Just For Men Hair Dye Injuries
Just For Men hair dye has been a popular product since it was released in 1987. However, many men who use the product have experienced adverse reactions on their faces, scalps, and skin.
In early 2019, the Orlando Sentinel reported on a 62-year-old Florida man who sued Combe Incorporated, the product’s manufacturer, after he experienced permanent scarring on his face after using Just For Men to dye his beard.
What Side Effects Are Associated with Just For Men Hair Dye?
Adverse side effects from using Just For Men hair dye have been in the news for years. In 2012, Consumer Affairs revealed that some men had allergic reactions to chemicals in the hair dye that resulted in symptoms such as:
- Loss of skin pigmentation
In addition to being painful, these complications can also be disfiguring, resulting in psychological effects such as reduced self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. If you or someone you love used Just For Men hair dye and experienced any of these side effects, the defective product lawyers at Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough want to speak with you.
Allergic Reactions Can Occur at Any Time—Even After Years of Use
The chances of developing an allergic reaction or other serious side effect after using Just For Men are unpredictable. Some men show side effects after just one usage, while others may use the product for years before suddenly experiencing serious reactions.
Combe Incorporated is aware of the risk of potential side effects and allergic reactions, and it recommends users perform “allergy test patches” on their skin to find out if they will have adverse reactions to the product. In addition, the company advises users to seek immediate medical attention if they experience side effects.
However, the side effects associated with Just For Men hair dye can be both extremely disfiguring and painful, and they may require extensive medical treatment.

The costs associated with serious Just For Men-related injuries can be significant. Victims may need to be hospitalized to treat the effects of serious allergic reactions, and they may require cosmetic procedures to reduce the appearance of burns, scars, vitiligo, and loss of skin pigmentation.
