I love this product more then any other drugstore hair colors! Seriously I tried the Clariol foam one or whatever and it was so messy and stunk really really bad. Plus the color didn't get into all the foam and ended up missing spots. But this stuffs amazing! So easy to use and it doesn't smell so horrible! I really love the little oil you put into the mix as well. Plus afterwards your hair feels so smooth and I find that my hair will hold it's color for quit some time, but mostly cause of color treated hair shampoo which helps. Love this and so much cheaper then going to a salon and being charged 50 dollars or more.

Well I decided to go back to my "roots" today. My roots are a natural dark blonde to light brown. I purchased Garnier Nutrisse #60 Light Natural Brown and so far I like the color. Its a little darker than I wanted but I'm hoping as I wash it the next few days, it will fade to the color I was looking for. My hair feels fabulous. It's very soft and shiny. The scent wasn't as strong as other products I've used so that was a bonus. Once I got my hair completely dried, I noticed some red/gold highlights that I've never noticed before. I actually like them. I will update this in a few days once I've washed my hair...that will be the true test for me. I've had other products fade to a god awful color. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

My all time favorite boxed hair color. I much prefer this to going to a salon. it leaves my hair looking healthier than before I even dyed it. It smells great too! And now even comes in shades to lighten my dark brown hair. Love it!

Just used this product in 111 White Chocolate (ultra-light blonde) as I have for some time. It always holds fast for 5 weeks for me and I swim in chlorinated pools every day. That means my hair is washed 2x a day. I do alternate with Nutrisses's 100 which is slightly lighter but the same product. This is a great hair color product and I especially appreciate the fruit-oil packet that is added to the color. My scalp is not dried out and itchy afterward and my hair shines!

My 100th review. Yay. I'm *officially* way too addicted to my iphone.
All those trips to the salon, all those sally's misses, and good old garnier is the one. I went to a salon to get my hair colored and it was lovely, if a tad coppery. For one day that is, the next day- ORANGE. No amount of blue shampoo could even tone it down and I hated it. So the ever wonderful hairboard <3 recommended garnier nutrisse. My mom told me to go to a salon, and that box dye would turn my hair orange but heres the thing: I have an event tomorrow, I have better things to spend $200 on, and my hair was already orange so I had nothing to lose and I am so glad I tried this! I used light ash blonde (gingerale). For starters, the scent was a very pleasant surprise. The chemicals were very faint and it had that awesome garnier smell. Seeing as I didn't have a really well ventilated place to do this, this was a huge benefit. Second, I have very long, thick hair and lots of it and usually require 2 boxes but I ended up only having to use 1 and it was more than enough. That's ok, now I have a box for next time since I will definitely reuse this. I didn't have any dripping problems either, and this was one of the easiest hair dyes I've ever used. I also have to add that this is surprisingly gentle and non damaging. Oh, and I completely LOVE the packet of conditioner it comes with. I'm a big fanof high end brands but this conditioner is cone free and still left my hair feeling like silk so I will definitely buy a garnier deep conditioner now. And now for the best part-the color! I have to admit, I was a little worried because it seemed reddish when wet (ofcourse its highly likely thats just me being paranoid) but it dried to the most beautiful ashu blonde. To be honest, I was expecting golden/yellowy at best because I was going from bright orange to blonde but nope, it's a perfect ash blonde. By the way, this is the only hairdye I've used that's true to undertone. My only complaint is that its a teeny bit darker than the box (I'd call it more of a medium ash blonde) but again, that could be because I went from red to blonde. No big deal though, next time I'll just go for lightest ash blonde. I just did it today so I can't say anything about longevity from my own experience, but my cousin uses this (she also recommended it) and she has gorgeous hair that never turns brassy despite the fact that she uses shampoo with ammonium laureth sulfate (strips color) so I'm guessing this should last, especially since I'm only using color safe shampoos. To cut to the chase, soft, silky, ashen hair. Highly, highly recommend this hair color. Total hg.
UPDATE: did I give this a five star review yesterday? Yeah, well can I change that to oh, I don't know, 11? Seriously, I washed my hair and it faded to the EXACT color on the box. I mean seriously spot on. Really this couldn't be any better. Good job on this one garnier, I'd pay over $100 for this if I had to. (don't get any ideas) No but really, I've never been more happy with color and this includes some VERY high end salons (like $300)
UPDATE: soo, I decided I wanted my hair even lighter (I'm quite fickle like that) and saw a box of white chocolate (10a extra light ash blonde) at target on sale for $5 and I just had to have it. So I finally got around to doing my hair at around 11 pm. This time was quite an er, adventure. You see I learned that you're not supposed to wash you're hair before you color it and you shouldn't use perm. color on wet hair. But I totally forgot that dry hair requires way more hair dye than wet hair. So having about 80% of my hair covered but not saturated, the unthinkabke happened. I ran out of hair dye. It was like, 12:30 am and I handed my poor dad the box and made him buy me another box at a 24 hours star market. The thing is, starmarket didn't carry white chocolate, and chamomile (10n, extra light natural blonde) was the closest thing. I had no choice but to use chamomile, and to be honest I was afraid of it being brassy because even my previous color faded a little too warm. In the end, I think the combination is actually what gave me beautiful color because white chocolatr seemed to fight brass quite well, but chamomile definitely seemed to lighten better. The result is a gorgeous, dynamic yet uniform light champagne blonde. It has a few highlights that are beautifully blended and everybodys been asking me what salon I go to. Even my stylist asked me!! He actually didn't believe me when I told him I did it myself. I'm actually pretty amazed myself. I mean, I've never gotten this kind of result from any salon before. I would describe the color as an amanda seyfried blonde. Amanda seyfried for under $20? Yes please! I go around recommending this to absolutely everyone. I hope garnier never changes this formula.

