As you all know, due to premature greying, I have been colouring my hair since quite a few years now. To reduce the damage caused by frequent colouring, I opted for ammonia-free hair colour but despite that, my hair did lose it’s shine and become dull. And I’m sure there would be several other girls like me who face this problem because hair colour does tend to make the hair a bit dry and lack-luster.
Which is why, BBlunt – the hair care brand started by Adhuna Bhabani who revolutionised the way hair was cut when she opened her first salon at Kemps Corner in 1998 – has launched a hair colour that gives salon-like colour and shine in it’s at-home hair colour, which, by the way is very affordably priced!

About the BBlunt Salon Secret High Shine Creme Hair Colour
“While all other hair colours leave your hair dull, this revolutionary at-home hair colour gives you soft, shiny hair and colour that lasts up to 4 to 6 weeks. Specially created for the Indian skin tones, this no ammonia hair colour gives 100% grey coverage, lasts long and is available in 7 blockbuster shades. This 3-part hair colour comes with a unique Shine Tonic, enriched with Silk Proteins that gives salon like gorgeous hair at-home!
Shine Tonic, is the secret ingredient to be mixed with the colourant and developer in the bowl. Apply the smooth and fragrant, non-drip blend for glossy, epic shiny hair.”
The BBlunt Salon Secret Hair Colour comes in 7 shades, all of which have been developed specifically to suit the Indian skintone.
- Black – NATURAL BLACK 1
- Chocolate – DARK BROWN 3
- Blueberry – BLUE BLACK 2.10
- Honey – LIGHT GOLDEN BROWN 5.32
- Wine – DEEP BURGUNDY 4.20
- Mahogany – REDDISH BROWN 4.56
- Coffee – NATURAL BROWN 4.31
Since I have been colouring my hair since quite a while and needed to touch up the roots with a shade similar to the one I already had on, I chose Chocolate which is a rich, deep, dark brown – think melted Bournville chocolate.
The BBlunt Salon Secret Hair Colour is really easy to apply at home. All you need to do is mix the colourant and the developer as well as the Shine Tonic, apply to the hair (or just the roots as your requirement may be), leave on for 30 minutes, emulsify and rinse off and shampoo and condition as usual. Unlike all other hair colours that leave you guessing about the quantity of product to use when you only need to touch up the roots, the BBlunt Salon Secret Hair Colour has markings on the tube so you know exactly how much to squeeze out. I found that really helpful because otherwise, I end up with a lot of wasted hair colour.
As you all probably know by now, I was lucky to be able to try out the Salon Secret Hair Colour before it was actually launched. And not only try it out, I also did a how-to colour your hair tutorial with them! Check out the video here…
What I really love about the BBlunt Salon Secret Hair Colour is that the shine actually lasts for as long as the colour does and doesn’t fade away after just a couple of washes. It is not a gimmicky thing where your hair looks shiny when you colour it initially but starts looking dull and lacklustre after a few days. The Shine Tonic actually does work and the hair stays shiny right up to the next application! My first Salon Secret application (the one in this video) was on the 25th of July and I did a root touch up on the 19th of this month (yes, I need to touch up my roots every 3 weeks). In all that while, the colour hadn’t faded and the shine was intact – and you can check that in all my pictures on social media.
The other thing that is wonderful about the BBlunt Salon Secret Hair Colour is it’s price! Such good quality and shine at
₹225 ₹199! With other ammonia-free hair colours costing much more than this, BBlunt has a clear winner on it’s hands here.
