
    Hard water contains minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which can interfere with the lathering ability of shampoo. These minerals react with the soap in the shampoo, forming a scum that prevents the shampoo from producing a rich lather. As a result, shampoo does not spread easily and may not effectively clean the hair and scalp.

    • A.

      Blood circulation

      Relaxation

    • C.

      The hair shaft

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Blood circulation

Additionally, scalp massage can also help to relieve tension and promote relaxation by reducing stress and anxiety.

    What type of shampoo cleanses the hair without correcting any special conditions?

      All-purpose

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    A. All-purpose
    Explanation
    An all-purpose shampoo is designed to cleanse the hair without targeting any specific hair conditions. It is a general shampoo that can be used by anyone regardless of their hair type or specific needs. It is meant to remove dirt, oil, and product buildup from the hair, leaving it clean and refreshed. Unlike medicated shampoos that are formulated to treat specific scalp conditions or clarifying shampoos that deeply cleanse and remove excess buildup, an all-purpose shampoo is a basic cleansing option suitable for everyday use.

    What type of shampoo is used to remove residue such as product build-up?

    • A.

      Liquid dry

    • B.

      Powder dry

    • C.

      Clarifying

    • D.

      Plain

    Correct Answer
    C. Clarifying
    Explanation
    Clarifying shampoo is specifically designed to remove residue and product build-up from the hair. It contains ingredients that help to deep cleanse the hair and scalp, effectively removing any build-up caused by styling products, oils, and environmental pollutants. This type of shampoo is more powerful than regular shampoos and is recommended to be used occasionally to maintain the health and cleanliness of the hair. Liquid dry, powder dry, and plain shampoos do not have the same cleansing properties as clarifying shampoo, making clarifying the correct choice for removing residue.

    Avoid giving a scalp massage:

    • A.

      Two weeks after a chemical service

    • B.

      Immediately prior to a chemical service

    • C.

      One month following a chemical service

    • D.

      One month prior to a chemical service

    Correct Answer
    B. Immediately prior to a chemical service
    Explanation
    Scalp massages can stimulate blood flow and increase the absorption of chemicals into the scalp. Therefore, it is not recommended to give a scalp massage immediately prior to a chemical service, as it may enhance the absorption of the chemicals used during the service and potentially cause irritation or damage to the scalp.

      Instant

      Moisturizing

    • C.

These conditioners provide a quick and temporary solution by forming a protective layer on the hair surface. They are designed to provide immediate hydration and make the hair appear smoother and more manageable. However, they do not provide long-lasting benefits or address deeper hair issues.

    • D.

      Both a and b

    Correct Answer
    D. Both a and b
    Explanation
    Conditioners provide a temporary remedy for hair problems by fortifying the damaged areas of the hair and protecting it against further damage from chemical services or heat. This means that conditioners help to strengthen and repair damaged hair while also providing a protective barrier to prevent further damage. By doing both of these things, conditioners can improve the overall health and appearance of the hair.
