Garnier Olia Permanent Hair Colour 3.16 Deep Violet
This product is rubbish!
After reading such great reviews on this product I really wanted to try it! My mum applied it for me and I followed the instruction fully, when I removed the hair dye the dye had only dyed bits of hair and other bits were still my natrual colour, I thought it was my bad as I may have need 2 boxes as I have long thick hair but my mum also bought one an used it a couple of days after and it had the same affect on her, she has short thin hair, this product is very disapointing and I will have to buy a different hair dye brand to cover up all the patchiness! Very disappointed with this hair dye!

Not perfect but pretty good
I dye my hair fairly regularly and am always looking for a purple-ish dye that won't fade straight away. This dye has done a reasonably good job.
First of all it smells amazing - not like hair dye at all! It smelled like flowers and was really pleasant without being overpowering.
The dye has an unusual consistency compared to other dyes, its very thick. I used two boxes (my hair is shoulder length but quite thick) and found it useful to have slightly more dye that I needed to make sure I got all of my hair.The dye didn't drip or run down my neck while developing, I clipped up my hair and it stayed in place.
I used one full tube of the conditioner immediately after rinsing my hair and it gave it a lovely shine and made it soft.
The colour was quite dark after dyeing - almost black. (My hair has a lot of dye build up so I guess thats partly why) However after washing it a few times, the colour has softened and it now has a lovely purple tone.
This dye isn't perfect but overall its good and gave an even colour without damaging my hair.

Absolutely hate it.
Applied two boxes as instructed (I have long hair) and it went on very thick, I did everything it said on the box and when I washed it off it was horrible. It was patchy and it really damaged my hair. I can't dye it again to fix it or it will ruin my hair even more. So now I am stuck with dull hair and it is embarrassing at work.
