Hair Relaxer

Hair Relaxer Law Suite

Recent media emphasis has focused on the potential link between hair relaxers—powerful chemical mixes used to straighten textured or curly hair—and an elevated risk of cancer. Although these products have been widely used for many years, accumulating data now indicates that prolonged use of them may have negative health effects, including an increased risk of malignancies such uterine, ovarian, breast, and endometrial.

Key ingredients in hair relaxers like sodium hydroxide, ammonium thioglycolate, guanidine carbonate, lithium hydroxide, calcium hydroxide, and potassium thioglycolate work by breaking protein bonds in hair to facilitate straightening. However, frequent and prolonged exposure to these chemicals can lead to scalp irritation, skin burns, and potentially, cancer.

A particular concern surrounding hair relaxers is the possible presence of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen. The exposure to formaldehyde, either through skin absorption or inhalation during application, can pose serious health hazards, including a heightened risk of cancer.

A study conducted by the National Cancer Institute discovered that African American women, frequent users of hair relaxers, are at a higher risk of developing uterine cancer. This group is also more likely to confront long-term health issues, such as permanent infertility and lower fertility rates, due to exposure to the endocrine-disrupting harmful chemicals found in some hair relaxer products.
