A range of copper hair extensions is being recalled after consumers reported it had an adverse effect on their hair.
The cosmetic company, which was founded by the same owner as The Hair Band, said on Tuesday that all its products had a potential for irritation and allergic reactions.
The Hairband is a UK-based company that sells a range of hair bands for use in the UK.
Consumers were advised to stop using their products immediately.
The recall covers all products that contain copper, a metal which has been linked to an increased risk of allergic reactions in children and people with genetic abnormalities, according to the company.
Consumers should not use products made with copper for more than a couple of weeks, the company said in a statement.
The company also said it would “work with the UK Government to investigate the causes of the reported allergic reactions.”
The HairBand website describes its products as “the ultimate hair band”.
It was founded in 2014 by Michael Totten, who is now chairman of The Hair Bowl, which makes hair bands, hair bands and hair extensions.
The brand’s product line includes hair bands that can be used in the scalp, neck and back.
Totten told the BBC that he did not know the reasons for the recalled products.
“I do not have any information to share at this time,” he said.
The product comes in three colours: black, grey and white.
Consumers can choose from three sizes: 3cm, 6cm and 12cm.
They can also choose from hair bands made of metal or plastic. It costs £15 to order a HairBand, which comes in five styles.
The website said that customers could return any products purchased by April 28 for a full refund.
A spokeswoman for The Hairbowl said the company was aware of a recall.
“We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused,” she said.
“This is the first time that we have had to recall any of our products.”
The company did not have details on the type of product that was recalled or the number of customers affected.
