The purpose of this study was to access the effects of detoxification of hair by SUKI(silver tools). The subjects of this study participated 26 persons(EG 13 and CG 13), Experimental group was performed SUKI programs combined with scalp and hair for two times per week, during 8 weeks. The results was of comparison of variations in each groups showed that there was a significant difference(6items) in the experimental group(p<.05). But 2items(Pb, Cs) was not showed it. Among the hazardous heavy metals in research, Al, Ba and Hg showed the greatest reduction rate of difference. Thus, the using of the SUKI tool has been shown to affect some heavy metal emissions (p<.05). In conclusion, it is thought that it can be used as basic data for heavy metal discharge of scalp through continuous research in the future.

본 연구는 SUKI를 활용하여 두피의 중금속 감소에 대해 미치는 영향에 대해 알아보았다. 연구대상자는 총 26명이었으며 실험군과 대조군 각각 13명이었다. SUKI 도구를 활용한 두피 중금속 배출에 대한 중재를 8주간 주 2회씩 실시하였고, 결과는 다음과 같다. 총 각각 8 종목의 실험군과 대조군의 비교에서 실험군에서 유의한 차이가 있었다. 실험군의 중금속인 Hg, Pb, Al, Cd, As, Ba, Ur, Cs 중에서 6가지 항목의 Hg, Al, Cd, As, Ba, Ur과 같은 중금속들에서 통계적으로 유의한 감소(p<.05)를 보여주었으며, Pb, Cs 는 유의하지 않았다. 그리고 해당 유해중금속 중에서 Al, Ba, Hg가 가장 큰 차이의 감소율을 나타냈다. 따라서 SUKI 도구의 중재가 일부 중금속 배출에 영향을 줄 수 있다는 것을 시사한다(p<.05). 결론적으로 향후 지속적인 연구를 통해 두피의 중금속 배출을 위한 기초자료로 활용될 수 있을 것으로 사료된다.
