What is Just For Men?
Just For Men is everywhere. If you watch television, chances are you’ve seen one of the many Just For Men commercial featuring famous sports celebrities. Just for Men has partnered with major sporting events like golf tournaments and wrestling matches.
These aggressive marketing techniques have made Just For Men the go-to product for men looking to cover up gray hair. Just For Men is by far the leading men’s hair coloring brand in the United States. According to a survey conducted by IRI, Just For Men was the top brand in 2012 with sales of $137.3 million. The next product that wasn’t related to Just For Men had sales of only $6.6 million.
Since Just For Men was first introduced by Combe Incorporated back in 1987, it has spawned several more products, including the original Just For Men, Just For Men Autostop, Just For Men Mustache and Beard, and more.
What’s in Just For Men Hair Dye?
Just For Men uses a chemical cocktail designed to penetrate and color different types of hair. An article in Wired looked at what’s inside Just For Men hair dye. Needless to say, the product is filled with chemicals like ethanolamine, erythorbic acid, ethoxydiglycol, and resorcinol.
Each of these chemicals has a specific purpose, but the one that’s at the center of the controversy is p-phenylenediamine, often referred to as PPD. PPD is commonly used in hair dyes as an intermediate dye to produce coloration when oxidized.
Just For Men Side Effects
The instruction sheet for the dye does warn that allergic reactions may occur. But that doesn’t mean Just For Men is free of liability. Hundreds of men have complained about severe side effects to the hair dye. This includes allergic reactions and chemical burns.
ConsumerAffairs, a consumer news and advocacy organization, has received more than 650 complaints from people who suffered unexpected side effects to the hair dye. Here’s an excerpt from one of the hundreds of comments:
“I used this product and the agony is indescribable, from facial sores to becoming antisocial due to your appearance; leaking blisters, redness, scabbing, just to name a few, then add itching, burning, leaking sensation, just overall discomfort. To make a long story short, everything said negative about this product is true! Lesson learned and wish I had researched this concoction before using…”
This isn’t just an isolated incident. Reviews on sites like Amazon and posts from bloggers show this is a problem that needs to be addressed.
And, despite claims from the public that the formula was altered, a spokeswoman told ConsumerAffairs in 2012 that it had not been changed in about seven years. This means they have done nothing to adapt the formula to make it safer.
Do I Have a Case Against Just For Men?
Even though many men use Just For Men with no issues, that doesn’t mean Combe Incorporated is off the hook for any injuries men may have suffered from the hair dye.
If you suffered any of the following symptoms, you may have a lawsuit:
- Chemical burns
- Skin lesions
- Burning sensations
- Skin rash
In some cases, longtime users developed these symptoms after several uses. Many of these symptoms will fade over time, but hospitalization has been known to occur in severe cases.
