Here is some scary news:
According to an article in Black Like Moi, a new study in the American Journal of Epidemiology this week linked hair relaxers to uterine fibroids, as well as early puberty in young girls.
According to the study, scientists followed more than 23,000 pre-menopausal Black American women from 1997 to 2009 and found that the two- to three-times higher rate of fibroids among black women may be linked to chemical exposure through scalp lesions and burns resulting from relaxers.
I've been convinced for some time that using relaxers is like voluntarily taking poison.
But that's my personal fashion project.
If I had my way, I'd make relaxers illegal, but in my world it would also be against the law for brown-skinned women to have flaxen/blond hair.
