Dangerous Hair Accessories – Your Life At risk!

One fine winter afternoon I was walking by the side of the road to catch an auto and suddenly a young lady came and hit me from the front. The wheel hit my right leg and I lost my balance. I felt straight backward injuring my head. And the only reason for my severe injury was my hair accessory (Jaw Clip). I had wrapped my hair with a jaw clip. Since my jaw clip was brittle and made out of plastic, it broke into pieces and a small piece of the same jaw clip broke into my head. This accident left me unconscious for more than 5 minutes. I started suffering from Blurred Vision and Dizziness. In any case, if I hadn’t put on the hair accessories I would have saved my head and the accident would not had been a severe one. You all call it butterfly clips right…. But it became an alligator in disguise for me.
