Pretty Toxic: How You Can Protect Your Health
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Pretty Toxic shares stories and insights from research with Black hair salon workers, the impacts of occupational exposure, and what you can do as a professional or do-it-yourself hair stylist to protect your health! This workshop will explore the role of chemicals in our personal care products, specifically focusing on hair care and hair styling products and the consequences to our health. Participants will learn about the potential reproductive health impacts of commonly used chemicals, such as endocrine disrupting chemicals (hormone mimickers) and the connection to early puberty, menarche and fibroid tumors. In addition, conversations will surround what can be done on a personal, community, and policy level to eliminate toxics from our consumer products.
