How Are Uterine and Ovarian Cancer Linked to Hair Relaxers?

Studies linking cancer to the use of hair relaxer products suggested that certain chemicals found in hair straighteners, such as parabens, bisphenol A, metals, and formaldehyde, may increase the risk of developing uterine cancer. Furthermore, the scalp may absorb these chemicals more readily when hair is straightened, which could exacerbate the risk of cancer. These dangerous chemicals include formaldehyde, formaldehyde-releasing chemicals, oxidized para-phenylenediamine, 4-aminobiphenyl, among others. However, these products are not labeled with warnings about the potential risk of cancer.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with uterine or ovarian cancer at the age of 70 or under, and have limited confounding factors such as smoking, personal or family history of cancer, hormone replacement therapy, or genetic factors, you may have a case.

Can I Still Have a Case If I Discontinued Use of Hair Relaxers Before My Diagnosis?
