Get a disease with a hairstyle for free!

Different diseases including hepatitis are spreading due to use of unsterilised equipment by barbers in various areas of the twin cities.

Many shops, especially roadside barbers are using unsterilised instruments and sub-standard shaving and after shave creams, Pakistan Today has learnt.

Mostly the poor and the lower middle class visit roadside barbers without knowing the potential health risk they cause. Barbers can be found sitting along footpaths in Sectors F-6, G-6, G-7, G-9, I-8, I-9, and I-10 in Islamabad, Faizabad and Pir Wadhai in Rawalpindi, risking people’s health using unclean equipment.

Barbers use dirty scissors, clippers, razors and brushes for cutting, shaving and trimming hair without replacing the old with new ones. Muhammad Kaleem, a resident of G-7/1 said, “I have contracted hepatitis due to use of unclean instruments. The tools and towels are not sterilized before using it on another customer leading to spreading of such diseases.” He said that such practices can be fatal and should be checked by the concerned authorities.

However, hairdresser Mustafa Ibrahim said, “We cannot afford to buy separate towels or tools for every single customer but change razor blades after every use.”

    This is just pathetic and mostly due to lack of proper awareness and education. Studies have proven before about a lot of contagious diseases like aids have spread through such ways. The government should take such things seriously and do something immediately.dish network channel list

    I like hair styling with the help of attractively designed synthetic wigs, and most of them are natural looking, so it becomes hard for my friends to guess whether I am wearing a wig.
