I use Garnier Nutrisse, usually.  I feel like it’s less damaging than some others and the colour comes out pretty true and doesn’t fade.

When I used to dye my hair I always used Revlon—but it was more to do with the specific color I liked than the product itself. The conditioner was always the most important to me–but you can buy that separately online or in beauty supply stores.

I have fallen in love with John Frieda… The foam kind. This is the only brand that actually covers all of my hair with one box!!!! Any other brand I need 3-4 boxes!!! And his color is true to point… Other brands have screwed me color wise in the past!

@carlypaige:  

@graygodess20:  +1 I absolutely LOVE the colour I get from this line and the colour LASTS! The foam makes it easy to apply the dye as well! Look on their site and other sites for coupons! I have thick long hair to my chest and I use 2 boxes.

Also, it keeps my hair nice and soft and NOT fried like other brands tend to do to my hair!

I use garnier olia. I read some mixed reviews about it, but it leaves my hair in great condition and its a major plus that it doesn’t have that typical harsh smell of hair dye. It smells quite pleasant actually. That being said I’m using it to go darker and I can’t say how well it would work for going lighter. But for grey, I assume it will work well.

I’ve been using Clairol Perfect 10 for the last 10 years… I agree it is a heck of a lot cheaper than going to the Salon for colour (that can easily run me 10x as much at $ 150 with Foils from the time I want in to out with Tax & Tip).

I’ve been quite happy with Perfect 10, but I am finding it harder and harder to find Store that carry the shade I normally use… they make about 25 shades… but most stores only carry a hand-full.  Seems every time I want to buy it I have to run around to find someone that carries it in their “recent shipment”.  I am considering switching brands, but haven’t decided who I will go with…

 So I will be reading this topic with interest too.

@carlypaige:  I have shoulder length hair, but it is very very thick which is the reason I had to cut it. Just way too much to deal with. I had dyed my whole hair a light auburn-ish brown with blonde-ish (very subtle) highlights. When I went back to get my roots done with my stylist she couldn’t really match the color she gave me and I ended up with red-ish roots that didn’t match my base color. Meanwhile, I had spent about 250+ dollars for a color I wasn’t happy with. 

So I decided to take matters in my own hands and stop being afraid of at-home hair dye. I got the garnier olia. I liked the color I had gotten from my first visit, but I needed to get rid of my horribly mismatched roots. So I used the olia on my roots and blended it down to get a really nice ombre effect (without having to dye my whole head yay!). So now my hair is dark brown with a lighter brown/ blonde ombre effect. The olia worked really well and didn’t drip which is why I think I was able to pull this off lol. In terms of ease of use, I would give olia a 10. It didn’t drip, smelled good, and my hair was incredibly shiny when I was done.

@carlypaige:  No highlights here.  I have layered hair, it’s shoulder length when it’s curly, longer when it’s straight by a few inches, and it’s pretty thick and full bodied.  I’ve been dying mine the same colour for a while now, it’s a raven-wing black, and I only need one box for the Garnier to touch up my roots.  If I was going to strip it and dye it something new, I’d probably go for two boxes, just because of the thickness and body and to ensure even coverage without skimping.

@carlypaige:  my hair is right around where my bra buckles… So middle of my back… And I went from (at home blonde… More like pee yellow… On accident) to orange(suppose to be brown but that brand doesn’t like me) to the john Frieda who actually gave me the correct color. i have thin hair, but A LOT of it. 

 

When biying dye, if you buy semi Permanent it’ll wash out after like 38 washes but fade very quickly!!! I only use permanent and it lasts a good amount of time.

@carlypaige:  I like Garnier Nutriesse – I do find that it fades out pretty quickly but I don’t find it too damaging.

I use Sublime Mousse by Loreal.

I love it! It covers grey hair and gives highlights and lowlights.
