Hair Relaxer Cancer Claims

Hair relaxers are beauty industry products that use chemicals to straighten hair by breaking down cell bonds deep within the hair strand. Relaxer products are available nationwide at hair salons and at grocery, convenience, beauty supply, and drug stores, although they are primarily used in the African-American community. Societal pressures have urged or even required Black women to relax their hair to conform to historically European beauty standards and for decades, chemical hair relaxer companies have successfully marketed their dangerous products to Black women and children.

The hair relaxer industry has a duty to provide safe products to consumers and there are significant studies that indicate they failed in that duty.  Women who used relaxer products and were later diagnosed with uterine cancer and/or ovarian cancer have claims against companies and corporate entities involved in the development, marketing, and sale of these chemical hair products. These lawsuits are just the beginning of important efforts to hold corporations accountable and seek justice for women harmed by relaxer products and their families. 

Dangerous hair relaxer products include but are not limited to products by brands like Motions, Dark & Lovely, Soft & Beautiful, Optimum Care, Creme of Nature, Just for Me, Carson Soft Sheen, and Olive Oil. At-home products and salon-use products both qualify. 

If you or a loved one has used hair relaxers and developed uterine cancer or ovarian cancer, you may be entitled to financial compensation. To learn more, please complete our free, no-obligation “Need Help?” form below.
