We are no longer accepting cases involving Just For Men® hair dye.
Combe Incorporated’s Just For Men® hair dye has been one of the most popular male hair care products. The cosmetic dye, which has been in use since 1987, has been linked to severe adverse reactions, including scarring, severe chemical burns, itching, and painful blisters on the face and scalp. Reports of adverse side effects have been reported even in men who have used the dye for years.

Just For Men® Hair Dye Side Effects
In October 2012, Consumer Affairs reported a growing number of reports linking Just For Men hair dyes to a variety of allergic skin reactions, including:
- Cellulitis (bacterial skin infection)
- facial swelling
- painful chemical burns on skin
- seeping facial sores
- severe itching
- skin rash
While some of these symptoms may fade in time, hospitalizations due to severe complications from Just For Men hair dye have also been reported.
Skin Reactions Caused By Harsh Chemicals
One of the main ingredients in Just For Men is a chemical called p-Phenylenediamine (PPD). This chemical has been used in hair dyes since the 1880s, and problems have been reported for nearly as long. In fact, PPD was banned in France and Germany for nearly 100 years.
The American Contact Dermatitis Society named PPD Allergen of the Year in 2006 in an effort to bring attention to the risks that the chemical poses to consumers, especially the possibility of severe skin reactions after exposure to the chemical in hair dyes. These reactions are especially serious in people who use darker colors of dye, which could expose them to higher levels of PPD.
In addition to containing irritating chemicals, Just For Men also lacks procedures which can reliably test for reactions on delicate facial skin prior to use. While the dye’s instructions call for testing on the arm skin to check for allergies, the skin on the face is much more sensitive. Men who show no reaction to the dye on their arm may have a completely different reaction to Just For Men mustache or beard dye on their face.
