L’Oréal Hair Straightener Lawsuit

L’Oréal Hair Straightener Lawsuit

Defective Product Lawyers

A potential link between L’Oréal hair-straightening products and uterine cancer has been discovered thanks to the findings of a study from the National Institutes of Health published in October 2022; it could lead to a number of lawsuits against the well-known and extremely popular cosmetics company.

The findings were released the same month that an individual who was diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2018 claimed in a lawsuit that she has used L’Oreal’s products since 2000.

The plaintiff claimed in her complaint that her uterine cancer diagnosis was “directly and proximately caused” by her “regular and prolonged exposure to phthalates and other endocrine disrupting chemicals” allegedly found in L’Oréal’s hair straightening products.

Indeed, in the NIH study, researchers found that women who reported frequent use of hair straightening products – noted as more than four times in the previous year – were more than twice as likely to later develop uterine cancer compared to those who did not use the products.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with uterine cancer after using hair straighteners or relaxers, particularly products from L’Oréal, please don’t hesitate to contact our office to determine your possible legal options.

If the diagnosis was made after a prolonged period of using a different brand of hair straightener products, we urge you to still consider contacting the team at Phillips Law Group for a free consultation. There are no upfront fees and don’t pay unless we take on your case and win.

Phillips Law Group is passionate about seeking justice for those who’ve been harmed. Please contact us today if you suspect you or a loved one developed uterine cancer as a result of the use of hair straightener products over an extended period of time.

    What Does the Study Say?

    The National Institutes of Health study noted that 33,497 U.S. women ages 35-74 participated in the Sister Study, which was led by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of NIH, and sought to identify risk factors for breast cancer and other health conditions.

    The women were followed for almost 11 years and during that time 378 uterine cancer cases were diagnosed. Sadly, researchers found that women who reported regular use of hair straightening products – defined for the study as more than four times in the previous year – were more than twice as likely to go on to develop uterine cancer when compared to those who didn’t use the products.

    Additionally, approximately 60 percent of the participants who reported using straighteners in the past year self-identified as Black women, according to the study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

    What Health Problems Do L’Oréal Hair-Straightening Products Cause?

    The lawsuit and recent studies found a potential link between the use of L’Oréal hair-straightening products and uterine cancer. There is also some evidence that the use of hair-straightening products could allegedly lead to other health problems such as ovarian or cervical cancers, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, or breast cancer.
