NIH Study 2023 Update:
Hair Straightening Chemicals Linked to Uterine Cancer

A recent study conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has shed light on a concerning correlation between frequent use of chemical hair straightening or relaxer products and an increased risk of uterine cancer. The study revealed that women who utilized these products more than four times within the past year may face a twofold higher likelihood of developing uterine cancer compared to those who refrained from using such products.

Although uterine cancer represents a modest proportion (3%) of annual cancer diagnoses, its incidence has been on the rise, particularly among Black women. In 2022, an estimated 65,950 new cases of uterine cancer were reported. Notably, around 60% of the participants in the study who reported using hair straighteners were identified as Black women.

Che-Jung Chang, Ph.D., a contributor to the study, emphasized the significance of these findings for Black women, citing their greater frequency of use and earlier initiation of hair straightening products compared to other racial and ethnic groups.

Historically, hair straightening and relaxer products have been marketed predominantly to communities of color, perpetuating an unbalanced Eurocentric standard of beauty. This marketing strategy has contributed to the broader issue at hand.

Sokolove Law acknowledges the profound distress and adversity that individuals endure when confronted with injuries and injustices. Our established history of holding accountable those responsible for such suffering is a testament to our commitment to seeking justice.

Legal actions have already been initiated against manufacturers, including L’Oréal, and other producers of hair straightening products. If you or a loved one have received a diagnosis of uterine cancer, there is an opportunity for you to take proactive measures and pursue justice.
