Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Nourishing Color Creme dramatically transforms naturally dark hair with ultra reflective tones. Choose from Ultra Light Blondes, Ultra Intense Reds and Burgundies, Ultra Lightening Browns, and Ultra Reflective Blacks. Ultra Light Blondes take dark brunettes to blonde without bleach, Ultra Intense Reds and Ultra Intense Burgundies offer vibrant red tones for darker hair, Ultra Lightening Browns lift dark hair up to three shades lighter without the brassiness, and Ultra Reflective Blacks transform even the darkest hair with visibly reflective, shiny tones. Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Nourishing Color Creme comes with an ampoule of grapeseed oil to start nourishing hair while you color because nourished hair means better color. The non-drip hair color formula spreads easily and the after-color conditioner is infused with 3 fruit oils--avocado, olive and shea--for silkier, shinier, more nourished hair.
Always refer to insert inside product for detailed application instructions.

                Comments about Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color:

                This kit in Pure Platinum is fantastic. It's the best bleach I've used, it completely neutralizes the red in my hair, and gets my hair literally to a pure platinum color (almost white), and processes quickly. My hair is naturally on the cusp of dark blond-brown, with heavy red. The lilac colored conditioner is a nice touch, though it's not a true "purple conditioner". In my opinion, it's not pigmented enough to do any real toning, but my hair isn't left brassy anyway. It does however leave my hair feeling amazing, and I get a lot of use out of the tube.

                While the fantastic results are worth it, and none of these cons really bother me, I can think of a few. I don't feel like you get a lot of product; I let my roots go for a while (maybe an inch & a half) and struggle to stretch one bottle for my whole head. I think part of the reason for that is my next con: it dries on my hair really quickly, making it really hard to see which areas are saturated before it starts developing, as well as difficult to move my hair around to double check for missed spots.

                I would not say this is a beginner friendly product, but that goes for all at home bleaching.... Though I guess you have to start somewhere, right?

                  Comments about Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color:

                  I have dark brown hair and have dyed my hair myself at least a dozen times, as I sometimes like to add a tint of red for the fall and winter. I love Garnier shampoo and conditioners so I figured I'd give their deep burgundy hair color a try. Big mistake. I'm not exaggerating when I say there's not a single hint of red in my hair. If anything, it's a slightly darker brown. I'll stick to the other, slightly more expensive brands I've tried. Very bummed.

                    I have light to medium brown hair, but it has been dyed a lot over the years. I've been using a dark blonde to lighten it up a bit, but it always comes out brassy. Can I use the platinum blonde to get the red out and then use a medium shade to get to a true blonde?

                      A:

                      Hi DB! Brown hair has natural red undertones. To minimize the red undertones, we would recommend using "Dark Beige Blonde". Cool shades, like "Ash" or "Beige" are the shades that tones down the the red. Because your natutal color is medium brown, you are always going to see those brassy tones. If you bleach to platinum, you'll have to maintain it that way! We hope this information is helpful.

                      A:

                      The Nutrisse Ultra Color Dark Intense Indigo IN1 is best for anyone with natural hair between Light Brown and Darkest Brown. So on your natural hair this shade is a great choice. However, hair that has been previously colored can affect the final results. In this case, you hair has a bright red shade in it. Since red and blue make purple, its very likely your final result will have more of a purple look to it.
                      When applying hair dye to previously colored hair be sure to follow the touch up directions. Since the previously dyed hair will grab color so much faster than the new growth at the roots, we only recommend leaving the haircolor on the previously dyed hair for 5 minutes at the end of your timing. This produces the best results root to tip and keeps the hair from coming out too dark or with an extreme result.

                      A:

                      Hi, Clair! Our Ultra Color Line is suitable for naturally dark hair. Most of the shades does not contain bleach but contain a higher developer in order to lighten your hair. The lightest shade, PL1 Lightest Platinum, does contain bleach though. If you are trying to do an ombre, we do not recommend this because we have only tested this as a full head or touch up application. The time and results would be different if you plan to use this product for an ombre hair style.

                      Hi Nelly31! It is possible that if you put IN1 Dark Intense Indigo over an auburn haircolor, the result could look purple. We recommend that you neutralize the red first with Nutrisse 50 Medium Brown. As long as your hair is in good condition you can use IN1 48 hours later.

                      Since this color is made to lighten natural hair up to 4 shades lighter than its starting color, it should make blonde hair very light.

                    I have naturally black hair but it fades out to a blonde ombré.. if I use the Indigo color will it change my blonde to green? or will it just make the blue stand out more?

                      A:

                      The Nutrisse Ultra Color shade IN1,Dark Intense Indigo is best for anyone with natural hair between Light Brown and Darkest Brown. On the dark hair you will achieve ultra bold indigo reflects but on any hair that has lightened to a shade lighter than a light brown, the results may look more faded or discolored. Hair that has a lot of yellow (most blondes) covered with a blue shade will look green. (yellow and blue always make green).
