Class Action Against Olaplex for Hair Loss
Promising their customers relief and protection from damaged and compromised hair, a class action against Olaplex is revealing that the products are doing quite the opposite.
Filed on February 9, 2023 in California, two dozen women have filed claims and suits that the quality of their hair is far worse after using Olaplex products than before. This comes after previous actions taken against the company from claims that Olaplex products containing the ingredient lilial were said to cause reproductive issues in men and women.
The women coming forward with the class action suit against Olaplex Holdings Inc. are currently seeking over $75,000 in damages.
Negative Hair Changes From Using Olaplex
According to the claims made by the women in the class action suits against Olaplex, the products were causing the following issues:
- Hair dryness
- Brittle hair
- Frizzy hair
- Skin rashes
- Bald spot formation
- Hair fallout
While these were the most common negative effects that consumers of the product were seeing after utilizing the products, further scalp or hair conditions have been noted as well. The aim at Olaplex products as the culprit for these effects is evident due to all conditions or poor hair quality reversing after ceasing to further use Olaplex products.
Seeking Compensation for Damages from Olaplex
While the women who have already filed class action lawsuits against Olaplex have done so on the basis of the damage of their hair, they are also seeking compensation for the physiological damage that poor hair health or hair conditions can take on an individual. The mental health effects of hair loss are ones not to take lightly. Physiological problems that can stem from hair loss include:
- Decreased confidence
- Reduction in work
- Reduction in sexual performance
- Social withdrawal
- Suicidal tendencies
Legal Rights of Those Affected by Olaplex
Plaintiffs in previously filed suits are seeking compensation from having to endure:
- Loss of hair
- Development of scalp or hair conditions
- Emotional distress and discomfort
- Medical costs
If you have endured any of the above or have been inflicted with more extensive damage from the use of Olaplex products, you may be entitled to compensation.
