    The story of 'Coltrane Clay'

    I love John Coltrane for showing us the way.
    So Triumph & Disaster's hair clay is a direct homage to the greatness of the man, to his legacy, he will always have my back so we hope this styling clay will have yours.
    It was designed with all these emotions and thoughts in front of us. From the iconic gold and black packaging to the muted fragrance tones we call American tobacco, aromas like you might once have expected in a New York dive bar where JC once played. The textured, layered styling effect the clay delivers to hair, a multifaceted performed that says I'm here on my terms, I may party, I may not, whatever I decide it will be my decision, the gift of managing your own style, that was inspired by the one and only John William Coltrane.

    At Triumph & Disaster we started life as a skincare foundry, making moisturisers and exfoliators to help protect and clean skin. So when we moved our attention to hair we brought with us the learning's and beliefs we developed in our focus on skin.

    Many tread the path, but few keep the way - the story of 'Fibre Royale'.

    When Mark Twain famously quipped 'there is no such thing as an original idea', he was making the point that when we create we are in fact reimagining the shards and strands of all that has gone before us and moulding them into a shape we can call our own. After all, inspiration has to come from somewhere.
