HOW WEAVES SEVERELY DAMAGED MY HAIR
Cheap Hair Extensions Left a Hole in This Woman's Head
According to , Tina Campbell, a London-based writer, paid 100 pounds (9) for a weave and everything seemed great. Well, that is until her head started itchy and lumps appeared on her scalp.
However, Miss Campbell said that a few weeks after having them put in, her scalp started to itch unbearably and she started to notice small lumps forming.
"Concerned, I took them out, but the lumps — one on top of my head and a cluster lower down towards my neck — seemed to grow and harden," she said.
"The doctor said they were boils, which I'd never had before, and said to bathe them."
But the damage was already done.
On the night before her 29th birthday, the boils on her hear burst and started oozing puss. She was taken to the hospital where the infection had to be removed surgically. "Despite having had nine needles injected into my head to try and numb the area, I could still feel it and the sound of scalpel on bone was like something from a horror movie," she said.
The most insane part? She's already gotten more extensions! But, then again, the doctor said the infection was probably caused by a dirty needle used when putting in her extensions (yikes!), so she'll probably be OK if she goes to another shop. And also, um, maybe the place who gave her the life-threatening infection should be shut down? Just a thought!
