I agree they're much lower and that's nice. However, the gauge should have tested higher levels than .6 because a better selling point for the machine would be letting the salons know that they are not meeting OSHA standards as well as now we're still unable to gauge what the true levels are without the extractor for the safety of the clients and hairdressers alike.
Oh well. Tiffani should know this so I'll just shoot her an email. I don't have time or $$ to get a BKT right now but the nice thing is, even though I do shampoo just about every day, it's now been over three months and I barely get a wave, no frizz or anything. In fact, some days I think it is TOO flat.. but very soft and silky.
What were the results of the study you did having clients wash with shampoo WITH sodium chloride vs without?
Maybe next study you should find a client like me that believes in washing/conditioning about every day and see how long theirs last as opposed to those who just wash a few times a week : )
Since I live near Chicago, back when I was closer to the city, we had a petroleum plant and whenever you drove down the road, it would rain chemicals on your window ever so lightly. That's always what I feel near the big city that lives on your hair when you don't wash it every day : ) I think it eats away at it.
Maybe in rural communities this is not so but definitely if there are industrial businesses nearby there are pollutants in the air and they get into your skin, hair, lungs, etc. I like to clean and recoat my hair (leave in conditioners and such) about every day. : )
