Recent scientific studies indicate that women who use chemical hair straighteners, relaxers, and similar products may have a higher risk of developing health issues such as uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, uterine fibroids, breast cancer and other conditions.
In October 2022, the National Cancer Institute published a study, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), that found an increased risk of uterine cancer in women who use hair straightening products.
These research findings have triggered lawsuits filed in federal courts against the manufacturers of hair relaxer products.
Previously, legal actions have also been taken against companies whose hair products were potentially related to breast cancer risk, particularly permanent hair dye.
If you or a loved one used hair relaxers or chemical hair straightening products and were subsequently diagnosed with uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, breast cancer, or another related health problem, you may be eligible to file a claim.

Multiple scientific studies have linked endocrine disrupting chemicals found in chemical hair relaxers and hair straightening products to an increased risk of uterine cancer and other health problems.
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.
Published in October 2022, “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.
Scientific studies linking hair straightener products to the risk of developing uterine cancer include:
Research has found that black women tend to suffer at higher rates from uterine cancer compared to white women.
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 and also at much earlier ages.
More research is necessary on the disproportionate uterine cancer rates in black women compared to white women.
Based on results in previous product liability lawsuits, we estimate the settlement amounts for Hair Relaxer Cancer Lawsuits to be significant.
We estimate the average settlement amount per person to be between $100,000 to $1,500,000.
These numbers are purely an estimation based on previous lawsuits and should not be taken as a guarantee of financial compensation.
