L'Oréal faces another lawsuit over Alma Legend relaxer

2-Nov-2016

A second lawsuit has been filed against L'Oréal relating to its SoftSheen-Carson Optimum Amla Legend No-Mix No-Lye Relaxer

L’Oréal has come under renewed fire for its SoftSheen-Carson Optimum Amla Legend No-Mix No-Lye Relaxer for hair.

The product is already at the centre of a class action lawsuit brought against L’Oréal by two US women Dorothy Riles and Sharon Manier in September.

The two plaintiffs allege that thousands of women have experienced distressing and in some cases severe injuries such as blisters and burns as a result of using the product, which is designed to help hair feel fuller and silkier.

Now another woman has come forward, according to TMZ, claiming that she too has suffered physically because of the relaxer. Submitting photo evidence of her injuries, Delicia Taylor claims that L’Oréal’s product burned her hair and left her almost bald.

With the help of attorney Mark Geragos, Taylor has now submitted a new class-action lawsuit of her own, and is seeking more than $5m in damages from the beauty conglomerate, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.
