A Wisconsin woman was forced to shave her hair off after using a conditioner from a popular brand which she claims was mixed with hair removal cream.
In case you needed any more reasons to never shop at Walmart, here's a little something. A woman was forced to shave her head after using a conditioner she bought from Walmart as it was mixed with Nair, a hair removal product. Instead of making her hair smoother, the conditioner allegedly removed clumps of her hair and left her scalp itchy and red, as reported by The New York Post.
Ashley Rose from Wisconsin has urged people to be seriously careful when they buy stuff from Walmart as the event has totally traumatized her. "As I type this I’m crying bc that’s all I have done since this incident. This is raw and has hit me like no other. My hair was finally the way I loved it to be and now it’s gone. These photos I’m sharing are personal to me but apparently needs to get out there, most of these were from last night, through the night and morning on hair had fallen out and still was falling out in clumps before I shaved it. The pictures do not do it justice or show the 100% damage it has caused me," Ashley wrote in a public post on Facebook.
"My heart hurts terribly I don’t even have any words to say to anyone as I just can’t get anything out but that it hurts and has been scary. My only intentions for sharing is to prevent it from happening to anyone else. Check your bottles where ever you get them, nothing can be trusted anymore...Please do not bash me..tomorrow I go back to work and I’m very anxious, my emotions [have] never been so high," she added.
Her mother previously announced what had happened in a Facebook post as well when Ashley wasn't in the mindset to do so. "Attention New Richmond Wisconsin Walmart shoppers be aware of shampoo and conditioner you buy there as my daughter Ashley Rose bought some 2 days ago and someone mixed nair in her conditioner bottle!!!! As I speak she is losing hair and crying!! Conditioner below this conditioner is supposed to be white is is a ugly pink color. Please note this is NOT FAkE! The police are gonna be watching camera footage along with the detectives," Taffy wrote and her post has now gone viral.
"Ashley went to get a consultation for extensions her hair is so brittle and still falling out they can’t do anything. Ashley’s uncle shaved her head Monday night. This momma is full of emotions rite now. Ugh! Ashley is doing great! She just has to get use to all of this. I seen her yesterday and this girl is beautiful! We haven’t heard from the police or anyone else yet," she updated.
Walmart is yet to comment on the incident but Pantene has issued a statement - 'The consumer involved hasn’t directly contacted us yet, so at this time we have limited information. We have reached out to gain more information because the safety of our products is our top priority. We will share more information as we learn more about this unusual experience.' A GoFundMe page has been set up for Ashley to help her with legal fees and medical costs. You can donate here.
