Our Allergy Alert Consultation and Colour Record Card overrides MI other than when requirement for a skin test (all clients will need to be tested to trigger the protocol) is required (consultation card must be completed subject to Q&A and recorded for every colour service). Skin test to be prepared and applied per the Colour House instructions; colour houses differ with application.
The Patch Test Kit can be used to trigger our Allergy Alert Consultation and Colour Record Card otherwise YOU will default to the Manufacturers Instructions for test and colour services.

Electronic versions of our Card are acceptable on the basis that the Q&A mirror exactly, strict compliance with the Card/ Guidelines thus questions must be asked, recorded and documented for each and every colour service.
