A recent study in the journal Cancer Epidemiology,
Biomarkers & Prevention stated hair relaxers do not cause breast cancer in black women.
Now, these relaxers contain lye and calcium hydroxide. Additionally, manufacturers don’t have to list all of their ingredients because it is a trade secret.
Is this suppose to be satisfying? Sisters are putting chemicals on their scalps that’s penetrating through their pores; and the hair stylist has to wear protective gloves; and the concoction burns your scalp if kept on too long…well, if ain’t causing cancer it’s creating some type of disorder.
Let’s start with damaging the brain cells. And the trade secret ingredients — what are they doing?
One thing for sure, hair relaxers are incarcerating our minds and our pride.
