    After using this, I went to my hairdresser and she loved it. The only negative is that it doesn't seem to last long; however, I am taking new vitamins and everything is growing faster, so that could be the problem.

      Comments about Garnier Olia Brilliant Color:

      I just dyed my hair with this tonight and it's the easiest and gentlest hair dye I've ever used! I've used L'Oréal mega reds from Sally's, L'Oréal box dyes, ion creme colors... Basically anything you can think of that a) cost more than this product and b) only irritated my scalp & damaged/ dried out my hair.
      Reasons I liked this:
      1) My hair is thick, so I thought I would need 2 boxes, but I didn't. I actually found myself with more dye than I needed. There's a LOT of dye in one box! Don't be fooled by the amount of product in the mixing bottle.... a little goes a long way!
      2) I loved the smell of this. In other reviews I read, people said it smells like flowers, and I was like there's no way... but it does. It's the weirdest thing.
      3) This didn't irritate my scalp at. all. Pretty much any and all hair dyes irritate my scalp so I expected this one to as well, but no irritation at all.
      4) The color is absolutely beautiful and my hair is shiny and feels SUPER soft.
      5) The price is wallet-friendly.

      Overall this is great so far. The only con I could possibly write about it is that when you're rinsing the dye out in the shower, be prepared to need to scrub your tub afterwards! It gets SUPER messy in the shower. But I just took a sponge to it while I was in there so it wasn't a big deal. Kill 2 birds with one stone, right?
      I really hope the color lasts. Fingers crossed!

        The color 7.0 Dark Blonde is a beautiful neutral blonde shade (not too golden or too ash). It is very natural looking and the color lasts great. I'm so glad the product does not have ammonia. It covers gray hair perfectly and is easy to apply and smells nice. A true winner! I hope that Garnier keeps making it.

        Easier on the 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.

            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.
