Chemical Hair-Straightening Products Put Women At A Higher Risk Of Uterine Cancer

A major study by the National Institutes of Health revealed that frequent use of chemical hair-straightening products could put women at a higher risk of developing uterine cancer than those who did not.

The decade-long study tracked 33,497 the use of hair dyes, straighteners, relaxers, or pressing products by women in the United States between the ages of 35 and 74.

About 60% of the participants self-identified as Black women in the study, which was published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

The study found several chemicals in straighteners—including parabens, bisphenol A, metals, and formaldehyde—might contribute to the increased uterine cancer risk observed.

Chemical exposure from hair product use, especially straighteners,  could be more concerning than other personal care products due to increased absorption through the scalp which may be exacerbated by burns and lesions caused by straighteners.
