PORTLAND, Ore., April 16 (UPI) -- An Oregon woman whose hair used to reach her backside has filed a $10,000 lawsuit against Walmart for selling a shampoo that allegedly caused her hair to get so tangled she was forced to cut most of it.

According to Jennifer Fahey's suit, the bottle of “Equate Everyday Clean Dandruff Shampoo” she bought at a Portland Walmart caused her hair to become impossibly entangled in seconds.

“She was not able to remove the knots and as a result she had to cut a large portion of her hair from the top and back of her head,” the suit states.

According to Fahey’s attorney, William Ball, the 30-year-old woman had to cut off a few feet of hair, leaving her with about four inches, a loss he called “devastating.”

The suit, which was filed Monday in Multnomah County Circuit Court, also names shampoo maker Vi-Jon as a defendant.

Fahey’s is seeking the $10,000 for "past, present and future physical and emotional pain and suffering, anxiety, humiliation and embarrassment, expenses for replacement hair, along with diminished and lost wages” as well as the “loss of life’s pleasures and activities.”
