OLIA Hair colour review
I know i said that i wouldn't be dying my hair after the last lilac disaster but when i received a update email from Garnier promoting their new hair color, i couldn't resist!
It it meant to be good for the hair as it has no ammonia in it but it also permanent. Its the first 'oil-powered' home hair colour!
I went straight to boots as soon as i had a spare moment as it is currently £5.99 so worth a go. i was so excited to get home and put the colour on. I love the excitement of changing hair colour, it may sound silly but it always makes me feel better. I chose the intense red as i had medium brown hair colour and love a nice bright colour that stands out.
Now i followed instructions applied the hair dye and it was nice to be able to sit in my room and apply a hair dye that doesn't have that strong smell that makes my eyes water. It was easy to apply and the bottle was a perfect shape. I found it didn't drip everywhere like all the other hair dyes i use do, even the mousse kind i end up getting every where. I left it on for 30 minutes as instructed.
Washed it off and had the usual issue with red where it looks like my head had been bleeding while i washed it off and im trying to make sure i don't stain the bath. Always wear gloves to avoid horrible stained hands. Not a good look!
I dried my hair awaiting the final result and i was really disappointed. Don't get me wrong, my hair was soft but the color was dull and not vibrant at all! it may have been because my hair doesn't hold colour very well but i don't think i will be using the reds in this range again! maybe the dark purple or browns would be better and i would be willing to try it again. I just think for £5.99 it was worth a go but i ended up grabbing some directions semi permanent hair colour ( review coming soon) and redyeing my hair the next day.
I had high hopes for this product and had seen so many reviews that said how good it was but it wasn't anything like i expected it to be! The best part was that it did keep my hair soft but i think that's to do with the conditioner that comes with it.
Sorry for the bad review guys but like i said, it could of just been my hair so i would love to see if anyone uses this hair dye, specially in red and gets on well! Let me know!
