“Just for Men” hair, beard and mustache dye products may cause users to suffer severe chemical burns and allergic reactions, resulting in swelling, scarring and disfigurement.

JUST FOR MEN LAWSUIT STATUS: Product liability lawyers are reviewing “Just for Men” lawsuits on behalf of individuals throughout the United States.



OVERVIEW: “Just For Men” hair coloring was originally released in 1987, and is advertised as a hair, beard and mustache dye specifically to cover up gray hair for men.

There are a host of products in the line, from beard and mustache coloring kits to hair and side burns and even some that are designed to add a touch of gray to hair.

Over the past few years, concerns have emerged about the growing number of reports involving severe chemical burns and other allergic reactions among “Just for Men” users.

The side effects of Just For Men may include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Burning of the skin
  • Swelling of the skin
  • Severe itching
  • Blisters and weeping sores
  • Trouble breathing due to throat swelling

“JUST FOR MEN” ALLERGIC REACTIONS: Hundreds of reports have been submitted by men who had used the product for years but suddenly suffered severe chemical burns and swelling of the face. In many cases, the “Just for Men” problems emerge long after the dye was first used.

While some have speculated that the company may have changed the formulation of Just For Men, Combe officials have publicly denied that. Sudden allergic reactions among men may also be linked to changes in body chemistry among users.

“Just For Men” dye contains p-Phenylenediamine, an organic compound that is considered one of the most prevalent allergens in the world.

In May 2009, the medical journal Dermatitis listed it as the tenth most prevalent allergen in patch tests, and it was declared Allergen of the Year by the American Contact Dermatitis Society in 2006.

CONTACT A “JUST FOR MEN” CHEMICAL BURN LAWYER ABOUT SETTLEMENTS: Free consultations and claim evaluations are being provided by Just For Men lawyers for men throughout the United States who have suffered chemical burns and other severe allergic reactions after using this product.

As a result of the manufacturers failure to warn about the risk of severe allergic reactions and burns, financial compensation may be available through “Just for Men” settlements or legal actions.

    Yes I share a lot of the same reactions….But the PPD…is 21.2% HIGHER in black men… then in white men 4.2%…Did just for men know….most likely. “ACD. WHY do black men ….never mind fuck it.

    Your product is garbage and your license to sell it should be pulled immediately. Used the beard dye like everyone else and never had an issue, then all of sudden have severe itching, blisters all over my chin and upper lip. I will never use another product made by just for men again. The name should be just for the trash can as that is where it belongs.

    Oct 19, 2019–Walking through a Nice Park, a Person I know was sitting there, all quiet, Face Swollen, RED AND Weeping WITH Puss. I said, “Jerry, you okay? something’s Wrong? He sat there like a ZOMBE-I said, “How did your face get so Swollen, Red and Weeping Blisters? How long ago did you dye your Stache and Beard? He said 3 days ago–I said, “You shave First, It opened up the pores on your skin and you dumped that DYE on there, you have a chemical burn. Come on we’ll walk to the Hospital–They gave him Hydrocortisone Cream; Presdisone Pills; Acetaminophen–I put a heavy amount of Cream on his Short Beard and chin and Stache-within 30 minutes, he said, “it already feels better at the hospital. He couldn’t even talk it burnt so BAD!! He said, “I just wanted to look like the guy on the BOX-Hospital got a chuckle, but they said, “Don’t do it again”. Jerry is a Black Male as Well, I don’t know that has something to do with the “POOR REACTION”.

    I’ve used Just for Men beard dye for well over 10 years and haven’t had a problem with itching, redness, welts etc. until this year.

    Something has definitely changed and it’s not me. There is no doubt they changed the ingredients and perhaps formula (they say they haven’t but I don’t believe it). The ingredients have most likely been sourced out to lesser quality chemical companies and the making of these chemicals are not controlled as they used to be. It’s always get the cheapest crap you can get.

    I tested a dab of Just for Men four weeks ago on my temples for exactly three minutes. I still have hives and scabs all over my body far from where it was used. They still itch bad and ooze puss. I’m not black.

  9. Brian Reply

    I used it for two years previously without so much as a single itch. But used it this week and my skin near my gottee is on fire, itiching out of Control along with a weeping blister. Something in the ingrediants has changed.

  10. Eddie Reply

    I used just for men hair and beard dye for years with out any itching burning or blisters until this year my face feels like it is on fire, hurts and itches like poison ivy with large red whelps and is starting to blister they have changed something in the makeup of their product . I haven’t ever had any allergic reaction to any foods, medicines, soaps, or beauty products but just for men is definitely a taboo for me never again !!!!

    I have used JFM for some time but recently my scalp, eyelids, eyebrows, ears, sideburns, and chin have been itching uncontrollably. The inside of my ears hurt and itch and have a dry scab feel. My chin oozes all the time. I have red dry itchy spots all over my face and it itches all the time. This is the most miserable experience I have ever had using a product of any kind. I’m in a constant state of itching, burning, and sores. I will never use JFM again and something needs to be done to stop the sell of their products. I have no idea how long this will last. So far it has been going on for a month. I hope that the marks and sores are not permanent. For a product that is supposed to help you look younger, it has made me look years older.

    I’ve used just for men for a long time now and suddenly it causes severe itching. The last time It itched so bad I scratched blisters open . It burns as well. Something has changed about this stuff.

