Patch Test

A patch test and strand test is essential before beginning a hair color or lightening process. MANIC PANIC® Hair Color is PPD FREE but some people do develop allergies to different color dyes throughout their lives. For that reason you should always perform a patch test!
  • Select a small test area, about the size of a quarter, behind the ear or in the inner fold of the elbow. 
  • Wash the test area gently with mild soap and water. Dab dry with a clean towel. 
  • Cover the clean test area with a thin coat of the specific shade of Manic Panic Hair Color desired. 
  • Allow the test area to dry. Leave it uncovered and undisturbed for 24 hours. 
  • Examine the test area carefully. If there are any signs of irritation, then under no circumstances should the product be used. 
  • Should you have any further concerns, please consult a licensed dermatologist. 
  • If the patch test goes well, move on to the strand test!
