Lawsuits and claims arising from the use of chemical hair relaxers and straighteners involve those against the manufacturers of chemical hair relaxers and straightening products alleging that exposure to certain chemicals in the products can cause cancer. These products contain chemicals that can cause hair damage, chemical burns, and other health problems such as uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, and endometrial cancer. Some individuals and families affected by cancer have filed lawsuits alleging that exposure to the chemicals in hair relaxers caused their cancer. These lawsuits are seeking compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering and in some cases wrongful death.
