The patented MixEz sachet is a self-contained way of holding premeasured colourant and developer separately, which can then be easily mixed within the sachet after the inner seal is broken ensuring that there is minimum mess and no unnecessary oxidisation of the product. The product formulation is by the same manufacturer that is used on the client, ensuring a comprehensive and accurate skin sensitivity test in an affordable way which can be easily used by salons and clients.
The easiest way of using the sachet is by rolling it up from the bottom and then squish the contents up.

How to do a Patch Test using L’Oreal Excellence from USA
For this skin allergy patch test, I used a box dye which was purchase in the US. The biggest difference is that the patch test in the instructions is a 2 part. The colour which I had was 4G Dark Golden Brown (Warmer).
A small disclaimer – The photos used are of my arm. At the time I was taking some prescribed medication for migraines, hayfever nasal spray and over the counter antihistamines. I do get eczema, I have no tattoos, I have never smoked and I have never had any henna tattoos.
The test took no longer than 5 minutes to do and this includes mixing up the colourant and developer together, looking for more cotton buds and replacing the battery in my camera.
Amy Caddick wanted to recreate the hair style of Kim Kardashian with dark brown at the roots and lighter tips. She went to a local salon but unfortunately, in the article it states she says the salon didn’t do a patch test and she had a severe allergic reaction where her head swelled.
This is carrying on from the Garnier Olia skin allergy patch test but it is a hair strand test using Garnier Olia to see what my dark brown hair would look like if I were to dye it with Deep Violet 3.16. The smell of it is very floral and pleasant. It contains no ammonia and it uses toulene 2,5 diamine.
A slightly different patch test – I used a different, vibrant colour and also did a hair strand test.
The instructions do say to just do a one part skin allergy patch test with the colourant. I would rather use the product as it would be on my head.
The product I chose was Olia by Garnier in Deep Violet 3.16. It contains no ammonia and it uses toulene 2,5 diamine. It has similar properties to PPD and can cause an allergic reaction.
I had seen on twitter several people had mentioned they were disappointed it hadn’t turned their hair a blue based violet tone as they expected.
A small disclaimer – The photos used are of my arm. At the time I was taking some prescribed medication for migraines, hayfever nasal spray and over the counter antihistamines Zirtek. I do get eczema, I have no tattoos, I have never smoked and I have never had any henna tattoos.
This took no longer than 5 minutes to do and it was warm : 20 degrees Celsius. Continue reading →
