Friend dunks girl in hot tub, ruined hr ‘princess hair’
A nail technician spent 50 gruelling hours trying to comb knots out her matted extensions after not following the aftercare advice.
Lissa Patterson was initially over the moon with her ‘lush’ extensions but ended up with a ‘monstrosity’ of a hair-do after they became soaked in chlorine.
She had spent £500 on her ‘princess hair’ but ended up ruining them two months later after jumping in the hot tub with friends.
The 18-year-old said she woke up looking like she’d been ‘tied to the bottom of a car and driven along the M40’.
Her friends were left ‘speechless’ at the ‘worst case of bed head’ they’d collectively ever seen.
Lissa admits she was advised to avoid chlorinated water, not wear her hair in a bun or fall asleep with wet hair after having extensions fitted – and she managed to do all three in one night.
Thanks to lockdown restrictions, she had to wait a painful three months to fix her destroyed locks and is now sharing her ordeal to spare others from facing similar issues.
The 18-year-old bought her extensions and had them professionally fitted after getting a short bob – which she ended up hating.
Lissa said: “I was just with my friends one night in a hot tub drinking and one of them thought it was funny to dunk me under.
“I was like ‘oh my God, my hair extensions, what are you doing?
