  • Claiming Compensation For Damage Caused By Hair Perm
  • Lack Of Regulation Causes Hair Perm Accidents At Salons
  • The Importance Of Hair Strand & Skin Patch Tests
  • Over-Processing & Hair Loss From Perm At Hair Salon
Soft curls and permanent waves, commonly known as perms, are one of the most popular procedures performed in hair salons today. Perms may be used to create a completely new hairstyle, or in advance of a special occasion to achieve optimum presentation. A perm can straighten hair, add curls, or add volume. A variety of enhancing effects can therefore be achieved. Like many other hair and beauty treatments that have become popular since the late 1980's, professional perms make life easier for women who want to look their best and make an impression.
Two problems in particular relate to perms that cause accidents and injuries. Firstly hairdressing is effectively unregulated in the UK, with no professional code of practice, meaning anyone can set themselves up and offer hairdressing services regardless of their qualifications. Secondly perming itself is a chemical procedure that fundamentally changes the texture and shape of hair follicles. Where strong chemicals are applied to sensitive hair and areas of skin, it is inevitable that mistakes, accidents and injuries will occur.
Perm accidents at hairdressers happen for a wide variety of reasons. Ideally a hairdresser should perform a hair strand and skin patch test on a client before beginning a perm. This will determine how both hair and skin will react to the chemicals when applied. Clients with particularly sensitive skin or hair may suffer an adverse reaction to the solutions used for perming. Damage to the skin may also result from barrier creams not having been applied properly, or when existing abrasions on the scalp come into contact with chemicals.
Another common perming accident is where the solution is left in the hair for too long, or is too strong in the first place, resulting in 'over-processed' hair. In extreme cases over-processed hair may begin to fall out while the perming rods are being removed, or later while combing the hair at home. The scalp may also be itchy causing a person to scratch and dislodge clumps of hair. In more normal cases the hair will be dry, brittle and frizzy, or the client will be left with the opposite look to that which they intended. Therefore, if a hairdresser has over-processed your perm or if the hairdresser has over-processed your hair you should seek legal advice.

Compensation claims for perm accidents will take into account the emotional repercussions of the damage caused to hair. This could include general loss of self confidence, or the cancellation of scheduled plans such as holidays and weddings. Contact our specialist female solicitors today if you have been injured while having your hair permed at a salon.
