Cosmetic Chemist Review, Ingredients: Garnier Olia - Oil Powered Permanent Hair Color - Is Water Or Oil-Based Hair Color Better?

Garnier introduces Olia: The first oil powered permanent home hair color. Unlike traditional hair color, Olia uses an exclusive 60% oil blend, with natural flower oils, in the colorant.

Olia achieves maximum color performance while visibly improving and restoring hair. BeautyStat weighs in on the benefits of this new hair-coloring system with the help of Dr. Rolanda Johnson Wilkerson, P&G Senior Scientist, and Judi Steward, resident BeautyStat cosmetic chemist and formulator .

The unique oil-based formula maximizes the coloring process to achieve lasting, permanent color results. It propels colorants deep into the hair, without ammonia, for pure, vivid, long-lasting color.

Visibly Improves And Restores Hair

Olia visibly improves and restores hair as the oils help to reverse roughness and dullness for more brilliant, dimensional color and softer, shinier hair with bounce.

·  Pure, vivid, long-lasting color
·  Softer, shinier hair with bounce
·  100% gray coverage
·  No ammonia

A New Sensory Experience

Dr. Rolanda Johnson Wilkerson, P&G Senior Scientist, and Judi Steward, resident BeautyStat cosmetic chemist and formulator, tell us the negative and positive attributes of using oil-based hair-coloring formulas. Dr. Rolanda Johnson Wilkerson said:

Negatives:

- Testing has shown that oil-based permanent formulas are not effective at evenly depositing color onto the hair. Additionally, color is not sustained for as long compared to water-based permanent hair colors.

- Oil-based formulas can also be hard to wash out of the hair, have reduced manageability (the hair is harder to comb through) and tend to weigh the hair down.

- Hair testing has also demonstrated that water-based formulas better preserve the integrity of the hair shaft, whereas oil-based formulas demonstrate damage to the cuticles with severely uplifted cuticles.

Positives:

Certain oils tend to be moisturizing for the hair, however, with so many other adverse side effects to the coloring experience, this positive attribute is minimal.

Judi Steward assured that the high oil content in the product will ensure moisturizing benefits.

    I got my hair highlighted at a salon recently and they used an oil dye – no bleach. I don’t think the color is as bright as usual but it looks great and didn’t damage my hair further. I think it’s good for people who are looking for something more subtle.

    I just bought a box of Olia and I’m about to try it out. I’ll let you know what I think. I thought it might be less harsh on my hair, and it’s been getting good reviews, so I’m willing to try!

    I’ve used the Olia hair color once and my hair looks great. I have very curly/frizzy hair and now it is smooth and shiny. The after-color conditioner, I believe, is what is especially good for my hair. I love it!! Wish they would sell just the conditioner!
