Just For Men Lawsuits Contend Men The Hair Dye Has Caused Men To Suffer Severe Chemical Burns And Other Serious Skin Reactions
Just For Men lawsuits continue to be filed by Wright & Schulte LLC on behalf of men nationwide who have suffered allergic skin reactions and severe chemical burns after using the popular men’s hair dye product. More than 560 men were named as plaintiffs in Just For Men lawsuits that were recently filed in the St. Clair (Illinois) County Circuit Court against the product’s manufacturer, Combe Inc., and its subsidiaries.
The plaintiffs represented in the Just For Men facial burn lawsuits contend that Combe Inc. and its units knew about the injuries suffered by consumers of Just For Men products but failed to warn about the risks. An Illinois man said he used Just For Men in August 2014 and suffered a severe reaction that included blisters, burning, redness, itching, rash and permanent skin discoloration. An Alabama man said he used Just For Men in July 2014 and experienced swelling, redness, irritation, oozing, weeping sores, blisters and burns that resulted in him having to seek medical treatment. The Just For Men Lawsuits further contend that the defendants did not place information about the adverse reactions on their website or in their advertising material. (Case No. 16-L-222,16-L-239, 16-L-240, 20th Judicial Circuit, St. Clair County Illinois)
“Our ongoing Just For Men investigation continues to show the serious effects these hair dye products have on men who were not warned about their potential risks,” says Wright & Schulte LLC, which is also representing more than 1,300 men in Just For Men complaints filed in St. Clair County and in the St. Louis Circuit Court in Missouri.
Men who used Just For Men products and suffered chemical burns, severe rashes, blistering of skin, scarring or other serious reactions may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and other damages.

The popular Just For Men permanent color dye products help men cover the gray in their hair, mustache and beard. Since coming on the U.S. market in 1987, Just For Men has been promoted by famous athletes including ex-baseball star Keith Hernandez and basketball hall of famer Walt Frazier. By the 1990s, however, complaints began to mount over the hair dye products.
One of the primary problems with Just For Men is p-Phenylenediamine (PPD), an ingredient in the product, according to lawsuit clams. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency listed several links between PPD and severe dermatitis, acute contact dermatitis, renal failure, vitiligo, convulsions and comas, the lawsuits say. In addition, a study by the Cleveland Clinic found that African American men had a higher sensitivity rate to PPD (21.2 percent) compared to Caucasians (4.2 percent). Despite other studies and reports regarding the adverse reactions of African American males to the product, the defendants aggressively targeted the African American community in their marketing and advertising campaign.
In addition to the Just For Men lawsuits, Consumer Affairs has reported complaints from men who say they suffered severe allergic reactions that include weeping sores, severe itching, scarring, skin blisters, severe chemical burns and other skin conditions after using Just For Men products. The reports came from men who once used the products and did not experience problems. Now, the men questioned whether there was a change in ingredients that prompted the allergic reactions they were experiencing, according to the report.
