L’Oréal Hair Straightener Lawsuit

Defective Product Lawyers

A potential link between L’Oréal hair-straightener 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.
