HOUSTON – A Baytown man has pursued legal action in response to what he asserts was a bad hair dye job, Harris County District Court records show.
Leroy Williamson is suing Regis Corp., doing business as TGF Hair Salon, in the Harris County 189th District Court.
Court papers filed on Nov. 30 say that Williamson requested the service at the defendant’s business at a Walmart located at 4900 Garth Rd. in Baytown on Nov. 29, 2016.
An employee reportedly failed to disclose the possible side effects of a chemical applied to Williamson’s hair, as well as left him unattended for approximately 30 minutes.
“The plaintiff expressed his discomfort to the employee stating that his head and ears were ‘burning like fire,’” the suit says.
The original petition claims that the chemical caused the plaintiff to suffer sores and “patches of hair missing.” According to Williamson, his injuries prompted his employer to send him home the next day.
The complainant sought medical attention and missed 64 days of work, the suit says.
Consequently, Williamson seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
He is represented by the law firm Spencer & Associates, PLLC in Houston.
