Before your salon colour appointment, you need to have an up-to-date Patch Test. If you are a new client or an existing client who has not had colour in 6 months, or if you feel you have become sensitised to anything either through illness or from taking any medication, you must take an Allergy Alert Test or have a Patch Test before your next colour appointment.
YOU CAN DO THIS IN SALON AT LEAST 48 HOURS BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT OR AT HOME AT LEAST 5 DAYS BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT.
The At Home Colourstart 5 Day Allergy Alert Test is a ready-to-use Allergy Alert Patch Test available to purchase online, that can show if you may be allergic to PPD, one of the most common ingredients present in hair colourants. The Test Patch must stay on your arm for 48 hours and be done at least 5 days before your colour appointment. The test result must be recorded on your Colourstart Passport online on Day 5 and shared with LIMOZ LOGLI.
A test showing it is safe to apply colour will be valid for 120 days. Please allow a minimum of 2 working days for delivery, and review consultation questions before you buy.
