“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.
MANUFACTURER: Combe Inc.
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.
