Which brands do you hate? Which do you love?

John Frieda is my dye of choice - nice range of colours, good coverage and tones and really easy to use and wash out.

Olia was really poor coverage on my hair - worse than useless!

I like the Vidal Sassoon one or John Frieda.

Olia was terrible on mine, dried it out. The colour was so poor I redid it after 2 weeks.

L'oreal Excellence. I buy the product & my mobile hairdresser charges me £10 to do my roots every six weeks, beautiful colour & condition. The worst hair tint for my hair was in the salon using Professional l'oreal Majirel, too drying for my hair.

I like Loreal Prodigy and Loreal Feria - although my colour in Feria isn't sold in the UK so I purchase in US and NZ.
I find Revlon very drying and avoid.
Garner is okay but not as much shine.

Which are best or worst for covering greys
Tried an Avon dye colour was nice. Smelled nice but didn't really cover the grey

Tried Olia once, it set like concrete as I was applying it & washed out within a day! My favourite is Shwarzkopf Poly Colour Tint, although they don't have a wide range of colours, the Natural Brown is brilliant, not too dark and neutralises any red tones so leaves your hair a great neutral brown tone. Doesn't come with conditioner but at £2 a box, it's a steal! (And covers my dye-resistant roots too!!)