  13. Jay Reply

    Used JFM for 20 years and recently I have ecperienced red itchy blisters where applied. Developed psoriasis like itchy scalp with flaking skin. Something has changed in the formula.

  14. Ron Reply

    I have used JFM for approximately 5 years without an issue, 24 hours ago I used it and my face is completely swollen, haven’t slept all night, have blisters and open weeping sores all over my chin upper lip, itching, burning, dabbing a Kleenex constantly to stop the oozing liquid, ( gross I know ) I’m in a lot of pain, just called in to work and said I won’t be there for a few days, I need to get to the hospital to see what they can do for me! This is brutal and unacceptable, this product should not be in stores for sale! This stuff is dangerous! Obviously a bad chemical burn, I should sue their asses off! Ice pack on my face right now trying to get the swelling down and ease the pain! So much for trying to just look a little younger )-:

    I’ve been using this product for about 7 years I’ve never really had an issue, except for a little itching. Last week I was on a cruise and decided to color my beard. About four hours later I began to experience burning and swelling and severe itching with lesions and weeping. It was extremely uncomfortable and I spent the whole evening dabbing at my beard with a napkin to control the weeping. I believe something was changed in this product because I’ve never had this kind of reaction before and as I read these comments I see that many others are experiencing the same issues. Unfortunately I will not be able to use this product anymore and that forces me to find out if there are any other options for coloring my beard. It totally ruined three days of my cruise and I have the pictures to prove it. I had a swollen puffy face and had to endure severe discomfort during a time when I was supposed to be on vacation and having the time of my life.

    I agree with the above comments. I myself am a light-skinned Hispanic male. Like most of the guys above , I had been using JFM Mustache and Beard for years with no problems. Then, all of a sudden, severe allergic reaction with itching, burning, and weeping sores on my chin and lower cheeks. So JFM claims that WE changed , not their formula? It’s just sheer coincidence that so many people suffered the same symptoms all at once? Come on, now…

    I did the 48 hour test as suggested by JFM leaflet. The next day I noticed some redness. The following day it was spreading, bumps were popping up and it started leaking this disgusting yellow fluid. I called JFM and their representative made me feel like I was bothering her. She said to just wash it with soap and cold water. That made it worse.
    Since there were no instructions on what to do if you have a reaction, I went to Walgreens with the product and and the pharmacist had no idea what to do except to use their antibiotic cream and put a gauze wrapping on it and go to ER if it gets worse.
    It’s been 6 days since l put this poison on my skin. It is spreading, leaking faster than I can put the gauze pads on it and is painful. I couldn’t sleep last night. I’m calling my doctor. This product is going to ruin my Thanksgiving.

    I have used this product also for years with no reaction now all of a sudden it Has started to burn my face and caused severe itching and redness. Something in this product has changed, and I cannot believe that they haven’t changed the ingredients. I will no longer use this product Out of fear what will happen the next time.

    Bought Just For Men last week at Walgreen’s to get rid of some gray in my beard. The next day my face was ‘on fire’ hot and my lips swelled up. My face blistered and oozed puss. It’s been about a week now and my skin doesn’t burn as bad but my lips are still tingling, burning and feel very chapped. I’d consider joining a class action against them for pain and suffering. Someone needs to find/post a remedy for the burning and the product ABSOLUTELY should be pulled from the market. Wake up, Walgreen’s!

    I started using the dye on my beard two
    years ago with no problem, In the past month I began experiencing red bumps on my chin and they would leak a clear liquid. I stopped using it immediately hoping it will clear up.

    I used this product about eight times starting in November 2019 and had no problems, Until Jan 6 2020 on my birthday I decided to get rid of the gray on my beard. I followed the directions, left it on for under three minutes and washed it off… Everything went fine until about two hours after I applied it my entire beard aera Turned red And my mouth and chin was covered in blisters…. Burning itchy and on fire. Total chemical burn. I’m beyond furious and this shit better go away. Going to contact a lawyer as soon as possible!!! Just for men ruined my face!!!

    As like the others on here I’ve been using JFM for years with no issues until around last summer. I started getting an itchy burning sensation after a couple of hours of applying JFM. I imagine my face would’ve looked red from all the scratching if I wasn’t for my dark complexion. They’ve said they haven’t changed the formula which I find hard to believe. I haven’t changed the way I’ve applied it so what gives. This product needs to be fixed or pulled of the shelves immediately!

    Well, I am grateful that I ran into this website and thread of comments by users of this product. I have been using this product for about two years now, with no issues. Until, suddenly over the course of the last few months. As I type this, my face is itchy and has a rash under the hair follicles of my beard, it has kept me up at night for the last few nights, and the rash has already developed scabbing and is releasing fluid. This product should be pulled from being sold and I will be contacting an attorney on the subject. Unbelievable……..

  31. Sam Reply

    I’m so glad I read this article! I have the same issues with using JFM and I didn’t realize that it was causing Chemical Burns on my lips!! I started getting “burned, charred lips” consistently while using JFM!! I shaved by beard almost completely off and haven’t dyed it for about a week, my charred, burned lips are completely healed after MONTHS of treating them and trying to figure out why they were peeling all the time!!! THIS IS UNREAL THAT THEY SELL A PRODUCT THAT HAS THIS REACTION ON PEOPLE!!!!
