Health Risks to Cosmetologists

 
Many substances in salon products position probable health risks. Examples of hazardous chemicals found in common treatments (e.g. hair coloring, straightening, perms, relaxers, keratin treatments, Brazilian Blowouts, and nail treatments) include dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, lye (sodium hydroxide), ammonia, and coal tar. Antipathies and dermatitis have forced approximately 20% of hairdressers to stop practicing their profession. In the beauty and cosmetology productions, some of the products used in shock peroxides and spike applications contain substances that have been shown to have antagonistic health effects for cosmetologists. A chemical amalgamation known as the toxic trio is often part of the ingredient list in nail polish, hair dyes, and nail polish removers. The toxic triad consists of formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate (DBP)
