    Comments about Garnier Ultra Color Hair Color:

    I used this produce to dye the blonde out of my hair and go back to more of my natural hair color, which is black. The blue black really came through and looks amazing. My hair felt moisturized after used and came out looking very vibrant and healthy. The only downside to this product is the string smell associated with the dye and it can get messy if not careful.

              I have dyed my hair black for years and this is the best boxed dye I've tried and is very affordable especially with the ulta coupons that come out monthly.

              Comments about Garnier Ultra Color Hair Color:

              I like to use Mahogany Brown during the cooler months and any lighter shade of brown during the summer (depends on my mood) but I always have great results with this product. I've been dying my hair for 15 years, used tons of different products, but this is simply the easiest to use with the best results. My hair is always glossy and smooth after and for weeks to follow. The color lasts. I typically have to dye again due to roots showing and not fading. The oil packet makes the scent tolerable instead of overwhelming, unlike other dyes. Only complaint is that they change their models & names of the colors too often. So if you tend to get used to looking for a particular face on the box you might be stumped. I'll continue to buy.

                  Comments about Garnier Ultra Color Hair Color:

                  I usually love Garnier's hair dye. I have auburn colored hair, so in order to override any red in my hair, I normally use "Soft Black." It turns my hair a nice shade of dark brown - a color that I love. The store was out of soft black, so I thought I would try this Ultra Blue Black. I thought...how different could it be than soft black?? Well, a lot different. I did an all-over dye, left it in for 25 minutes and then rinsed/washed my hair as the directions stated. Once my hair dried, I noticed I had missed splotches all over. There were huge spots that were still auburn colored and then huge spots that were black. Even though I dye my hair all of the time and never miss spots, I thought that it could have been my own error. I waited 2 days, bought another box, and dyed it all over again. This time the top half of my head is black and the bottom half is the dark-brown color that I love. I'm not sure if there is something in this specific dye that is not taking to my hair like it should or if it is just a poor product. Either way, half of my head is black and half is brown. I look ridiculous.

                    Comments about Garnier Ultra Color Hair Color:

                    I bought this product to help cover a few gray hairs, as well as, to even out my hair color. I was out in the sun a lot for quite a few months due to work and the noticed my hair was lighter on the ends mostly while the top was darker. It looked awful in my opinion. This product worked great and the color was very vibrant!!!

                    Comments about Garnier Ultra Color Hair Color:

                    I used two boxes and both barely covered my hair. Although the color looked great at first, i noticed my roots were bright blue. yikes. it faded a lot very quickly and my hair, after only 2 months, is erring towards being medium brown even though my hair was black prior to dying. i would recommend to those who have a medium brown or dark blonde hair color naturally.

                      For best results, leave in your hair for at least 30 minutes , but no loner than 45 minutes. The cost is reasonable.

                      Comments about Garnier Ultra Color Hair Color:

                      I've thin shoulder length dark brown-black hair,fair skin,electric blue eyes and near'n the big 5-0.Been wanting to try blue-black,something different and enhance eyes,I was floored at how beautiful the blue-black turned out,still get comments 2 mnths later.My biggest con & thought only an initial problem,when rinsing dye out 1st time,more color than w/other brands ran,but rinsed as directed until clear & proceeded.Wash my hair maybe 1x week,only wash if leaving house.Am stickler for using color safe-protect shampoo/conditioner by Kerastase/Redken,even 2 months later,4-6 washes,get'n color run off each & every wash,which never had w/other brands,maybe 1st-2nd time after initial rinse,but not each time,use clean white "turban" towel and it has slight bl-blk color stains each wash.Surprisingly the color retention,even with the prior issue, still holding,now more black than blue,first 3 wks were truest box color.Grays covered till 5th wash.Will buy again,just hope Garnier works on retaining blue equally as base black & overall fade factor to only improve this beautiful color for us dark haired maidens who can't/don't/won't get high-low lights due to cost & dark hair color(not much of "wow" or depth for dark haired ppl as say blondes,brunettes,etc...in my experience not worth the price/up keep for so little to no payoff)so products that affordably allow us to add depth & character w/o hundreds of dollars each 6 week chair visit is a valuable perk...at least to me.Try it.Okay your turn Garnier.

                      I was in the search for something permanent for my hair since the last products I used to dye my hair didn't last like i wanted to. So when I read Ultra, I thought it be the type of hair dye that would actually last that had "stronger" ingrediants. But I was wrong. I usually let the dye sit just a little longer then what it says on the box but it didnt even help. i felt like by the fifth wash it wasnt black anymore it was more dark brown. Not impressed with this product.
