HAIR COLOR SAFETY

Every hair color manufacturer selling products in the United States is responsible for

providing proof of complete product ingredient safety- testing BEFORE the product

is available to salons and to consumers alike. The ingredients and literature are

peer-approved by a panel of safety experts prior to launch.


Patch tests are required prior to every color appointment.. testing for irritation and allergy.

I know of no salon that requires this.. for practical reasons. When a client tells you that

he/she itches, burns, or feels irritation when color is applied to the scalp, that client should

be escorted to the sink immediately, rinsed with tepid water, shampooed, and thoroughly rinsed again. Apply a conditioner only to the hair's mid-lengths and ends. Then, rinse

again.. very thoroughly.


This week I learned from a chemist that MANY "allergic reactions' spring precisely from a reaction to the dyes used in a shade of color.


Please feel free to share your thoughts here. I look forward to seeing you in Palm Beach,

Florida on Sunday, January 15th, 2023.
