Hair Relaxer Lawsuit

Multiple endocrine-disrupting chemicals found in many hair relaxer products have been shown to potentially cause uterine cancer.

Why are people suing hair relaxer brands?

In 2022, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI) reported that using hair relaxers could be linked to an increased risk of uterine cancer. Based on the results of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Sister Study, the JNCI found that women who often used hair relaxers were over twice as likely to develop uterine cancer compared to women who didn’t use hair relaxers.

After this report was published, hundreds of lawsuits were filed against many beauty companies, including big-name brands like L’Oréal and Revlon. Plaintiffs claim that these corporations failed to warn customers about the increased risk of uterine cancer associated with their hair relaxer products.
