Abstract

In several countries beauty and/or hairdressing shops employ mainly women. The work may involve exposure to many chemicals, often in combination. Guidotti et al. (1982) presented an extensive list of shampoos, dyes, conditioners, permanent-wave solutions, polish removers, nail polishes, makeups, hair sprays, and artificial nails, each of these in turn containing different chemical compounds. Beauticians/hairdressers may also be exposed both occupationally and as consumers.
