Hair Straightener Claims and Lawsuits

What Are Hair straighteners?

Hair straighteners, often called hair relaxers, are lotions or cream chemical applications then when applied to the hair make hair smoother. They change the chemical composition of the hair follicle which makes hair easier to manage and style. These products are used by women, and particularly African American women. These products have been manufactured and sold for over 100 years to millions and millions of women.

Why Are Hair Straighteners Dangerous?

In October, 2022 a study was released by the National Institute of Health (NIH) which discovered that hair straighteners can cause uterine cancer in women. This was a very comprehensive, 11-year study that looked at roughly 30,000 women ages 35-74 which revealed that those who use hair relaxers are twice as likely to develop uterine cancer. That science showed that the chemicals found in hair relaxers can alter hormones in women, thus causing cancer. African American women in particular are more at risk because they frequently use the product often, and many times at a very young age.

Here are some of the losses these products can cause:

  • Uterine cancer and uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Breast cancer
Who Are the Claims Against?

These claims are against many potential defendants that both produced and/or distributed these products to the marketplace and include and they include L’Oreal as well as Revlon, as well as against other potential defendants that sold and distributed the following hair relaxer products:

  • Motions
  • Cantu Shea Butter Relaxer
  • Just for Me
  • ORS Olive Oil Hair Relaxer
  • Dark & Lovely
