About Just for Men
Just for Men is a male-oriented hair coloring product designed to cover grey hair. It is manufactured by Combe Incorporated, who also produces several other products aimed at covering grey hair in beards, mustaches, and sideburns. Just for Men is available in more than 15 countries, and is available in the United States for less than $10 a box.
Unfortunately, some users of the product have recently come forward with claims that they suffered extremely painful reactions, including chemical burns, after using Just for Men. Additionally, skin blistering and intense itching have been associated with use of this product. In some cases, side effects from using the product have been so severe that users have had to visit the Emergency Room to receive treatment for their symptoms.

Consumer Complaints Regarding Just for Men
Just for Men has been on the market since 1987, but in late 2012, Consumer Affairs announced an increase in the number of reports it received from men claiming that they suffered serious side effects, including pain burns and other skin irritations, from using the product. This was followed by allegations that Just for Men had changed the chemical composition of their product, as the increase in complaints was significant and some complaints came from long-time users of the product. The company, however, denies that it changed the makeup of the product in any way.
Ingredients in Just for Men
Just for men is made of a combination of chemicals, including Ethoxydiglycol, oleyl alcohol, vegetable fatty acid, Ethanolamine, erythorbic acid, Trisodium EDTA, Polyguaterium-22, p-Aminophenol and p-Phenylenediamine, Resorcinol, and Hydrogen Peroxide. P-Phenylenediamine, also referred to as PPD, is a known allergen and was even named the Allergen of the Year by the American Contact Dermatitis Society in 2006.
The Just for Men instructions tell users to test a patch of skin for allergic reactions before each use of the product. According to the product instructions, users should test a patch of skin and wait up to 48 hours for any signs of an allergic reaction to arise, including a stinging or burning sensation. The instructions also direct users to seek immediate medical attention if they experience more significant side effects, including a severe rash, swelling of the skin, dizziness, shortness of breath, and weeping of the skin. Interestingly, Consumer Affairs notes that by providing this warning, the makers of the product acknowledge awareness of the potential risks involved with use of their product.
