Hair Colour Patch Test

GREAT hairdressing Hair Colour Care Policy

hair colour safety at great hairdressing salonsWe are delighted to introduce you to Sens.us, a great new hair colour which is derived from natural ingredients sourced in Tuscany, Italy.

Because Sens.us is free from ammonia and PPD (a chemical substance used in many permanent hair dyes), you are less likely to have an allergic reaction or any skin sensitivity issues.  

The experts at GREAT hairdressing have been colouring hair professionally for over 20 years and we are always striving to be at the top or our game.

We must stress, therefore, how important it is to have a skin test 48 hours before your next colour appointment with us.  If this is not possible, we can send you out a Colour Start Self Test Kit to do at home.

WE CANNOT COLOUR YOUR HAIR IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN PATCH TESTED WITH SENS.US HAIR COLOUR.

A patch test takes 30 seconds to complete so simply pop into the salon when you’re passing.  Professional salons will NOT colour your hair without you first being patch tested.

Applying a Patch Test at Home

If you would like to apply a patch test at home please call us so we can arrange to send you the Colour Start Self Test Kit.

It is very easy to do the patch test at home.  Simply press the patch with the logo face-down onto clean, healthy, grease-free skin

 Press firmly to the inner arm with the logo face-down on clean, healthy, grease free skin.  Thoroughly wet the backing card with a sponge or water spray and leave until it easily slides away from the Colour Start logo.  Pat dry and leave the test on your skin. The test will be removed in the salon at your appointment.

If you get a reaction around the patch tested area do not worry.  Simply remove the patch test with sticky tape and call the salon as soon as possible for expert advice.
