I’ve finally had the time to dye my hair with the new Garnier Olia hair colour I had previously blogged about! I’ve read some mixed reviews so I’m glad I finally tried it out to share my opinion!
Hmm, there’s quite a bit to cover, so let’s start with packaging. I love the packaging of the box dye. It’s very fresh and different to all the other hair dyes you find in the Supermarket! Kinda.. stands out.
The best thing about it is that it markets exactly what it is. Let me recap for my newer readers, or those who missed my last Garnier post.
Garnier Olia uses ODS technology by using four flower oils – camellia, sunflower, passionflower and limnanthes alba to propel colour deep into the hair fibre! In simplier words, it is boxed hair dye powered by oil, INSTEAD of ammonia!!
Less split ends (dry ends) and less damaged hair!
The process is just like any other boxed hair dye.
3 SIMPLE STEPS!
My overall opinion on the product
I found that the application of the dye was much smoother than the average box hair dye. I’m assuming this is thanks to the oils added in the colour mixture. I found that combing my hair during application was a lot easier. Usually, I would be tugging onto my hair and pulling off lots of hair during application!
One thing I must mention though, is that I found my bathroom didn’t smell like poison during application! My mum was pleasantly surprised too!
I ordered a “4.0 Brown” for myself because box hair dyes normally come out a lot darker than expected. However, I was pleasantly surprised as I stared at myself in the mirror when drying my hair.
I love that the results could almost pull off as a “salon” job!! I dyed the back of my hair myself and it almost seems perfect! Last time I used a box hair dye (by myself), I left a huge spot at the back of my head!
I expected “hands will slide off my hair” finish, to which.. I was obviously disappointed. But that being said, I suppose my hair feels a lot softer than after using an “Ammonia” box hair dye. Also knowing I didn’t put my hair through all the chemicals makes me feel a lot better.
I don’t think you should expect your hair to feel like you just had a Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment done, but in the long run, if you continue using Garnier Olia, I feel like it will make a difference :)
If you want to dye your hair a lighter colour perhaps, but you’re too scared to damage your hair with Ammonia and bleach, make sure you try this product!!
