Dangers Of Using Hair Relaxing Chemical

Currently lawyers are investigating hair relaxer lawsuits against L’Oréal and other manufacturers who failed to warn about uterine cancer, ovarian cancer and other health risks from hair relaxer products.

The product liability lawyers at Serna & Associates PLLC are investigating cases for individuals who have been diagnosed with uterine cancer, ovarian cancer after regular or prolonged exposure to hair relaxer products, which have been found to contain several well-documented carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting chemicals associated with the diagnosis of certain cancers and conditions.

For years, a growing body of medical research has been published by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and peer reviewed medical journals, raising concerns about the side effects of hair relaxer products. The studies have identified several toxic chemicals frequently used in hair relaxers that may cause cancer, reproductive complications and developmental issues.

Hair Relaxer Facts:

2022 Study: Hair Relaxers Increase Uterine Cancer Risks

A study performed by researchers from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in October 2022, warning that ingredients used in hair relaxers may cause uterine cancer

NIEHS researchers reviewed data on nearly 34,000 women in the United States between the ages of 35 and 74 who completed questionnaires on their use of multiple hair products, including hair dyes, straighteners, relaxers, or pressing products.

A 10 year follow-up on the incident rate of uterine cancer diagnosis was performed, finding participants who used straightening products at least once had the highest rate of uterine cancer diagnosis compared to any other hair products involved in the study.

The study revealed women who routinely used hair relaxer chemical products were nearly 3x more likely to have developed uterine cancer by the age of 70 when compared to women who never used chemical relaxer products.

African American women frequently using hair relaxer products had the highest rate of developing uterine cancer, making up only 7.4% of study participants, but accounted for 59.9% of those reporting use of the chemical relaxers.

2019 Study: Hair Relaxers Increase Breast Cancer Risk by 30%

Another study performed by researchers at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) was published in the International Journal of Cancer (IJC) in 2019, indicating women using straightening products for their hair face a significantly increased risk of developing breast cancer.

Researchers collected data from the Sister Study, which is a long-term research project pioneered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which involves over 50,000 participants to study how the environment and genes affect women’s chances of getting breast cancer.

Over an eight year period, researchers reported that women who used hair relaxers at least every five to eight weeks, had a 30% increased risk of developing breast cancer. African American women who reported using permanent hair dyes regularly were associated with a 60% increase of breast cancer diagnosis, compared to an 8% increased risk for Caucasian women.

2017 Study: African American Women Hair Relaxers Breast Cancer Risks

A study performed by researchers from the Rutgers Cancer Institute was published in the medical journal Carcinogenesis in 2017, finding the use of chemical straighteners and hair relaxers increased breast cancer risks by 74% among white women. The authors concluded the study stating;

“These novel findings provide support a relationship between the use of some hair products and breast cancer,” and “Further examinations of hair products as important exposures contributing to breast cancer carcinogenesis are necessary”.

Based on the currently available science we are not moving forward with breast cancer claims at this time. However, we are continuing to monitor the evolving studies and will post any updated information on our page about hair relaxers and breast cancer side effects.
