Hair productsHair products, such as dyes, bleaches, and straighteners, are extremely popular among all ages. Whether trying to cover up a patch of gray hair or just wanting to be more fashionable, every year, millions of Americans color their hair. Many dyes are marketed for both the scalp and facial hair. Depending on the product and location of the hair, dyes are brushed, lathered, or massaged in. However, sometimes manufacturers of hair dyes fail to inform unsuspecting consumers about the hazardous chemicals, like calcium hydroxide, sodium perborate, lye, and formaldehyde, commonly found in their products.

Consequently, irritation, inflammation, and redness commonly appear after the application of many hair care products. Although these symptoms tend to fade within a couple of hours or days, some victims are not as lucky. For example, a 62-year-old man permanently scarred his face after using Just for Men to dye his beard. The man’s lawyer believes that his client’s injuries were caused by p-Phenylenediamine (PPD). The chemicals found in many hair dyes have been associated with severe allergic reactions, including burns, vitiligo, necrosis, and even death. In addition to being extremely painful, complications caused by dangerous hair products can cause life-altering disfigurements that lead to devastating emotional effects, such as reduced self-worth, social anxiety, and despair.

Many burns and other injuries that are caused by dangerous hair dyes could have easily been prevented if manufacturers designed safer products and warned consumers about the risks. Irresponsible manufacturers frequently produce deficient and hazardous products at the expense of consumers.

Common Injuries Suffered By Victims Of Defective Hair Dyes

Common Injuries Suffered By Victims Of Defective Hair DyesWhen applied frequently or kept on too long, the toxic substances in hair products can penetrate deep into the skin’s underlying layers. The risks of suffering an allergic reaction, burns, or other severe side effects after using hair dye are incredibly unpredictable. Some victims exhibit adverse reactions after just one application, while others may use a product for years before suddenly suffering severe side effects. Some adverse effects of hair dye include:

  1. Eye and facial swelling and irritation;
  2. Severe blistering of the ears, scalp, or eyelids;
  3. Permanent baldness and cicatricial alopecia;
  4. Dermal fibrosis;
  5. Chemical burns to the face and scalp;
  6. Sores or lesions throughout the damaged area;
  7. Infection;
  8. Anaphylaxis,
  9. Severe pain;
  10. Numbness or tingling around the burn;
  11. Migraines caused by the trauma;
  12. Permanent scar tissue on the victim’s head and face;
  13. Devastating disfigurement;
  14. Crushing self-confidence issues and embarrassment; and
  15. Misery, hopelessness, and depression due to baldness and severe disfigurement.

The negative consequences of applying a dangerous hair dye can spread to other areas, such as the victim’s arms, chest, and neck. In critical cases, exposure to these chemicals can lead to deadly reactions and require emergency hospitalization.



Proving Your Injuries Were Caused By An Unsafe Hair Product

Every day, dangerous products are marketed and sold by corporations that are more worried about profits than public safety. Consequently, innocent victims are severely injured and even die from using products that were believed to be safe. Product liability law is intended to hold manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of hazardous products legally responsible for the resulting injuries. Designers and manufacturers of hair dyes have a legal duty to ensure that their products do not cause harm when used as intended. Generally, dangerous hair products that cause injury will have one of the following defects:

  1. Design Defects: Design defects tend to arise when formulating a new product. In most cases, the ingredients or formula causes the hair product to be excessively dangerous.
  2. Manufacturing Defects: Even if the hair dye was properly formulated, some products might still be poorly mixed, causing them to be unsafe. Often these products fail to meet the chemist’s specifications after production.
  3. Defective Warnings or Instructions: Both manufacturers and distributors must warn potential users of any risks and provide adequate instructions regarding proper use. When marketing and promoting their products, distributors often show unsafe applications of hair dyes.

Product liability lawsuits involving hair products typically require in-depth research, expert witnesses, and detailed analysis to prove. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s highly experienced product liability lawyers promise to act quickly to increase your chances of obtaining the maximum compensation for your damages.
