Should i sue them? need some help here. (with pix)

ok, first of all, i am sorry if it is going to be alittle hard to understand everything that i am going to say, not only do i have an horrible "written english", but dislexia should be my second name.

ok here we go...

I have pretty hard, and curly hair. Not that i have the really curly ones that looks like a Jew-fro but when i spike up my hair, they will fall down and curl a little bit.

In december of last year, i found that a local hair dresser at the mall, has a treatment that will "relax" the hair and make them pretty straight.
So i thought to myself, WTH, lets try it.
The Gentleman, that did it was very carefull.
He used a 2 step process that is based out of 3.
Making sure the cone would not tuch the scalp, tell me that the chemical could burn me and might irritate it, if it were to get scratch.
And it looked great, i mean i was very happy with it, unfortunatly it does not stay like that, when ever the roots grow, they are back to the old curly ones.

Last week, i decided to do it again.
Went there again, but the guy wasnt there, so they gave me that bubbly women, she looks ok for the job.
We started the process like last time, but she stopped at step one and nutraliser.
3 days later my hair were almost back to normal.

So i went back in there, and told them i was not happy with it.
So the lady told me she will use a stronger process. I did tell her i wanted her to use the 2 step, but she told me they didnt had any.

SO here we go, she puts that things on my hair, didnt really paid attention to the cone and i told her twice that she was hurting me a little with it.
Within 7mns of the 10mn process i told her it was burning me, and she needed it to take it off.
We then moved to the shampoo, and she kept scratching me with head of the shower, once again i kept telling her it was to hard.
But she didnt stop there, she used 2 "special shampoos", then some nutraliser, and put a shower cap on my head, and off i go to the weird "heating" machine where i felt so uncomfortable seating between a hot blonde and an old women.
Hot, hot, hot it was underthere, so i told her how much longer, and she switched it off.

she then asked me if i wanted to get my hair cut, since it was for free.
WTH lets freshen up the back and the tips.
I did tell her that my head was burning a little bit, she told me it was fine, and will go away by tomorow.

During the evening, my hair felt like they were stock to my head, and it was burning, and damn did i have a headache.

This morning after during the shower it was very difficult to shampoo my hair, it was painfull and i couldnt get it to foam.
Then while shaving i look closer and i had burn marks at my hairlines, and some on the scalpe.

Now it looks like i have "doll hair", my head hurts, and i look like i got beat up and the back of my head looks weird.












(the pictures do not capture it well, kind of hard to take pictures at this distance by yourself with the XTI.)

So today i went there, and talked to the women, she told me it was ok, it was nothing to worry about, and handing me over a check for the refund.
I had later a talk with some friends, and said that i should maybe look into a money settlement, or even go to court for it.

Would i stand a chance, would i really get anything out of it.

Everyone keep telling that this is america and everyone will sue any1 to make money.

And money is been a little tight lately.

Who should i talk to about this, and if i were to try to go to court what sort of lawyer should i talk to?

PS: i was going to try out a job interview next tuesday, but looking like this i sure wil not, so an other sure week with no job.

That really sucks... but this is definitely not something to go to court over. >_<

They gave you your refund right? That sounds fair to me.

That is not sound reasoning to sue.

Re: Should i sue them? need some help here. (with pix)

Dont...1st off, who ever says this is America, sue to get your money or w/e is a scum bag and is the number 1 reason why this country is going to hell in a hand basket. There are times where it's necessary, and times that it is silly. Like the time the lady sued McDonald's because her coffee was too hot. Hey jack ass, dont put it between your legs! Now in a case where you caused a car accident and the person you hit ended up loosing function in their arm or w.e...ok, I can see that cause it was something the person directly caused that dramatically changed the life of another. My father is actually suing a guy right now that was driving a truck and literally pushed his car (which is a Mazda 6) into a pole and my dad has been having cronic neck pains. My dude isn't looking for a quick buck or lots of money. Enough to cover medical bills, and any future medical bills that may arise.

But back on topic. What the lady did was probably negligence. However; You went through the steps and went back and talk to them and they gave you your money back and maybe she will be fired or put on warning or w.e. You will heal and maybe its a lesson learned. Now, if you're hair starts to fall out and/or the burns get infected and completely alter the way you look, I do agree with suing. But please don't be that D-bag. The "silly American" looking for a quick buck. People fuck up and if it's something minor, it is what it is. Times might be hard money wise, but why make someone's life impossible because you can't make ends meat? I've been unemployed for over 2 months now and I know what you mean about hard times, but don't ruin someone elses life.

1- friends a dumbass and dick.
2- you got your money back. ehh.. not much more you can do..
3- if you WERE to sue.. you dont have much of an argument... this kind of thing happens all the time.
4- If you were to sue... the lawyer would most likely cost more than any kind of money you could make off of sueing the haircuttery.
5- remember. when you sue the store, you take money from everyone in it. including that guy that did a good job.

Re: Should i sue them? need some help here. (with pix)

what i think i ll do is go over there again, and ask them to pay for the medical treatment, i went to the pharmacy, and adviced me to go see a doctor to get some cream to apply on my head to try and make sure that i do not loose my hair.
and all the pain killers i am going thru right now, i have been taking them for the past 48 hours.

wierd... but id assume that the ointments that the doctor would give you wouldnt be very expensive.. if you push the store too much youll end out screwed. they will simply ignore you, and sueing them wont work.
