Here is a report from the UK's Daily Mail. Ain't this some ISH!!!
A woman died from a massive allergic reaction that could have been caused by the glue in her hair extensions, a pathologist said yesterday.
Atasha Graham, 34, who had used hair extensions for 14 years, collapsed after clubbing until the early hours.
Home Office pathologist Michael Heath told the inquest into her death that the latex glue used to apply her extensions – or the solvent for removing old ones – may have been to blame.
He added: ‘I’ve seen cases where people using solvent to apply extensions has actually caused anaphylactic shock.
‘There are about ten to 20 deaths a year in this country, many more in America. I have seen four in the last three months.’
Dr Heath told the hearing at Southwark Coroner’s Court in London: ‘The hair extensions in Atasha’s hair were of a latex type. This may or may not be related [to her death]. If it is the hair extension, normally a reaction would occur within half an hour of applying them.’
But he added that traces of glue or solvent could have seeped into her bloodstream hours later after she started perspiring on the dancefloor.
go natural ladies, we don't need to B putting animal fur in our heads. We don't have Dog hair, our hair is real, leave the pet hair *** the stores your only making the Asians Rich!
I had no idea this could happen. Now I'm nervous!
See it pays to go natural
follow me @c_makinyousmile. I follow back
Moral of the story - Leave the weave. Keep it naturale.
Stop wearing weaves and keep it natural African style.
Wow that's crazy
This is sad and a reason why black women should go natural. I'm glad I am.
she was pretty r.i.p.....
I knew those weaves were going to be the DEATH of you chics.
You look better without them s..hits
No disrespect but *** looked like f..uckin Sonic the Hedgehog with that s..hit
Only safe thing to do is keep it real.
Im trying real hard not to laugh at that sonic the hedgehog comment..R.I.P. young lady
NATURAL BLACK WOMAN HERE ALSO.TRYN TO TELL BLACK WOMEN TO STOP WITH THE WEAVE IS NOT GONNA HAPPEN U CAN CONTINUE TO TRY BUT THEY HAVE TO LOVE THEMSELVES THE WAY GOD CREATED THEM FIRST
get a sew in @mafiamaria
This is very sad..........Another strike against the hair fakeness..........
STRAIGHT NATURAL A DO IT.
Leave the weave alone. Jah Know Star
Ladies love your natural hair. It's not hard to take care of.
Sad but not sad. Have some pride, keep it natural! Those chemicals, weaves and other things black women put in their hair are highly toxic. why subject yourself to that in order to please someone else? If you do it for a man, than that man is def not worth your time if he can't love the natural way the creator has made you. I have mad respect for black women who keep it natural! Beautiful
I said leave the weave alone in a post years ago. That is what happens when people don't listen.
Same thing happened to one of my friends. Her hair stylist was lucky enough to notice the signs and call an ambulance. My friend stayed in the hospital for 3 days; throat closed up and everything!!!! Please be careful with these weaves. If you are going to wear a weave, test the products on your head first!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SAD.
I don't mind a woman with a weave, but to be unbweavable for fourteen years is a tragedy. Kind of more tragic than dying because for a decade in a half you thought you weren't good enough.
Ppl can wear weave if they want. It don't have nothin to do with tryna b white. FOH wit these go natural comments. For da next few weeks I have Indian in my family *** I'm proud!!! Rip tho.
Back away from the horse hair ladies
RIP TO HER
@Travis-J 100% correct.
I don't condone women who wear weaves, but if women are to wear them, please make sure they are installed properly. So sorry to hear of her passing due to something like this.
Wow wat a Way 2 Die' now all the folk who wana commit suicide should get that glue..Lady R.I.P
@Domino888, LMBO @ Sonic the Hedgehog! I am so mad at you for making me choke on my grits!
That London doctor is just too lazy to find out cause of death. He made all that stuff up about hair glue killing her. Stupid.
THIS PROBABLY HAPPENED BECAUSE SHE WAS PROBABLY TRYING TO IMPRESS A *** BLACK *** WHO WAS MORE INTERESTED IN HIS HOMEBOY'S BALD HEAD
King Beef Atl
That's *** up.
I am allergic to latex and cannot be around hair blue for this exact reason. I was rushed to the hospital unable to breathe because it got in my system from someone else. If you are allergic to latex you are alleegic to hair glue.
@Travis J I really doubt that women wear weave to impress black men...I have never met a black man that prefers weave over natural hair. So you can't blame black men this time lol.
