Unfortunately at the risk of being the boring grown up there are many reasons why any professional Hair Salon should say NO to anyone under the age of 16.

WHY YOU MUST SAY ‘NO’ TO UNDER 16’S

 

Children under the age of 16 should never be offered any hair colour or foils service, including initial allergy testing. But why not?

The reason is that all legal colouring products used in the UK are labelled as “not intended for use on persons under the age of 16”.

This does not necessarily mean that they are unsafe to use, according to the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association. But to do so means you will not be following the manufacturer’s guidelines, and therefore will not be covered for insurance if anything does go wrong.

If that were not reason enough, children can often be ore sensitive to the chemicals in colour than adults. If a child has the potential to develop allergies (and this can come back to their individual genetic make-up), exposure at an early age may increase their allergic sensitivity earlier.
