Hair Relaxer Lien Resolution
Hair relaxer is a chemical product used primarily by Black and Brown women to make hair lay flat and straight. The chemicals in hair relaxers are meant to temporarily straighten curly hair by breaking down protein bonds; however, some of these chemicals may be endocrine disruptors. New scientific evidence has emerged which suggests that long-term use of hair relaxer products may cause increased rates of ovarian and uterine cancer.
Thousands of lawsuits have been filed all across the United States, claiming product liability and negligence by product manufacturers. Some suits have been combined into MDLs.
