READING the Small Print

The paper inserts tucked in a box of color are really worth reading. At times, I read copy that

addresses "allergy" or "sensitivity" to permanent hair color. We are informed that at times,

persons with temporary or other types of tattoos can develop sensitivity to hair color.

Hmmm... a number of clients DO tattoo their eyebrows, lip line, or eyeliner... and some

( a few, not all), do report feeling discomfort when color is applied to their hair. I share

this as an FYI...... and, perhaps a bit of an answer regarding why

some people are not comfortable while they are in our salons. so, when you can,

read one of the paper carton inserts. I think you'll find that of interest. B
