Just for Men is a popular men’s hair dye for covering up gray hair. It’s sold all over the world, but one of its ingredients has been known to cause severe allergic reactions. There are hundreds of men in the U.S. who have filed a mass tort against the manufacturer over this.
If you are waiting on your case to settle and you’re facing huge legal or medical bills over your fight, Tribeca can help. Our company offers lawsuit loans for people in your situation. You can continue the fight for justice with our help.
History of the Mass Tort Against Just for Men
The questionable ingredient is p-phenylenediamine (PPD), a dark coloring agent that has been used in hair dyes for over a century. It is well-known that this ingredient is an allergen. The American Contact Dermatitis Society named it “Allergen of the Year” in 2006.
Some men, especially African-American men, experience severe allergic reactions and disfigurement after using this product. Some of the reported symptoms include:
- Weeping sores
- Permanent discoloration of the skin
The EPA says that, in larger doses, this chemical can cause anaphylaxis, tremors, kidney failure, and even coma. The product warns users to do a patch test on their arm, but the skin and hair of the face can react differently. Some men have even gone to the emergency room.
Pre-Settlement Funding Protects You While You Wait
There are multiple people filing individual lawsuits and a few class actions over the past few years about this product. These cases are expensive and long to litigate and many plaintiffs with legitimate complaints may not be able to wait until their cases finish.
