I really really like this product. It doesn't dry out the hair. Hair comes out soft and very shiny. Easy to use. I really like it. Unfortunately it really didn't lighten my almost black hair but very very slightly. It kind of took the edge off the black. I used Natural Light Brown. On the box, the color of the hair is VERY light. But on me... it didn't lighten .... maybe i need to keep doing it? I don't know. Loreal Performing Preference is a crappy product overall but at least it DOES lighten the hair to what the box color shows. Unfortunately. I will buy this product again maybe for just the shine i get.... Sigh...
I use the Chamomile 10.0 on fading (natural) medium Auburn hair that I've been lightening with blonde hair color for the last year or so. The Nutrisse is much gentler than Clairol or Loreal products and the Chamomile shade is neutral and lightens it subtly with no surprises; not a 'golden' shade that pulls more red (it is auburn naturally) nor a 'cool' shade that is ashy and might turn it green or gray. This lightens it to a strawberry blonde shade which is the effect I want.
I don't get scalp itch or burn when the product is on my head either which is a plus. I usually have some type of reaction to other color brands, not severe but enough to cause discomfort and there is absolutely none with Garnier. I use it every 4 weeks because of rapid hair growth and this does not dry out my hair either. The conditioner is great but it's only a packet size for one use. I highly recommend this product and I hope they do not discontinue it.
I used this in shade chamomile after reading the great reviews on here and anna saccone review on YouTube. I am happy with the results although I will leave the mix on longer next time. My hair is naturally light brown but was very blonde as a child. I normally get my hair highlighted every 8 weeks but was looking for a cheaper alternative. When I first put mixture on my head I felt a tingling sensation but nothing too bad. I rinsed off after 30 mins and my roots looked quite orangey.. BUT after a few days and washes the colour has settled to a nice light beigey blonde that blends well with my highlights. I think next time ill leave on my roots for 40 mins to see if I can avoid the 'hot roots' - overall v happy with colour- hair doesn't feel too dry and everyone loves the colour! My hubby said it looks better than when I go to the hairdressers!!!
I bought this product in #70 Dark Natural Blonde. My hair color before I dyed it was a light brown and I wanted to go slightly lighter for Spring. After following the instructions, my hair turned out dark brown (with a product that should have lightened it). That being said, my hair feels soft and shiny despite not at all being the color that I wanted.
I used this in "Dark Ash Mahogany Brown" today. This was my fix to the mishap from 6 weeks ago (suffered through the worst fading and disgusting end result the past few weeks feeling fugly, deep conditioning it until it was ready to recolour) last colour was, L'Oreal truffle aka purple hair from Sally's that left my hair so fried, I cut it off... . Anyhoo, this was much easier on my hair, covered evenly, no lighter roots despite the 1 inch of grown from between dyes, left my hair soft, with more dimension and best of all it looks really rich, but NATURAL... a rich natural dark mahogany brown like this is hard to find, it's great because it's what I wanted from my last dye 2 months ago minus the purple! LOL.
DO NOT BUY THIS! I bought to one to make brown hair blonde THREE bottles of dye later my hair was HALF ORANGE AND HALF BROWN, I then bought it in light natural brown, AND ALOT is still orange nad then MY EARS WERE PEELING AND SO ITCHY AND THEN I WOKE UP IN SO MUCH PAIN, BECAUSE MY SKIN WAS PEELING OFF AND MY HAIR WAS GOING INTO MY EAR!!!! I DO NOT EVEN KNOW HOW THEY CAN SELL THESE MISLEADING AND DANGEROUS PRODUCTS!
Garnier Nutrisse Creme- the one with fruit oil and the avocado enriched hair conditioner treats my hair the best, and the color lasts the longest. I have used Loreal ( Boo!- it dried my hair out) and Clairol (Meh! color didn't last long on me) The blonde spectrum of colors available run slightly darker than the color chart on the boxes appear so you may want to choose a color a shade or 2 lighter ... I use shades 80 and 81 the most and it is a very believable mid blonde on my natural light brown hair.
I used this several times and quite liked the actual colour (Dark Mahogany Brown - a unique shade). And it did cover greys, just not for long. After about 3 weeks I would have greys poking out, not just at the roots, but all over. It's like the colour just faded right off them. And I rarely had much look of roots, so I guess it faded right off entirely. This is actually a good thing if you don't have grey and are worried about ending up with stripy hair! But I don't want to be colouring my hair every three weeks. I went back to Nice & Easy and can't believe the difference. Turns out this Garnier is kind of crap. Too bad about the fun shade! continued >>
Chose medium ash brown as was my usual color choice for years in other brands. It is lighter than other medium browns, the gray coverage stinks and after 2 weeks the color washed out of my hair (I use color safe shampoos & conditioners). Terrible product will not buy again. continued >>
I usually dye my hair in the salon due to having thick, coarse, black Asian hair and usually wanting the color lifted more than a few shades. In the past I have dyed my hair from a light brown almost blond to red and haven't colored my hair in a few years. Used Feria before and it did nothing to color my hair and left it very dry. Started out with Nutrisse Ultra Color in Golden Brown and it really didn't do anything...was kind of disappointed since it was specifically for dark hair. Went back and bought #535 Chocolate Caramel and it turned out perfectly. I am not sure if the color worked out because it had been dyed previously but I was pretty impressed the color took to my hair and was lightened. My hair didn't feel dry or brittle like it has when I have used Feria which is saying a lot given the natural texture of my hair. Very impressed with Garnier and am going to try some other of the colors to see if I can lift the color a bit more.
