It is very good just that it does not look natural because the hair fits me opaque and I wear it like 1 1/2 I like it because it does not have ammonia, but what I do not like is that I have no shine in my hair .

      I used to go to the stylist to color my hair, but I wanted to save money so I started coloring myself. I tried other brands & types, cream, foam, etc, but Olía was the best. I have stubborn grey hair and this product covers and is long lasting. I will recommend it.

                For many years, I used L'Oréal Preference. After a sad experience with a few bad batches of their hair color, I tried Olia. It smells much better than L'Oréal, the color lasts longer and it's much less harsh on my thick, medium textured hair. Great product!

                    I loved that the colour was a true ash blond without being grey. Also not a hint along brasiness in sight, which is hard to do achieve sometimes. I'll be using this again!

                        Hi, Meghan! If your hair is naturally dark brown, the lightest you can go with Olia is in the Light Brown range. However, if your hair is color treated dark brown, you may not see the same shade like the box because hair color cannot lighten another hair color. If you would like a personalized consultation, do not hesitate to call us at our toll free number!

                        A:

                        Permanent hair color does not make hair oily. You may not need to shampoo as frequently when you color the hair but you will never have to shampoo more frequently.

                    • Q:

                      Can you mix two different shades together? I have stubborn gray roots so I use a medium brown to cover but a little bit too dark for the rest of my hair. What would you suggest? I was thinking about using a golden warm brown for the rest of my hair. I'm 60 year old so I don't want that solid brown color.Thank you

                        A:

                        While you can't physically mix 2 shades into one developer bottle, if you want to use a medium brown on the roots and a light brown in the last 10 minutes of your timing to refresh the color on the previously dyed hair, that's fine. If you go that route, mix up both colors at the same time and leave the top off the developer bottle of the light brown until its time to refresh the color on the ends of the hair. This will keep the mixture from over heating in the bottle.

                    • Q:

                      I recently purchased at my Local Ulta store, Garnier Olia 6.43 Light Natural Auburn hair color. I am now trying to order the same color from Ulta.com, However, although the graphics show this color as 6.43 Light Natural Auburn, when I try to add it to my order, the color shows as 6.35 Light Natural Auburn. Why is there a difference in the color number, but not in the color name? Which is correct. How do both colors compare?

                        Hello Claire! The 6.43 is the Light Natural Auburn. The 6.35 is the Light Chestnut Brown. The 6.35 Light Chestnut Brown has been discontinued. The difference between the colors is that the 6.43 has copper and gold undertones in it and the 6.35 had gold and mahogany in the product.
