Ovarian & Uterine Cancers May Develop From Hair Relaxers
Hair relaxer treatments are beautiful—but they can be deadly.
The connection is clear: Those who use hair relaxers over a span of years have a greater potential to develop ovarian and uterine cancers than those who don’t.
Hair relaxers are a major influence in American culture, used across the country primarily by millions of Black, Brown, and multicultural women every day.
In fact, it is estimated that 200 million Americans use these products each year.
What many don’t realize is that these hair straighteners and relaxers contain chemicals that have been linked to serious health problems, including:
- The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that “the side effects of hair relaxers are exacerbated by improper use,” such as careless and untimed applications.
- The Natural Hair website reveals that “relaxers not only break the bonds in your naturally curly hair, but they also have the potential to cause additional complications.”
