Garnier Olia Ammonia Free Hair Color Olia 3.16 - Darkest Violet



We no longer offer this product, we have something even better to meet your needs. Find it here.
Is it right for me?
The oil powered technology propels colorants deep into the hair, without ammonia, giving you pure, vivid, long-lasting color. Olia visibly improves and restores hair as the oils help to reverse roughness and dullness for more brilliant, dimensional color and softer, shinier hair with more bounce.

How is it different?
Unlike traditional haircolor, Olia uses an exclusive 60% oil blend with natural flower oils to achieve brilliant, radiant color results. The unique non-drip velvet cream formula propels colorants into the hair--without ammonia--with a pleasant sensorial fragrance.

Olia visibly improves and restores hair as the oils help to reverse roughness and dullness for more brilliant, long-lasting color. Hair is hydrated, silky, and 3x shinier.

Product Discontinued. Please see Garnier's Ultra Color BR2 - Dark Intense Burgundy.

How to use:

Olia provides optimal comfort with a non-drip, velvet cream. Its easy application, and delicate floral scent make it a new sensorial experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why did you discontinue this fabulous color? I used Olia 3.16 (Darkest Violet) for the first time back in 2012 (when it was still available) and loved it. BTW, 2012 was the first time I started using Olia. I had used before other Garnier hair dyes (Nutrisse used to be my go-to), but after getting a recommendation from a friend, I tried Olia and I must admit that I like Olia the best. My hair is thinning as I'm getting older (I'm in my 50s) and I want a formula that is not as aggressive on aging hair. I like Olia for the fact that it doesn't irritate my scalp and it is ammonia-free. I have used several of the dark and brown shades with great results. The darkest violet was one of my favorites. I have a lot of gray, and even when I let my gray roots grow a lot, the intense violet/purplish on the roots looked nice, not garish and didn't fade as quickly (as other reds tend to do). When the Darkest Violet was discontinued and couldn't find it anymore, I tried mixing the dark garnet with dark brown, but the result wasn't quite the same. Anyhow, for the past few years, I have been using the Dark Brown, and when I want a reddish cast I do Dark Soft Mahogany, and sometimes I mix Dark Soft Mahogany and Dark Brown. I like the results, but I can't get the drama and impact of that Darkest Violet shade. I wish Garnier bring back that shade. From what I see, a lot of people have asked-- maybe on line you don't see a lot (30 comments hardly qualify as a lot), but maybe people have been reaching out to you to ask. It would be great to bring it back. Why push consumers to other brands for a similar color when you can keep your happy ones with your own?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please bring this back! I love this color. It smells great and feels great! The color comes out way too intense at first but after a wash or two extra its perfect and looks almost natural! I only wish they had more product in the package but i have long thick hair and almost always need two bottles. Please bring back this color i love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bummed I am so very disappointed that the color I love, that suits me best is discontinued. I cannot use ammonia based colors and no other company makes this shade in ammonia free. Garnier-if you're reading these reviews, please bring this one back. I cannot afford to pay $30/unit on Amazon Marketplace to buy it from Malaysia, the only place where it is still available.
