Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Nourishing Color Creme dramatically transforms naturally dark hair with ultra reflective tones. Choose from Ultra Light Blondes, Ultra Intense Reds and Burgundies, Ultra Lightening Browns, and Ultra Reflective Blacks. Ultra Light Blondes take dark brunettes to blonde without bleach, Ultra Intense Reds and Ultra Intense Burgundies offer vibrant red tones for darker hair, Ultra Lightening Browns lift dark hair up to three shades lighter without the brassiness, and Ultra Reflective Blacks transform even the darkest hair with visibly reflective, shiny tones. Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Nourishing Color Creme comes with an ampoule of grapeseed oil to start nourishing hair while you color because nourished hair means better color. The non-drip hair color formula spreads easily and the after-color conditioner is infused with 3 fruit oils--avocado, olive and shea--for silkier, shinier, more nourished hair.

    This product felt gentle, wasn't smelly. It's basically a bleach, but way less damaging than other brands I have used such as Spaltz and such. It's the best box color I tried. Closest to salon quality you'll get but still can't beat a salon booking! Haha.

    Extremely disappointed

    By Ash

    from DE

    Comments about Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color:

    I have been using Garnier hair dye for almost 10 years. Not once have I had problems till I tried this one. First of all, after 30 mins of rinsing, 2 showers, and 4 shampoos, the water I wring out of my hair is bright pink. Second of all, the dye stained my scalp along my hairline and won't wash off after all the rinsing, shampooing, and I even used nailpolish remover with no luck. Furthermore, and this is mainly my fault, my hair picked up mostly red pigment so my hair is now a bright red, not the more purple shade of burgundy I hoped for. Extremely disappointed that my hair looks cheap and unnatural. Will definitely not be purchasing again.

                Comments about Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color:

                I got so tired of purple-blacks pulling red after a couple washes that I just switched to blue blacks. This dye gives a really pretty shiny raven blue-black. It has the usual dark dye bleeding, but holds fairly well and lasts a while if you're gentle with it. Like most Garnier products it smells better than most dyes and the included conditioner leaves hair super silky. No burning or itching during application, and I had enough dye to thoroughly coat my shoulder-length hair.

                I have an obsession with purple. Especially purple hair. But I have been a redhead for most of my adult life (decades) and my fine hair does not appreciate being tortured with bleach. So when this new Garnier Ultra Violet was on the shelf at Ulta, I grabbed 2 boxes ecstatically. I drive home and colored my hair according to the instructions. I let my hair air dry (good tip for freshly colored hair; heat can fade it out), so I did not really know if it was purple yet. It was darker. Once my hair dried, it was a very pretty cherry red with pinkish highlights. Bing cherry, not Maraschino. I didn't have highlights before, so where they came from, IDK, but I like it. Very, very glossy. All in all, I am happy but still on a quest for purple hair without bleach. If you have a recommendation, please let me know.

                    A:

                    Hi, Clair! Our Ultra Color Line is suitable for naturally dark hair. Most of the shades does not contain bleach but contain a higher developer in order to lighten your hair. The lightest shade, PL1 Lightest Platinum, does contain bleach though. If you are trying to do an ombre, we do not recommend this because we have only tested this as a full head or touch up application. The time and results would be different if you plan to use this product for an ombre hair style.

                    Hi Nelly31! It is possible that if you put IN1 Dark Intense Indigo over an auburn haircolor, the result could look purple. We recommend that you neutralize the red first with Nutrisse 50 Medium Brown. As long as your hair is in good condition you can use IN1 48 hours later.

                    Since this color is made to lighten natural hair up to 4 shades lighter than its starting color, it should make blonde hair very light.

                    A:

                    The Nutrisse Ultra Color shade IN1,Dark Intense Indigo is best for anyone with natural hair between Light Brown and Darkest Brown. On the dark hair you will achieve ultra bold indigo reflects but on any hair that has lightened to a shade lighter than a light brown, the results may look more faded or discolored. Hair that has a lot of yellow (most blondes) covered with a blue shade will look green. (yellow and blue always make green).

                  I have dark brown hair that's difficult to dye and ends up brassy. I don't really want to go to a salon and spend so much on hair that would eventually grow back to its original color. I'd like to try the LB1 but would it end up brassy on my hair? I've heard that this is good for dark hair...

                    A:

                    Nutrisse Ultra Color LB1, Ultra Light Cool Blonde, was specially formulated to lighten up to four levels without bleach. It is best for anyone with natural hair between light brown and darkest brown that wants to achieve a cooler toned blonde. The darker the natural hair, the more warmth will appear in the final result.
                    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 LB1 for use over hair that has been bleached, highlighted, hair that is predominantly gray, or if you have recently colored your hair "Dark Blonde" or darker.

                    A:

                    Switching brands of hair color is not a problem, however, be sure to continue to apply your new color following the touch up directions. The new growth needs the full time to process, but the previously dyed ends only need the last 5-10 minutes of the process to pick up enough color.
                    However, if you're trying to use a lighter shade over hair that has been dyed with a darker color, the dark dye has to be removed from the hair before you can go lighter,
