A few years ago, a local celebrity went viral after she experienced a salon misfortune that ruined her gorgeous locks. Reports say her hair treatment caused her hair to fall out, forcing her to wear wigs and caps to hide the damage. This incident left a huge impact on the celebrity who also happened to be a shampoo endorser.
Salons are expected to protect your hair and provide safe hair treatments. Although some treatments do damage your hair, especially those that use harsh chemicals (bleaching, rebonding, and perm, among others), accidents happen that lead to results you don’t expect.
What can you do when your hairstylist accidentally caused severe damage to your hair?
Should You File a Complaint Against the Salon?
Stylists normally discuss the process and the expected results of a hair treatment before the session starts. It’s also reasonable to communicate your concerns to your stylist during the consultation, especially if something is unclear to you.
In case the result isn’t what you expected or was agreed upon, it’s best to bring it up with your stylist immediately. Speak calmly and refrain from questioning the skills of the stylist. Instead, use the expectation you and the stylist previously discussed as the basis of your complaint.
Consult your legal counsel when you decide to file a formal complaint against the salon or the stylist. The salon will likely offer to fix the problem or give you a refund.
Fixing Salon-Damaged Hair
Going home from a salon with damaged hair is frustrating. Your stylist can give recommendations on how you can fix the problem. But several products also help improve the state of your hair and make it healthy again.
If you suffered from hair loss, moringa-based products contribute to promoting healthy hair growth. This ingredient is packed with nutrients and antioxidants responsible for moisturizing the scalp and making the hair stronger.
Several hair care products that contain moringa are available in drugstores, from shampoo and conditioners to oils and serums. Oil is an ideal choice to reintroduce moisture to your hair. Apply it to your tresses regularly after showering for best results.
You can also get a new haircut to remove the damaged parts of your hair. It reduces the split ends that do further damage. Consult your stylist about what will work with your situation.
Choosing a Reliable Salon
Almost wherever you go in Manila, you’ll see a hair salon, making it hard to choose the one that can give you the look you want. The price of services varies, as well. But expect to pay more if you want better results. Higher rates, however, don’t always mean quality results.
Check the reviews of previous clients to see their experience with the salon. If most of the reviews are positive, it may be a reliable salon. Look at the services they offer, so you know they are capable of giving you the look you want.
Trusting your hairstylist is important when getting a hair treatment. But your stylist is also human who commits mistakes. In such a case, discuss the matter right away to determine an appropriate solution. And practice proper hair care to protect your tresses from any styling damage.
