Garnier Olia Intense Copper | AimeeBellMua

So yesterday I decided it was time for another hair colour change so I decided I wanted to go for a copper colour. The picture above doesn't quite show the true colour of it but its a very nice copper brown which I am in love with.

I purchased the Garnier Olia Intense Copper hair dye from Superdrug which was around £6.99 so it is a slightly higher priced of the home box dyes however I love the packaging.

In the box you get the squeezy applicator bottle, developer crΓ¨me, and the actual hair pigment which you mix together.

You then begin to apply the hair colour using the nozzle. I find it easier if I start around my hair line, then put the colour through my roots, and then put the rest of the mixture all over my hair and massage it into my scalp.

The recommended development time is 30mins however I only left it on 20 as I know my hair is very porous and soaks up hair dye like its going out of fashion and can end up being a lot darker than my desired result.

I then washed the colour out using the conditioner given with the dye, which smells gorgeous and has left my hair feeling soft and looking shiny.

All in all I am very pleased with the result and will be using this hair dye again in around 6 weeks when my roots have grown back.

I rate this product 4 out of 5* as the product is very nice however I would of liked it to be a slightly brighter colour!! But maybe if I go over it again next time I am ready to dye it, it will be closer to the colour shown on the box.

**I would always recommend doing a small patch test behind your ear 48hrs prior to when you want to dye your hair incase of an allergic reaction**

Lots of Love A xox
