Woman Left Distraught As Hair 'Falls Out In Clumps' After Botched Bleach Job

A woman has claimed she spotted her mobile hairdresser flushing clumps of her hair down the toilet after it fell out while she was getting it bleached.

Shannon Wardlaw, 23, from Edinburgh, was left in tears when her hair started falling out during the appointment. Shannon said the hairdresser 'assured her it was normal' before flushing her locks down the toilet.

“I was looking for a mobile hairdresser. She came to my house with her kids which I didn’t mind as I have a nice heart and she took out two nine per cent bottles of bleach," said Shannon.

“She put it on my hair and saw it was orange so wiped another bleach on my hair and my hair started falling out in the bath.

“I asked her if this was normal and she said yes and carried on putting hair dye on my hair."

“Before she left she flushed all my hair down the toilet. had to run to my mum's late at night in a taxi, my mum's not a hairdresser but she had to try and save my hair," she continued.

“She cut six inches off my hair. It has now affected my mental health and anxiety as my hair is so short.”

"Before she went near my hair I was using Olaplex, I had nice healthy hair. My hair was black and red before this and my goal was to be black and blue," added Shannon, who shared her ordeal on Facebook.

On seeing the post, one person commented: “That is actually disgusting! I am so sorry this has happened to you.
