I previously used Revlon Colorsilk, but their buttercream formulas became hard to find and the new formulas dried out my hair. Since Colorsilk did not contain ammonia, I thought I would try Olia. First, Med Pearl Blonde=good result; Med blonde=good result; Dark blonde=disaster. I am now a brunette! I really hope this color fades fast because it looks NOTHING like the picture on the box and is very ashey. I wish I would have gone with the new Rose Gold color instead, but I was afraid it would look pinkish. Don't know if I'd buy this product again, but definitely NOT this shade!

I used this instead of one of the Garnier Ultra colours following a bad experience with it. Both fried my hair and not only came out in the rain onto my clothes following several washes it also went onto a hotel's white towels and while still damp the hotel's white bedding. My hair was left in incredibly bad condition. The colour itself started off OK but faded to a horrible red. I told Garnier on Facebook and they asked me to privately message instead! I emailed them and received no reply. I will never buy Garnier hair colour again.

I've use Garnier products before. This was 5.0 Brown. The applicator bottle was such a strange shape it was very difficult to hang onto while applying. In addition having to add the developer yourself seems like a waste of containers. My hair is medium long and I was surprised that I did not have enough product to properly cover my hair. Very disappointed.

I love this product. I used to be a hairdresser back in the day and usually still buy my goldwell hair colour from the salon wholesalers but on a whim i picked this up in golden ash blonde. Its gorgeous. Hair feels better than when I colour it with goldewell. As with all hair colours, if you have long hair buy 2 boxes, if extremely long, buy three (if using as a full head colour and not just roots) otherwise you will get a patchy colour as all the hair wont be saturated enough. I do my roots and leave on for 20 mins before applying to my whole head otherwise the ends go darker. I find if i use a box colour I have ro not wash my hair for about 3 days otherwise it fades too fast. I did this with olia and although i’ve had a bit of fading (as you do will all colours) its been minimal. If you are using a red shade, this will fade much faster, this is true for all brands, red just fades faster than any other colour. Im sticking with this colour from now on and hope they never stop making it.

Garnier Whole Blends Olive leave in conditioner I love this stuff. This has replaced My Paul Mitchel leave in that I have used for decades. Please don't quit making it.

Bought Olia's Dark Garnet (red shade) colour and hadn't researched the brand at all before use. I am happy I hadn't read these reviews before trying Olia as it came out 100 times better than I could have ever expected. Alot of these reviews complain about the application bottle being hard to use, and I can understand that if you are using the gloves that come with the product it may slip from your hands easily, but I always make sure to have my own silicone gloves handy when dying my hair as they fit better and don't feel like you're wearing a sandwich bag on your hands! So maybe this will help anybody having that problem in the future when dying hair because most of the gloves supplied with box dyes are generally quite terrible! :) I found the colour itself very easy to put on, smells great and is creamy which makes it easy to spread. I have naturally medium brown hair which has been dyed, bleached and very damaged over time (but is alot better now from various treatments and regular trims!) and was worried how the red tones would come out but I was absolutely delighted to be honest! Rich, vibrant colour even when wet. After drying, my hair felt smooth, soft and looked shiney and I hadn't even used the conditioner that came with it (as I unfortunately misplaced it somehow!) I found this to be a great product (although, it may tangle when rinsing if you have curly hair like myself.) So definitely pile on the conditioner! :) A great thing I found is that I actually had too much product! It doesn't seem it when you first mix the colour, but there is quite alot in the bottle I found, for me anyway with medium-length hair. One negative thing I must say about this product is that I'm finding the colour runs after almost every wash. I have only had the colour in for 2 weeks now and it has already begun to fade. I would expect alot more for such a top quality dye in every other area, but I suppose nothing can be perfect! In saying this, I would definitely 100% use this product again. The colour came out beautiful, even better than expected. Maybe I will try leaving the colour in for a little longer next time and see if it lasts a greater period of time.Thanks to anyone who read my big, long review. Hope it was helpful!

The product does an ok job coloring my hair covering my gray hair, but I an stunned that after such long time with so many negative reviews on the application bottle, the manufacturer has not made any changes to it. I usually buy the black or soft black shade which covers my gray hair reasonable well, but the application bottle is just impossible to work with, keeps slipping out of my hands. I may or may not buy it again - I just know I have always been so annoyed with the design of the applicator.

I used the olia 110 Super Light Natural blonde, I had put a medium blonde on my near white hair and it turned it muddy and orange at the roots. I bought the olia 110 in hopes of bringing back my old hair color and lightening the orange /muddy tones. The product was easy to mix, I didn't like the developer being in a separate tube because I found it left so much product behind and I actually cut the bottle open and scooped it out. And the tear drop bottle isn't fantastic, since it's very slippery. The product itself smelled very nice, the best smelling hair dye there is, nice flower smell. I mixed it and put it on for 25 minutes. And the result was the perfect light blonde. It lifted out all the mud color. Leaving me with almost white hair again (more cool toned rather than neutral, exactly what I hoped for) and in good condition. I'm super happy with this product and will 100 % purchase it again. Olia 110 Super Light neutral blonde, part of the new super blonde collection they have.

Great home colour! I bought this because I wanted a low damage/no ammonia dye to cover my grey roots (omg, I'm 30 seriously). I usually just bleach over as my hair is all blonde but the bleach doesn't seem to cover greys these days so I had to buy a proper 'dye'. I bought 9.3 light golden blonde and it has covered 95% of the greys and left a really nice warm blonde colour. Really happy! No harsh chemical smell, easy to use and my hair feels soft and silky. Definitely recommend!

This is the worst hair color I've ever tried. Even though it's allegedly 60% oils, my hair felt really damaged after I used this. I'm on the Mermeida method which actually recommends this product but I wasn't pleased with their pick. I usually love their recommendations, but not this one.
