Ion Color Brilliance Color Corrector for Permanent Dyes is a non-bleach formulation that gently removes permanent hair color. Will not lift or deteriorate the natural condition of the hair. Use for a slight color correction or for a color change.
If the hair has previously been colored with permanent hair color then an application of Ion® Color Corrector should first be done. Remember tint won't lift tint.
Ion® Color Corrector is the safe choice for removing permanent hair color. Easy to use for minimal to moderate color removal. Unique formula works by reducing the size of the artificial color molecules so they can be easily rinsed from the hair.
Use Ion Color Brilliance Color Corrector only as directed. Avoide contact with the eyes.

Removed gray/purple tones from blonde hair I am a natural blonde (around level 7) who uses high-lift blonde dyes (e.g. L'Oreal MegaBlondes) to lighten my hair. My lengths and ends were near-platinum when I decided to go a bit darker and more beige for the winter. I had used Wella toner T15 (Pale Beige Blonde) with 10 vol developer, making sure to only let it sit on my lengths for 5 min. Unfortunately a few sections of hair were very porous, and they sucked up all of the cool tones in the toner, leaving me with purple streaks. I first washed my hair with clarifying shampoo and baking soda, which took out some of the purple, but left behind a purplish gray, and also dried out my hair. Two days after the toning, I was still unhappy with the dingy grayish sections and decided to try the Ion Color Corrector. I followed the directions for the color correction (color change) and applied the mixture just to the gray pieces. The smell was unpleasant but not unbearable (perhaps because I only applied it to a few sections of hair). After 20 minutes I washed my hair twice in hot water with a clarifying shampoo and then quickly saturated it with 10 vol developer so the color wouldn't re-oxidize. After rinsing out the developer I followed up with a reconstructing conditioner (Joico K-Pak) and then a deep conditioner (Redken All Soft Heavy Cream). The color corrector took out the purplish gray and left a cool beige blonde that matched my unaffected roots well. My ends were a bit frazzled at first (probably due to a combination of the corrector and the previous baking soda treatment), and the odor lingered slightly, but a continued regimen of conditioning treatments fixed everything within a few days. I still have half of the product left over, so I will be holding onto it in case I have another mishap. Well worth it! November 5, 2014
Red/Orange/Yellow, but what I expected to see. First, I'm not a professional, but I put my daughter through cosmetology school, so I learned a lot. I've also colored my own hair for most of my adult life, and I also am comfortable with understanding the color wheel as I am an artist. Briefly, this product performed about what I had expected from going from dyed dark brown (level 3N at roots and 4N for the the rest of my long hair) and lifted 2 to 3 levels to basically a dark rust red/orange (with yellow blond streaks on hair underneath) for the top layers of my hair. It didn't affect my silver/white roots at all, which I was glad to see. I used Sally's Ion pre-color treatment (spray bottle) on my hair prior to using this product. However, in spite of following the color change directions, it was quite uneven, and reminded me of a patchy calico cat in places. I wasn't thrilled, but rinsed with the 10 volume developer to stop the process and to prevent it from further oxidation, as described in the instructions. I chose this product because I've enjoyed the Ion brand so far, and because it has been much more gentle on my hair than other brands over the years. I left it on for 25 minutes, which is longer than recommended, simply because I was hoping it would lift more color out of my hair. It didn't appear to make much of a difference though. I rinsed 4 times, shampooed with my L'anza Healing Moisture and rinsed again, used L'anza Tamanu Creme Conditioner, and rinsed again. I dried it without heat, and immediately mixed a new solution and did it again with the remainder of the product still left in the box. One box was enough to do my hair twice. You would need more if your hair is thick, curly, or coarser than mine. I will add that this product is the smelliest I've ever used since the old perms my mom used to make me get in the 1960's. I used a fan, opened a window, and it was manageable. However, my hair stunk horribly for 5 days. It also dried my hair out , both times that I used it. I should have deep conditioned it, but at the time I didn't own anything like that yet. So I used my regular organic coconut oil for 3 hours under a clear processing