The learning resource thread

Post by Seana on Tue Oct 06, 2015 9:01 pm

The one thing I've felt is missing here, is a comprehensive list of resources for learning, and it's the aim of this thread to help overcome that. I'm hoping this thread will at somepoint turn into a sticky because of it's importance in putting together in one place, a list of resources that people have found useful in learning.

What I would like to see here is the following:
Links to articles or ebooks that demonstrate the technique and issues that are helpful in learning electrolysis
Links to posts on the forums here or elsewhere, that people have found useful in learning.
Links to some of the resources that the professionals here have developed for their own sites that are useful to the learning electrolysist that may not be listed here
Links to specific youtube videos that are useful in learning technique.
Short descriptions stating what is contained in your link and why it is found useful.

What I'm specifically trying to avoid in this post is general chitchat. I want to try and keep the topics listed here useful, and minimize excessive noise that may reduce the list's usefulness. Therefore if you are discussing the validity of any link posted here or other aspects, please make a new thread rather than cluttering this one up. Thanks!
Also it is worth perusing the main electrolysis guide for tht site located here:
as it discusses some topics like pain control, electrolysis complications, dangers of electrolysis including high frequency blowout, and information on choosing an electrolysist.Note that I have found at least one of the articles outdated, and inaccurate so be careful of this information source and double check facts elsewhere.


This video shows insertions performedon the chin. My guess is that they are using thermolysis, as they are proceeding very quickly.It ws designed as part of a refresher course for electrolysists

this is a similar link to above, but I note it here because in the video you see the root sheath come out on the hair perfectly. Good video on what you should be seeing when you remove the hair.

This short list of youtube videos was compiled by another internet contributor :

I know there are lots of just 'random clips', but each one shows me something either in technique or it 'inspires' me to understand how to do what I'm seeing and or goal to be able to work like that electrologist. And, as a 'newby' I'm ALWAYS looking to learn more and more to become as proficient as I can in this field. Anyhow... this is most of mine... I know I've seen a few other that I like, I just can't find them on my history list...

Ontario Canada guidlines on infection control, sterilization proceedures and requirements for electrolysis:

This entire page is a huge wake up call and well documented with substantial empirical evidence. I want to thank susan the author for presenting the information in such a complete and well documented manner. This link, is a must read.

I located a newer version of the electrolysis training guide from sterex, this is now located here:

The following list is a newish update to this list and comes from Rea at . Rea maintains a periodic blog on her site that is chock full of information for learners and seasoned professionals alike. Her blog is located at:

Of particular interest to learners will be the following resources:
A review of Principles & Techniques for the Electrologist by Ann Gallant
A review of Milady's har removal guide by Helen Bickmore
This article is discussing aftercare
A review of more electrolysis textbooks
More textbook review
Discussion of tweezer maintenance
It's possible this article on treating trans women was written by yours truly Smile It is in response to this one:
An article on when electrolysis goes wrong...
Yep, more Seana posting  this time regarding electrolysis legislation , specifically in canada
This article on electrolysis on black skin.
More on electrolysis regulation, this time from Rea

Take some time to go through month my month on the right and see what articles are there.There's lots of fantastic material at Rea's site.

To add to this list, just post! I would ask though, as links sometimes do change, and have to be relocated  that you include a short description  and title of the document or video file so that if it disappears we can locate it again  or delete it if it's a dead link. Thanks!


New Addition:

Credit for this link goes to my partner nightfrost who came upon it. Lots of good reading and explanations in here.

Start here on electrolysis:

Then continue here on thermolysis and the blend:
