National Institute of Health Study On Hair Relaxer Products

Recently, a study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has revealed that frequent use of certain hair straightening products may be associated with an increased risk of developing uterine cancer. This is concerning news for anyone who uses these products and should not be taken lightly. 

The research examined 33,497 women in the United States over 11 years. During this time, 378 cases of uterine cancer were diagnosed. It was found that 1.64% of women who never used hair straighteners had an estimated risk of uterine cancer by age 70; however, for frequent users, that risk went up to 4.05%.  

This finding is concerning because chemical straighteners have been used by many people for many years without any knowledge or suspicion about potential risks. 

The researchers also noted that the risk was significantly higher for Black women due to their higher prevalence of use. This finding is consistent with prior studies which have shown that hair treatments such as relaxers and straighteners can increase the risk of hormone-related cancer in women.

The researchers did not collect information on brands or ingredients used but suggested that parabens, bisphenol A, metals, and formaldehyde could be contributing factors due to increased absorption through the scalp from burns and lesions caused by the straighteners.

Recovering Compensation in a Hair Relaxer Case

When filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer or distributor of a product like hair relaxers, there are several types of compensation that may be available 

These can include medical bills, lost wages due to missed workdays during treatment or recovery periods, pain and suffering damages for physical pain caused by the product, emotional distress damages for psychological trauma caused by the diagnosis, and wrongful death damages if someone close passed away due to their use of the product.
