SoftSheen-Carson, a L'Oréal subsidiary, introduced the hair relaxing product Optimum Amla Legend No-Mix, No-Lye Relaxer in 2013. Advertising for this product, aimed at black women, claimed that it was nourishing and would rejuvenate hair. However, many women now allege that the hair relaxing product damaged their hair and forced them to wear wigs to cover up the damage. In some cases, women claim that the hair product caused significant hair loss. SoftSheen-Carson's relaxing product is widely available at resellers around the country, including CVS, Wal-Mart and Walgreens, meaning thousands of women could potentially be affected.
The lawsuit against L'Oréal alleges the company falsely promoted their product as a safe alternative to lye-based hair relaxers, using celebrity endorsements like Real Housewives of Atlanta's Cynthia Bailey, Black-ish's Tracee Ellis Ross, and Michelle Obama's hairstylist, Johnny Wright. L'Oréal claims that the packaging has numerous safety warnings cautioning consumers from putting the hair product near their scalp. If you were harmed by this product, joining the L'Oréal lawsuit may help you get compensated for your injuries.
What problems does using the hair relaxer cause?
Plaintiffs in the recent case against L'Oréal claim that the hair product causes the following problems:
