Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hair highlighting procedures are very common throughout the world. While rarely reported, potential adverse events to such procedures include allergic and irritant contact dermatitis, thermal burns, and chemical burns. Herein, we report two cases of female adolescents who underwent a hair highlighting procedure at local salons and sustained a chemical burn to the scalp. The burn etiology, clinical and histologic features, the expected sequelae, and a review of the literature are described.
