Chemical Hair Straightener Linked to Uterine Cancer
According to a new study led by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, using chemical hair straightening or relaxer products has been shown to double the risk of uterine cancer in women. Women who used chemical hair straightening or relaxer products frequently may have twice the risk of developing uterine cancer compared to those who didn't use the products.
The estimation, according to the study was that 1.64% of women who had never used hair straighteners would go on to develop uterine cancer by the age of 70. However, for frequent users, that risk went up more than double to 4.05% of women had had frequently using hair straighteners developing uterine cancer by the age of 70.
Using chemical hair straightening or relaxer products has also been shown to double the risk of endometriosis, fibroids, as well as ovarian or ovarian cancer in women. It may be prudent for women who frequently use chemical hair straightening or relaxer products to consider reducing their usage or switching to alternative hair styling methods. Women should also speak with their healthcare provider about any concerns they may have regarding their risk of developing uterine cancer.
What Can I Get?

• When your legal team and the defendant(s) can agree to an amount of compensation for your injuries, it's known as a hair straightener settlement.
