ASSEMBLY MEMBERS CHUI AND BURKE INTRODUCE THE REPRODUCTIVE FACT ACT
We are visiting beauty salons in Inglewood and South Los Angeles to survey workers on their occupational exposures and health concerns. Hair stylists regularly handle products that contain toxic chemicals that over time can have damaging effects. For example, our research has uncovered that high rates of miscarriages and uterine fibroids in salon workers could be linked to repeated handling of hair relaxers.
The goal of the Healthy Hair Initiative is to train salon workers on how to protect themselves from occupational hazards and to eventually move towards the creation of greener salons.
