Chemical Hair Straightener Cancer Lawsuit Attorneys

Chemical Hair Products Linked to Uterine Cancer

Recently, alarming research has shown a strong link between chemical hair straightener products made by many different product manufacturers and uterine cancer, as well as a few other forms of cancer. It is believed that the products were never properly tested for risks of long-term use. If the product makers did know about the cancer risks of these hair products, then consumers were never warned. In either situation, the product manufacturers could be liable for any harm and losses suffered by their consumers.

Golomb Legal is a nationwide leader for product liability and consumer class action lawsuits, including those involving unsafe hair care products. We are currently investigating claims, news reports, and studies about the link between chemical hair straighteners and uterine cancer. If you were diagnosed with cancer and used a chemical hair straightening product for a year or longer, then you could have a claim for compensation. We would like to hear from you to see if we can help.

Do Chemical Straighteners Cause Cancer?

Studies are being conducted to determine if chemical hair straightener products can cause uterine cancer. Initial results have found a statistically significant association between product use and cancer rates.

One study involved nearly 34,000 female participants because women use chemical hair straighteners far more often than men. Also, the majority of the participants in the study were women who self-identified as Black. Based on sales statistics, Black women are more likely than other female demographics to buy and use chemical hair straighteners. The information found in that study pointed toward a more-than-likely connection between the hair products and cancer.

The study made the following conclusions:

  • Women had a 1.6% risk of uterine cancer by age 70 if they did not use chemical hair straighteners.
  • Women had approximately a 4% risk of uterine cancer by age 70 if they did use chemical hair straighteners.
  • Women who used chemical hair straighteners appeared to be more likely to be diagnosed with uterine cancer the longer that they used those products.

This information shows that chemical hair straightener use could more than double a woman’s risk of uterine cancer. Although more research is being conducted, this result is already significant. Women who have used these products and were diagnosed with cancer should start considering how to take legal action now.

Two important details about chemical hair straightener lawsuits are:

  1. Eligibility: We are still determining who will be eligible to file a lawsuit or join a class action lawsuit against chemical hair straightener product manufacturers. Based on similar class actions for other products that have been linked to cancer, it might be safe to assume that eligible claimants will have used chemical hair straighteners for at least one year and were diagnosed with a cancer specifically identified in relevant studies like uterine cancer.
  2. Compensation: When considering compensation for chemical hair straightener cancer lawsuits, an official type or amount might be a far way off. Yet we can assume based on other product liability cases that claimants will be owed fair damages that reflect their medical costs, pain, suffering, and shortened life expectancies.
