Hair Extensions

What are hair extensions?
Hair extensions involve the use of synthetic or human hair to thicken existing hairstyles.

What is the procedure involved in having hair extensions?
Hair extensions can be applied by plaiting the extensions into real hair and then they are painted with a bonding agent (glue) which seals the hair in place and the bonding agent is fixed in place with a heated clamp.  Extensions can also be weaved into existing hair by braiding the extensions close to the scalp.

What are the risks of having hair extensions?
If the hairdresser failed to carry out a patch test and you suffered with an allergic reaction after having hair extensions you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Some further specific risks of hair extensions include:

  • Hair breakage (from over exposure to glue/incorrect methods being used)
  • Hair loss and in severe cases bald patches
  • Traction alopecia

If you have suffered with any of the above problems associated with hair extensions, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.  Call us today for free no obligation advice on 0161 762 4949.
