The 8-year-old girl was airlifted to hospital following the incident in Tokoroa yesterday afternoon.
She suffered a head injury, the Westpac Waikato Rescue Helicopter said.
"This was an unusual incident, a result of the patient having her hair caught in the drive mechanism of the cart while being towed by another cart," it said.
