Can Hair Relaxer Cause Cancer?

Multiple studies in recent years have linked chemical hair relaxers to an increased risk for uterine cancer, breast cancer, endometriosis, and uterine fibroids. Hair relaxers contain as many as 5,000 toxic chemicals including formaldehyde, phthalates, Di-2-ethylhexylphthalate (DEHP), and Bisphenol A.

Hair Relaxer Uterine Cancer Study

A recent study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute [1] found that toxic chemicals used in hair relaxers and hair straighteners may increase the risk of uterine cancer.

For the study, researchers looked at data on nearly 34,000 women between the ages of 35 and 74 who completed questionnaires on their use of hair products, including hair dyes, straighteners, relaxers, or pressing products.

A 10-year follow-up on the incident rate of uterine cancer was conducted, which found that participants who used hair straighteners at least once had the highest rate of uterine cancer compared to any other hair care products.

The study found that women who regularly used chemical hair relaxers were nearly 3 times more likely to have been diagnosed with uterine cancer by the age of 70 compared to women who never used the products.

Hair Dye Breast Cancer Study

A 2019 study published in the International Journal of Cancer [2] found that women who used hair dyes and straightening products faced a significantly increased risk of developing breast cancer.

Researchers collected data from the Sister Study [3], which is a long-term research project involving more than 50,000 participants to analyze how the environment and genes affect the incidence of breast cancer.

Over 8 years, the study found that women who used hair dyes or relaxers at least every 5 to 8 weeks had a 30% increased risk of developing breast cancer. Black women who reported using permanent hair dyes regularly were linked to a 60% increase of breast cancer diagnosis, compared to an 8% increased risk for white women.

First Lawsuit Filed Over Hair Straightener Products Linked to Uterine Cancer

A Missouri woman has filed a lawsuit [4] against L’Oréal, Revlon, and other cosmetic manufacturers alleging that their hair straightening products caused her to develop uterine cancer.

Mitchell claims that she began using hair relaxer products at 8 years old and continued through March 2022. She was diagnosed with uterine cancer in August 2018, and underwent a full hysterectomy a month later, according to the lawsuit.

Mitchell claims that her cancer “was directly and proximately caused by her regular and prolonged exposure to phthalates and other endocrine disrupting chemicals found in Defendants’ hair care products.”
