If you’ve been following #MyOliaStory for the past few months, then you know I’ve been dyeing my hair at home with Garnier® Olia every 6 weeks.
This is the most consistent I have been in years, since I had stopped dyeing my hair all together during my pregnancies. For some reason, my hair had become a very dark brunette during that time – which I can tell you is not my natural color, but I’m not entirely sure how it came to be. (Has this happened to anyone else??) I wanted to go back to a much lighter version of brown while retaining the look of it being natural.
If you still haven’t tried Garnier® Olia for yourself, let me tell you some of the things I have loved about using it:
Olia is an ammonia-free hair dye – I love that even though my color is coming from a bottle, it certainly doesn’t smell that way during the process.
The dye is powered by 60% oil – That means my hair is being nourished during coloring and won’t end up dry and brittle
100% gray coverage – This girl has got grays, but I don’t need anyone knowing that. Gray hair is tough, but I love that Olia completely covers them.
Hair feels soft and manageable – Sometimes dyeing your hair can result in it feeling like straw, but my hair feels really soft.
I used Olia 6 1/2 .3 again as my shade, but instead of just doing my roots this time, I actually did my whole head. I was a little nervous about that, but I’m happy with how it came out.
Overall, I really like using Garnier® Olia and the fact that you can find it just about everywhere and it’s affordable means that I know it is always accessible when I need to freshen up my color again. I think in September I’ll go back to darkening it up a bit for Fall/Winter with a warmer brown.
