In a recent press article it was reported that a woman suffered distressing injuries from a bleached hair gone wrong disaster. As a result, she has been awarded £12,500 in compensation.
The hair bleach accident occurred as a result of the bleach being left on the woman’s head for too long. She claims she was left for 45 minutes without a hairdresser checking in. This was much longer than the 25 minutes she was used to.
Bleached hair gone wrong injuries
The woman suffered various injuries as a result of the hair bleach disaster, including:
- Hair breakage
- Hair loss, resulting in bald patches
- Scalp burns
- Sores on head
- Mental health issues, including depression, anxiety and PTSD. These were particularly disruptive to her daily life as she struggled to go out and socialise.
