      Comments about Garnier Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color:

      I've used this twice and both times it irritated my scalp and gave me little welts. However, the color is good and it covers gray. If you have a tough scalp it might be a good choice, but I won't be using it again.

            I love the smell, how easy the make the mixing process and applications. It covered my gray but not the highlights I had previously. That could have been my fault though. Leaves the hair feeling moisturized. Definitely recommend this product.

                Comments about Garnier Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color:

                I used the color Dark Intense Auburn.

                When Garnier first came out with this product I was super excited to try it. Their other dyes don't smell great, but they have always been good to my hair. Oil powered? Not harsh? Sign me up!

                Well, it didn't end well. The applicator is pretty, but the shape is not easy to hold while wearing gloves. I had to strip down for fear of ruining my clothes from dropping the applicator and there may or may not be a couple small, permanent stains on the sink.

                The color applies evenly, but during the rinsing process I noticed that my hair didn't feel right. It felt stringy and fragile. It still felt the same way after drying, and it was difficult to get a brush through it because it had completely altered the texture of my hair. Luckily that effect didn't last long. It had nice shine, but it wasn't nearly as dark as advertised and it faded quickly and turned a pretty gross orangy color after about two weeks.

                I'm back to Nutrisse again. Specifically Nutrisse Ultra-Color in Deepest Intense Burgundy.

                    I have dark blonde hair and wanted to go burgundy. I had good luck with Feria's "Chocolate Cherry" color but it faded to brown after just a little bit. The Garnier Olia Garnet Red looked closer to what I wanted. Indeed, the red is much more vibrant, but unfortunately I ran out of color after only getting the top of my head done. My hair is thick but only chin length. I tried to get color through the rest of my hair but in the end I had to go back to the store to get a second box. Not sure if I will use this again, I'll have to see how it lasts. I don't want to have to pay for two boxes every time I color.

                      I've used Garnier Nutrisse hair color with Avocado oil many times and now decided to try this line. Very disappointed. This product does not last, made my hair dry in freezy, so-so gray coverage and keeps bleeding and messing up my towels even after several shampooings. I will have to color my hair in 2 weeks again which is not good. Will never buy it again.

                      Comments about Garnier Olia Oil-Powered Permanent Color:

                      I never write reviews. But I was so surprised by the other reviews that I wanted to add my comments. I thought Olia covered my grey so much better than other products that I used or even when I had it done professionally. Also, I felt that it lasted so much longer. Previously, right after coloring I would still see some greys. Also, other permanent colors would still seem to wear off in badly grey areas. Neither of these problems happened. It covered so much better and lasted so much longer. I am about to use it today for the 2nd time. I hope I have the same results. The one problem was it is messier and does stain counter tops more. I need to be more careful with my application.
