My Garnier Olia BzzAgent Review:
Okay, so I kind of have mixed feelings about this. I have medium to dark brown hair with some grey hairs coming in. OMG, that makes me sound old! 😀 I was super excited to try this color! I wanted to try something new with my hair and thought, hey why not give this color a try. I was expecting to have a darkish brown with a purple (amethyst) tint to it. Boy, was I wrong!! As you can see from my before and after pictures, it did not come out what I was expecting!
As you can see my original hair color has like 2 different shades of brown. I don’t know why that is but it does and seeing after I dyed my hair the shade comes out in 2 maybe 3 different shades of reddish/light brownish color. In the sun you can kind of see the purple (amethyst) color to it – very subtle, but again, not what I was expecting. The purple (amethyst) kind of is like a reddish color though. I can say that it did color my grey hairs but to a red color and for the rest of my hair…well it almost didn’t really affect the color as much as I would like.
One thing I can say is that the dye did not dry my hair out. It kept it looking shinny! Would I use this product again? Probably! I mean it didn’t turn out that bad but it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. But that probably wouldn’t stop me from using it again! Do I recommend this product? I do.
What color do you like to dye your hair? I’d love to know in the comments below!
