Help and support on allergy alert testing

What we want

  • Protection for salon owners against claims for allergic reactions to colorants used in hair and beauty.

What have we achieved?

  • Introduced NHF record cards to help stylists judge when allergy tests are needed, backed by Coversure Insurance Services, NHF’s preferred insurance provider.
  • Worked with salon software systems to include allergy test records.

Allergy alert: In 2016 over 1000 packs of Allergy Alert Cards were ordered by NHF members

What are we doing?

  • Working with manufacturers and other industry bodies in the UK and Europe to discover more efficient ways of testing for allergies.
