Beauty Parlor Stroke Syndrome - A New Threat At Hair Salons!

Friday, 8 April 2016 5 Comments A+ a-

Hi Lovelies!
   The post title might scare you but breathe down, I came up with such problems encountered lately which is rare but can't be ignored as well. You might have heard many things getting wrong at beauty parlour, like getting a bad haircut, breaking out after having facial, makeup going wrong etc. But this thing is completely different from all these minor issues. When I read this I was completely shocked and thought to share with you guys as well - Beauty Parlor Stroke Syndrome - A New Threat At Hair Salons!

  Been from medical field I was taught that Stroke does happen because of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, atherosclerosis etc. but getting a stroke by just getting get your hair shampooed is just difficult to get. But Elizabeth Smith of San Diego has experienced it in 2014 and sued the hair salon for it. She had weakness in her left arm and leg and wasn't able to stand properly which was later followed by vomitings. Her CT scan revealed that arteries in her neck have been damaged due to hyperextension of neck or too and fro motions occurring while shampooing at chair and sink.

"When one of those cervical arteries is damaged in some sort of way, you can get what's called a dissection, which is damage of the inside of the blood vessel, leading to abnormal flow and clotting, and then those clots can shoot north into the brain and cause a stroke," said Steven R. Zeiler, M.D., Ph.D., head of stroke research at Johns Hopkins reported on Buzzfeed. In medical terminology now it's called Beauty Parlor Stroke Syndrome. This is not the first case which was reported.

  Well it's a rare case but just need a single appointment to happen. Better to avoid this go for salons having a good neck support chair or adjustable chair. If not you can easily prop up a rolled towel under your neck to keep your neck bent and keep it staright with your spine. Stop the shampooing session if you feel uncomfortable. These little measures can save your life. So enjoy your trip to salons and don't forget these little cautious measures.
Lovexoxo.
