...She will only refund the product NOT THE SHIPPING FEE even though this was not the correct order. Unbelievable. Again, this is not the first time Esalon as been lame, but I liked the idea of coloring my own hair...


...The Colorfast is a much better product. I thought the oils in the Olia would be better for my hair, so I am very disappointed, especially for a Garnier product. Not sure if I will buy Garnier again..
