Review of "Garnier Olia"
Space and the city traveler. I`m intrested in the healthy food, life meaning and my dog Gonzo :)
Olia is no-ammonia line of Garnier hair colors.
Well, I used ammonia hair colors for 15 years. My hair was pretty much dry and brittle.
Because of that, I decided to give a try on no ammonia hair dyes.
Ammonia is not only drying your hair. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, ammonia can irritate your eyes, skin, throat and lungs. It can produce caustic burns on scalp in some cases or itchy rash on the sides of the face. In this moment there are still no enough evidence that ammonia long-term use can cause cancer, but there are researches about that.
Since I started to use Garnier Olia, I must say that my hair is more silky and smooth. (My hair type: straight brown tick hair, red subtone.) It is not perfect, but it is better and I am pretty satisfied.
I use 10.1 ashy very blond. In my brown hair, it looks golden dark blond.
THE PACKAGE - yellow and black, nice, good-looking
THE CONDITIONER - in a little plastic bottle, nice gentle smell, ok quality
HAIR DYE- it has better smell than ammonia dyes, bit it is not completely without-chemical smell. Smell is ok, but still a bit chemical.
The only thing that I din`t like in package is that there is NO APPLICATOR BOTTLE.
Olia is healthier alternative to standard hair dye. But, it is also far from chemical-free. It contains substances like Parrafinum Liquidum, Hydrogen Peroxide, EDTA...
But, I think that there is no chemical free hair dyes in the market and that a lot of the "natural" hair colors are scam.
Olia is because of that, and because of the effects that it has on my hair, in my opinion better and more natural option.
