Don’t Relax on Your Fibroids
Your hair relaxer is most probably feeding your Fibroids, Cysts, PCOS, Endometriosis and Yeast Infections. Relaxers are used by millions of US black women, and often for long periods of time. These hair relaxers are notorious in causing burns and lesions in the scalp, facilitating the entry of hair relaxer chemicals into the body. These products often contain endocrine disrupting chemical compounds (EDCs), such as phthalates. Phthalates are well known xenoestrogens, meaning they have a profound and devastating estrogenic effect on the body. Phthalates are not required to be listed separately as ingredients and are often reported under the term “fragrances” or “perfume”. In fact, makeup and cosmetics are not subject to regulation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), therefore a complete list of ingredients is not mandatory. However, because the vast majority of hair relaxers list “fragrance” as an ingredient, and 100% of popular fragrances tested in a 2002 study were found to contain phthalates, most hair relaxers likely contain these chemicals. Many hair relaxer products actually directly list phthalates within their ingredients. Phthalates from cosmetic products can be absorbed by the skin or inhaled, and they have been proven to have adverse estrogenic effects in cell models and experimental animals.

A few of the vast popular products containing xenoestrogens include: Placenta Shampoo; Queen Helene Placenta Cream Hair Conditioner; Placenta Revitalizing Shampoo; Perm Repair with Placenta; Proline Perm Repair with placenta; Hormone Hair Food Jojoba Oil; Triple Action Super Grow; Supreme Vita-Gro; Luster’s Sur Glo Hormone; B & B Super Gro; Lekair Natural Super Glo; Lekair Hormone Hair Treatment with Vitamin E; Isoplus; The Great Black Fibroid Detox supplements are fortified with nutrients and minerals that inhibit aromatase and estrogen production, and rapidly reverse the growth of uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts (including PCOS) and are even instrumental in the reversal of endometriosis.
