Just For Men®, manufactured by Combe Incorporated, is a line of well-known hair dye products marketed to men for use in covering gray hair since 1987. The product has long been touted by celebrity endorsers like ex-baseball star Keith Hernandez and basketball hall of famer Walt Frazier as an easy way for men to cover graying hair on their heads, beards, and mustaches.
Just For Men® has been linked to severe adverse reactions including blisters, itching, skin pigmentation loss, scarring, and even anaphylactic shock. Men who have used the product over a long period of time also report serious injuries from its use.
The product liability attorneys at Wright & Schulte currently represent individuals injured by Just For Men®, a hair coloring product manufactured by Combe Incorporated.
Just For Men® History
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 has resulted in injuries from its use in hair dyes. In 2006, the American Contact Dermatitis Society named PPD Allergen of the Year. A study performed by the Cleveland Clinic and published in 2001 by the American Contact Dermatitis Society showed that African American users experienced a higher sensisitivey rate than Caucasian users [https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11381342].
In October 2012, Consumer Affairs reported an heightened number of adverse reactions after use of Just For Men® including swelling, blisters, rash, and other allergic reactions. A number of the complaints were from men that used the product for years without incident. This fact prompted some to speculate that Combe Incorporated had changed its formulation, something the company denies.
