Millions of women and men throughout the country dye their hair. There are a variety of reasons for doing this. From vanity or for a change through to covering up greying hair, people up and down the country get their rich tone from a bottle. There are so many people in fact that few can even recall their natural colour. Should something go wrong with your hair dye, causing you an injury through no fault of your own, you may wish to seek no win no fee* help in Surrey.

When it comes to dyeing their hair, people have two options. They can either use a colour they bought from a shop and apply it themselves or they can visit a salon.

Curl up and Dye
When you visit a hair salon to have a colour put into your hair, the salon manager and their staff have a responsibility to you as a customer and a member of the public. This responsibility is a legal obligation and is commonly known as a duty of care.
As well as ensuring that you are safe as long as you remain in the salon environment, the owners and their staff must ensure you are safe with any products they use which could affect you in the long term.
Should they fail in this regard, you would have the right to make a claim for compensation which you could do by contacting solicitors for ‘no win, no fee* help’ in Surrey.
In order to colour hair, either permanently or semi-permanently, harsh chemicals must be applied to the hair. It is these which will determine the colour, depth and length of time the colour will last. Not everyone reacts well to these chemicals and there have been instances of severe allergic reactions to them. In some cases, these allergic reactions have caused long term pain and even permanent disfigurement.
In order to combat this, the vast majority of hair salons offer an allergy test which must be undertaken 48 hours before they will colour a client’s hair. The test involves smearing a minute amount of dye onto a client’s skin behind the ear. If the skin reacts to the dye, they will refuse to perform the colouring.
Should they fail to perform a test and you have a reaction, you would have the right to contact no win no fee* solicitors who could seek compensation on your behalf.
Compensation may be sought through ‘no win, no fee*’ help in Surrey via expert solicitors if it can be proven that your injuries were the result of someone else’s action, lack of action or negligence.
