Just For Men Allergic Reactions Reported
In fact, Consumer Affairs has received more than 400 complaints from users about serious side effects including chemical burns, allergic reactions, irritated skin and more.

Black Hair Dye Chemical Burn Reactions
Recent lawsuits have alleged that Just For Men contains potent chemicals that may cause certain users adverse reactions from time to time. One such chemical, p-Phenylenediamine (PPD), has long been used as an effective hair dye, but also causes moderate to severe allergic reactions in 5-7% of users, with African American men being particularly susceptible to the reaction, according to the American Contact Dermatitis Society. It is believed that the darker colors of Just For Men contain more PPD, thus increasing the risk of a Just Form Men allergic reaction. Additionally, the dye’s labeling does not contain adequate warnings or information about product testing the product on one’s skin, according to the Just For Men hair dye lawsuits.
