Braids, Weaves & Relaxers Claims

If you have suffered damage to your hair caused by braids, weaves or relaxers and it was not your fault you may be entitled to claim compensation for the damage. We have specialist hair injury solicitors who will deal with your claim from start to finish. We will act for you on a No Win No Fee basis to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for you.

Many women have weaves, braids and use chemical relaxers. Afro-Caribbean hair is dryer than other hair types and therefore more prone to breakage due to its structure. Having braids, weaves and using chemical relaxers carry there own risks, such as:

  • Developing a form of scarring hair loss
  • Bacterial scalp infections
  • Traction alopecia – where the follicle is put under too much strain, which is worsened by the use of chemical relaxers
  • Hair relaxers changing the structure of the hair, leading to breakage
  • Thinning hair

Hair claims can be some of the most distressing types of injury and we understand that this can be a difficult time for you. We make sure that your claim is dealt with in a sensitive manner and if it is easier we can ensure that you speak to a female solicitor.
