Check Your Weaves: Worm Infested Hair In The Market

  Irene Myangoh, a personal assistant working at a law firm in Nairobi went to an upmarket hair salon along Kenyatta Avenue, and spent more than N5,500 on a human hair weave.
Two weeks later she started suffering from severe headache that would not go away. She would wake up with severe headache at night.

She went to a private
doctor who gave her drugs for the relief of mild to moderate pain of inflammatory origin with or without fever; they would only work for a few hours and then the headache would be back worse than even before.
Desperate, she went to see a specialist who did blood tests and even a brain scan. All the tests were negative but the headache persisted, making her unable to concentrate at work and sleeping very poorly.
She went back to her doctor who decided to examine her scalp and under the beautiful weave he found worms!
The worms were burrowing into her skull and after sending the samples to the lab they found that the hair had eggs from which the worms had developed. Irene had to shave after this ordeal and took antibiotics for two weeks.
Elsewhere, 16-year-old girl from Buruburu, a Nairobi surburb, also suffered the same fate but unfortunately for her she died. Cobweb eggs were found in her hair after she died.
There was a profound cobweb design in her weaved hair. She dropped dead after constant headaches.
The root cause? The weave had unnoticed spider eggs. The warmth produced after weaving provided a very conducive environment for the eggs to hatch.
A spider grew in her scalp and bit her. The poison found its way to her blood. She could not survive the attack.culled

    I have heard a lot of stories about weaves. The best thing I think is to just be proud of our kinky hair and be safe.

    These worms (maggots) are mostly found in human hair because they were not properly treated.

    I pity women who take pride in sticking another woman's hair to their head. I can't,if I must wear hair,it has to be synthetic or nothing.
    I hate the practice and can't even touch the so called human. hair on my body.

    I can vouch that Nigerian women wear a lot of dead people's hair in this country.
    I'M all for ,CHIMAMANDA ADICHIE for the proud African woman that she is. Never ashamed of her heritage. She even plaits thread hair to attend events.

      Little wonder your 8year old blog is not growing.Rather than build your dwarfed blog, you spend all your internet time looking for which story is true and which is not.
      Aunty Eya and other bloggers build their on while you research for them.

      Be wise hon.
