3 people suffer hair damage after using cheap DIY hair treatments

Three individuals suffered hair damage after they underwent a cheap hair treatment in a salon or had a do-it-yourself bleaching session for their hair.

Among them was 24-year-old Brenda Pulongbarit who paid P1,500 for hair rebonding with hair color.

Pulongbarit, in an interview with GMA’s Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho show, said she wanted to have her frizzy hair fixed.

She went to a salon and had the first treatment which lasted for 13 hours.

However, a week after she got it rebonded, she noticed that her hair was still frizzy and dry. So, she went back to have it fixed.

She underwent a second treatment that went for five hours.

But the long, shiny and straight hair that she wanted turned to a disaster after the treatment left permanent damage on her scalp.

Almost five years since it happened in 2015, the hair hasn’t grown on Pulongbarit’s scalp and it even affected her eyebrow.

Since then, Pulongbarit lost her confidence to go to work for fear that people might taunt.

Forty-three-year-old Mary Ann Florano has her own hair horror story to share: she did a bleaching treatment all by herself.

Florano who loves to change the color of her hair decided to buy bleach in a local market to turn her medium brown hair color to a more lighter one.

But the do-it-yourself knowledge she learned from watching hairdressers at salons caused damage to her hair.

Now, it’s shorter and drier compared to the long one she had before.

Joshua Labrador has a different hair story to share: He underwent a hair relaxing treatment for free.

The 21-year-old wanted to have his bangs straightened. He took the advice of his friend Justin Aguila to avail of the free hair relaxing treatment at a salon.

He ended up spending more than P150 for medications after a portion of his scalp got irritated that later on turned into a watery wound with pus.

Dermatologists who separately examined the three said what happened to them were caused by the chemicals that were placed on their hair.

For Pulongbarit, Dr. Marichu Talastas said her hair had traumatic hair treatment which developed into hot comb alopecia or permanent hair loss.

She advised those who want to undergo hair rebonding treatment to give a window period of three to six months before you undergo another one.

For Labrador, Dr. Maria Isabelita Joya diagnosed him to have contant irritant dermatitis where the scalp area was irritated by the chemical placed on it.

As for those who wanted DIY hair treatments, Venus Marquez, a TESDA Accredited Competency Assessor in Hairdressing NC II and III, said being a hairdresser takes training to know the proper chemicals and techniques in any hair treatments or hair styling.
