Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Ultra Color BL21 - Reflective Blue Black
The Nutrisse Ultra Color series is exclusively designed to transform dark hair with ultra-reflective tones - in just one easy step!
The Nutrisse Ultra Color series is exclusively designed to transform dark hair with ultra-reflective tones - in just one easy step! Choose from four shade families: Ultra Intense Reds for visibly intense red tones on darker hair, Ultra Lightening Browns to take dark hair up to three shades lighter without the brassiness, Ultra Reflective Blacks to transform even the darkest hair with visibly reflective, shiny tones, and Ultra Lightening Blondes to lighten dark bases up to 4 levels without the brassiness.
How is it different?
Nutrisse Ultra Color has color-boost technology that nourishes while it dramatically lifts even the darkest hair. No bleach!
Is BL21 right for me?
Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color BL21, "Blue Black," is one shade level ligher than BL 11 with ultra reflective blue tones. It is best for anyone with natural hair between light brown and black.
If "Blue Black" is not for you, explore our other Ultra Color Black Shades: BL11, BL26, and BL33, or black shades in our classic Nutrisse range: shades 10, 11, 20, or 22.
*For women with currently colored hair, there are special considerations for the color result you can achieve. Because of this, we do not recommend shade BL 21 for hair that has been previously bleached, highlighted, or that is predominantly gray.

How to use:
Applying Nutrisse: Nourished Hair means Better Color
Nutrisse nourishes while it colors with a rich, non drip creme formula, and with an ampoule of grape seed oil, it smells great while you apply.
Follow this step-by-step process when applying full-head color at home:
1) Always do a skin test by following the insert instructions in the kit 48 hours before.
2) Apply to dry, unwashed hair.
3) Apply gloves, squeeze colorant (B) into developer bottle (A).
4) Break off the tip and shake the bottle vigorously.
5) Start applying mixture through roots first before spreading through mid-lengths and ends until hair is saturated. Leave formula on for 25 minutes.
6) Massage hair thoroughly before rinsing to optimize rinsing process.
7) Rinse hair thoroughly until water runs clear.
8) Apply Nourishing Conditioner (D) and leave on for two minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
If you only need a root touch-up, please follow insert Touch-Up Application instructions.
Always read insert instructions before applying any hair color.

A smoothing and silkening hair booster, Avocado Oil is loaded with plant-based fatty acids, which have a unique ability to penetrate for deep long-lasting effects. This rich indulgent ingredient helps to smooth split ends while adding a brilliant shine.
Olive Oil, which contains antioxidants, has been a high-performance beauty elixir for centuries. In hair care formulas it helps coat hair, leaving strands strong, glossy, and resilient. In face moisturizers, it soothes as it smoothes for glowing skin.
