How To....Do A Sensitivity Test

Although rare some people can have allergic reactions to products - even something they have used before.
It is always advisable to do a skin sensitivity test before using any cosmetic product to check against adverse reactions.
Please always follow skin test instructions on any product you buy.


A rough guide to doing a semi-permanent hair dye (such as Special Effects) sensitivity test would be:

Clean a small area (inside the arm tends to be the most common area used) then apply a small amount of the Semi-Permanent hair dye to the area.

Cover with a sticking plaster and leave for approx 48 hours

Although an allergic reaction is very rare, if you experience severe pain, nausea, headaches etc rinse of dye immediately and consult a doctor.

If there is no reaction after the 48 hours it should be fine to use the product, but bear in mind that a reaction could still happen although this is rare.

NOTE - Adverse reactions include redness, raised skin, itching, blisters etc, and in more severe cases nausea, headache etc - if any unusual symptoms occur discontinue use of the product and consult a Doctor.
