Pros: Easy to use and no mixing.
Cons: You could have trouble getting this out of your clothes.
If you are getting tired of looking at all of that grey hair popping through that natural dark brown hair on your beard and mustache, then this the product for you. It is a real pain when you find the right stuff, but then you have to spend time mixing and then shampooing out the excess. With this stuff I have not had to mix or even wash out any excess product from my hair. This mustache and beard "Just For Men AutoStop" brush-in color gel dark Brown (A-45) is just what the doctor ordered. You can find this at just about Walgreens or big box store such as Wal-Mart or even K-Mart for only $9.99. One package will be enough to do your beard and mustache for about three months. That is better than going to the salon to spend $40 every month for color treatments.
Inside of the box you will get everything that you will need, such as one tube of coloring (1/2 ounce of each), this is the only tube that you get because there is no mixing involved. The other thing that you will receive is a screw on brush/applicator, the product inside of the tube has the same odor as the product that you have to mix. This tube has a strong smell to it when you open it up. You also get a brush that you will need to screw onto the threaded end top of the tube. There is also a pair of clear plastic gloves that will help you protect your hands, if you think that you might get a little messy. There are easy step by step instructions inside that anyone will be able to follow.
The color base has Water, cetearyl alcohol, steareth-21, 1.2.4-trihydroxybenzene, ethanolamine, ceteareth-20, hydroxyethyl cellulose, m-phenylenediamine, p-phenylenediamine, toluene-2, 5-diamine, n.n-bis(2-hydroxyethyl)-p-phenylenediamine sulfate, fragrance, manganese sulfate, p-aminophenol, erythrism acid, sodium sulfite, ethdronicacid.
I usually use this product once a month to keep the gray at bay. The hardest part about using this hair color is paying for it. This coloring is basically simple to use, all you have to do is screw the brush applicator on the threaded end of the tube of pre-mixed color base and color developer, squeeze and then apply to your hair.
This is how I do it, but the directions say to first put the gloves on, and then squeeze the tube and the product will ooze the middle of the brush applicator. Once you do this then use the brush to mix the color into your gray areas of your hair, the pre-mixed colors will give you the desired color that you desire. If you make sure that the cap is on tight, you should have enough to do several applications. Once this product is subjected to the air you should apply quickly, because it dries very fast. Do not massage color in with hands, you will need apply with brush strokes. Squeeze out only small amounts of color, and wipe the ends of the brush applicator after you use it so that you do not make the color that is left in the tube to dry out.
You will only need 5 minutes to let this set on your beard or mustache, the longer that this sets the darker your hair will get. As long as you apply this properly then it should change all of those grey hairs back to the original dark brown color. While you are waiting for this to set up, take a few minutes to clean up the brush, fir the next use You can always re-use this, because your gray hairs will probably be back in about a week or two.
It is very easy to get the hang of doing and you will be happy with the results, at least I am. If you are careful when you apply this product, you will not need the gloves and you can do as I did, and that is just squeeze the tube and re-apply as needed. If you do get this on any clothing you may as well throw them out, because this will permanently stain your clothing. So, I recommend that you take your shirt off when doing this.
If you have sensitive skin then I would stay from this or apply it very lightly and wash the excess off before it is too late. Make sure that you do not do your eyelashes or eyebrows, because this could cause blindness. This will not drip and is easy to work into your beard no matter how thick it is. You can get more than 5 applications out of one tube, depending on how much of the coloring that you use each time.
I highly recommend that if you are tired of looking at that gray hair in your mustache and beard, this will definitely solve your problem. It worked after one application for me, even though I have had grey hairs in my mustache for several years. In a matter of less than five minutes, I looked younger than I have looked in years. Just make sure that you start out lightly when applying this product to your hair, because when this gets on what you do not want this to go on it is really hard to get off. I am very satisfied with the results that I have gotten and it looks like that this is going to be a permanent fixture on my bathroom. Five stars for actually working and how quick that it worked. By the way they do make several different shades of this stuff, so give it a try. You will only be out 10 dollars if you don't like it.
