Potential Link Found Between Uterine Cancer and Hair Straightening Chemicals
The appearance of hair, whether straight or curly, is dependent upon the shape of the hair follicle, and that appearance is then held by disulfide bonds. Chemical hair straighteners (also known as relaxers) use a variety of chemicals to break down those disulfide bonds, resulting in a straight or “relaxed” look.
A potential link found between uterine cancer and hair straightening chemicals calls the safety of these products into question. If you believe that your cancer diagnosis may have been the result of using a dangerous product that you believed to be safe, we encourage you to contact Bey & Associates as soon as possible. Our compassionate attorneys are ready to discuss what happened to you, and we’ll make sure you understand all the legal options at your disposal.
