Hair Straightening Chemicals Linked to Uterine Cancer

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has reported that some hair relaxer manufacturers and straightening chemicals are associated with higher uterine cancer risk. Data from 33,497 women in the United States ages 35-75 in the Sister Study, led by NIH organization the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), shows that women who frequently use chemical hair straighteners or relaxers are more than twice as likely to develop uterine cancer by the age of 70 than those who don’t use them.

Black and Latina Women at Higher Risk

Due to the prevalence of hair relaxer use by Latina and African American women, they may be at higher risk to develop uterine cancer. According to the Sister Study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, approximately 60% of the participants, self-identified Black women, reported using straighteners in the previous year.

“Because Black women use hair straightening or relaxer products more frequently and tend to initiate use at earlier ages than other races and ethnicities, these findings may be even more relevant for them,” said Che-Jung Chang, Ph.D., an author on the Sister Study and a research fellow in the NIEHS Epidemiology Branch.

Have You Used These Products and Been Diagnosed with Cancer?

Hair straightening products and relaxers are available from large retailers and beauty stores. Hair relaxer products manufactured with chemicals such as parabens, bisphenol A, metals, and formaldehyde, indicated in the Sister Study as potentially contributing to the increased uterine cancer risk observed, may include:
