MIDDLE-AGED MEN WITH GREYING HAIR MUST BE CAREFUL TO NOT COLOR HAIR TOO DARK OR ELSE IT LOOKS EITHER LIKE A TYPICAL "DYE-JOB" OR A TOUPEE.

FROM EXPERIMENTING WITH SEVERAL COLORS, I DISCOVERED THAT LIGHT-MEDIUM BROWN DOESN'T GIVE THAT DREADED 'TOO-DARK-PAINTED PHONY APPEARANCE BUT INSTEAD REMOVES ALMOST 90+% OF THE GRAY LEAVING HAIR LIGHT ENOUGH TOO APPEAR MORE NATURAL...SOMETIMES THE TOP HAIR MAY APPEAR ALMOST SLIGHTLY "BLONDISH" IN NATURAL LIGHT...AS IF THE SUN MAY HAVE "BLEACHED" THE HAIR A BIT.
HAIRDRESSER TIP: IF TOO DARK, WASH HAIR WITH 'JOY' DISHWASHING DETERGENT...IT WILL LIGHTEN THE DYED HAIR JUST ENOUGH TO MAKE IT LOOK MORE 'NATURAL' AGAIN. IF IN DOUBT WHICH COLOR TO USE, START LIGHTER AT FIRST THEN GO TO A DARKER SHADE IF NECESSARY...ALSO TRY LEAVING LIGHTER PRODUCT ON HAIR LONGER [UP TO 10 MINUTES] SO THE DYE WILL PENETRATE DEEPER AND DYE DARKER. THE "JOY" SOAP CAN ALWAYS CORRECT ANY "OVER-DYE."
"JUST FOR MEN" PRODUCTS DELIVER ON THEIR PROMISES...QUICK...EASY...LONG LASTING THROUGH MANY HAIR WASHES [WITH SHAMPOO]. RECOMMEND APPLYING PRODUCT IN SHOWER TO MAKE JOB EASIER AND LESS MESSY...THE SHOWER SPRAY WATER WILL CLEAN-UP ANY DYE SPATTER....WHETHER ON YOU OR THE SHOWER WALLS, FLOOR, ETC. ENJOY YOUR NEW FOUND YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE GUYS!

Have used dark blonde/lightest brown product for years and years after wanting a little better coloring than the Sandy Brown product offered. Your former product was superb - good, consistent coloring every time. Best yet, very few believed I even used hair dye because the color was SO natural.

Then you decided to reformulate the product, and even started featuring much younger men on the boxes. Trouble is this new product is an absolute dud. Coverage is inconsistent at absolute best, and where the color does work, it is a much darker shade than previously.

But worse is how un-natural the new color looks. I now literally look like some rank amateur trying to color his own hair but not having a clue how to do it right.

WHY, WHY, WHY would you change such a good product???? I found some old boxes on the internet, but they won't last forever. Take a clue - find out what you did wrong and fix it - you ruined a good product.

        Unfortunately shops just sell the new formula stuff - which is absolutely useless - washes out within 10-12 days, fading after 7 days - pathetic product.

        The original formula was great - and got 6 weeks i.e. time between hair cuts
        New product has the stink of the marketing department on it - don't buy it! See if you can get the original formula- that's good!

          Comments about Original Formula:

          Just for Men is very easy to use (and quick to use too) and it looks good! My one big issue being a natural medium blond is that these products always seem to go darker than what you want or expect. That's a challenge for fair-haired guys like me. Even the Sandy Blond ends up looking Medium Brown when I actually use it (and I am following the directions).

              Comments about Original Formula:

              I've been using this too long because it seems to be the only thing available for men. The more grey you have, the worse it works. I use the "Original Formula" but I don't think it is the original formula, unless they have changed it twice. It comes with two liquids that get mixed together, and both liquids have a different color and viscosity compared to when I started using it five to ten years ago. That's just part of the deceptive advertising. They say it targets the grey or targets only the grey... DECEPTIVE. If it does target, it misses badly, because it darkens all hair. Web site says it lasts up to 8 weeks, the box I buy says up to 6 weeks (and it used to say up to 4 weeks before they changed the formula)... DECEPTIVE. I can see it has started to fade and/or started to wash out after 1-2 weeks. 2 weeks is less than 6-8 weeks, so that does fit the legal definition of "up to", but it's still deceptive to say up to 6 or 8 weeks in my opinion. I use a mild, made for colored hair shampoo so that should not be the problem. It's not just the roots that are grey in two weeks, that would be new growth that didn't get colored. It is the longer growth that did get colored that's starts fading and turning grey again. But this will permanently stain fiberglass and plastic tub/shower materials, Corian and similar sink materials, paint on bathroom walls, and grout between tiles. Wash these surfaces thoroughly immediately after using this product even if you don't see anything there. Small spots you cannot see right after application will be dark, colored spots in 8 hours and will not wash out completely. I'm off to find something better.
