The Link Between Hair Straightening Products and Cancer

Lawsuits concerning chemical hair straighteners claim that regular and prolonged exposure to phthalates and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals in the products directly and proximately caused uterine cancer.

Certain compounds within hair straighteners—such as formaldehyde, phthalates, parabens, bisphenol-A, and metals—have been linked to cancers, and large-scale research incorporating medical data from more than 30,000 women linked the use of hair straighteners with elevated risks of breast and ovarian cancer.
