Introducing the Colourstart Passport

By carefully answering a simple set of questions, Colourstart Passport can help you decide if Colourstart is suitable for you to use. Your answers may also help you make an informed decision on whether you should avoid hair colour.  Colourstart Passport stores the answers to your questions and also any pictures you have taken of your test result.

This can be helpful to share with your hairdresser for future reference to avoid potentially unnecessary re-testing.  Colourstart Passport can be shared with any participating hair professional such as be…salon.

What will Colourstart Passport tell me?

Once you have completed the questions in Colourstart Passport you will get one of three answers:

01 Go ahead! You can colour your hair now, without needing to use Colourstart.

02 Hang on! Colourstart is suitable to use before colouring your hair.

03 Think again! You may not be suitable for Colourstart or hair colour. If you are unsure about what to do, you may wish to consult a pharmacist or doctor.


We at be…salon can help you set the Colourstart Passport up on your mobile you can do this via the website or their App (from Google Play Store or Apple App Store) and help you apply the test patch etc.

Then after the initial testing each time you have your hair coloured you’ll need to complete the questionnaire again to check your circumstances haven’t changed and if they haven’t, no need for a skin test! 

Therefore there will be no need to re-visit the salon 28 hour prior to your colour for an Allergy Alert Test (AAT) or as it's also know the colour blob test (behind your ear) and you will not have to pay the additional cost of £5 for every colour test.

There is a charge of £15 for each Colourstart Test Patch used, but one of these can last you up to 2 years!

Just speak to your stylist the next time you visit the salon for their help.
