Do I have the right of knowing what products my hairstylist is putting on my head?

Do I have the right to know what products my hairstylist is putting on my head? I called before I went and ask them if they used a certain product. When my stylist was putting her die solution on my head she said they do not tell people because they are highly trained, end it is kind of a secret and it was written in their store policy. I said I would like to see it. Then the manager told me that it was an oral policy not to tell the customer because it is their business. It sounded like gobbledygook. I feel that I have the right to know what is being put on my head, my body I feel that I am paying for this and if I am traveling and or want to do my hair. I should know the formula, and not have a guessing game, every time. Of course these are not all of the details but I would really appreciate the answer to this.

No, you do not have a legal right to this information: the law does not mandate its release. You of course do have the right to not go back to or use this stylist if they won't provide you the information you seek, and to only patronize a stylist who will.
