What is a Hair Relaxer?

A hair relaxer is a hair product used to chemically straighten hair by temporarily altering tight curl patterns. Historically, hair product companies have heavily marketed hair relaxers to Black communities. As a result, Black women have been inordinately impacted by unsafe hair relaxer products when compared to other consumer demographics.

Hair relaxer brands that have been implicated in cancer lawsuits include but aren’t limited to:

  • L’Oreal
  • Dark & Lovely
  • Olive Oil
  • Carson Soft Sheen

What Makes Some Hair Relaxers Dangerous?

Research has been released recently that points to the hazardous nature of phthalates, a main chemical component in hair relaxers.

Phthalates have been linked too various serious illnesses, such as:

  • Uterine cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Fertility issues
  • Asthma
  • Developmental issues
  • Higher risk of obesity

Hair relaxers are believed to significantly increase the risk of phthalate-related illnesses due to the need to repeatedly use them. Most people who use chemical hair straighteners must apply the product every four to six weeks, which repeatedly exposes them to phthalates. At this time, the most prominent illness related to frequent hair relaxer use is uterine cancer.
