Just for Men Burns and Blisters Reported

- by

Santa Clara, CA: Complaints are being filed against the makers of "Just for Men"hair and beard dye alleging the product may cause allergic reactions and severe burns, particularly among African American men.

According to one lawsuit, a growing number of side effects have been reported over the past few years by men who have used the product, specifically, severe allergic reactions that have resulted in hospitalization, scarring, infections and other complications.

"Just for Men"is a popular male hair and beard dye marketed for removal of grey hair. Recently, claims have been made to suggest that one particular ingredient in Just for Men hair dye, p-Phenylenediamine (PPD), is associated with severe skin reactions, as well as acute and chronic injuries such as severe dermatitis, kidney failure, vitiligo, convulsions, comas and eczematoid contact dermatitis.

Further claims have been made alleging PPD is known to cause reactions in African American men five times more frequently than populations of men with fair hair.

Consumer Affairs has received more than 400 reports of burns or allergic reactions to "Just for Men"since the group first warned about the risk of allergic reactions in 2012.

I HAVE ALWAYS USED JUST FOR MEN FOR THE PAST 15 YEARS WHEN I STARTED TO GET THE GREYS. NEVER HAD A PROBLEM UNTIL MY MOST RECENT COLORINGS, ONCE IN JAN 2018, AN ONCE JUST A FEW DAYS AGO... USUALLY TWICE A YEAR OR WHEN I FEEL ITS TIME. I HATE TO SAY IT, BUT IT WAS JUST A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. I HAVE NEVER HAD ALLERGIES AND ALWAYS TESTED FOR IT WITH JUST FOR MEN. THE PAST TWO EPISODES WERE EXACTLY THE SAME REACTIONS, ITCHY AND BURNING SCALP, ITCHY AND BURNING BLISTERING AT THE TOP OF MY EARS, AND FOREHEAD, AND AROUND THE EYES. MY SCALP HAS BEEN DAMAGED BOTH TIMES, AND HAIR LOSS HAS RESULTED. I ONLY HOPE THAT IT RECOVERS THIS TIME AS I AM GOING THROUGH IT AGAIN. IT TOOK MY SCALP A FEW MONTHS TO RECOVER DURING THE FIRST EXPERIENCE. I WILL BE SEEING MY DOCTOR TO RUN TESTS. I CAN ONLY SAY THAT I HAVE ALWAYS TRUSTED THE PRODUCT UP TO THIS POINT, AND WILL NOT GET ANYWHERE NEAR IT AGAIN. MY ADVICE IS.... REFRAIN FROM USING JUST FOR MEN !!! SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT WITH THE FORMULA. I MAY NOT EVEN COLOR MY HAIR AGAIN. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE !!!!!!!!!!

I didn't have problem for the first couple of use, but had blisters after about 5th or 6th use (within a month of first use).

Please Judge don't dismiss this case. Combe inc. Is turning mens faces into free halloween mask, no need in going to store to buy one. Just for men will have your face looking like you've just had a screen play for the walking dead as a zombie.Please Judge make Combe Inc. Pay for the permanent facial damage they have inflicted upon people. Combe Inc. Knew what poisonous ingredients they had in their hair dye, an they still put it, on store shelves to ruin mens faces. Dear Judge. Please don't turn away from the truth, look at the facts an how many complaints that are filed by people who have been harmed( injured) by a deadly product. Combe Inc. Cares nothing about their victims. The only thing Combe inc. cares about is the almighty dollar. Victims deserve justice. After all their face's will never be the same. So I ask you judge to let all cases proceed, because Combe inc.knew what was in their products, knowing full well their hair dye ingredients could harm people. So Combe Inc. Should be liable for every Post Halloween mask they've created by selling a poisonous defective product.

Just for men is a terrible product it burnt my face so bad I had to go to the emergency room for treatment . I did the allergy test on my arm and absolutely nothing happen but it burnt the hell out of my face leaving blisters and oozing pus it looked like I had a flesh eating disease I actually had skin falling off in my hand when washing my face to keep it clean my nodes swelled from infection with big hard knots in my face and under my chin . please stop selling this stuff and take it off the shelf before others go through this . I have never been allergic to anything in my life and I don't think this was an allergic reaction I belive ther was a mishap in the formula I would rather put nair on my beard then this stuff.
