HOW IT LOOKS/FEELS:
The B:Blunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave-In Serum (Rs 450 for 150 gms) comes in a convenient to use bottle that is based on pump dispenser mechanism. The pump has a lock mechanism so you don’t accidentally pump out any excess product. It is not a thick or heavy cream – but somewhat like a mousse that is somewhere in the mid-point of being runny and thick. The pearly white cream has a semi-thick consistency, similar to a regular conditioner. The difference, however, is in the usage, where most of the conditioners have to be rinsed-off, this leave-in cream remains in your hair until next shampoo. The mild perfumed fragrance vanishes (though not fully) within an hour of application.
LIKE DISLIKE IT:
While the B:Blunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave-In Serum does protect against pollution and heat-styling damage, and does leave your hair smooth – it also leaves it limp. I experimented with this leave-in cream with and without applying conditioner. Though it worked almost the same in both tests but without conditioner was a much better idea as it left my really curly hair looking like half-done beach waves. Hair does look manageable – but somehow loses ‘character’ – if you know what I mean. This product softens and smoothens hair – and so is perhaps ideal for people who have got chemical straightening done. I am personally not such a big fan of straight hair so I don’t think I am going to buy another bottle of the product because it definitely killed the volume and my natural curls. Also, this would perhaps work for those who are in the habit of using hair styling equipment such as irons or tongs often. Perhaps it would enhance a sleek look on poker-straight or straightened hair.
- Easy to apply

HOW TO APPLY:
Works best on damp, towel dried hair. Take a small quantity into your palms. Apply evenly, focusing on mid-lengths & ends, keeping away from the scalp. Style as desired.
