Hello! To dig right in, let's get the disclaimer out of the way. I was accepted by BzzAgent to sample the following product. I received the product for free in return for my honest, unbiased review. There are affiliate links within this blog post, too.
Before receiving this hair color kit, I hadn't colored my hair in over TEN years! The last time I colored my hair, it was jet black. Since then, I have amassed a fair amount of graying hair, mostly at my hairline and temples. Below are my "before" photos.
I was rather apprehensive about the results after not having colored my hair for so long, and also reading a few not-so-great reviews of the Garnier Olia Medium Rose Gold hair color kit. But, I figured my hair will always grow out and I can return to my natural color in due time. So I dug in and did it.
And, like magic... 30 minutes, a shower, and a blow dry later... I have a hair color I'm really digging so far. I haven't been this close to blond in a very long time. And this is more of a strawberry/rosy blond. I'm liking it so far, for a change of pace. Below... I present to you... the results!
Would I use this hair color kit and shade again? YES! I may even give one of the other, bolder Garnier Olia shades a try sometime in the future (maybe even this one).
I'd love to hear from you. What do you think? What's your favorite hair color product or shade?
It's been around 7 months since I last published a blog post. During those months, we sold our previous home, moved in temporarily with extended family, moved into our new (old, Victorian) home, and our boys started another school year. Halloween has come and gone and now we're trucking toward Thanksgiving, Christmas, and another New Year. Whew!
In future blog posts, I will make use of affiliate links as a way to help fund my blogging work, home restoration projects, and more. To introduce you to a sampling of the affiliate links you'll begin seeing, I've rounded up a few, below.

We're entering the third month of 2018 already. I've been faltering at my fitness goals as my schedule is currently crazy and I have lacked the stamina to stick with healthier eating habits so far.
So, along with my Fitness with Friends group on Facebook, I'll be hitting the reset button of sorts and recommitting to regular workouts and cleaning up some eating habits.
Join us in Fitness with Friends for the March Photo-a-Day Fitness Challenge. It's guaranteed to be fun, and hopefully it'll also be a great motivating factor to return to healthy habits!
Wishing you a marvelous March, one that sees you moving closer to some of your most heartfelt goals!
