Rated Excellent on Trustpilot by people like you

Hairdressing accidents occur for a number of reasons. Quite often when a product is left on the hair too long or the product is mixed incorrectly.

When someone attends a hairdresser they may already have a color on their hair. The hairdresser should carry out a patch test 48 hours prior to the application of the product to make sure that the product they intend to use is suitable for you. If this is not carried out, you may suffer with an allergic reaction and scalp irritation.

In some cases, the  product used may not be suitable for your hair causing chemically damaged hair.  It is the responsibility of the hairdresser to decide whether a product is suitable, even if you requested it.

Clients describe their hair as feeling like chewing gum, being unable to get a comb/brush through their hair and unable to manage it at all.  This is extremely distressing and upsetting as unfortunately chemically damaged hair does not repair itself, it has to be grown out.
