Don't Skip the #SkinTest

Although rare, allergic reactions to chemicals in hair dye can happen. We have seen evidence that people are developing new allergies in recent years, so even if you have been dying your hair for years you could still be affected. While some minor reactions just cause irritation, more severe allergic responses can lead to swelling, inflammation and anaphylaxis. In some extreme cases, people have even lost their lives as a result.

The Barrie Stephen Hair Group of Leicester and Leicestershire is committed to putting the safety of our clients first. The danger from hair dye can be completely eliminated by first trialling the product on the skin, 48 hours before the treatment takes place.This is why we have a #ColourResponsible Policy and will not perform a colour service if we have any doubts about the result of your skin test. We want to challenge the whole industry to take the Colour Responsible Pledge. Every salon in the country should put the peace of mind of their clients first. While the risk of an allergic reaction is small, we want to completely eradicate the threat.

We call on everyone to sign this petition to encourage your local salon to put your health first and publicly commit to Colour Responsible working.
