As summer approaches, so does the demand of keratin smoothing services. As many salon owners know, these services are highly effective at taming frizzy, unmanageable hair for extended periods of time for their clients. One caveat, of course, is the sensory irritation that often comes with overexposure to formaldehyde vapors & fumes related to keratin hair smoothing services.
When properly implemented, source capture ventilation is highly effective at removing these formaldehyde vapors & fumes from the stylist’s (and client’s) breathing zone. This type of system uses a capture hood to draw vapors & fumes into the system locally and adsorb and decompose them via 3 stage filtration and high energy field (ionizer). Although, a source capture system does not capture 100% of the formaldehyde vapors and fumes. Any residual vapors that reside can be captured by supplemental air purification in the salon room in addition to an activated carbon impregnated filter for the building HVAC system. Source capture ventilation in conjunction with these additional ventilation control measures is known as a “3 Zone Approach” to improving salon air quality.
Sound complicated? It’s not. Check out the video below to fully explain how 3 Zone Protection works and how to best implement it in your salon. With proper use and maintenance, the salon is not only protecting the respiratory health of their staff, but also has in place a powerful marketing tool they can use to assure current and future clients their keratin hair smoothing services are performed in a safe and effective manner.

Think of the air in the salon as being split up into three different “zones”. The first zone, called your “breathing zone” is a beach ball sized sphere of air from which you take every breath. The second “zone” can be called your “room zone”. This zone contains you, your staff and your clients. The third zone is called your “general building zone”. This zone includes your building heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system, also known as your HVAC system.
Nail salon industry expert and scientist Doug Schoon lays out in simple terms the most effective way to protect these zones of air in your nail salon. There are also new Nails Manufacturer Council on Safety (NMC) guidelines available to nail professionals on how to properly clean your salon air using control measures for all 3 zones of the salon.

The importance of a healthy salon environment cannot be overstated. It is not only important for the safety and comfort of your stylists, but for your clients as well. Day in and day out, today’s stylists are working in a salon environment that exposes them to airborne chemicals which can cause “sensory irritation” issues and adversely affect their health, if proper salon ventilation is not provided. By removing harmful chemicals from the breathing zone, the Chemical Source Capture System prevents inhalation of vapors & fumes that occur during keratin smoothing services, color, permanent wave and other chemical hair treatments.
