Garnier Olia Hair Dye Review

I was lucky to win the Garnier Olia Hair Dye which I have actually used in the past but never got a chance to review it properly. This hair dye is permanent and it does not contain ammonia which basically means it slightly more hair friendly compared to your usual hair dyes. I always get dark brown which is 3.0 and believe it or not the reason I dye my hair is because I have grey hairs. No, it doesn't mean your old - its just DNA. This retails for around 10.00EU but in fairness it does contain quite a lot of product. Most cheap hair dyes that are under 5.00EU usually only contain half the amount and you are forced to buy a second bottle, so don't let price affect your judgement.

You get 60g of Developer Cream which is the big tube that says number 1 if you look at the photo closely. My only complaint with that is that it must only have half the product in or the packaging is too big for the amount of developer cream. If you buy this product you will have noticed it also literally half the tub is air and is very misleading. The actual Hair Colour Cream is 60g, this is the photograph that says number 2. You are given some black hair gloves which are really great quality and a small hair mask number 3 which I never use. (I never use the hair masks hair dyes give you, I usually just use my own hair dye.) Of course a leaflet is also in the box with your usual directions and minutes you need to keep your dye on for.

I used two hair dyes for medium length hair,I could have gotten away with one mainly if I was focusing on my roots however I decided since I had a spare one to place it all over. The great thing is that it does not smell and it does not leave that smell on your hair after you have washed it. The mixture is quite watery and once applied it needs to stay on for 35 minutes. Usually when I dye my hair a lot of hair tends to fall out in the bath when I am washing it, I can definitely say there was less hair that fell out with this dye. The colour has come out black brown , probably after a few washes it will fade out and look more natural (that is how I prefer it). Overall I am pleased with the result and the items and I would be buying this again. In general I have stopped buying full on chemical hair dyes and I tend to buy more natural ones and its great to know I can now have that option in my local supermarket. My hair is very shiny however I will be washing it on a daily basis to get rid of that freshly dyed colour so it looks more natural (this is something I do with all hair dyes). If you have any questions regarding this product, leave a comment below.
