To all of our customers that want to know why our hair policy is as it it.
Shelbi Crouch, pictured on January 10 listening to her plastic surgeon, has undergone several painful surgeries to recover after a freak go-kart accident six months ago

Ms Crouch was wearing a helmet and some sort of neck brace. She was told that her hair was fine peeking out from underneath the helmet. But when the kart hit a bump, her hair somehow got lodged in one of the axles. Her hair and scalp was essentially ripped off. Her mother, Sherri Crouch-Wilson, told the station that her daughter suffered a whole host of injuries, including a skull fracture, traumatic brain injury, broken temporal bones, and paralysis on her face. Mrs Crouch-Wilson said that the most difficult thing for her daughter remains coming to terms with her loss. ‘She’s really struggling with…the identity of not having that hair and probably never being about to have her own hair,’ she told WTHR in September. Ms Crouch, who was voted to have the best hair of her high school class, now frequents doctors’ and surgeons’ offices to repair the damage from the freak accident. Already, the 20-year-old has had several painful surgeries and skin grafts, and can expect many more. For now, Ms Crouch often covers her head with hats, caps, and scarves. Many ask her if she’s undergoing chemotherapy. Her story can be further read in the Daily Journal.

'I was thinking I was going to die': Teenage girl's hair is ripped from her scalp after it got stuck in a go-kart engine at a Virginia amusement park - forcing paramedics to cut the vehicle apart to lift her out WARNING: Graphic Images Matia Ruffin, 16, was left traumatized after her hair was ripped from her scalp at Fun Land in Fredericksburg over the weekend Cell phone footage shows paramedics working to free the girl from the vehicle, which left Ruffin with a large bald spot and in a lot of pain Unique Coleman, Ruffin's mother, shared that the family had been on the new multi- level go-kart race track when she heard the frantic screaming Coleman and Fun Land employees used two knives and wire cutters to try to cut Ruffin free but just left her in more pain before authorities arrived Paramedics had to take apart the vehicle and use a harness to retrieve the teen The high school sophomore is beyond distraught since losing her shoulder-length hair, unable to return to school
Ruffin's braid was stuck for what felt like an hour, the teen shared. 'It was horrible. It was scary, horrifying, it was bad,' Ruffin said. Coleman and Fun Land employees used two knives and wire cutters to try to cut Ruffin free but just left her in more pain before authorities arrived. Paramedics had to take the vehicle apart and use a harness to free the teen. 'She had a blood clot where her scalp actually lifted from her skull,' the mother said. The high school sophomore is beyond distraught since losing her shoulder-length hair, and has been unable to return to school. 'It's completely bald, there's nothing there,' she said. 'I'm self-conscious, scared to show people. I'm stuck with it for life. I have nightmares about it. I think about it all the time.' On their website, Fun Land states that visitors with hair longer than their shoulder have to have it secured. Ruffin asserted that hers was tied but became loose because of high speed. 'The staff, I didn't feel like they were equipped to handle any emergency situation,' Coleman added. Fun Land personnel stressed that no incident like this has happened previously and said that safety policies were in place to handle emergency situations.
