Garnier Olia caused hair to fall out.

I found Garnier's new product Olia hair color on the shelves at Wal-Mart this morning and decided to give it a try.I have used boxed hair color in the past and have always had good luck.

I used shade darkest brown 3.0. Following the directions I rinsed the hair color out in the shower and upon applying the conditioner noticed that my hair was coming out in clumps!

Not only is my hair thinner, damaged and NOT the color I thought it would be now I have to live with the fact that this supposedly "great" product made a lot of my hair fall out!I am so upset and would NEVER recomend this product to anyone else.

I used Garnier because Consumer Reports highly rated it and my hair immediately started falling out

Garnier hair color has some ingredient that has women avoiding it...I found out a little late and lost about half my beautiful hair! In my 50s it won't even regrow that easily! Got an expensive wig now to help until my scalp heals!

My hair is still falling out. I had all kinds of bloodwork done, everything fine. It is Garnier. Still my hair continues to fall out and I haven't dyed it since November! I think it has caused permanent damage to my follicles. It seems that way. I am utterly depressed. I unknowingly destroyed my hair....Planning to shave it off..Can't take seeing it all over the place and coming out in clumps in the shower anymore. :********* Shame on you Garnier. I'd like to sue your a$$es but money won't heal my scalp!

Has the hair loss stopped? Did you have to wear a wig? I'm having the same issues and are very stressed right now :-(

I totally agree. I've used Garnier hair color several times and just trusted their products, so I decided to use Olia. Well low and behold when my hair dresser started to wash out the color and shampoo my hair, it started coming out in clumps. I ended up having to cut my hair down to a short hair style just to cover the damage. I would not ever recommend this product to my enemy.

I also used this thinking it would be better for my hair than the ammonia based products or even salon color. I couldn't believe it when my hair started coming out in clumps -- not just breaking off at the ends but actually from the roots. I was horrified!
The hair loss continued for many weeks and I'm not convinced it will ever all grow back. This is one of the worst products I have ever tried.
I can't believe it's still on the market. Garnier, shame on you.

It took 3 boxes of hair dye 6 weeks apart to figure out the dye was making my HAIR FALL OUT!!!!!! And its not just ilia doing this I used garner foam and garner nutrisse. I went to the doctor had blood work came out perfect thought it was my new brush maybe burnt my hair nope. It was garner!!!!! I am really afraid I'm going to go bald my hair is so thin it barely goes in a bun. I have long hair to the middle of my back. The ends are like thin string now. I am depressed and don't know what to do. Will it ever grow back???? I'm so glad I found these reviews this is devastated. How many other people are loosing there hair from this ***????

It is 10/31/2015 and I just finished using Garnier Olia, medium goolden brown. I also noticed more hair than usual in my hands. Just hope not more comes out. My hair felt dry after using it. And the conditioner has way too much perfume in it to be hair-healthy. Disappointed because the color was a nice match.

Same thing happening to me. I used this product 2 to 3 months ago. My hair started to fall out since the moment i dyed it with olia. Lot of hair came off while Washing off olia. Then everytime i wash my hair, chunk of hair fall out everything. I can grap a chuck of it and pull them out. Still happening after 2 mons dying with Olia.

You need to make a complaint with you local Better Business Bureau. Make sure to tell them everything that happened to your hair.

freakin out

Aug 03, 2015 #1015447

six months ago I had the most luscious strong silky hair of anyone I've known. Kids would hang from it. Straight guys (like myself) would complement me on it at parties and bars, even though it was against their nature to do so and their jealousy showed a bit. No sign of receding hairline or thinning. Definitely one of my best features.-
Used Olia, 3days later hair went bone straight, then dry and tangly- didn't feel like my hair! Day4 it started falling out on floor, shower, hands- at an alarming rate. Started trying EVERYTHING to stop it -all natural hair products, supplements, doctors tests, diet changes etc etc.- has it triggered Telogen Effluvium? an allergic reaction? damaged follicles?It's been just about 7 months and still falling out 300+/day how can my scalp still be feeling this? And will it ever stop? I have less than 30% left and losing my mind

I just tried this on my gray hair. Left it on for 40 minutes and used the whole tube of conditioner for 10 minutes under shower cap. Very happy with results. I am skeptical about using it again after reading these reviews but so far so good.

To those fools saying you should have tested it out. Dont be so naive. Its a chemical reaction and normally wouldnt show on the patch test. I also tried it and mu hair was fine. Now there are two bald spots on both sides of my hair. I wish i checked this first. I have been crying day in day out. I dont know what to do am embarassed and my self esteem is destroyed. I washed my hair out today hoping itll stop shedding. Lets just pray there is a solution for this.
