Do You Need to Seek Compensation for Damage to Your Hair?

Did you just want to try a new colour? Did you expect to make your roots match the rest of your hair without any problems? Have you had a traumatic event damage your hair because of inattention or failure to test a strand of your hair before a harsh chemical was used? If you have suffered pain and embarrassment due to a recent visit to your hair salon where an unqualified or incompetent hairdresser damaged your hair, you should seek compensation that can help you fix the problem and return to your normal and happy lifestyle. If money is scarce and you don’t know where to turn, perhaps a solicitor that offers you help on a no win, no fee basis can help. Let’s take a look at when and how you need to seek compensation for damage to your hair.

  1. The first step to take is to write down where the salon is, the date and time that you went in for a hair treatment, and the name of the hairdresser who did work on your hair. You should inform the salon of your unhappiness with the result and give them the name of the particular hairdresser so that they can make arrangements to monitor their work with other clients or dismiss them for incompetence. Make notes about how long chemicals were left on your hair, what the hairdresser did whilst they waited, and any negligent behaviour that you noticed during your appointment.
  2. Next, find a good solicitor that has experience working with hair damage claims so that you can discuss your claim with them. Ask how much they will charge, how long it will take for your claim to be paid, and about the amount that they think you can receive for your suffering and pain. Find out the type of information that they need and share with them what you have already compiled for your claim. Ask what else they need and how you can help them make your case go more quickly.

Monitor the symptoms that are occurring with your hair and scalp on a regular basis. You may find bald places where the hair has been so damaged it will take some time to regrow; you can also find an irritated or burned scalp that has blisters and can cause itching and burning that annoys you day and night. This can impact your overall health and well-being and cause emotional trauma that disrupts the quality of your life. Advice offered at suggests that you can include all of these symptoms to support your claim; make sure you share the details of your discomfort with your solicitor.

Once you have begun the healing process you can work closely with a solicitor to calculate the expenses associated with the damage that was done to your hair and scalp. Keep accurate records, organise your documents, and make a commitment to working toward regaining control of your life; it will be an easy process if you partner with the right team of compensation solicitors who have your best interest in mind.
