Hair Products that Contain Cancer Causing Chemicals

In 2022, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (N.I.E.H.S.) published findings of their Sister Study, including data from over 33,000 women who were tracked for nearly 11 years.

Within that time frame, 378 women were diagnosed with uterine cancer. Those who used hair straighteners over 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.

Another study, published by Oxford University, concluded that women who used lye-based relaxers had around a 30 percent increased risk of developing breast cancer.

Products Cause Scalp Burns and Lesions Increasing Exposure to Cancer Causing Compounds

Hair-straightening products have been marketed to consumers, mostly women of color, since the early 20th century. These products use harsh substances such as lye to relax curls chemically.

The ingredients can cause chemical burns and scalp lesions, increasing users' exposure to cancer-causing chemical compounds that are also used in these products.

In some studies, as many as 90% of Black women report using straighteners and relaxers. The global market for hair-straightening products generated some $718 million in sales in 2021.
