Consumers should always read labels – for food, beauty or anything. Doing so would prevent unnecessary worries and troubles to come. This is the story of an 11-year-old girl named Eliana Lawrence, who lost most of her beautiful red hair due to one beauty product.
2 years ago and right before she turned 10-years-old, Eliana’s hair started to fall off, patch by patch. Soon enough, she became almost bald. This alarmed Eliana’s mother.
Wen Hair Care was supposedly ‘natural’, and even had a celebrity endorsing it! Evidently, these were all false claims just to market the products.
Eliana had only used Wen’s cleansing conditioner for a mere 3 times – only to invite devastating results. However, it was not only the conditioner that is deadly to consumers.
To date, the parent company which owns WEN has gotten over 21,000 cases of customer feedback – and they aren’t good. To warn locals, the FDA has issued a red alert, warning consumers not to purchase WEN as they do cause unwanted rashes, permanent baldness, and continuous hair loss.
Investigations showed that WEN hair care is the main culprit for Eliana’s devastating hair loss. With each usage, more hair starts to die and fall out – causing baldness.
Eliana wasn’t the only one who experienced such a tragedy – last year, a woman had also sued WEN for causing her to go bald as well, after she used their conditioner and shampoo combo.
Unfortunately, the FDA cannot issue product recalls on WEN’s behalf. The company has to do it themselves, regardless whether their products are safe to use or not.
Today, Eliana still has bald patches on her head. Although some of her hair grew back, her scalp has been left permanently damaged due to WEN. She now pushes for change – against the formally overlooked FDA regulatory laws which primarily concern consumer cosmetics and healthcare product issues.
Eliana bravely shows her bald head to the camera, and is all over the local news!
