My Experience with B: Blunt One Night Stand Temporary Hair Colour Blush Pink
Having loved their products for a while now and wanting to colour my hair without the consequences, I decided to purchase this. I hadn’t heard of any other colouring product that could be easily sprayed on, and was really excited to try it out. I thought this was a revolutionary product.
The process is pretty easy, one has to use this on dry hair. I washed my hair before I used this for better application and effect. The colour is nothing like ‘blush pink’ and has a metallic finish to it. One has to layer it on for the colour to show. I sectioned my hair first, brushed it thoroughly and applied my first layer of the spray. Post it drying up, I repeated the process of spraying the colour on. While the colour shows up well, it leaves the hair really dry and crunchy. The hair seems lifeless and I was so disappointed that I immediately washed it off. AS soon as it was washed off my hair, I could feel my hair regaining its original smoothness.
In terms of staying power, it is ridiculous. Even post drying, the colour transferred to my hands and clothes. Further, when I tried to brush through my hair to reduce the crunchiness, the colour started coming off. One doesn’t even need shampoo to wash it off. Even if it magically doesn’t dry your hair, it will wear off within a days’ time and transfer to not just your hands but maybe others as well. I am extremely disappointed with the product. For a student like me who is always on a budget, this felt like the worst decision of my life.
The packaging is its only saving grace and even it has its faults. While I love the design, the spray nozzle is extremely flimsy and of low quality. It got stuck while I hadn’t even finished covering half of my hair with colour and I thought it had finished off. I was about to throw it off, extremely disappointed with the quantity, when my friend stopped me and we spent a good 5-10 minutes trying to get a few more sprays out of the bottle. It is extremely sturdy and travel friendly. The packaging may make you believe that it is a high quality product but don’t be fooled. The packaging is just doing its job.
I wasn’t expecting the product to smell all rosy since it has a long list of chemicals, however was taken aback by the extremely strong and horrendous fragrance of the product. The product has a rancid smell, which might eventually wear off from your hair but makes the application process a horrible experience. Further, it leaves the room where the process was carried out smell horrendous.

Would I repurchase it?
Well, my review would have made it clear that my answer is going to a big no. However, I would sincerely urge the brand to better the product, it would really revolutionise the colouring process. I would give it 2/5 for being innovative and its cute packaging, but the product has a long way to go to get a score above that.
