Find the Olia Shade That’s Right For You
Hair Color by the Numbers:
Hair color ranges from black (level 1) to light blonde (level 9). It is important to stay within two levels, either darker or lighter, than your natural color for the best result. The further you move away from your natural color when going darker, the more dramatic your results will be. That means your roots will be noticeable sooner. If you want to go lighter than your natural color, Olia is designed to lift your hair up to two levels so that you can go from a dark brown to a light brown or a light brown to a blonde, for example, but not as far as a black to a blonde. For the best results, stay within two levels of your natural color.
Hair Color by Tone:
Tone is measured in warm, cool, red and natural. If you want to add warmth to your hair, go with warm, golden tones. Or, to keep it cool, pick ash shades. Shades without a tone descriptor in their names, like Dark Brown, allow your natural color to show through and will provide the best gray coverage.

I do have a couple comments to make on some of the most commonly mentioned negative points, though.
1. For people who are worried about this weighing down their hair...this is an OIL based dye. It specifically says that. If you have naturally oily hair already, DO NOT USE AN OIL BASED DYE. That's honestly just common sense and shouldn't really need to be said, but too many people brought that up. Adding oil to something oily will not make it gorgeous and fluffy. Since my hair is slightly drier, this dye is perfect and makes my hair beautifully smooth.
2. This is a dual point...first of all, yes, the bottle is a very weird shape. I don't consider this an issue, but apparently others do. If you are twisting the applicator cap off before you shake it, then you should be using both hands to shake the bottle. One on top, to block the hole, and one on the bottom to hold the bottle. Make sure to shake it vigorously. I have a strong feeling that a lot of the people complaining about coverage issues, patchiness, and weird colors are not shaking the dye well enough to blend everything together.
3. This is a rather thick hair dye. Personally, I prefer this to the thinner, runnier dyes.Read more ›
Garnier has a large selection of colors shown in photo #2 (see photo collage that I attached by following 'customer photos'). I selected Garnier's Olia 4.0 dark brown color and the color came out nicely. The color is very natural and matched the rest of my hair very well. This is the good news part of the review.
Photo #4 shows the hair before the color was applied and Photo #3 shows the hair after the coloring.
On the negative side, I did not like the applicator. It is attractive looking, but the tear drop shaped bottle is not comfortable to hold and is slippery when the gloves are soaked with color mixture. The bottle is totally smooth and round and the sleek gloves had trouble holding on to it. The bottle is shown in photo #1.
The color mixture is fairly thick. I started applying it directly to roots by parting the hair. Because I found the bottle hard to hold I switched to using a brush to apply color and that worked better for me.
The color had no amonia and thus no amonia smell, that was very nice. I found the flowery fragrance a bit too strong. I would have preferred a lighter scent or unscented.
I liked that the color stains on my skin around the hair line washed off easily without much scrubbing.
The bottom line of my experience: nice color and uncomfortable applicator. I plan to use it again with the following modifications: I would use some masking tape to create folds and grooves on the bottle so that the surface is no so smooth. I would also be applying the color from the bottle on to the brush and then use the brush to apply it to the hair.
