Action Beauty Supply - Toxic hair relaxers

The Maryland-based Action Beauty Supply manufactures and sells cosmetic products, including chemical hair straighteners. Kenneth Williams, founder and owner of the beauty company, started his business selling cosmetic products from the back of his car. Today Action Beauty Supply is one of our country's largest and most successful African-American-owned businesses.

The company’s hair relaxers are enriched with natural ingredients, such as Aloe Vera and Shea Butter, but also contain a mix of toxic substances with endocrine-disruptive effects, known as EDCs (endocrine-disrupting chemicals).

According to a recent NIH study, these chemical compounds that might lurk in hair relaxers can interfere with the endocrine system's functioning and lead to hormone-sensitive health conditions. Chemical hair relaxers' ingredients include parabens, phthalates, cadmium and bisphenol-A, all of them known to have harmful effects on human health.

Chemical hair relaxers marketed to Black women

Since Black women have naturally curly hair, many use chemical hair relaxers for decades to straighten their hair. Beauty companies are well aware of this, so they heavily market their hair relaxer products for Black women and Action Beauty Supply is no different.

Many of these women started to use chemical relaxers as teenagers or even children, which significantly increases their risk of developing hormone-sensitive cancer:
