No one wants to suffer from hair damage. You enter a salon and pay for the services of a hairdresser because you want to look better. If you leave the place looking worse than before, you can consider hair damage claims and be paid for the damage that has taken place.
There is no guarantee that you will immediately get the amount that you are asking for especially if the other party challenges your claim. Any legal battle could be really tough. Here are some of the things you need to avoid after suffering such a problem.
Fighting with the hairdresser
As soon as you realise the problem, you will feel mixed emotions. You will be sad because you did not achieve the look that you desired. You will be angry because you feel betrayed. You might also be in physical pain especially if both the hair and scalp were badly affected. Despite what you feel, try to remain calm and compose yourself. Record everything that takes place after you realise there is a problem. Control your emotions and step out when you are ready to leave.
Fighting with the hairdresser won’t accomplish anything. It is not as if you can get your old hair back or have the problem treated right away. Just leave and deal with the situation later.
Go back home to dwell on the pain
You might panic after what happened and won’t know what to do. Right after leaving the salon, see a doctor and have the problem checked. Your hair along with the scalp might have been badly damaged. It is in your best interest to let the doctor check the affected area and prescribe medication if necessary. Aside from recovery, your goal is to get a medical certificate detailing what happened to you. It is best to have it done as soon as possible so you won’t be questioned later on why you did not seek medical assistance right away.
Let the problem go
You might think that this is just a simple issue. You are willing to forgive your hairdresser because you think this was unintentional. Regardless of the intention, you were badly hurt. The path towards recovery costs a lot. You might not even get back to work because you feel too embarrassed about your looks. Maybe you can’t even bear the pain, so you just have to stay home for a while. Worse, you could get fired from your job because you no longer look presentable.
Given these reasons, you just can’t let it go. You need to be compensated and legal experts will help you out. They will make sure that you get what you deserve. They will fight for you even if the other party challenges the claims you have made.
