About This Shade
Garnier Olia shade 5.0, "Medium Brown," is a natural, medium brown with 100% gray coverage. Without other reflects, this shade will allow your natural tones to show.
Is This Shade Right For Me?
Medium Brown is best for anyone with natural hair between light brown and darkest brown. For a lighter shade that still reflects naturally, try shade 6.0 Light Natural Brown. For a darker natural shade try 4.0 Dark Brown. If you want to explore other shades in the medium brown family, check out 5.03 Medium Neutral Brown and 5.3 Medium Golden Brown.
For anyone who currently has color treated hair, there are special considerations for the color result you can achieve. Because of this, we do not recommend shade 5.0 for hair that has been previously colored shade 3.0 Darkest Brown or darker. For more help, use our Shade Selector Tool to find the shade for you!
Unlike traditional haircolor, Olia uses a 60% oil blend with no ammonia natural flower oils to achieve brilliant, radiant color results. The oil powered technology propels colorants deep into the hair, giving you vivid, long-lasting color. Olia visibly improves and restores hair as the oils help to reverse roughness and dullness for more brilliant, long-lasting color. Olia-treated hair is hydrated, silky and up to 3X shinier than unwashed, uncolored hair.
Instructions of Use
The non-drip, velvety cream texture of Olia helps provide optimal comfort during application. Because Olia is ammonia-free, there is no harsh smell and it won't irritate your scalp. The hair dye kit includes everything you need: a developer applicator, a colorant tube, after-color conditioner, a set of gloves, and the instruction sheet.
