Garnier Nutrisse Color Wax

Hair color waxes are temporary dyes designed to cover grays or add pops of color without causing damage. Most varieties consist of beeswax, petroleum jelly, and quick color pigments and tend to penetrate less deeply into strands than traditional dyes, providing gentler care that won’t make hair feel crunchy – an advantage Hutchins says is evident by his experiences using them on his coat.

Garnier Nutrisse products feature oil-powered Olia dyes in several natural shades for easy application and non-drip formula, along with an after-color conditioner enriched with avocado, olive, shea, and argan oils for healthy hair.

Pierce advises starting by washing and conditioning damp but not drenched hair, following the directions on the box for both full head and spot applications, and then following its instructions for both. For optimal results, she suggests using Mizani Moisture Fusion Gentle Clarifying Shampoo before coloring for best results.