R1--Dark Intense Auburn.
1 Star for leaving my hair soft and shiny, although, my hair naturally is soft and shiny.
1 Star for being cheap.
1 star for the great color. On my black hair it was intensely red auburn, and it fades nicely.
Minus 1 star for never rinsing clear. On the day of its application, it took me about 40-50 minutes in the shower to try to get the water to run clear--which never happened. The water still runs dark-light pink 2 weeks after its application! I've dyed my hair before, and maybe this happens with L'oreal preference, but it's never happened with a different Garnier product--535. Nor does it happen with Ion Color Brilliance products. Only this color was a hassle to work with. Like another reviewer declared, I have ruined light colored shirts because it fails to run clear! Be aware of this product! It's a mess.

This is the only hair dye I use. It actually makes my hair look better than before I dyed it. It has a nice smell to it, it's not runny and if you get a color that is within 2 shades of your current hair color it comes out exactly as indicated on the box. The price is always amazing - about $7 CAD per box at Walmart.
I have noticed that whenever I try other brands my hair feels like straw and is super super damaged. This dye is fairly gentle as far as hair dyes go and it delivers on the color. FYI: If you leave the dye for longer than indicated in the box (25 min or so) the color will turn out darker but will fade into the color on the box after a few washes. I highly recommend this product.
Additional: For people who said it fades quickly, I think you can solve that problem by using the conditioner that comes with the dye.

I dyed my hair auburn color at a salon but it was far from my liking, I decided I would dye it myself since I've dyed my hair red and it came out much more vibrant than the salon did. I grabbed Nutrisse from the shelf and tried it. I got 76 Rich Auburn. It does soften your hair, but the smell is much too strong and my color was patchy and uneven. It may be that I am inexperienced but I've dyed my hair many times before alone. It is definitely not true to box.

I used Medium blond to tone down my hair. The color came out ok, but I am not impressed with the conditioning. My hair is very dry now. I usually use Superior Preference and will go back to using that. I uploaded pictures of my before and after so that you can see the color.

I used it to take my hair a level lighter and it worked! I have natural medium brown hair and its light brown now. I used number 80 medium natural blonde. And I plan on doing it again in 4 weeks to lighten it up again! And repeat it until I'm as light as the box! I don't know why I haven't done this before! I have always been anti box Bc the darker shades don't lift out of my hair very well or at all! This is the first time I used box dye in about two or three years! This stuff is awesome!!!

I couldn't find my shade in Herbashine so I thought I would try this. I really like it! My hair is soft and shiny and I have a few grays that it seems to have covered totally. I got the shade Acorn and it came out a little dark initially but I didnt mind and now it has lightened up to the exact shade on the box.

I switched from L'Oreal Preference to Garner Nutrisse and I'm sorry I did. Over a seven month period I used it six times. My hair lost its shine, fullness, and body. It took me awhile to figure out that Garnier Nutrisse was the cause otherwise I would have stopped using it sooner.

