African women worldwide spend millions of dollars every year on various hair care products. Unfortunately, many of the products we use contain harmful chemicals that are linked to serious health conditions such as cancer, reproductive impairment, heart and mental problems among many other health issues.
Below is a research paper published by the Environmental Research (2018), titled ‘Measurement of endocrine and asthma-associated chemicals in hair used by black women’. They concluded from the result that hair care products used by Black women and children contained multiple chemicals associated with endocrine disruption and asthma.
