Dry Shampoos are a lazy girl’s best friend! Well, in fact, they are everybody’s best friend because shampooing your hair too frequently can strip them of their natural oils and mess up your whole scalp chemistry. Dry shampoo, on the other hand, will soak up the excess grease that has accumulated on the roots and will restore some bounce to unwashed 2nd or 3rd-day hair. All my adult life, I have been a loyal Batiste girl and have gone through innumerable spray cans of their dry shampoos, but the BBlunt dry shampoo is the only other product that comes really close in performance to the Batiste ones. I received the BBlunt Back To Life Dry Shampoo in the fragrance Spring Fling as a giveaway price (which did arrive MONTHS after the results were announced, but oh well, better late than never). Here are my thoughts on this beauty in a bottle.
This dry shampoo is in the form of a very finely milled white powder that emanates some pleasant floral scents. A little product goes a long way, so spray a little bit on your roots, work it in with your fingers, and brush out the excess. This will keep your hair looking freshly washed and bouncy for at least 24 hours, and will add some volume too. The only thing that I don’t like about this product is that it is a white powder, so if you use too much, it can leave a grayish cast on your hair, but when you use the right amount, it won’t be visible after brushing the hair. I do wish that BBlunt comes out with a colored dry shampoo like the Divine Dark variant by Batiste, after all, BBlunt is an Indian brand and should cater to us dark-haired girls.
Overall, I feel that everybody needs this product in their lives, whether you have busy mornings with no time to shampoo your hair, travel a lot with no bathrooms in sight, or live in a humid area where your roots get oily just a few hours after shampooing your hair. Priced at INR 550 for 125ml of product, this dry shampoo has a comparable price range to Batiste, so you can try it out as an alternative, maybe you will discover a new hair favourite for this Spring!
I usually shy away from serums and anything that has oil in it because even if I apply something oily on my toes, it somehow manages to reach my roots and face, both of which are oily to begin with. However, the BBlunt Intense Moisture Hair Serum is something that works quite well for me despite my greasy roots. Read on to find out more about this product.
This serum is supposed to be specifically designed for Indian hair. It can be used on dry or towel dried hair and also provides heat protection, which I really like. Also, apart from heat protection, it claims to protect the hair from environmental damage as well, which is yet another attractive feature for me because while I have greasy roots, the ends of my hair tend to get frizzy and dry quite easily. The product contains many nourishing ingredients, such as avocado, jojoba, and argan oils and Vitamin-E, therefore it tames and hydrates the hair while protecting them from damage.
I use a very small coin-sized amount of the product, rub it between my fingers and then comb it through my hair, starting at the mid-lengths and moving towards the ends. Unlike most serums, this product does not weigh down my hair or make them look oily. The serum sinks in quickly into the hair and leaves behind a very subtle shine. It makes my hair smoother and softer to the touch and reduces the frizz without making the hair look limp. I also love the sweet fragrance of the product that lingers on the hair.
Overall, I am really impressed with this hair serum and will recommend it those who want to smoothen their hair without losing out on volume. The quirky blue bottle contains 75ml of product and is priced at INR 500, which seems reasonable to me considering the efficacy of the serum. Do try out this product and I am sure that you will love it too!
I promised you guys a while back that I will be reviewing a few hair products that are specifically designed for fine hair, so here I am. Today I will be reviewing the BBlunt Full On Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. BBlunt is a brand that is designed keeping the Indian climate and hair types in mind and this particular range claims to work on fine hair by providing them more volume, bounce, and life.
Both the shampoo and the conditioner contain rice protein for adding volume to the hair, glycerin for providing moisture, and provitamin B5 to repair damage and add lustre and shine to the hair. They are both white liquids that emanate a pleasant, aquatic scent that reminds me of a swimming pool. As you can see, the packaging of both the items is quite quirky, and although it is definitely not travel-friendly because of the added bulk, I do quite enjoy displaying these bottles in my bathroom. Also, the pump on the shampoo is certainly a plus.
As for the performance of the products, the shampoo lathers pretty well and a small amount of the product leaves the hair feeling fresh and clean. After following it up with the conditioner, my hair feels smooth and soft, and looks healthier too. Upon drying, my hair looks more voluminous and bouncier than usual however does not feel overly dry or stripped. BBlunt has done a good job at creating a formula that provides a right mix of hydration and cleansing, leaving limp hair looking more bouncy but not rough like a bird’s nest. Do keep in mind that these products do not make your hair thicker, but what they do is add an illusion of thickness by making the hair more bouncy and fluffy.
If you are someone suffering from limp hair then the BBlunt Full On Volume Shampoo & Conditioner will definitely provide an oomph factor to your hair. I will recommend using both the shampoo and the conditioner together for best results. The shampoo is priced at INR 600 for a 400ml bottle while the conditioner is priced at INR 400 for a 200gm bottle. This is a pretty good deal when compared to the salon ranges of most brands. For years I have been looking for a shampoo that adds a bounce to my mane without stripping my hair completely dry, and have finally found an Indian brand which is affordable too! These products have become holy grail items for me and I am sure that if you have fine hair like mine then you too will fall in love with them.
I hope that this review was useful. You can buy the BBlunt Full On Volume Shampoo here and the BBlunt Full On Volume Conditioner here.
