A growing number of reports received by the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. highlight the serious consequences men may face due to side effects of Just for Men hair and beard dye products, which have been linked to painful and disfiguring skin reactions, often occurring even among men who used the product for years without any problems.

It appears increasingly likely that men who have suffered Just for Men burns, rashes or other allergic reactions may be entitled to financial compensation through a product liability lawsuit, as the manufacturer may have known about the risk of serious problems for years and withheld information from consumers.

Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. provides free consultations and claim evaluations for men throughout the United States who have been hospitalized or required medical treatment due to severe reactions to Just for Men dye, including:

  • Chemical Burns
  • Swelling
  • Severe Itching
  • Blisters
  • Sores
  • Swollen Throats and Trouble Breathing

Just For Men Chemical Burns and Allergic Reactions

Just for Men Burn Lawyers

Have You Suffered an Allergic Reaction or Burn from “Just for Men”?


Just for Men products have been on the market since 1987, and are advertised as being specifically formulated for male hair, beards, and mustaches.

While it is promoted as safe, Just for Men may contain serious skin irritants that should not have been included in a hair dye product designed to be applied directly to the face, which is more sensitive than the scalp or other areas of the body.

While our injury lawyers are continuing to investigate the link between Just for Men and burns suffered by men throughout the U.S., it appears that the organic compound known as p-Phenylenediamine (PPD) may be the culprit in many cases.

p-Phenylenediamine (PPD) is a known skin irritant that has been banned by the FDA for most cosmetics. While it is still allowed in hair dye, given the direct application to the beard and mustache, the sensitive facial skin may be more likely to react to Just for Men dye.

Just For Men Burn Lawsuits

As a result of a sudden reaction or chemical burns from Just for Men, it is often necessary for individuals to seek immediate medical treatment. In serious cases, hospitalization may be necessary to treat swelling, blisters, weeping sores or other problems.

Following treatment for the Just for Men burns, permanent and disfiguring scarring may result, including areas of skin discoloration or loss of skin color pigment in patches.

As a result of the manufacturer’s failure to adequately warn about the potential Just for Men dangers or provide adequate instructions to identify individuals who may be at risk of an allergic reaction, financial compensation may be available through a legal claim.

    Damn, this is the only stuff that will keep my hair colored for at least 2 weeks but:

    1. Causes itchy scalp
    2. Redness, bumps and leakage behind my ears
    3. Inflammed heat around my ears and neck
    4. Eventual thinning of my hair (up front)
    5. A sort of flu like feeling the next day or two

    Unfortunately I have no medical documentation to back the above up, but I will say this without exception, the makers of this product are fooling the public and they protect themselves by warning potential users to take “the strand, skin allergy test” before using the product!
