One of the top-selling chemical hair relaxer brands is Motions, manufactured by Strength of Nature Global, LLC. The cosmetics company's chemical hair relaxers are primarily used by women of color to flatten and straighten their coily or curly hair. Chemical hair relaxers dismantle the hair's protein structure and change its natural texture. Motions hair relaxers need to be re-applied every few months as the hair grows out. Women who sued Strength of Nature Global, LLC, accuse the company of marketing their chemical hair relaxers as safe when they should have known that the hair care products contain chemicals harmful to human health.
