Allergic reactions to hair colour are more common than you may think. While they rarely appear the first time you colour your hair, sensitisation can develop the second, third or fourth time around, for men and women of any age. Many cases stem from exposure to paraphenylenediamine (PPD), a common colouring ingredient in oxidative hair colour products. While not everyone develops a reaction, it is important to be aware of your sensitivity to such ingredients, and the best way to do this is through allergy patch tests.
Colour Me Safe is a New Zealand owned and operated company, partnered with quality salons to deliver an easy patch testing system to your door. Our goal is to create a safe and convenient way for you to detect an allergy to certain ingredients before it’s too late. This way, we can tailor your hair colour experience to suit you and propose alternatives to standard oxidative hair colour.
This product is currently under development, and more details will be on the way as our prototypes progress. Stay tuned for more information!
