Detailed review after using it for 8months
Reviewed in India on 26 October 2020
I'm writing this review after using this same hair colour for 8 months.
I've uploaded 2 pictures to show how it looks in natural light and how it looks in partial shade. I've uploaded pictures with my uncoloured roots to show how much coverage they give.
My hair description: Naturally brown with about 50%grey hair. Silky, straight and thick. Very healthy,No split ends at all. Never ever feel the need to condition/oil my hair,it's that good!
Before using Garnier hair colour: Since I've grey hair,I use brown henna as I wanted to use natural plant based dye. This gives partial coverage to grey hair, turns grey hair to golden streaks making it look like I went to a hairstylist for an expensive hair streak do! I get lots of compliments for my henna coloured hair!But after having a baby,it became tedious to use henna so I turned to the easier to apply Garnier hair colour.
After using Garnier hair colour:
As you can see from picture,it gives a good coverage. In 8months I've used about 5 packs( most times I use half pack to colour roots only as the previously coloured outgrown part doesn't fade) my hair growth is pretty fast so Ive to colour it about every 3 or 3and half weeks. But when I don't get time I just let it be for more than a month at times.
End result: my hair has grown a good length in 8months(approx 8inches).the longer my Garnier colored hair grows,the more I notice it's effect on my hair.
Now my hair is so dry and rough,it gets tangled! I never experienced tangled hair as I've very silky smooth hair. This is the most drastic effect from using Garnier hair colour. When I wash hair,my wet hair is all rough and tangled , literally feel like straw.
Please note I still don't use hair conditioners,oils,serums .
Although it gives a good coverage and is very easy and convenient to use,it doesn't give me the satisfaction I get from using henna,hair quality wise.
So although it has saved me time , I'm mulling over the thought of going back to good old messy traditional henna.
As for you,if you've the time to "take care" of your artificial coloured hair then this is a nice shade of brown!
