Garnier Fructis Herbashine Hair Color with Bamboo Extract - Review!!

So awhile back on facebook i saw a status update from Garnier USA for a free box of their Herbashine Hair Color with Bamboo Extract and decided to jump on a great offer. It was time to dye my hair anyways...i was tired of the copperness and wanted something different.

I got my coupon in the mail and went to town.
dontcha just love free stuff?
The color I decided on was  415 Soft Mahogany Dark Brown. Its a vibrant dark brown with the softest mahogany highlight in the sun. Its really pretty.
supplies: plastic bag, hair color, petroleum jelly.
ive read numerous articles that say to use the petroleum jelly around your hairline and on ears so that if you get haircolor on yourself, it swipes off with the jelly. This is the first time i have ever used this method and i cant believe i hadnt discovered it sooner. Ive been dying my hair since i was 16!! The bag was for helping the color soak in. Also never tried that before and i must say, it was very helpful. The bag also helped by giving my kids something to laugh at and keep the hair dye smell away.
The color ended up being a lot darker then i thought it was going to be but that could of had something to do with the color my hair was BEFORE dying it. My hair was a weird red, orange and brown color and since it is fall I wanted to go darker.
after color.

before color.

Review: Overall I really enjoyed my experience with this product. I have been using garnier products for about 2 yrs and have had nothing but great experiences. The hair color its self was simply to use and wasnt as strong smelling as other hair dyes are known to be. It took about 10 minutes for the color to develop. I usually leave it on a minute or two longer then the normal time. For me it seems this helps the color to last longer and have great results.
I well definately recommend this product for friends and will be purchasing again when that times comes (ill be going back to red).

Thanks for checking my review out. comments or suggestions are welcomed.

 until next time,
