Allergy Alert Testing

Allergy banner

What we want

  • Protection for salon owners against claims for allergic reactions to hair colorants.

What are we doing

  • We have introduced record cards to help stylists judge when alert tests are needed, backed by Coversure Insurance Services, NHF’s preferred insurance provider.
  • Working with manufacturers and other industry bodies in the UK and Europe to find more efficient ways of testing for allergies.
  • Campaigning for restrictions on applying hair colour to under 16s in salons to apply to products sold through retailers.
