Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing Color Creme Nourishing Color Creme Medium Ash Brown 51 (Cool Tea)
NOURISHED HAIR MEANS BETTER COLOR
Garnier Nutrisse hair color creme nourishes with grape seed and avocado oil. The nourishing color creme enriched with fruit oil concentrate, penetrates deep into hair fibers to nourish and condition your hair so it takes color better and holds it longer, root-to-tip. Garnier Nutrisse delivers rich, long-lasting color with 100% gray coverage.
Is Shade 51 (Cool Tea) right for you?
Garnier Nutrisse Medium Ash Brown 51 (Cool Tea) is a medium brown shade with cool, ashy tones. It provides 100% gray coverage and is best for anyone with natural hair between dark blonde and darkest brown.
If you prefer a lighter shade that reflects similarly, try shade 61 (Mochaccino). For a darker shade, try shade 415 (Rasberry Truffle). If you'd like to remain in the medium brown range but would like to explore other reflects and tones, there are many shades to choose from including 50, 53, 535, 54, and 56.
*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 51 (Cool Tea) for hair that has been previously colored Darkest Brown 30 (Sweet Cola) or darker.
