PATCH TESTING

Patch testing for all lifting and tinting products must be done 48 hours before treatment. The client must sign a consultation and the test must be documented.

  • Use a cotton bud to apply the lifting products behind one ear of the client (lifting and neutralising solutions)
  • Use a cotton bud to apply the tinting products behind the other ear.

If the client is allergic to one or the other of the products you will know which one.
