If you are colouring your hair or beard there are 5 non-negotiable’s that you should make sure your product ticks off before you consider using it.  We may be biased but Colour Cream by Clooney Club ticks all of these boxes, no problem.

1.  The Colour Result
Number one on this list is here for good reason; the end result is what matters most.  It needs to look as natural as possible while covering the greys.  Aside from looking natural it also needs to look good! When you look in the mirror you need to be happy with the result.

Instead of having multiple different products to achieve different looks, the product should also be flexible in what it can achieve.  For example, if the product is left in for 10 minutes you will achieve a salt and pepper look.  If the product is left in for 15+ minutes, you will cover all of your greys.  

A good product will give you the freedom to get the exact look you are after.

2.  How Long It Lasts
There is a key rule to abide by here.  If the product works extremely fast (5 minutes), it generally means the coverage of your greys won’t last that long.  For hair colours to work this fast, they have accelerating acids in the formula that are not only bad for your hair and scalp but they also greatly affect the colour result and how long the product will last for.  

Getting a result that actually lasts for 5+ weeks with a gradual fade is very achievable with the right colour.

A good product will take over 10 minutes to work and it will also have no maximum in-hair time.

3.  Hair & Scalp Health
If you are using hair colour, it is a grooming regime that takes place frequently.  The timing depends on how long your hair is and how often you visit your barber (the best time to use colour is straight after a fresh cut).  This can be as short as 2 weeks and as long as 6+ weeks.  Either way, you're going to want to make sure that the product you are colouring with is not going to jeopardise the health of your hair and scalp.  

The right product to use is one that is ammonia free and paraben free.  You will also want to make sure that the product has natural ingredients to keep your hair conditioned.  

If the instructions read that "you must get the product out of your hair before 10 minutes of time", maybe it’s not something that you would want in your hair.  Colour Cream by Clooney Club has no maximum time although you can achieve great results in 15 minutes.

A good men's hair colour will not make your scalp itchy while you are applying it or leave your hair feeling dry after application.

4.  Easy & Pleasant To Use
Like anything that is in your grooming regime you want it to fit in easily.  Using a colour that is drip free will make it much easier to apply while making sure you don’t make a mess in your bathroom.  It will also save you time.

From experience I have found that some company's products smell like chemicals, making the experience quite unpleasant and you're left wondering what it actually is that you are putting in your hair.

If it smells like paint stripper, try a new product.

5.  Environmentally Friendly
As well as making sure the colour is good for you, you want to make sure that once it’s flushed down the drain it isn’t going to cause any environmental damage.  Find a product that is biodegradable to ensure this.

Also make sure that the packaging is made out of recyclable materials so once you are finished with it, it can go to the right place.
