In October 2022, a study assessing the connection between using certain hair products and uterine cancer was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The participants were over 33,000 women between the ages of 35 and 74 who had been using various hair products, including hair dyes, bleach, highlights, relaxers, and perms, for nearly 11 years. Of the participants, 378 came to struggle with uterine cancer, which was associated with chemical hair relaxers.
Approximately 60% of the women who used these products regularly were Black. While the average uterine cancer risk is 1.64%, the uterine cancer risk for women who frequently use chemical hair straightening products is 4.05%. The incidence rate of uterine cancer has recently been rising in the United States, particularly among Black women.
Still, the regular use of hair relaxers might also be responsible for ovarian cancer, as a large number of these products contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals. These substances can interfere with the hormonal systems, causing irreversible reproductive effects. The companies whose chemical hair strengthening products are suspected of containing harmful chemicals include:
While some hair relaxers have a strong alkali as the main ingredient, others are based on highly toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde and might also contain some of the following endocrine-disrupting substances:
TOXIC HAIR RELAXERS LIABILITY LITIGATION, MDL NO.
A group of plaintiffs injured by the use of chemical hair relaxers filed a motion of transfer with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to centralize all lawsuits brought through the federal court system before one judge. Some of the defendants in these lawsuits are L'Oreal, Strength of Nature, Dabur International, SoftSheen Carson, Godrej Son Holdings, Beauty Bell Enterprises, and Parfums De Coeur. The plaintiffs allege that the products they used contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as phthalates, which are toxic. Furthermore, they claim that while the manufacturers were aware of the health risks associated with using their products, they failed to warn consumers and continued to market the hair relaxers to the public, especially to women of color. According to the motion, at least nine hair relaxer lawsuits are pending nationwide involving claims on behalf of 13 different plaintiffs. It is expected that the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation will decide whether to consolidate the lawsuits in a multidistrict litigation during the upcoming hearing session on January 26 in Miami, Florida.
Jenny Mitchell, a 32-year-old woman from Chicago, filed a lawsuit in the Northern District of Illinois against five hair relaxer manufacturers, including L'Oreal. She alleges her past use of chemical hair strengthening products is the culprit behind her uterine cancer diagnosis, which she received in 2018. As a Black woman, she began using chemical hair relaxers when she was 8 years old, as these products are often marketed to teenagers. The other defendants in this lawsuit are SoftSheen Carson, Dabur, Namaste Laboratories, and Strength of Nature.
A class action lawsuit was filed by Sharon Manier, Dorothy Riles, and Lakeytra Nero against L'Oreal. The women, who allege they experienced severe scalp burns due to using SoftSheen Carson's Optimum Amla Legend hair relaxer, represent themselves and others who came to suffer the same injuries. SoftSheen Carson promotes this product as "the safest and most effective" for consumers, yet according to the lawsuit, the hair relaxer "contains hardly any Amla oil at all" and "the ingredients in the Amla Relaxer are a dangerous mix of irritants and potentially toxic chemicals." The plaintiffs seek $5 million in damages for scalp burns and hair loss.
