Allergic contact dermatitis due to permanent waves is quite rare and most reported cases have occurred in hairdressers who were occupationally sensitized. Acid permanent waves containing glyceryl monothioglycolate (GMTG) are responsible for most of these reactions. We report 6 cases of allergic contact dermatitis due to GMTG in permanent waves.
