The Link Between Hair Relaxers and Cancer

We Don’t Settle for Less. Neither Should You.™

A cancer diagnosis is a scary time in anyone’s life, as it is accompanied by uncertainty, worry, and a mountain of medical bills. The idea that the cause of your illness could be a product that was advertised and marketed as a safe and trustworthy hair treatment is outrageous. That is why hair relaxer cancer lawsuits are so important.

As women around the country hold these major companies and corporations accountable for their wrongdoing, Montlick lawyers are ready to fight for you, too.

If you or a loved one has used chemical hair relaxers or chemical hair straighteners, and believe you developed cancer as a result, we would like to see if we can help you. You could be entitled to valuable compensation, including compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

Want lawyers that care about you, put in the extra effort, and get the results you deserve? Then look no further because Montlick has your back.When I was taking an Uber to see my girlfriend back in 2021, our car was flipped upside down by a unregistered driver. The difference between life and death was 15 feet of guard rail. We all thankfully survived, but the car was totaled and I'm still left with injuries from my whiplash. The cops didn't care because they are overworked/undervalued, the EMTs didn't care because we were not in critical condition, insurance companies were doing everything in their power not to pay out (even though we were the victims) and onlookers moved on without haste.When I called Montlick on a Sunday, he picked up right away and got us the support we needed. They treated me with dignity and respect. Without that support, my Uber driver would not have been able to support his kids and get a new car. They got us results without question. If you're hesitating to sign up with Montlick because of the bad reviews, then I would consider giving them a call to at least hear their perspective and see how they can help you. They are some of the nicest people around (and I don't usually say that about lawyers haha).If you ever become the victim of an accident, then you should call Montlick immediately. They get results and they care about you/your case.
Hi I would like to thank Scott Patterson for everything for helping me with my case. He is a nice and terrific guy.
Cate Powell and her team did excellent job at getting me the help I needed. They referred me to a great medical facility for treatment. Any questions I had was met with a quick response and I was always up to date on what was happening. They made the process as easy as possible for me. I would highly recommend using Cate Powell with montlick and associates.

Hello Jason, thank you for your time today. Although we are not processing a case, you took the time to explain the information, give clear examples and showed compassion. This tells me there are people who believe in great service and do what they say they're going to do. I wish you all the best. :)- Gina
When it comes to personal injuries being handled with upmost quality care, professionalism and determination to resolve all legal woes quickly and successfully. I'll be the first in a very long line of satisfied customers to say that Monica Pearson, (one of Atlanta's great Black female broadcast journalists and the first, former WSB-TV evening anchor at Channel 2 Action News) who I truly admire was right on the money (meaning trustworthy) for informing all victims of negligence to seek legal help from a proven law firm such as Montlick & Associates, who I call the best of the best LEGAL STRONG ARMS in the personal injury business!I'm a client of this wonderful establishment who truly took care of all my needs relating to my unfortunate accident, all due to a distracted driver who paid dearly for his poor driving ability.In saying that, I must recognize two important people at the firm. One is legal assistant Amber Starks (a marvelous paralegal) who kept my spirit up while I dealt with my personal recovery. Amber Starks is fantastic person to know, and second is my attorney, the incredible Nick Vocino. I call him a "legal eagle battling ram" for the underdog against vicious insurance companies. He's terrific! Nick "The Battle Ram" Vocino is "no joke" when it comes to him protecting his clients, he's fabulous! And last but also first is the entire staff at Montlick, who made me feel like one of their family members, just splendid! Alright people, I stated I was recognizing two, but I ended up acknowledging four. Monica Pearson, Amber Starks, Nick Vocino and the staff at Montlick; thank you for all that you have done and still do. All of you have earned my respect and deserve a round of applause from your clients. Ladies & gentlemen, I appreciate you for a job well done. Many blessings I send to you.
When I was injured in an automobile accident I called Motlick Personal Injury Law Firm. Attorney Cate Powell and her team took on my case and won. I am thankful that I knew which law firm to call. If you are injured in an accident, call Motlick!
This review is to you to my two favorite attorneys Ellis Cliu and Ben Copeland at Montlick & Montlick. I express my most sincere thanks for the most professional representation. I am grateful for your support. You have stuck by me through the year in dealing with this very stressful case.I admire your composure, work ethic and most of all your excellent representation. I appreciate you guys more than you will ever know. If anyone of you ever needs an attorney 👀look no further. These 2 are your guys.👏👏🤝🏆🏆🏆⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Link Between Hair Relaxers and Cancer

The National Institutes of Health recently released findings from a study that show a link between the use of chemical hair relaxers to straighten naturally curly hair and increased risk of certain cancers.

For example, women who reported using chemical hair relaxers “frequently”–defined in the study by four or more uses per year–more than doubled their chances of developing uterine cancer.

Many popular brands of chemical straighteners, relaxers and other hair smoothing products contain potentially unsafe chemicals such as parabens, bisphenol A, metals, and formaldehyde. The prolonged exposure of these harmful chemicals to a person’s scalp may increase risk of cancer.

At Montlick, we handle your case with:

If you or a loved one have used any of the following products and received a diagnosis of uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, or ovarian cancer, speak with an attorney of your legal options.

  • Just for Me TM(L’Oreal)
  • Dark and Lovely
  • Soft & Beautiful

Or any other lye or no-lye hair relaxers.

While the alarming findings of the NIH study are relevant to any woman, regardless of race or ethnicity, who has ever used any type of chemical hair straightening, perming or smoothing products, the study’s author notes that the findings might be especially relevant to Black women, because “Black women use hair straightening or relaxer products more frequently and tend to initiate use at earlier ages than other races and ethnicities.”

While Black women made up only 7% of the study’s participants, they accounted for nearly 60% of those who reported using chemical hair straightening products in the last year, whether professionally or at home. Additionally, a 2019 study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology reported that the rate of uterine cancer has been rising among Black women in recent years.
