A New York woman is suing L’Oreal claiming that one of their relaxers burned her head and left her bald.

According to TMZ, Delicia Taylor said that L’Oreal’s SoftSheen-Carson Optimum Amla Legend No-Mix, No-Lye Relaxer caused burns, blisters, scabs and bald spots on her scalp after using the product on her hair. She is now joining a current lawsuit against the company.

As Hello Beautiful previously reported, in September, two women filed a $5 million class action lawsuit against L’Oréal and its hair care brand SoftSheen-Carson claiming SoftSheen-Carson Optimum Amla Legend No-Mix, No-Lye  causes hair loss and scalp burns. One key plaintiff, Dorothy Riles, who has been forced to wear a wig, claims the relaxer left her with bald patches, burns and scabs. The other, Sharon Manier, said that immediately after using the product, she experienced scalp irritation and, after washing it out, there was “significant” hair loss.

The lawsuit also states that consumers were tricked into using the line’s products because of celebrity endorsements from Cynthia Bailey, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Michelle Obama’s hair stylist.
