Woman sues Walmart after shampoo allegedly caused knots

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Apr 16, 2014

Jennifer Fahey, 30, purchased a bottle of Equate Everyday Clean Dandruff Shampoo at her local Portland, Ore., Walmart. However, when she used it, the shampoo allegedly tangled her hair so much that she needed to get almost all of her hair cut off.

The bottle's cost is estimated as $3.44 on Walmart's webstore, yet Fahey is suing Walmart for $10,000.

The Oregonian reports, "Fahey’s is seeking the $10,000 for her 'past, present and future physical and emotional pain and suffering, anxiety, humiliation and embarrassment, expenses for replacement hair, along with diminished and lost wages,' according to her suit." The suit also seeks a cash award for her alleged "loss of life’s pleasures and activities.'”

The hair cut supposedly left only four inches of hair, when her hair had been a few feet long originally.

Besides Walmart, shampoo manufacturer Vi-Jon is also named in the suit.
