FOAMING MAD! : Woman mistook Expanding foam for hair mousse and ends up in hospital!

Did anyone see this woman at Ascot?


A Woman ended up in hospital after ‘confusing builder’s foam with her hair mousse’, the mystery woman, believed to be from Eastern Europe, grabbed the wrong can when doing her hair and accidentally used expanding builder’s foam instead of hair mousse.

She can be seen in the picture sitting in a waiting room, other patients couldn’t help but stop and stare at the poor woman sitting there with a giant solid helmet of polyurethane foam on her head.

What I cannot explain though are the twigs and leaves that are stuck to the foam, maybe more than a simple mistaken spray can?

 Important: always read the label on the can!

Builders’ and handymen use Expanding polyurethane foam for everything from preventing leaks, to filling gaps during construction and holding items in place, but until now, never for Hair-styling-maybe this is a new trend!
