Colourstart Patch Test


Please read before purchasing

Your Safety is our Priority.

New tighter legislation in health and safety makes it compulsory for us to further minimise your potential risk to an allergic reaction to hair colour ( 1.5% of people are allergic to PPD, one of the chemicals found in most hair colours) but with insufficient data, the potential for increased sensitivity following the national Covid 19 vaccination programme means that you may have a heightend risk to an allergic reaction.

Combers Can Now Offer You Two Choices

1.You can call and arrange a 5 minute appointment to come into the salon and receive a free AAT test (allergy alert test) ideally 10 days before each colour appointment but at least 48 hours


2. You can take control, ensuring your own safety by purchasing and applying a simple one off test yourself, thus negating the need to come into the salon 48 hours before every colour appointment, unless your health profile changes.

You Must Register Before Purchasing

If choosing option 2 it is IMPORTANT… BEFORE PURCHASING to  Click here to register /sign in for your ColourStart passport and answer the qualifying questions, as not everyone is suitable to use Colourstart.

Why do I have to pay for my new Colourstart passport

The Colourstart Passport has been classed as a medicine by the Medicines and Healthcare Products regulatory agency and by law medicines have to be charged for.   
We as a salon have to purchase these to send out to you. We do not get them for free. All Colourstart skin tests cost the same in any salon you go to. Please do remember that this is a one off payment. In the future you do not need a new test. You simply need to go to your app before each future colour appointment and follow the screening questions each time to get your check on your passport, which gives your Combers hair professional the greenlight to proceed with your colour application appointment.
