Using Chemical Hair Relaxers can result in an increased risk of developing Uterine Cancer.

What Kind of Cancer?

The National Institute of Health (NIH) recently concluded the use of chemical hair relaxers can result in an increased risk of developing:

  • Uterine Cancer
  • Endometrial Cancer

Who is at risk?

Lasting more than ten years, the study found that when women who reported using these chemical hair straighteners more than four times in the previous year, they were more than twice as likely to develop uterine cancer than when compared to women who did not use chemical hair straighteners or relaxers. 

Women who have used these hair straightening products are at a higher risk for developing uterine cancer due to carcinogenic and hormone-disrupting chemicals like phthalates and formaldehyde.  Frequent exposure to these chemicals contributes to increased cancer risks. If you or a loved one have used chemical hair relaxer products and were later diagnosed with uterine cancer or endometrial cancer, you may be eligible to pursue compensation.

Do I have a claim?

Frequent exposure to these chemicals contributes to increased cancer risks. If you or a loved one have used chemical hair relaxer products and were later diagnosed with uterine cancer or endometrial cancer, you may be eligible to pursue compensation.
