I tried this based on a rave review of it that I saw on youtube. I followed the directions, meaning I concentrated on the roots and colored the rest of my hair at the end for only the last 10 minutes. The roots were all right, but the rest of my hair didn't take the color, so it was a huge waste of the product. The color was what I expected, a cool/ash light brown, at least where the color took, at the roots & top of my head (but I have long hair, lol, so I inadvertently had the trendy "ombre" look since the previously colored rest of my hair were lighter/yellower). It didn't make my scalp itch. But the conditioner was nothing to write home about -- it didn't make my hair silky soft and feeling well-conditioned. The packaging was pretty good, meaning the gloves were not horribly too big and the applicator was all right and easy to use.
Unfortunately, the color did not last for me at all. Grays started to show through after about 2 weeks. Unacceptable. I'll never repurchase this.

I have mixed feelings about this haircolor. I used it mainly to cover grays and it didnt do its job- the roots were covered fine but my hairline was still gray. It was pleasant smelling and easier to rinse out than other haircolors but since it didnt cover the gray well like my usual favorites (loreal excellence and preference), i wont be buying again.

I have been using John Frieda that works pretty well but I decided to get the Garnier Olia because it said 100% gray coverage, 60% oil blend with natural flower oils, and NO AMMONIA. I thought that maybe the lack of ammonia would make my hair less dry when dying it. With the Garnier Olia, I had a lot of itchiness/stinging like I was allergic towards the last 10 minutes of the 30 minute process. There was no gray coverage at all, so I basically put chemicals in my hair for nothing and paid $10 to do it. Now, I am afraid to dye my hair for another month after using the chemicals because even though it doesn't have ammonia, there are other chemicals in it. Total waste of money and time!

I had picked this up in 6.0 Light Brown. The color was not anywhere near a light brown. It turned out a medium brown with definite red undertones, which is not at all what I was looking for. It's not even that nice of a color. Their color accuracy and labeling is way off. I would definitely not repurchase again.

I'm surprised over the negative reviews. Years ago, I tried regular Garnier hair dye and it didn't take. I was worried over this but decided to give it a go. I'm glad I did. There are certain brands of dye that make me itch for a few days, so I was always trying something new. I even used henna, which worked wonders but was too expensive and I could only get it online. So, I went with Olia.
The smell was pleasant, and I love the smell of the conditioner. I didn't find a problem with holding the bottle. If you have long or medium hair you might want 2 boxes. I have a pixie so that was just an observation. The cream is very thick, not a negative I was just surprised. But it definitely won't drip.
The best parts? I don't itch. And even though the cream is thick, this stuff washed out immediately! I usually sit and wash and wash and wash and the water still isn't clear. THEN I would get dye on my hair towel. This was the exact opposite. Rinsed right out and no residue/marks. For that alone I'd recommend this dye!

I am very upset....this color did not take AT ALL and I will have to repeat the whole process with another brand that will actually color my hair! Very disappointed!!

The adverts for this products persuaded me to buy this product. I thought as they were on offer for £5 was also a reason to buy them. I expected this to make my hair very glossy and soft, I also expected it to cover my hair just as well as any other hair dye on the market that I've tried. This was hyped up to being better than any hair dye out there. However, I was incredibly disappointed. There was plenty of product to cover my hair, I had put so much on so of course I thought a Light Brown was going to cover my Dark Blonde hair a great amount. It didn't even succeed to cover my roots properly, never mind the rest. Also my hair seemed to be so dry after dyeing it, never has my hair felt like that before after dyeing. I saw nothing special about this dye whatsoever. Definitely would not repurchase.

I usually do my hair myself using stuff from sally's.
I saw this at the store, thought it was interesting, and bought it on a whim.
It did nothing that it was suppose to do. It had cause more damage than my usual hair dying routine and although I bought a shade to lighten my hair color it made my hair black.
Total waste of money. Would not buy or even reccomend to a friend or enemy.

I definitely have a mixed review for this product.
I love the colour, I'll say that first off. It's very rich and multi-faceted, more so than any other dyes I've used. It's the most natural looking colour I've ever used. The formula leaves my hair in decent shape; definitely not straw-like, but unfortunately not as smooth and luscious as I would like considering it's an oil-based formula. The colour is darker than the box advertised (I went with medium golden brown) but that's not all that unusual with a boxed dye.
And now the bad: the coverage absolutely sucks. My hair is only a few inches past my shoulders so it's not ridiculously long, and I have never needed two boxes to dye my hair, but I was left with so many patches after application that I definitely should have bought two. Needless to say I'll be getting down with round 2 tonight. I'm not particularly happy about that.
I don't think I'll be using this product again as I don't want to have to buy two boxes when one should do considering my hair isn't that long, but for now, I'm ok with it (well, will be once I cover up the patches...).
