What is Just For Men Brush In Color Gel? 

Just For Men is a permanent 2-component hair color, developed especially for guys’ facial hair. It covers only the gray parts of the beard – it will not give you a completely different color!

As the name supposes, you brush it into the beard, leave it in and wash it out.

It works best on longer beards, because short stubbles and so the colored ones will grow out fast. The color will stay just for some days. 

This product is available in 4 different nuances so you can pick the one that matches you natural beard color best. There is a “color calculator” on their product website too 🙂

The box contains the color base, the natural color developer, a mixing tray, a brush and disposable gloves sized for guys hands. Plus printed instructions of course. 

Product Promise

The maker claims:

  • Bring out the Best in your Facial Hair.
  • Facial hair looks fuller, more even and well-groomed.
  • Gets rid of the scraggly look of gray facial hairs.

  • Lasts until the gray grows back.

The color should be close to the original tint of your beard. Too dark looks not natural, and too bright will not take effect enough. For my beard, I have choosen the middle brown.

The result is an evenly refresh of your natural beard color. Gray hairs are covered optimal.

A pack of Just For Men Brush in Color gel costs around 8 Dollars on amazon.com and 15 euro on amazon.de. Depending on the length of your beard, one pack is enough for several applications. For my beard, one kit lasts for 3 applications.

Summary
If you want to dye your beard, the options are limited (at least here in Europe). Just for men Brush in Color offers a nice package with easy usage and long lasting, good covering result. Still, it's is a chemical bomb, yep, which is reflected in the overall rating.

  1. Thank you for the nice digest Matthias. I don’t need any brush beard color but you never know. What s about hena?

    • A guy on Instagram got kinda pissed because of my post about this product. He proposed to use Arabic Henna instead. I checked this out but more or less all Henna options will give the beard a red blend, even when the recipe says it’s for black color there will always be a red shine. Plus, gray hair can get unexpected coloring results like green or blue. I think there are other natural products available too, I might test them in the future.
