Garnier Olia is unlike any other traditional, permanent hair color. Powered by a 60% oil blend formula with natural flower oils, Olia propels colorants deep into the hair, giving you vivid color results and 100% gray coverage. The non-drip formula has no ammonia, so it smells great as you apply, and the oils help to reverse roughness and dullness. The end result? More brilliant, long-lasting color and hair that is hydrated, silky, and up to 3x shinier than uncolored, unwashed hair. What’s in the hair dye kit? A developer tube, a colorant tube, after color conditioner, as well as a set of gloves and the instruction sheet.

Review for: 1.0 - Black more...
Okay so my hair is naturally a very dark brown, I had dyed my hair blonde about a year ago and have cut off most of it. However I still have light tips and some highlights of light brown. I decided to buy black and do an all over color. I always buy Garnier products and end up very happy. I bought this one seeing it was new and reading a few reviews stating that it did a wonderful job of keeping hydrated. So I go to dye my hair, I tested an area kept it for about 5 mins or so and all
Seemed fine. So I finish the rest and about 20 mins into waiting it starts to burn on my roots, not a terrible burn but something uncomfortable. I decide to wash it out and dry. The color was there but no shine. It made my hair dry and hard to work with afterwards. It took about 6/7 washes before it felt somewhat ok. I ended up getting a protein care done and that seemed to help. I’m don’t recommend this at all!!

I used to get my hair colored in the salon, and don't get me wrong! My hairstylist was amazing and did an awesome job (the color she used was Redken Color and bayalage). However, I got tired of how expensive it was and how often I would have to do it (which made it even more expensive!), but more importantly I got tired of the chemicals I was constantly exposing myself to. That's when I decided to go on a hunt for a great color brand that was also ammonia-free...and I found Olia :) Garnier already has a great reputation for awesome hair color products, so that rep paired with an ammonia-free less harsh hair color product was just what I needed! The color is easy to mix and apply. The smell is great (yes, it actually smells good). And the outcome is very close to what the box says - AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES FOR WHAT TYPE OF COLOR YOU SHOULD USE!! Don't go from dark brown to light blonde...just like what any hair color product recommends. Lastly, the hair conditioner is awesome and makes me hair feel as though it was never colored in the first place. Just a little advice: you may need to leave the blonde colors on slightly longer if you are naturally a darker blonde, as it could have a slight brassy tone to it if you don't. Of course talk to a Garnier pro on their site though first!

I always use garnier for my permanent hair coloring because they add a lot of moisture to my hair and make my curls pop when I wash it out. I bleached the ends of my hair recently and then I used the auburn to blend the middle of my hair to my roots. I like the color that it is in the sun, but it's definitely not the color I expected from the pictures on the box. Since I have dark hair I looked at the before and after pictures and it was supposed to be decently red and it really wasn't, but the package didn't tell meta bleach my hair before coloring either.

I have used this hair color in Dark Brown and it is pretty amazing! Easy to use, even for dummies like myself who can barely do anything right lol. Covers my gray for a good couple of weeks before i have to retouch. I like that the smell isn't strong so I'm not about to pass out as I am coloring my hair and it doesn't irritate my scalp, like some other hairdyes have in the past. I've used this color a few times now and will continue to purchase since it is gentle on my scalp.

Review for: 3 Pk, Garnier Olia Oil Powered Permanent Haircolor, 5.5 Medium Mahogany more...
Love this hair color. It was a rich creme that was easy to mix and easy to apply. It colored the grays 100% and gave me a beautiful, natural blonde color with zero brassiness and tons of shine. My hair felt super healthy and soft after coloring. My only complaint, and it's surprising - in that the amount of coloring solution seemed especially generous - was that I wished there was a bit more. This may be because the mixed solution is so rich and creamy, it didn't cover quite the amount of area I thought it would. Normally, I won't use the conditioner provided with a hair coloring product, preferring to use my own salon quality brand, but was so pleased with the color application that I decided to give the conditioner a try, too. It had a nice creamy texture and made my hair instantly silky. It smelled nice, too. Overall, just really pleased with this hair color product and will definitely use it again.

This isn't my go-to product for hair care and hair color but I love to text her and they include a scented oil packet which really makes the whole experience of coloring your hair a lot more comfortable and a lot more fun. 1 things I like about this brand is that when you look at the picture on the front of the box so far it's been pretty close to what I actually gets out of the box. And if any of you guys have colored your hair at home you know that the color on the front of the box is almost never what actually happens on your head. So if you like to color your hair but hate that really bad chemical sent that comes with it definitely give these guys to try you'll probably really enjoy this experience a lot more.

I tried the Rose Gold from the #complimentaries of #Influenster #Thankyou #Free #trial and absolutely love it! It didn't dry my hair out and actually made it look softer and healthier looking. Loved it didn't have a strong smell to it either! Going to keep getting this brand when I color my hair! #Garnier #hairdye #RoseGold

Love this hair dye! great price, purchased at Walmart! Leaves my hair extra soft & shiny! The color matches mine to the t! i like this brand compared to others due to the non ammonia smell & it does not dry out my hair. I use this every 3-4 weeks to cover my grays! It is 100% gray coverage guaranteed and i agree!

Review for: 5.60 - Medium Garnet Red more...
In my humble opinion, one of the best if not THE best drugstore hair dye. It has no smell which is great for people who are sensative to smells. The application bottle is different than the usual ones but its not a bad thing. I enjoy it, and it comes with alot of product. I also love the fact that it comes with black gloves. Makes me feel more professional lol. Its the little things that a company does to go the extra mile. I will say it is a little more price wise than the rest. But worth it!

If you never dyed your hair before, I suggest using Olia because it comes with everything: the dye, conditioner and gloves. The instructions are straight forward and so simple to follow. It took 30 minutes to get my green hair black and my hair looks so healthy to after using the conditioner. There’s no harsh chemical scent either which is a major plus!

Has anyone tried this! How's the color payoff? Would love to know, I haven't tried the Olia line. Also does it dry out your hair super bad?
