Chemical hair straightening products are popular among women who want to straighten their curly hair. These products have been around for decades. However, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently informed the public about the risks that chemical hair straighteners cause, leading to several lawsuits being filed. In this article, Kwartler Manus will tell you more about these lawsuits as well as explain how to file a mass tort claim.
About the Chemical Hair Straightener Lawsuits
Many women begin using chemical hair straightening products at a young age before they even know what ingredients are inside the products. At the end of 2022, the NIH published a study with evidence showing a link between chemical hair straighteners and uterine cancer. As a matter of fact, the study stated that women who have used these products are two times more likely to develop uterine cancer than those who have never used any chemical hair straighteners before.
As a result, women started filing lawsuits against various companies such as L’Oreal, Soft Sheen, Strength of Nature, Just for Me, TCB Naturals, and Olive Oil Girls.

Who Can File a Chemical Hair Straightener Lawsuit?
Even though many women have used chemical hair straightening products around the world, not everyone can file a chemical hair straightener lawsuit. There are two main requirements that you must meet in order to successfully file a lawsuit, including the following:
1. You must have used chemical hair straightening products.
2. You must have received a medical diagnosis as a result of using chemical hair straightening products. Some of the most common diagnoses are uterine cancer, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, breast cancer, and ovarian cancer.
You will need to show proof of both requirements. In this case, you may need to show receipts, medical reports, witness statements, doctor testimonies, photos, and more.
