It is a lesson that the East European woman won't forget in a hurry: Read the label on the can before using it.
She ended up in a hospital after confusing her hair mousse with a can of expanding builder's foam.
The woman's image, while she sits in a hospital's waiting room, has gone viral on social media. She looks lost and distressed with a giant solid helmet of polyurethane foam on her head.
The image shows twigs and leaves stuck to the foam - which means there's more to it than meets the eye.

Expanding polyurethane foam has a number of uses in DIY situations - although 'hair product' is not one of them.
Builders and at-home-handymen use the foam for everything from preventing leaks, to filling gaps during construction and holding items in place, the Mail Online reports.
