Hairdressers handle dangerous chemicals on a daily basis. These chemicals are found within dyeing, bleaching and perming products. Some of the chemicals in the products are so toxic that they can cause illnesses that forces the hairdresser to quit his or her job. Currently they mix the products, apply them and wash them out at three different places.
H’air is a new work space providing a safe way of handling and using chemicals. By doing every single operation at the same place, under a integrated ventilation duct, the risk of inhaling hazardous fumes is minimised. Resulting in an improved work environment for hairdressers.
