What Do Plaintiffs Allege is Wrong with the Product?
Plaintiffs allege the conditioning system causes severe side effects such as:
- Extreme hair loss
- Scalp irritation
- Hair breakage
- Permanent hair damage
Why are Plaintiffs Suing?
They claim the company failed to warn about the risks associated with the hair care system. In products liability law, all products must be reasonably safe for their intended purpose. Any time a product has an inherit danger that can’t eliminated without making the product less functional, the manufacturer must warn customers. A manufacturer can be sued for violating this law.
What Does False Advertising Have to Do with the WEN Class Action Lawsuit?
Plaintiffs also allege the company committed false advertisement when selling it’s conditioning system. False advertisement involves making false or misleading claims about a product to induce a customer into making a purchase. The lawsuit claims WEN blocked or erased negative comments on its social media sites to hide side effects.
