The unique oil-based formula propels colorants deep into the hair without ammonia, for pure, vivid, long-lasting color. Olia achieves maximum color performance while the oils help reverse roughness and dullness, visibly improving and restoring hair.

    Comments about Garnier Olia Brilliant Color:

    I started using this product 6 months ago because the hair dye I had been using for the last 10 years was drying my hair out so much I was desperate to find something that would not damage my hair as much. I have a lot of grey hair and I have to dye my hair every 3 weeks to keep the grey hair at bay. I will definitely say that this product does not dry my hair out as much as the former hair dye I used but it is harder to apply to my hair. It is not as easy to smooth throughout my hair because is it sticky. It is also really hard to rinse out of my hair but I found a solution to this problem that makes it easier. I stick one side of my head directly under the shower head and use a wide-toothed comb to comb my hair while it is being doused with water. This makes it a lot easier to get the dye out of my hair. I use the medium golden brown color and I believe the resulting color is closer to my natural hair color than the results I got from the hair dye I used to use. I will warn though that it does not lighten as much as other hair dyes I have tried. I'm OK with that but want other people to know that you will not be able to drastically lighten your hair with this brand of hair dye. Even though the amount of product in each box looked to be the same amount as other hair dyes I have used, I found that it was not as much product. If you have really long, thick hair and are doing a all over color, you may need two boxes of this dye to ensure complete coverage. One box is fine for touching up roots. I think the oils that they use in this product really contribute to the fact that it does not dry my hair out as much as the hair dye I used to use. Although it is not a perfect product, it is better than what I was previously using so I will continue to use this product.

    Comments about Garnier Olia Brilliant Color:

    Don't buy it. It dried out my hair and scalp.My hair feels like a straw. It leaves residue on your hair for months. I didn't realized it has mineral oil! That's bad for hair and skin!
    And the conditioner didn't help with dryness , it made it worse. So disappointed with it.

        Comments about Garnier Olia Brilliant Color:

        Used this for my sisters hair and she loved it because most dyes don't take her fully jet black, it's more of a soft black. This product took her the whole way. The only thing is that you have to give the products time to mix, if you don't shake it well.

        I like this product. My only complaint is the shape of the bottle. It's really hard to hold on too and kept slipping out of my hand. Other than that, it's really great!

          Comments about Garnier Olia Brilliant Color:

          Olia by Garnier does not irritate my sensitive scalp. It rinses out well and the conditioner helps to detangle and smooth my hair. The "black" shade I purchased is natural for my skin color, rather than harsh.
