Legal assistant Irene Myangoh bought hair piece from salon in Nairobi

  • She was forced to shave her hair and take antibiotics after her ordeal
  • Salon manager says she has fitted ten weaves from the same package

  • A woman claimed she was plagued with blinding headaches after she was fitted with a human hair weave reportedly filled with flesh-eating maggots that burrowed into her head.
    Irene Myangoh, a personal assistant at a law firm in Nairobi, Kenya, paid a salon for the hair piece which doctors believe may have come from a corpse.
    After two weeks, she started suffering from severe headaches which painkillers did little to ease.
    When blood tests and a brain scan also came back negative, she went back to her doctor who examined her scalp and reportedly found maggots eating into her skull.
    The doctor said the maggots had likely hatched from eggs contained in the hair which she believed came from a dead body, it was reported by African internet TV station iReportersTV.
    No further details were given about the maggots and the doctor could not be reached for comment by the station.
    The manager of the salon said she had fitted ten weaves from the package where Miss Myangoh's came from, adding that she had sold 150 pieces from the entire batch in less than two months.
    The woman, who did not want to be named, said: 'I am shocked to hear this because this is the first time such a thing is happening to my clients.
    'I will get more information from my supplier because we import these weaves from the UK, USA and India.'

    HAIRDRESSER ARRESTED OVER BABY FACTORY BUSINESS.                                                            

     A hairdresser,her fiance and two other persons were recently arrested by Enugu State Police Command over alleged baby factory business.

    Ifeoma Obika(the hair dresser),a native of Oguta,Imo State was arrested for allegedly using her hair salon on Chime Avenue,Enugu as an undercover baby business.

    It was learnt that the police on Sunday that when the police visited her residence at Mbanefo Street, New Haven,an about-to-deliver pregnant lady was found there.

    The victim, whose identity was given as Ujunwa Egbe, from Ituku in Awgu Local Government Area of the state, was reported to have been taken into custody by the lovers, with a promise that she would be paid N100, 000 upon delivery of the baby.

    The state’s police spokesman, Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the arrest, stated that “Obike combines the lucrative business of baby factory with the hair salon business.”.                    He said, “She was arrested alongside someone she identified as her would-be husband, a patent medicine dealer, a self acclaimed doctor and a pregnant girl on the verge of delivery.

    “Obike was not a relative of Ujunwa Egbe, the pregnant girl, who has been in her custody waiting to be delivered of a baby and to be paid off with the sum of N100, 000.”

    It was learnt that Egbe had told the police that she was impregnated by someone unknowingly and had wanted to abort the pregnancy.

    But when she met one Obinna Arum of Obofia Amechi Awkunanaw, for abortion, he advised her to keep the baby. Then Arum linked Egbe with Obike to take care of her and the pregnancy. She was to be paid N100, 000 after delivery for her  to forfeit the baby.”

    Also arrested was one Chidi Meniru of Ezeagu, who claimed to be a medical doctor with a clinic on Amechi Street in New Haven, Enugu.

    Meniru denied being a member of the syndicate, but said he had in the past delivered a certain girl of her baby under an agreement with the other suspects.

    Ifeoma’s lover, Obike, who said he hailed from Isiukwuato in Abia State, told the police that they had four kids, though yet to be married formally.

    The police, however, said full investigations had commenced on the incident.


    This is certainly good news for folks with grey hair as researchers have found a treatment to reverse grey hair. This can also be used for people with the skin condition vitiligo.

    This means those who want their hair black again can safely do away with dyes.

    Scientists found people who are going grey develop “massive oxidative stress” via an accumulation of hydrogen peroxide in the hair follicle, which causes hair to bleach itself from the inside out.

    According to the FASEB Journal, the team, which includes experts from Bradford University’s School of Life Sciences, discovered the accumulation of hydrogen peroxide can be remedied with a treatment.

    They described it as “a topical, UVB-activated compound called PC-KUS (a modified pseudocatalase)”, the report said.

    The treatment can also be used for people with the skin condition vitiligo, which causes a loss of pigmentation. In 1993 Michael Jackson claimed to have developed vitiligo.

    Study author Professor Karin Schallreuter, a specialist in vitiligo, said: “To date, it is beyond any doubt that the sudden loss of the inherited skin and localised hair colour can affect those individuals in many fundamental ways.

    “The improvement of quality of life after total and even partial successful repigmentation has been documented.”

    The research team made their discovery after studying an international group of 2,411 patients.

    FASEB Journal editor-in-chief Gerald Weissman said: “For generations, numerous remedies have been concocted to hide grey hair but now, for the first time, an actual treatment that gets to the root of the problem has been developed.

    “While this is exciting news, what’s even more exciting is that this also works for vitiligo.

    “This condition, while technically cosmetic, can have serious socio-emotional effects on people.

    “Developing an effective treatment for this condition has the potential to radically improve many people’s lives.”


    Wonders shall never end, a Waco pastor recently started a controversy when he banned his church leadership staff from wearing hair weaves.

    "Our black women are getting weaves trying to be something and someone they are not. Be real with yourself is all I'm saying," Pastor A.J. Aamir told America Preachers online.

    According to him, wearing hair weaves he told his leadership at Resurrecting Faith Church, creates a "false image" that is associated with women who have low self-esteem.

    Aamir, 39, leads a congregation whose average age is 22, according to American Preachers. He told the publication that he was raised in a strict household by his parents, who are members of the Islamic faith.

    While he acknowledged that he cannot legally prohibit women from wearing weaves in church, "he still highly disapproves it," the publication reported.

    Aamir's words of advice quickly went viral, prompting scores of comments from men and women alike on the American Preachers site.

      In the era where ladies prefer to rock human hair extensions, Nigerian ladies may run the risk of buying stolen human hair, CNN just confirmed.

    CNN has asked ladies to beware as hair robbers are on the rise. It was discovered that women in Venezuela are now warned to be careful of how they wear their hair as a group known as Piranhas are now stealing women's hair straight from their head.

    The robbers will hold women at gunpoint in malls and tell them to tie their hair into a ponytail so that they can then cut it off and sell it to beauty salons as hair extensions.

    Theses hair extensions are also sold to human hair manufacturing companies where they are then treated and exported to other countries, Nigeria inclusive.

    So beware, you might be wearing a stolen hair!
