Up to 70 per cent of hairdressers suffer from work-related skin damage such as dermatitis at some point during their career - most cases are absolutely preventable.
Bad hand day campaign
Successful celebrity hairdresser, Mark Hill says:
Buying and wearing non-latex gloves to protect our hands from skin damage makes good business sense.
It's simple to cut out dermatitis; use disposable gloves, dry your hands thoroughly and moisturise to keep your hands healthy.
Hairdressers in our glove trial survey say:
- 80 per cent found the longer length, non-latex gloves comfortable to wear.
- 74 per cent noted that they could still handle clients' hair freely without snagging.
- 62 per cent said they will wear the gloves for wet work in the future.
