Birmingham, AL: L'Oréal is facing a defective product class action lawsuit over claims that it failed to warn customers that Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Anti-Frizz Serum has, as its main ingredients, cyclopentasiloxane and dimethiconol, which are flammable. According to the class action, the anti-frizz serum can catch fire at temperatures above 171 degrees and can cause substantial risk of burns to face, head and neck.
The lawsuit has received certification by strict Court Judge Christina A. Snyder of the Central District of California. The class action alleges that L'Oréal USA Inc, and L'Oréal USA Products Inc, failed to label the frizz-reducing product as combustible or flammable near flame, ignition or high-heat-producing styling appliances, and misrepresented the product as safe to use with such implements, according to court documents.
Filed by plaintiffs Jill Guido and Catherine Altamura of California; Natalie Lefebvre of Texas; and Lisa Pearly of New York, the lawsuit seeks to represent any person who purchased the Serum during the period from February 4, 2008, to the present. According to court documents, during the class period, L'Oréal sold some 9.9 million units of Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Anti-Frizz Serum in the US.

I contacted the company today and was only offered a 34 dollar compensation. After using their products, shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, leave in conditioner and coconut milk anti breakage serum, I've had severe breakage and thinning.
