Garnier Olia Ammonia Free Hair Color Olia 9 1/2.1 - Lightest Ash Blonde

$9.99 MSRP

Our 1st oil powered permanent haircolor with no ammonia 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 9 1/2.1, "Lightest Ash Blonde," is our lightest blonde shade and has cool reflects, designed to lighten and neutralize blonde hair. It is best for anyone with natural hair between light blonde and dark blonde.

If this shade is too light for you, try one of our other blonde shades such as 9.0 or 8.0.

*For women with currently color treated hair, there are special considerations for the color results you can achieve. Because of this, we do not recommend shade 9 1/2.1 for hair that has been previously colored shade 7.0 "Dark Blonde," or darker, or for predominantly gray or previously bleached hair. For more help, use our Shade Selector Tool to find the perfect shade for you!

How to use:

Applying Olia: A Sensorial Experience
Olia transforms coloring your hair into a new sensorial experience. Because Olia is ammonia-free, it won't irritate your scalp and there is no harsh ammonia smell. Instead, Olia has a delicate floral scent. And, its non-drip, velvety cream texture helps provide optimal comfort during application.

Follow this step-by-step process when applying color at home:

1) Always do a skin test 48 hours before.
2) Apply to dry, unwashed hair.
3) Apply gloves, snap off tip and remove the cap of the Developer Bottle and add Colorant.
4) Shake the bottle vigorously to mix.
5) Start applying color at the roots, then away from roots to the tips.
6) Extend color through to the ends and massage into hair.
7) Leave formula on for 30 minutes.
8) Massage hair thoroughly before rinsing to optimize rinsing process.
9) Rinse hair thoroughly until water runs clear.
10) Apply conditioner after color and leave on for two minutes, then rinse thoroughly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better then any other color I have colored my hair in the past and this time I was trying to get back to my natural blonde from Henna red. I had to color remove first and go with the Olia light bronze before this color. I have a sensitive scalp and I love how it doesn't sting like other hair colors. I also put coconut oil on three day hair first and it works fine over top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST EVER! I finally found this color and loved it! My hair was naturally very dark brunette but is almost white now. This is a perfect color with no brassy effects ever! I'm sold! (Wish it were easier to find on retail shelves!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tried to cover my roots but turned them gold I bought this product to try and match up with my ash blonde colour from the salon. Sadly the test strip I did turned my roots a dark gold colour and darkened my already blonde colour from the salon. It also left my hair very squeaky and dry feeling. Had such high hopes, what can I do?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Blonde This is the best platinum blonde color I've ever used, even compared to when I used to get my color done at the salon! It's the perfect platinum, with no ugly yellow tones whatsoever. The color looks so natural and pretty. Can not recommend enough!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non-drying floral scented light blonde formula I'm surprised that more people haven't had a 5 star experience with 9-1/2.1. I had tried the other light blonde shades which left too much orange and not enough light blonde. This one works & it also covers the little sprouts of gray hair, too. I would suggest keeping the product in your hair 45 minutes to really bring out the vibrant shiny tones. Once I forgot about my timer and left it on 60 minutes and my hair was the right color and not in the least over processed or dried out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY no more orange! I finally found a blonde color that is light enough with out bleaching, yet doesn't leave my hair orange. I know people complain about the bottle but seriously for a great color I could care less!! It's just getting harder and harder to find now and I'm scared it's going to become obsolete :( PLEASE don't take my 9 1/2.1 from me!! I won't be able to live without it!!!! LOVING this color!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wanted to dye my hair this color to match my highlights and fix my roots and it didn't change my hair color at all or cover my roots. It was a waste of money and my time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purpleish The store was out of my normal dye so I bought this. Actually I purchased two boxes cause I have really long hair and this turned my hair blueish and purpleish all over. I had to fix it right away. I was mortified and now I won't touch this brand at all, which sucks cause they have some gorgeous reds I'd love to play with

