If you’re looking to donate your hair to a stranger, you may need to get permission from their parents, a court in California has ruled.
“Your request for hair transplantation is subject to the requirements of the California Civil Code,” Judge Robert Leyton wrote in a court ruling issued Friday.
In the ruling, Leyton also noted that the transplant will not be legal in California unless the transplant is performed in a licensed hair transplant center.
The court ordered a hearing on Monday for any person who wants to donate their hair to anyone who doesn’t have a parent or legal guardian who is willing to pay for the transplant.
A hair transplant is a procedure in which the hair is transplanted into the scalp of someone who has lost their hair, and is then returned to the person with the transplanted hair.
It’s usually done in a hair transplant clinic.
The legal battle began last year when a woman named Melissa Pardo asked her father to donate his hair.
She wanted to give it to her mother and brother.
Pardo said she couldn’t afford the transplant, so she asked her family to give her some of their hair as a way of saving money.
Petho’s father, Carlos Pardo, agreed.
After two surgeries, he said he wanted Pardo’s hair back.
But the court ruled that Pardo was entitled to some of her hair because it was her own.
The case eventually reached the California Supreme Court, which ruled that hair transplant recipients can’t be denied access to hair transplants, but that the Pardo family’s request for a hair-to-face transplant wasn’t protected under the state’s parental consent law.
Pardo appealed the decision, but the court reversed itself and said Pardo could give her own hair back as a condition of giving the hair to her daughter.
That ruling was a victory for the Pethos, who say that Petho is a victim of an unfair law.
“We’re pleased that the court recognized that our daughter is entitled to a hair donor from her father and not her mother, as the court determined in the Pardos’ favor,” Melissa Pethaos said in a statement.
“We’re hopeful that this ruling will protect our daughter’s right to give back to her father in a way that is in keeping with her wishes.”
