Beauty Salon Injuries in Washington, DC
Getting injured at a beauty salon in Washington, DC may sound odd, but know that injuries at salons happen all across the country. The most common beauty salon injuries include:
Chemical Burns: Because chemicals are used at beauty salons for perms, relaxers, highlights and hair coloring, beauty salon clients are at risk of getting skin irritations because of those chemicals. When improperly mixed, applied incorrectly
Heat Burns: Curling irons, flat irons, and hair dryers are all heat producing salon tools, some of which can heat beyond 450 degrees. When an item at this high temperature comes into contact with skin, the pain can be excruciating. It can blister almost immediately, and the client is then at an immediate risk for other infections.
Cuts/Scrapes: Scissors and razors are a part of the hair salon experience. Patrons needing a quick trim of the ends or a little “cleaning up” around the edges is the norm. However, what isn’t the norm is getting an injury during that process. A cut can be very painful, and much like an open wound from a burn, that cut could quickly develop into an infection.
Hair Loss: Many hair salon clients have lost handfuls of hair because of treatments or products that were applied to their hair by a hairdresser. Their hair/skin does not react well to the product, and hair loss is the result.
