I have blogged previously on having a special interest in beauty and hairdressing claims and hear from clients all to often about the impact that damage to their hair can have on them and their self esteem.

This article explored (albeit not in the context of negligence claims, but rather in the context of losing hair as a result of illness and, dealing with general bad hair days) the relationship that women have with their hair.  Apparently as women , the trichologist Philip Kingsley reports that we spend more time and effort on our hair than any other part of our beauty regime.  A study by OnePoll concluded that this can add to up an estimated £26,500.00 at the hairdressers and on products during our lifetime!