Rated 5 out of 5 by from olia lightest ash blonde I am a 35 year old woman who has been dying my hair blonde for over 15 years, I have struggled and struggled to achieve a non brassy light blonde color with no damage, and olia lightest ash blonde was truly the miracle I was looking for, it is by far the best product I have used in my life. the color comes out perfect with no brassiness, and keeps hair damage free even when lightening this much. don't waste your time with anything else. perfect results everytime! nadia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It Did Nothing! I have used a lot of boxed blonds but this one is by far the worst. I wanted to just touch up my roots here and there. Nothing! Just made my hair greasy and cost me money. I usually like your products but this was a real let down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this color! I used this color on top of Olia Light Blonde and my hair looks beautiful. I don't know why people are having problems with gray/blue, but I"m betting it was because their hair was probably bleached? My hair wasn't damaged by this product at all. I've used Olia colors for months now and I only see the softest hair after I dry it. Don't be afraid of this product. If you're bleaching your hair, go by the warning on the box and don't use it. My stylist said the blue/gray comes out because blue/green/gray tints are in ash blonde colors. If you don't have a color already on your hair, beware.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this product. A few minutes ago, I dyed my hair this color. Afterwards, you could clearly see the ends very damaged and falling off. My hair has been recently cut so seeing it broken after dyeing it could only mean the product was responsible for the damage. I'll sadly have to go tomorrow to get it cut up to my shoulders. In the picture, you can see the damage and brushing it and with slight touches, it falls.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope. I am naturally a platinum blonde... But as I've been getting older my hair has been getting darker. I usually use the normal garnier product to dye my hair lighter and love it. Always comes out the color I want it to be. When I saw this product wasn't that much more pricier I decided to give it a try. NEVER AGAIN! My hair is a sickly gray blue color! Definitely not the light blonde I wanted!! I'll go back to garniers other hair dying product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This product is amazing. No burning no smell .. Amazing. The color is true .. I love cool blonde and this is the shade I have been looking for forever. PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE .. EVER :)!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Excellent I love this dye! I've been using it ever since it came to the stores, the Lightest Cool Blonde shade. It doesn't burn your skin or hair and the end result is always marvellous because of both the good quality of the dye and the conditioner. Hope it doesn't leave the store shelves or I have no idea what I will use! I cannot speak on behalf of girls with darker hair, not entirely sure how it'd work on dark brown hair, but as I have quite dark blonde hair, it works perfectly. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results, glad I switched I've been using another top brand for years but it's hard to find good dye for blondes. The top brand switched their formulas and now the colors turn out weird and different everytime. I thought I'd give this a try as I like some of the other Garnier products. WOW, absolutely NO gross hair dye smell. That was amazing! Color was spot on, very nice and consistent, shiny and my hair felt softer. The conditioner that came with the product is also very nice!! I'd definitely recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible I will never use this color again. I was expecting a cute light blonde with the 9.5.1 and ended up with silvery hair with a chunk of blue. I'm so disappointed. I've always used garnier nutrisse and on a whim tried the olia. Nope, never again. My hair literally looks dull and grey. The smell of it is nice and it did make my hair very soft and smooth but the color is terrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased! I really like that Oila doesn't dry your hair out! I use the 9.3 lightest cool blonde since my hair does grab red or brassy tones. If you are a dark blonde naturally or light brown and you want to go really light it might be worth it to do what I do and go to Sally's and get the red brassy corrector that I mix right with the color mixture. It keeps me from turning strawberry blonde or that icky brassy color. My only complaint is I wish that it lasted longer and I didn't have to do it every four weeks. It does say that you will have to redo every four weeks so I can't complain. Kasey

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biggest impact in hair coloring in years! I've been coloring my hair since I was 16 years old. Olia has changed the way I color my hair. This product not only gives me great color coverage, especially for the gray, but it lasts so much longer than other products.. My hair comes out so much softer and more manageable. Thanks for OLIA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very satisfied with this product. This product is outstanding. The smell was fantastic. The color turned out awesome!! I had no bronze or yellow tones coming through. Thanks for making a excellent product and this will be my new product to use from now on!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Results My hair is more white than blonde, a few times in the past I have had a problem with yellowing. Yellowing was getting bad so I thought I would go to light blonde. HUGE mistake. Not only did it not turn even a little blonde it is a dark gray. YUCK. So if you are trying to go from white to blonde do a test color first.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money This hair dye is horrible! I havent dyes my hair in years and got professional highlights 3 months ago. They are grown out so I figured instead of forking over another $200 I would just buy this dye to do my whole head since it is the color I was trying to achieve. My hair starting out was lighter than the color on the color chart on the side of the box so I figured there wouldn't be any problem having it dye the cool blonde. I was wrong. Instead of lightening my hair it just make it darker! Even the hair that wasn't highlighted to begin with. You can't even see the highlights I had before all you see if light brown hair. The worst. Now I know why I haven't used diy dye in a long time. Not only is my hair darker but it now feels like straw. Do not buy this dye if you want cool blonde colored hair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blonde dye made my hair brown! I wanted to lighten my hair a bit because I am already blonde but my hair came out a dark brown! I am so mad. stripped the color out immediately. I will never use this product again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty I always get my hair done professionally. I broke down today due to lack of time and money and bought Olia after some research online. It was easy and quick to apply. I think I should have left it on my roots a little longer than 20 minutes. The color is pretty and looks natural but I wish it was a little lighter at my roots. How long do I need to wait to reapply. My hair is super soft and shiny too! :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible Please note that the color came out awful. It's between silver with blue highlights. I have used the buttercup color previously and loved it. Now I have to wear a hat until I can fix it. I'm very disappointed with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST HAIR COLOR EVER!!!!! Best hair color ever. I have damaged hair from color product use, this actually makes my hair feel better and look better. When I don't use it, I can tell the difference. The color is beautiful. The last time I went to the salon for a hair cut (right after I colored myself), several of the stylist commented on what a beautiful color my hair was. Finally a super blonde hair color that doesn't destroy my hair!
