Our 1st oil powered permanent haircolor for brilliant color and visibly healthier hair.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, long-lasting color. Hair is Hydrated, Silky and up to 3X Shinier than unwashed, uncolored hair.
How is Olia 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.
Is this shade right for me?Garnier Olia shade 5.0,"Medium Brown," is a natural, medium brown shade with 100% gray coverage. Without other reflects, this shade will allow your natural tones to show. It is best for anyone with natural hair between light brown and darkest brown.
If you prefer a lighter color than "Medium Brown" that still reflects naturally, try shade 6.0, "Light Natural Brown." For one shade darker, try shade 4.0, "Dark Brown." If you would like to remain in the medium brown range but would like to try other reflects and tones, there are other shades to choose from including 5.03, 5.3, and 5.60.
*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 5.0 for hair that has been previously colored shade 3.0, "Darkest Brown," or darker.
