One of the top-selling brands of chemical hair relaxers is ORS Olive Oil Hair Relaxer, manufactured by the Chicago-based cosmetics company, Namaste, LLC. ORS Olive Oil is a hair straightener used mostly by women of color to make their hair smooth and flat. These chemical hair relaxers contain strong chemicals that break down the protein structure of the hair follicles, changing the hair’s natural texture. Many African American women regularly use ORS Olive Oil hair relaxers, typically every 6-8 weeks. ORS stands for “Organic Root Stimulator,” and the ORS Olive Oil hair relaxer products are some of the most popular hair care products used by women of color. Toxic hair relaxer lawsuits are now being filed against Namaste LLC and other cosmetics companies by women who used their products and developed uterine cancer or ovarian cancer.

Risk of uterine cancer for women who used ORS Olive Oil chemical hair relaxers

Although ORS Olive Oil hair relaxers are marketed as “no-lye” hair straightening products, they still contain a mixture of strong chemicals. The hair relaxers’ components include chemicals classified as EDCs (endocrine-disrupting chemicals) which are known to disturb the normal functioning of the endocrine system. Long-term, regular exposure to EDCs from chemical hair relaxers interferes with hormone production, leading to the development of hormone-sensitive ailments such as uterine and ovarian cancer.

ORS Olive Oil toxic hair relaxer lawsuits

In October 2022, the National Institutes of Health published the initial results of a major clinical study that looked at the potential health consequences of the chemicals in hair straightening products. The groundbreaking results of the study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, quickly prompted several product liability lawsuits against Namaste and other cosmetics companies.

Plaintiffs claim that their long-term, regular use of ORS Olive Oil hair relaxers led to severe health conditions, including uterine cancer. According to the allegations, Namaste marketed their hair relaxer products as safe without warning about cancer risks.
