New York, NY asked in Personal Injury for New York

Q: If a hairstylist sells professional color to a client for at home use during the Coronavirus shutdown, are they liable

I couldn't fully type the question above but I want to know if the hairdresser is liable if the actual color causes hair damage or personal injury (not coronavirus). Can we have them sign a waiver that would exempt us from being held liable?

A: It depends on where you live, what’s the executive order or rule is regarding this, and whether you got the coronavirus and Got sick or died, and whether you can prove that this was caused by the product you purchased.