And if a woman wants to throw a weave in her hair, that doesn't mean she hates her natural hair. Maybe she just wants to change it up a little. What's wrong with that?
BLACK WOMEN NEED TO START WEARING THEIR REAL HAIR.NAPPY HAIR IS THE BEST HAIR BECAUSE WE BLACKS DON'T GET FLEAS LIKE WHITE PEOPLE.WHITE PEOPLE HAVE ANIMAL LIKE HAIR SO THEY GET BUGS AND FLEAS.WHITE PEOPLE CAN BE COMPARED TO DOGS AND MONKEYS BECAUSE THEY SMELL LIKE AN ANIMAL AND THEY GET HEAD LICE.
Let that be a warning to black women...and second why the hell are you 34 in a club? why the hell aren't you at a grown adult spot? Just curious...very sad she lost her life but...
Stop putting POISON in your hair!!!!
Hi all, I hate to inform you of some home truths but - the story has been largely distorted by MTO in such bad taste too. So MTO have accessed the article and have distorted it, and presented it to you in a fashion designed to cause uproar amongst you all and seeing that a large number of you have fallen for it - I figured I had to enlighten you.
I am a Londoner (UK), as was the lady at heart of this story.
This story went out in the UK press yesterday. The actual tragedy occured last year in March 2011. No one dropped dead on a dancefloor. Such *** journalists that work for MTO, that prey on shock-factor stories and manipulate them completely for their benefit to grab our attention is despicable. For those of you interested in the true article- please see the link below:
OKAY SO MY LINK WAS REMOVED- simply go to google: and type 'Atasha Graham Daily Mail' - and read the actual article rather than be swept up in a tide of MTO lies. It doesn't require much effort to read and is certainly warranted by those of you who chose to hastily 'comment' on this piece - armed with inaccurate information. Thanks
This tragedy occured in May 2011 not March 2011 !
So this is why they always instruct not to put the glue directly on your scalp. That ish is lethal. RIP baby girl :(
How did I know these holier than thou *** would come out the woodwork? Smh rip to this woman. Glad I wear sew ins. I love my weave!
Oh heck no. I have a closure glued in my head right now.
Be careful of these high-tech science experiments.
Beyonce don't let yourself be the next victim...
My hair is natural but I wear a sew-in for a protective style. And sometimes I glue in the closure. I hate people who have their hair natural who try to make everyone else go natural. I like natural and I like straight. I'll wear both and it's nobody's business but mine.
That hairdo is HIT!!!!
***...that's messed up...r.I.p to her.....that hair doo was a hot mess though....I wear sew-ins if I'm not rocking my natural curly fro
which is exactly why beyond braided styles a weave will NEVER be attached to my head. I dont even relax I rock my hair flatironed straight
Her Name Though . . . .
Our sisters wouldnt be caught dead without a weave or wig in.... A *** shame.
2012 and our men are wearing skinny jeans trying to look like white *** punk rockers.....
And our women are still flying and sewing on the fur of their opressors.
Happy Black history month.
I'm sorry that society has MANY of my sistahs thinking they MUST wear weave in order to be beautiful! I have worn weave in the past, but as someone said it was because I didn't want to continuosly heat or burn out my OWN hair, or sometimes I wanted a new look without cutting on changing my hair.
But lets be HONEST... Weaves & Wigs were worn by Old White Politicians 100s of years ago... And MANY White Men still wear Comb overs til this day... So that allergic reaction could've happened to anyone.
R.I.P to her and I would just like to say that just because black women wear weave doesn't mean they're trying to be white I hate when ppl say that, that *** *** me off cuz white girls wear weave too.
WHAT A GREAT WAY TO BRING BLACK HISTORY MONTH!!!!
LMAO!!!! SO IS THIS ALL WE GOT TO DO TO GET RID OF THEM!!! I AM DEFINITELY GETTING INTO COSMETOLOGY IF THAT IS THE CASE!!! THE ONE THING THEY LOVE AS MUCH AS GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE IS WHAT'S NOW TO THEIR OWN DEMISE!!!! I AM ALL OVER THIS!!! I WILL STANDING AT THE STREET CORNER LIKE I AM SELLING ROCKS GETTING THESE TRAMPS TO PULL OVER SO I CAN PUT THIS IN THEIR HEAD!!! THIS IS THE BEST NEWS FOR BLACK PEOPLE SINCE DA FIRST OF THE MONTH!!! YO I AM ROUNDING UP MY INNER CIRCLE AND WE ARE FOR SURE GETTING INTO THIS!!
