Suffered an Injury from a “Just for Men” Allergy?

"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.

Just for Men Allergic Reactions, Burns and Skin Irritation

Just for Men contains a number of chemicals that could be a skin irritant, including p_Phenylnediamine (PPD) which has been linked to severe reactions in many other consumer products.

The American Contact Dermatitis Society rated PPD as the “Allergen of the Year” in 2006, and the FDA has previously banned use of the product in cosmetics applied directly to the skin, due to severe reactions reported among users.

While the known skin irritant is still allowed in hair dyes, use of PPD in Just for Men raises serious questions, since the product is directly applied to the face of men with beards or mustaches.

Warnings about skin reactions to Just for Men are inadequate and fail to provide consumers with accurate and complete information to decide whether it is worth the risk of severe and potentially permanent injury to use the hair, beard and mustache dye.

Just for Men warnings recommend users conduct an in-home “skin patch test”, advising consumers to apply the product to a small area of skin and monitor for allergic reactions. However, these home tests are known to be unreliable and ineffective in most cases, as facial skin is much more sensitive and consumers are unable to perform the tests in a properly controlled setting.

If proper warnings about the risk of allergic reactions, chemical burns and skin irritation from Just for Men hair dye had been provided, many individuals may have been able to avoid serious injuries and permanent scarring or disfigurement.
