Garnier Olia haircolor?

Has anyone used this hair dye? I am looking for a permanent color to cover greys without ammonia and came across this line.
I just started the curly girl method 4 weeks ago and I am hesitant to color my hair period , but those greys have to go :-)
I don't want to use henna, I used henna in my teens and twenty's and while I had great results with the red tones trying to get my natural color of medium brown did not work so well.
Any input is greatly appreciated!
I just used this product last week and I really like how my hair turned out. I usally stick with a color close to my natural golden blond color when I dye my hair but rhis time I went with a dark blonde I really do like how it turned out and it still looks very natural my curls were not damaged at all and my hair is soooo soft oh I color my hair to cover the few grays I have and it did a fantastic job

Thank you for your input.
Did you use it over "naked" hair or did you wash out all the products before ? I was thinking about washing my hair the day prior and not use anything in my hair.

I bought this a week ago and finally used it today. I got the Medium Brown shade. I have to say that I will never use this hair color again! My hair feels so dry right now that it is driving me crazy! In addition, it did not fully cover my grays.

The good:
It had a pleasant scent.
It went on effortlessly and I seemed to get really good coverage.
It didn't drip at all even though it seemed like it would with its thin consistency.
The color is nice. I went from a medium golden brown to a medium brown.

The bad:
Dry Dry Dry Dry hair! I didn't expect this since it is supposed to be oil based. It didn't feel bad going in but as soon as I tried to rinse it out it was a dry tangled mess no matter how much conditioner I used.
It did not completely cover my grays.

I have been coloring my hair for over 10 years and have tried pretty much everything out there. This one has to be the worst! So far my favorite is Revlon Color Silk.
CO Wash: VO5 Clarifying Conditioners
Conditioner: Curly Kinks Deep Conditioner and Leave-In
Styling: Still searching but currently using HESMU

2A, Medium Texture, Normal Porosity
I love it! Leaves my hair in GREAT condition! I have practically black hair and use the Darkest Brown shade and I love it. Very natural looking, no harsh chemical smell or feel and I think my hair is actually has more shine and is smoother with less frizz after I use it. e

I have to color my hair every three weeks to avoid gray roots (bummer, since I am only 42, but whatever) because my hair is so dark, however, I use half the stuff and just do my roots and then use the rest up next time I have to color. I also use the conditioner that comes with it once a week.
HG's: (I alternate)
DEP Sport Gel or B&A Gel
Naturalle Gel (used like CK - a ton in sopping wet hair and mostly air dry)
all used over a leave in

Method: Air dry 20 minutes, then blow dry for volume.

2/3 mix waves/curls - coarse, frizz prone, med. thick, porous, at-home color for gray, protein sensitive but I still need it sometimes, glycerin-sensitive (I think) in high humidity, NOT CG, wash with regular S&C 2x a week.
I just bought this stuff and will be using it tonight!
IMO it's gimicky, the oil is just mineral oil which won't do anything to protect hair from damage. Better to use a regular box dye over hair that has been soaked in coconut oil for hours beforehand.
I just used the Garnier Nutrisse nourishing color creme with avocado + olive + Shea oils and I really like my results.

saw an ad for this and was curious - but since the reason my hair is so damaged now is due to the last year of coloring and flat ironing. I'm thinking I will take a sabbatical on BOTH and like my with my grays.
