||Recent small-scale investigations into the prevalence of dermatitis among hairdressers in the Netherlands have helped to give some indication of the magnitude of the problem. During the period 1989-1992, patch tests on a total of 103 hairdressers indicated that glyceryl thioglycolate (GTG), ammonium persulfate and nickel sulfate were responsible for the majority of the positive reactions. Positive reactions were also found for hair dyes and preservatives, cocamidopropyl betaine and sodium coco hydrolyzed animal protein. It is emphasized that contamination of hairdressing salons with GTG may explain the flare-ups in GTG-sensitized hairdressers who no longer use GTG solutions.