DIS BIGGER NEWS THAN FACEBOOK GOING PUBLIC!! M.T.O. DA HELL WRONG WITH YOU TODAY DIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOP STORY!!! HELL DIS SHOULD BE TOP STORY FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR!!! SERVES THEM RIGHT, KILLING YOURSELF CAUSE YOU CAN'T BEAT THE COMPETITION!!!!
HIDE YA KIDS FROM BLACK WOMEN IT'S TAX SEASON BABY!!!!
ALL UP IN YA!!!
Now if that don't convince weave queens of the world to go natural then NOTHING will! SMH..
We don't have to walk around with bald *** heads looking like dykes or butches if we don't want to. That is wrong with black women today, they get jealous when they see or encounter a woman that likes to look nice, no matter how she wears her hair. It is nothing with wigs or weaves if you wear them properly. You should take time and put them on properly and comb them and make sure they fit your face. Black women are some jealous ***. If you are loud and ghetto and look like a monster, you can be their home girls. Well I am just the opposite.
90% of yall need to take a 357 *** to the brain b/c your comments lack intellect, truth, and meaning. White, Black, Hispanic, whatever...your mothers should have swallowed you instead.
90% of YOU PEOPLE need to take a 357 *** to the brain b/c your comments lack intellect, truth, and meaning. White, Black, Hispanic, whatever...your mothers should have swallowed you instead. Your ignorance makes you think all Black people are supposed to go natural just because you do it. Your racist comments enable us to see how your self worth just be validated through racial hatred. If all Black women are supposed to go natural then everyone should stop wearing nail polish, chapstick, perfume/cologne, deodorant, lotion, and anything else you do not naturally produce. GO NATURAL, U BIGOTS! And you racists, whatever race you are, should pretend you are vampires and drive wooden stakes through your hearts because your death is the only way you won't have to be around people of different races...so DEAL WITH IT. oh, R.I.P., young lady.
ill stay silent like The Hater
follow it live it love it know it
The Insanity of the Black Woman never ceases to amaze me. Eventhough, the woman died from the weave/glue/Hair/DNA of a stranger. Do you think the rest of Black Women would stop letting their enemy poison them? No they will insist this would not happen to me. The price of trying to be White! If Black Women Could Wake Up and Be White Tomorrow There Would Not Be A Black Woman Left In America, Europe, and Africa. The Weaves They wear make all of them Bald headed from putting other people Hair/DNA in their Heads :) White Worship and Black Hatred of Self and Kind. Jesus, TV, and Magazine have done a number on the Black Woman.
thats what black *** get for being fake hahahahahaahahahahaa a
LMFAO @ DATOUCH !!
DAT WAS HILARIOUS!!!!
JustTooMuch has issues, she takes these to the heart. Anyway R.I.P to the lady. I really get sick of other black women convincing other black women with what they should do with hair, it's ridiculous, not all women will rock their natural hair, some like weaves, relaxers, straight, etc. Why are black women dividing themselves over hair texture? I'm a natural, I'm a weave head, I'm relaxed, look at it, doesn't make sense right? Even over hair there is division which shows me that some still don't have the sense to move on and stop the division. I am going to rock my natural hair, because I just want to. My personal choice, i have never convinced anyone else to do it, I mean why would I? I don't even wear weaves really, but I like it if it is nice and all. Black women need to do them ad stop worrying about the next black woman and stop trying to enforce what they want to do on others, it's annoying. It's sickening to hear how some blacks think, men like good looking women, relaxed hair, weaves and wigs, natural curly/kinky/nappy hair, if you look good you can get whoever you want, I know I can. Having natural hair doesn't mean you look good, I have seen plenty of unattractive women with that texture and plenty of attractive women with wigs, weave, and relaxed hair. Stop hating, look good and do you, I don't knock what another woman wants to do.
Naw somebody murdered her because of her eyebrows.
Hell yeah!! Keep wearing those weaves and that glue!! Sent by the kkk!! Pile it on! Maybe you'll look European when you're dead. Hahaha.
If negroids are so "happy"and "proud"to be negroid,why are they gluing,SILKY, CAUCASIAN, SUPERIOR,hair on their nappy pubic hair black heads?
