A Darby woman is suing two companies she claims is responsible for selling a shampoo which burned the hair off of her scalp.
Carrie Fitzpatrick filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas naming JF Labs Inc. and AFAM Concept Inc. as the defendants.
Fitzpatrick of Darby filed her suit on Feb. 12 and seeks monetary damages from the two defendants, both from Chicago. According to her complaint, Fitzpatrick was applying Hawaiian Silky No Base Relaxer Conditioning Cream and neutralizer shampoo product as intended when her scalp began burning. Fitzpatrick says says she suffered hair loss, abrasions to her head and scarring on her scalp as a result of the allegedly defective product.
Fitzpatrick is suing the two companies for the role each played in the manufacturing or sale of the shampoo. She is suing on claims of products liability and seeks to hold the defendants strictly liable.
Fitzpatrick is seeking more than $50,000 in damages. She is being represented by attorney Craig A. Falcone of Sacchetta and Falcone.
