What’s the Deal with a Hair Colour Patch Test?

So, what exactly is this patch test thing we keep talking about? Well, it’s basically a tiny test we do to check if your skin and your soon-to-be hair colour are going to get along like old pals. We dab a smidge of dye on a sneaky spot—think behind your ear or on your inner elbow—and give it a day or two to make sure there are no surprise reactions before we dive into the full hair colouring party.

Why We’re All About Patch Testing

  • Navigating Skin Sensitivities: You know, some hair dyes have a sneaky ingredient called paraphenylenediamine (PPD), and for some folks, it can cause a bit of a fuss on their skin. We do this little test to make sure your skin isn’t planning any surprise parties that might cramp your style. We’re all about smooth sailing, not unexpected bumps in the road!
  • Keeping Your Hair Hustle Happy: We totally get it—some people’s skin is just a tad pickier than others’. Patch testing helps us figure out if your skin has any diva moments planned, so we can make sure your hair colouring adventure is all fun and no drama. We want you leaving our salon with a skip in your step and a smile on your face!
  • Promise of Professionalism: Here at Studio74 Hair and Beauty, your happiness and safety are our top priorities. This little patch test is just one way we show our dedication to giving you the best hair colouring experience possible. We’re here to make sure your hair dreams become a reality, without any hiccups along the way.

Making Patch Testing a Breeze

We’ve got the patch test process down to a fine art:

  • Friendly Chat: When you book in for your hair colouring appointment with us, we’ll schedule in a quick patch test at least 48 hours beforehand. Just a little prep work for the main event!
  • Easy Peasy Application: We’ll dab a bit of dye on a cosy spot and leave it to do its thing for a day or two. No fuss, no stress!
  • Chill and Check: You just kick back, relax, and keep an eye on the test area for any unexpected surprises. But hey, we’ve got your back every step of the way!

Recognising Signs of a Hair Colour High-Five

We’re all about celebrating the good stuff, but sometimes it’s good to know what to look out for:

  • Feelin’ Fine: Mild irritation might show up as a little redness or itchiness where we did the test. It’s just your skin giving us a friendly wave, letting us know it’s all good.
  • Allergic High-Five: If your skin feels like it’s throwing a party with symptoms like swelling or itchiness, don’t sweat it! We’re here to help you figure out the next steps and make sure your hair colouring plans stay on track.

Additionally, for more information about hair dye reactions, you can visit the NHS UK website.
