"Just for Men" Hair and Beard Dye Side Effects and Problems
“Just for Men” is a widely used hair and beard dye product introduced by Combe Inc. in 1987. It is marketed as a hair dye product for men experiencing graying associated with aging.
The product has been aggressively marketed, with advertisements featuring aging sports stars, such as Hall of Fame basketball player Walt Frazier and baseball player Keith Hernandez. It has become the most widely recognized brand name hair, bread and mustache dye for men.
Although “Just for Men” has been on the market for more than 25 years, a number reports have surfaced in recent years involving severe allergic reactions and skin irritation from Just for Men. This has raised questions about whether there have been recent changes to the product, and whether inadequate warnings provided by the manufacturer may be contributing to the problems.
In October 2012, the consumer news and advocacy organization Consumer Affairs noted that they have received an increasing number of complaints involving Just for Men problems, including reports of allergic reactions, chemical burns, itching and painful blisters.
In addition to painful skin irritation, side effects of Just for Men hair dye may lead to the need for hospitalization or continuing medical care, including treatment with steroids or anti-inflammatory medications. In some cases, men have been left with permanent facial scarring from Just for Men.
