"I really want to laugh, even though it's rude. But can I ask, did you just eat a dragonfruit?"

Huang said she did not expect her story to be shared so widely.

"I told my hairdresser I complained about it and it got on the news," she said. "I apologized to him because I didn't want to hurt his feelings."

She added that her hairdresser apologized to her too, saying that she could let him know if she had any problems in the future.

"I probably won't be doing anything to my hair for some time," she said.
