BLONDE FROM A BOX HAIR DYE? Garnier Olia 110 Super Blondes Review & Demo

Hi guys!

I was experimenting again with box hair color and this time, to cover up my dark roots and blend them with the rest of my hair color, I used the Garnier Olia in #110 Superblondes.

This was the first time I tried Garnier hair color, as I'm usually loyal to L'Oreal. 

I was tempted to try out this product because it's supposed to be enriched with oil formula and therefore not so damaging on the hair (fingers crossed it truly is that way!)

I really liked the formula, as it felt like it's leaving my hair soft, giving it a silky shine!

Also, it's very simple to use and to mix the color.

However, this shade won't give you professional results if your natural roots are darker.

You can see here what my natural roots look like:

As you can see, I had my natural roots showing and I wanted to blend them with the color of my lengths...

This was the results:

The verdict: This colour managed to freshen up the shade of my lengths beautifully, but I wasn't particularly pleased with the results it left on my roots- it was far from professional results.

After a few washes, it turned out quite brassy and I had to tone it several times with purple shampoo and mask.

I will not be purchasing this shade again for touching up my roots, as they're too dark to begin with.

This color has no ammonia and it can only lift the color for one or two shades max, so I'd recommend it for whoever has lighter roots than mine and just wants to go a slightly bit lighter than it already is.

After a few weeks, I colored my hair again, with L'Oreal Prodigy in #7 Almond (this review is yet to be published), and that color gave my roots the perfect results, a slightly darker shade, without any yellow/orange undertones.

I hope this review was helpful!

Have you ever tried Garnier Olia hair color and if so, which shade did you go for?

Leave me your comments!

In my video review I'm also showing you a bit of the coloring process, how I apply the color and how to mix the ingredients (it's super easy, really!):
