You may be eligible to file a claim if you or a loved one used chemical hair straighteners, hair relaxers, or other similar hair products, and subsequently were diagnosed with uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, breast cancer, or other health conditions.

Recent studies have found that the use of hair straightening chemicals may double the risk of developing uterine cancer.
The National Institute Of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), a division of the National Cancer Institute, conducted a health study for more than a decade called the “Sister Study“, which originally looked at risk factors for breast cancer.
The October 2022 study “Hair straightening chemicals associated with higher uterine cancer risk” found that women who reported frequent use of hair straightening products, defined as more than four times in the previous year, were more than twice as likely to go on to develop uterine cancer compared to those who did not use the products.
According to the Resilient Sisterhood Project, a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness on the reproductive health of black women, black women are significantly more likely than white women to have advanced stages of uterine cancer and to have more aggressive tumor types (clear cell, serous, high-grade endometrioid, and malignant mixed Mullerian tumors).
The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology conducted a study on the mortality rates of endometrial cancer, finding an increased risk for black women to suffer from aggressive forms of uterine cancer.
Their study identifies two reasons for this risk:
Black women use chemical hair straighteners and hair relaxers at much higher rates than white women, also beginning use of chemical hair straightening products at a young age.
If you or a loved one used hair straightening products and subsequently developed a medical condition that required a hysterectomy, you may be eligible to file a claim.
