Did you meet members of the Omega Daughter, LLC team at a Health or Hair Expo, or did you hear about the lawsuits against hair relaxer companies and want more information? If you answered yes to any one of those questions, you are at the right place!
Omega Daughter, LLC, is honored to have partnered with Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP (“LCHB” or “Lieff Cabraser”), and the Equal Justice Society to educate as many people as possible in the Southeastern United States about the health risks of hair relaxer products. For the past few months and continuing throughout the remainder of 2023, Omega Daughter, LLC has attended various hair and health expos educating the participants about the lawsuit. One cherished item designed with help from Omega Daughter, LLC included in the “swag” bags are “church fans” reminiscent of what Judge Jones used during her childhood in the church with her Grandparents. Church fans have a special history in Black churches because they provide both educational information and cooling ability.
By way of background, Lieff Cabraser is a national injury law firm partnered with the Equal Justice Society and has filed a federal injury lawsuit against L'Oreal, Softsheen, Dermoviva, and others. The lawsuit alleges the defendants engaged in negligent, willful, and wrongful conduct in the design and sale of the relevant products. These allegations are based on Lieff Cabraser’s investigation as well as widespread reports about uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, and endometrial cancer relating to the use of hair relaxer products. Lieff Cabraser, Equal Justice Society, and Omega Daughter, LLC acknowledge the deep and painful history of racism in relation to the stigmatization of natural hair.
If you are or were a regular user of hair relaxers, the presence of any of the following symptoms may indicate signs of uterine or ovarian cancer:
• Postmenopausal bleeding
• Presence of a lump or mass
• Pelvic discomfort
• Pain during vaginal intercourse
If you answered "yes" to any of these symptoms, we urge you to speak with a health provider at your earliest convenience. If you do not have insurance, your healthcare provider may know about free or very low-cost healthcare programs that may be available.
It's completely understandable that you may have reservations about seeking medical help, especially if you've had negative experiences in the past, or if financial constraints make accessing healthcare seem out of reach. Doctors, like all people, are not infallible, and the healthcare system often falls short in meeting the needs of those it is supposed to serve. But when it comes to your health, especially in light of the new information linking hair relaxers to serious health conditions like ovarian and uterine cancer, it's crucial to prioritize your wellbeing despite past experiences or current fears.

Note from CEO Judge Jones: As a Black woman who grew up using “creamy crack,” I understand using relaxers in the past and continuing to use them today. I am in no way judging that choice. I do, however, ask you to please share this information with your mother, grandmothers, daughters, nieces, cousins, aunties, and anyone you know whose health may already have been adversely impacted by the use of hair relaxers. Black health is a human right!
