Chemical Hair Straightener Lawsuits

Hair straighteners manufactured by companies including L’Oreal have been demonstrated to increase the risk of uterine cancer and other types of cancers in the individuals who use them.

According to lawsuits already filed, these manufacturers failed to warn users that their products could increase the risk of uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, and endometriosis.

Independent studies conducted to date have shown that women who used these chemical hair straightener products more than four times a year had more than double the risk of developing uterine cancer. [Link to the study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute]

In addition to uterine cancer, the main focus of the NIH study, other studies have linked chemical hair straighteners to a significant increase in the risk of developing uterine fibroids, and endometriosis.

These products work by using heat and chemicals to break down the natural bonds in the hair. Applying chemical hair straighteners breaks disulfide bonds in the hair allowing it to be straightened. The chemicals found in common hair straighteners include ammonium thioglycolate, sodium hydroxide, sodium thioglycolate, formaldehyde, cyclosiloxanes, diethanolamine, parabens, and more – the studies have concluded that exposure to these chemicals may cause cancer and/or other types of health issues.

Who Is Most At Risk From These Chemical Hair Straightener Products?

Rates of uterine cancer among black women has been rising, and researchers say chemical straighteners may be to blame. Around 60% of the women involved in the study who reported using hair straighteners were black women.
