Garnier Olia Permanent Hair Colour 9.0 Light Blonde
Best I've Ever Tried
6 months ago i went to the hairdresses and they dyed my hair blonde. Since then i haven't been able to find any colour to match the colour. I don't like going to the hairdressers as they often pull my hair and damage it further, especially because my hair is curly and fine i find they are too rough with it when brushing and drying etc.
Yesterday i dyed my hair with this colour and was amazed. First of all price, middle of the range, the introductory price(5.99) makes it cheaper than most although even at 6.99 it is affordable.
The appearance and packaging is beautiful, one of the prettiest and sleekest i have ever seen. The applicator bottle is great, it's design makes it easy to hold and you can reach the roots very well.
The dye smells great, i have previously felt nauseous before because of the chemical smell but this dye smells delicious!! No chemical smells at all which i really liked and have never found before!
The final colour is really natural, my hair feels really healthy and still smells great.
The only thing i would say is that it would be wise to leave the colour on for longer than they suggest. I left my root for 30 mins and then i dyed the rest of my hair and left that for 20 mins. Also make sure you wash out all the conditioner-i was in a rush and didn't and my hair felt slightly crispy!

Not as good as expected
I had recently had my shoulder length hair cut a lot shorter to remove my dry ends after bleaching so I was looking for a really conditioning colour and was delighted to find this product thinking it would be much more gentle on my hair that other permanent colours.
The preparation and application was easy although I would have expected the cream to feel creamier than it did, it actually felt quite sticky and drying. I left on for 30 mins then showered off and again I could tell my hair felt dry. I used the conditioner which is lovely and helped and once I had dried my hair it did not feel quite so dry.
The colour is really good, a nice light blonde, mine is lighter than on the pack because I already have bleach in my hair but it is a lovely shade and shines too.
The root coverage is excellent, my roots are a light/meduim brown with bits of grey and the roots match the rest of my hair now perfectly.
I would say this product does boost colour but is no better than many other light blonde dyes. I would use again but would be equally happy to use other brands. Not quite as good as I hoped. Maybe my hair will feel better after it's next wash and another good condition.
