garnier nutrisse?

monica001monica001 Posts: 43Registered Users
how many of you like this brand? i have medium/dark brown hair naturally. i color my hair to cover some grays i have. i use dark brown to color my hair because medium is to light. i have the problem that my base gets red when the hair color fades. colorsilk would do this and excellence. herbal essences doesn't, infact i LOVE the color. the problem with that one is it seems the grays comes back fast.
i've heard good things about garnier nutrisse. at rite aide garnier nutrisse is buy one get one free. is it worth trying?

    I like their colors (I like the soft black), but it fades VERY quickly on me. I don't know if it's because I use such a dark color on my naturally ligh/medium brown hair, but it only stays really dark for about a week. I've had better luck with Colorsilk, and it's cheaper too. Your hair turning reddish may have more to do with the colors you're choosing. Try a cooler shade that will balance out the red. They usually have the word "Ash" in the name.

    brio-how long does your grays stay covered?

    Bailey422- i know if it has ash there wouldn't much red. the brands i mentioned before don't have ash just dark brown. i don't mind if it has red through the hair.

    I've used Nutrisse in the past and I love it. Rich color, didn't dry out my hair, very shiney, lasts a very long time without fading.
    3a/3b thick coarse WL dark brown hair. CG/Mod CG since: 5/4/05. Current products: Right now my hair is in such a tizzy over this winter weather we are hving that nothing really seems to be working. I need a haircut.

    I've LOVED nutriesse in the past, but I'm a little disappointed now. I colored it about 3 weeks ago (using the same color I always do) and realized last night that my greys are reappearing! :shock: :shock: :evil:

    I'm wondering if it's the shampoo I'm using? I've been using Jessicurl's GLS about twice a week. Do I need to use something different?

    Brio, I'm with you. It does a good job of penetrating my gray as well, and while my gray is about 15% of my head, it is very resistant gray.

    GN is my fave brand to use outside of going to a salon.

    Bailey, I forget, is yours a CG routine? While I love GN, I, too, had a problem with it fading on me. My stylist said it was due to the sulfates in the shampoo I used. I must admit, I did find my hair lasted longer if I invested in the "color saving" shampoo from the get go. Otherwise, my color faded rather quickly as well.
