About Nail Structure And Product Chemistry

Product Description Nail Structure & Chemistry, 2E is a unique text that explores the artificial and natural nail in an interesting and easy-to-understand manner. The only book of its kind available, it brings together authoritative information from diverse fields including dermatology; toxicology; anatomy and physiology; chemistry; physics; and materials science to provide the reader with a deeper understanding of nails. The information covers a wide range of topics including the growth and structure of the natural nail; normal versus abnormal natural nails, nail disorders; the chemistry of artificial nail products, nail polishes, and treatments; the use of electric files; understanding and avoiding skin allergies; improving ventilation; and much, much more. Authored by a leading research scientist in this field, the text serves as an informational guide for anyone interested in learning more about how and why professional nail products work; how to troubleshoot, understand and solve most common salon problems; why products sometimes don't work and how to avoid these problems; how to give clients trouble-free nails/services, and more. Updated to include discussions of new products, services, problems, and misunderstandings in the field, and filled with four-color photographs that illustrate key concepts, this easy-to-read book provides answers to many questions regarding the science and technology of nails. Review Information on chemistry is very complete, understandable, and presented in an interesting manner. I especially like the awareness of the importance of protecting workers against carcinogenic vapors. About the Author Douglas D.
