NCI Study Finds Probable Connection Between Hair Straightener & Uterine Cancer
A recent National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) report
has shown an increased risk of uterine cancer among individuals that use
chemical relaxers to straighten hair. Individuals that frequently used chemical
relaxers (often defined as 4x per year) were over twice as likely to develop
uterine cancer, as opposed to those who do not use chemical hair relaxers
In addition to uterine cancer, a 2021 study revealed women who frequently use
relaxers are at an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer as well. As with
uterine cancer, they are twice as likely to receive an ovarian cancer diagnosis
se within their lifetime.
Chemical relaxers are used to straighten or relax curly hair by penetrating the
hair cuticle and cortex layers to loosen the natural curl pattern. Treatments are
repeated as needed to maintain the effect, which is now associated with
higher risk of uterine cancer and other serious health conditions.
First Hair Relaxer Claim Filed
Since October 2022, numerous other hair relaxer lawsuits have now been filed.
The first lawsuit filed alleges exposure to phthalates and additional endocrine-
disrupting chemicals in hair relaxers used lead to the development of
endometrial cancer at 28 years of age, requiring a full hysterectomy before age
Brands relevant to the litigation include:
Elevated Risk of Cancer - Chemical Hair Straightener Lawsuit
Hair products are expected to meet the rigorous safety standards required of
cosmetic products to prevent dangerous side effects. Consumers should be
able to trust their hair products are safe for use, and do not present a danger to
their health; these expectations are the grounds on which current hair
straightener lawsuits are founded.
