The Hidden Danger of Wearing Hair Claw Clips While Driving

Why You Should Avoid Wearing Hair Claw Clips While Riding in a Car

Hair claw clips have become a popular accessory for many women. You may not realize it, but wearing these hair accessories while riding in a car can pose a serious danger. Just recently, women have came forward with sharing their devastating experiences wearing a hair claw clip while involved in a car accident. In the event of an accident, the clip can become a projectile, meaning it can continue in motion by its own inertia, and cause a serious injury to the head. It is important to learn about the potential hazards and how to avoid them to stay safe on the road. 

The Risks of Wearing Hair Claw Clips While Riding in a Vehicle

While hair claw clips may seem harmless, they can become a serious hazard when worn in a moving vehicle. In the event of a collision, the clip can become embedded in your skull and be fatal to the driver or passengers. This instance happened to a young woman who experienced a sharp turn that shoved her head backward, thrusting a claw clip into her scalp.

Another horrific instance occurred to a woman who was involved in a car accident that caused her claw clip to smush into her head where it remained lodged until a medical professional was able to take it out. The clip left an 11-inch gash in her scalp. 

To avoid this risk, it’s best to remove any hair accessories before getting behind the wheel. Stay safe on the road by being aware of these potential hazards. 


Alternatives to Hair Claw Clips for Safe Driving

If you want to keep your hair out of your face while driving, there are plenty of safe alternatives to hair claw clips. Consider using a headband, hair tie, or scrunchie instead. These options are less likely to become loose and pose a hazard in the event of a collision. Additionally, you can style your hair in a way that doesn’t require any accessories at all, such as a low ponytail or braid. Remember, safety should always come first when driving.
