Is Shade 40 (Dark Chocolate) right for you?
Garnier Nutrisse Dark Brown 40 (Dark Chocolate) is a pure, natural brown shade that is one shade lighter than Nutrisse Darkest Brown 30 (Sweet Cola). It provides 100% gray coverage and is best for anyone with natural hair between light brown and black.
If you prefer a lighter color that still reflects naturally, try Medium Natural Brown 50 (Truffle). If you would like to remain in the dark brown range but would like to try other reflects and tones there are many shades to choose from including 413, 415, 42, 434, and 452.
*For women with currently color treated hair, there are special considerations for the color result you can achieve. Because of this, we do not recommend shade 40 (Dark Chocolate) for hair that has been previously colored Darkest Brown 30 (Sweet Cola) or darker.