This is more of nostalgia than anything else. I was 13 years old, and desperate to be unique. I wanted to dye my hair a jet black color, with bright red streaks, and defiant purple tips!
Instead, I dyed my light brown hair blond.
Ice blond. I don't regret what I did. I went to the store, and after looking at a sea of blond boxes, I grew exasperated and grabbed one from my favorite brand. Garnier. At the time, I just liked anything fruity.
My mother suggested two boxes, but I took one, and ended up needing two halfway through the dye process (this happened to me twice, with two different brands)
My color was 100 - Extra-Light Natural Blonde (Chamomile). Honestly, I just thought the girl was pretty, and the color was blond. Only until much later did I realize just how off the "normalized blond" spectrum I was. So, I dyed my hair, with the help of my mother, gasping for breath outside of the door. I only had one previous dye moment before, when I begged my mother to let me dye my hair red, and she let me tint my bangs a dark red, which barely showed up on my hair. I had leaned my forehead against my pink painted walls in an act of boredom, and the pink stain is STILL there.
Needless to say, I had no idea what to expect. When I was washing it off, I couldn't believe how light it was. I went from light brown to icy blond in the matter of about 20 minutes! I was very surprised.
It wasn't very damaged at all. Only until I had a fiasco of making my hair blond with Feria, when I had a wash out black dye in my hair that stuck, did it get very damaged. I only used this twice. The first and second time I dyed my hair. Since then, it was Herbal Essences in XL2 Blond, and then XL4 blond.
Good, reliable, and the color doesn't even fade. When my hair finishes growing out from my Feria fiasco, I'll dye it back to ice blond, (a little blonder, with 111 - Extra-Light Ash Blonde (White Chocolate) next time) I will use this.
EDIT: I have previously dyed my hair with Colorsilk (Revlon) shade 05, and it was horrid! I had pink bangs, and brown tips, and blond roots!
So, I run to the store, and buy this in my reliable shade 100. While it isn't BLONDE blonde. It's now a more comfortable and even blond color that actually looks rather cool. I plan on using a toner and hopefully, avoid another fiasco.

I used Medium Golden Brown Chestnut and it came out a champagne brown without any reddish braziness like feria l'oreal or l'oreal preference. It left my hair soft and smells great. The color isn't that harsh which can be good if its your first time, but if you need heavy coverage or something drastic probably not the best. l'oreal preference would be better. I will continue to use and maybe use their highlighting as well. nc40

Good coverage but washes out too quickly.

It's a nice product. Yes, i would buy this again but it would not be my first choice.
I 'deflower' my hair color with this hair dye, and the results were horrible to me, but it was just because i was unexperienced and i choose a sucky tone. Then I used again a couple times and it went alright.
I've never experienced any negative results apart from that but i've never experienced anything awesome.

I won't be buying this again, BUT it is a good product.
Let me explain.
I started going gray at 24 and have experimented with various dyes and glazes and so on in the past several years. I mostly used Garnier Nutrisse dyes as I have had the best results with them. Unfortunately, when I tried going red (don't remember the color number now) my hair turned purple. The brown and dark blonde dyes worked just fine, however, and never damaged my hair. I used Perfect 10 to get a good red a few times, and that worked well.
However, because the results are inconsistent I now prefer to buy professional dyes because I know what their base colors are (that dye that turned my hair purple must have had a blue base, as my natural color has a fair amount of red in it). I like to KNOW what I'm getting when I spewnd my hard earned money.

I bought the reflective blue black(BL 21) permanent dye to go back to black hair. I tried blue black, since i had always wanted my hair to be that color. i buy 2 boxes and the smell was horrible. After my hair is dyed, and dried. You CAN see the blue in the light. For a day or so. Now has been about 2 weeks and two days and my hair is back to my natural brown color except from the back near my neck on the inside of my hair and where my bangs are suppose to be. When my hair is down, hair is brown. When my hair is up i have black hair with a brown ponytail. this is ridiculous.. NEVER AGAIN!

BLACK CHERRY! I've dyed my hair this exact same color for the last two years and it fades to the prettiest color ever! Yes it does fade (which I know most people don't like) but I love what color my hair fades to when I dye my hair this color! I naturally have dark brown hair and right when I dye it, my hair looks really dark brown with a hint of purple indoors and in natural light, it's REALLY dark purple-ish red. When it fades, it's auburn with a hint of that purple still. The smell of the dye isn't overwhelming, just make sure you add that grape seed oil and open a window (you're supposed to do that for any hair dye though...).
