Compensation for the loss of hair after an adverse reaction

Although looks aren’t everything, our presentation and the way that we look and feel about ourselves plays a big role in self-confidence and self-esteem across the board and a major part of this is our hair. Whether it’s short or long, a good mane of hair gives us the encouragement to face the day – and can even give us something to hide behind in times of trouble – as a result having good hair is something that many of us strive for.

If you have suffered from an adverse reaction to a hair product or treatment that you have had on your hair, then you may look to make a compensation claim to recoup any damages that you have sustained as a result.

WHO MIGHT HAVE CAUSED THIS TYPE OF REACTION?

There are many different situations which can lead to the loss of hair, but generally this will involve problems associated with hair treatments and products. One of the most common products that your hair can have an adverse reaction to is a hair colourant and this is mainly due to the chemicals which are often associated with this type of treatment. Acids within these products can cause damage to your hair which can lead to discolouration or in the worst case, your hair falling out.

IF I’M INJURED WHERE COULD I CONSIDER MAKING A CLAIM?

There are a number of different situations where you might look to make a compensation claim if you feel that you have been the victim of negligent hair treatment. Examples of this include:

  • Claims for an error made by a hairdresser
  • Claims for negligence during a hair colour treatment
  • Claims for negligence during a basic hair treatment
  • Claims for errors made during a hair cut
  • Claims for the faulty manufacturing of a hair product
