Sponsored blog post: A Visit to the Hairdresser – Riskier than You Think

Hair dyes are used on a regular basis by people of both sexes and all ages, for various cosmetic purposes. These products contain a number of different chemicals that can cause an allergic reaction to hair dye treatment after contact with the skin. For this reason, it is essential that a person receives a skin patch test. This is the only foolproof way of determining any pre-existing allergies. Many hairdressers do not carry out such tests despite the fact that more and more people are suffering from allergic reactions to chemicals contained in colouring products each year.
Another problem that clients of hairdressers face is chemical damage to their hair. Again a test should be performed on clients' hair at least 24 hours before any treatment. Sometimes hairdressers are simply negligent by incorrectly mixing or leaving solutions on the hair for too long. The resulting personal injury is damage to the hair. The injured client could make a hair damage compensation claim against the hairdresser.
