Numerous actions have been filed over wrongful marketing of hair relaxers linked to uterine cancer. Lieff Cabraser’s Civil Rights and Social Justice Practice Group is investigating the civil rights implications of hair relaxer products and their alleged harm arising in part from the legacy of exclusion of Black people in America and the subjugation of features commonly associated with Black beauty and excellence.
Our suits and others came in the wake of investigation into widespread allegations that certain hair relaxer products have been linked to a doubled risk of uterine cancer in women exposed to the endocrine disruptor chemicals in hair relaxers. Notably, none of the products in question warn women of the link to and risks of cancer or any other health concerns.
If you or a family member have used any of these or other hair relaxer products and have become ill, or have concerns about developing cancer in the future as a result of use of these products, please use the form on this page to contact Lieff Cabraser today about your case and potential recovery.
