FAQ: How do I do a Sensitivity Test?
« on: 30 Nov 09 / 09:27 PM »
This can vary depending on the brand and type of dye you are using, but unless the packaging says otherwise a general guide to sensitivity tests for semi-permanent dyes would be:

  • Thoroughly clean a small area or bare skin (normally the inside forearm)
  • Apply a small amount of the semi permanent hair dye to the area.
  • Cover with a sticking plaster and leave for approx 48 hours
  • Check the results after 48 hours or sooner if you experience any discomfort
  • If there is no reaction then it should be fine to use the product although reactions could still occur

NOTE: Although an allergic reaction is very rare if you experience severe pain, nausea, headaches etc rinse off dye immediately and consult a Doctor.  Semi-permanent dyes are unlikely to cause a reaction but caution should always be taken with any cosmetic item as allergic reactions can occur even with items used previously.
