An 18-year-old Japanese girl is suing her local government after her school made her repeatedly dye her naturally-brown hair black, media reports say.
The girl says she was told she would have to leave the high school near Osaka if she did not comply with a rule requiring students’ hair to be black.
It is being reported that she says the dye damaged her hair and her scalp.
Kaifukan high school said its policy was to ban students from dyeing or bleaching hair.
The school’s instruction to the girl to dye her hair was reportedly despite her mother telling the school that she was born with brownish hair.
