I have a confession. I like to dye my hair. A lot. It’s not that I really need to. I don’t have a ridiculous amount of gray. I certainly have more than I used to, but mostly I just like to goof off with it. Because of my job as a college instructor, I usually have to keep my color pretty conservative. I stick with things in the auburn family which is pretty close to my usual color anyway.

Now that I’m out for the summer, I decided to go crazy. Literally. I wanted to see what blonde would look like. Yeah… you can imagine how that went. Bright. Orange. To be honest, I didn’t hate it. It was almost strawberry-ish. But a few of my good girlfriends assured me it looked dreadful. So I knew I had to head back to the store and make another change. I didn’t want to do something that would be more damaging to my hair so I called a few of my friends that are avid dyers and asked what the best course of action was. They all recommended Garnier Olia because it is oil-based and has no ammonia so it is healthier for your hair.
I. am. in. love. Seriously my hair feels so healthy and luxurious! I went with color 6.60, Light Intense Auburn. Because let’s be clear here: I still wanted something pretty outrageous. I still wanted a color that was clearly not my own. If I don’t have to go to work, I want to have fun with it. I am beyond happy with the color. But I am even more happy with the feel of my hair after this color. It feels healthier, thicker, moisturized, and just overall good. I will be using this product from now on!