cap in an attempt to make it feel less like straw. I got smart eventually, and went back to Sally's store where they showed me a popular product called Macadamia Oil Masque by Hair Chemist, and it is an absolutely awesome product and smells wonderful! I will leave a review for that later. So, in retrospect, this product wasn't all I needed to get rid of the dark dye from my hair, but it was a start. I let my hair rest for a week, before bleaching it. But that's another review for later. This is the end of the review for this color remover product. However, if you are attempting to go to a platinum color, especially if you have long hair and are interested in "embracing the gray, please read further... If you are a woman who has used permanent dye for years and want to go naturally gray or silver/white, keep watching my reviews on here, as I will review every product used (most are from Sally's Beauty) all the way through to success hopefully, or my failure to achieve it. This was the very first step in a month long process of home color removal of Ion Color Brilliance permanent dyes (level 3N and 4N) which I've applied to my roots only for the past few months, but also applied over my entire hair about 3 times a year since I decided to grow my hair long about 3 years ago. I'd been a level 9 blond for about 10 years before this stage, and it looked great until I stopped tanning (part of my trying to stay healthy plan) and then I looked too washed out. So, I decided it would be easier to just go darker (my own natural hair color had been more of a Level 6, but my roots had started developing a "skunk stripe" of silver gray right down the middle part of the crown. This worked just fine for about 3 years, but gradually, I was having to redo that root area every 9 or 10 days, and it was getting harder to keep the color on it from fading off of the gray silver roots. I grew my hair out long during this time, and my "silver gray hair" at the roots were now coming in a really pretty silver/white, at the crown only. I was ready to stop with the products and "embrace the gray" movement. However, I don't want to wait another 2 or 3 years for my hair to slowly grow out, and I have really baby fine hair, down to middle of my back, and I didn't want to have so much breakage trying to bleach it quickly. So, I researched this subject for about 2 weeks, and honestly, there really isn't much information for seniors when it comes to going silver. So, I'm experimenting with my own hair on this journey to silver. Sorry about how long this is, but hopefully others will benefit from my experience with this process. October 8, 2014
Removed Permanent Black Hair Dye I had permanent black hair in my medium brown hair. I had about an inch of new growth and wanted to go back to my natural hair color. I have seriously thick hair that almost reaches my shoulders so I bought 2 boxes, but I only ended up using one box. After following the instructions EXACTLY my hair is just a touch darker than my roots, but you can only tell if you are really looking for it. I will absolutely recommend this product, as long as you FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. It does smell bad, but not as bad as a perm and not as bad as I expected. September 28, 2014
Met Expectaitions I had dyed my hair aqua and purple with ion brights and needed to get it out for school. I tried rinsing with vinegar (a home method from the internet), which took the purple out, but not all of the blue. I then attempted to dye my hair brown in order to get the rest out, but it ended up just turning green. This product had the best reviews, and after talking to the lady at the store, she told me that it might not all come out, but it would take a lot of it out. She also recommended doing it a second time. Anyways, I was expecting a bad smell, but not this horrific. I mean, it's okay once you stop gagging, and I've had worse smelling dyes. This completely took the brown out of my hair and took a lot of the green out. There's still a few streaks, but my hair is mostly back to its natural color of blonde. I didn't use the scalp cream you're supposed to rinse your hair with, but I don't think that would've made much of a difference. Overall I would recommend buying this. It did almost exactly what I was expecting, and it's supper cheap, so if you have to do it again, it would cost the same as a normal kit, but doesn't damage your hair. I just hope the smell leaves my hair soon. Also, when washing it out, I would recommend using a shampoo not meant for colored hair. I used my brothers man shampoo and I think that made a difference. I hope this helped, good luck! August 10, 2014

i have dark brown hair naturally but i died it red about 5 months ago. i didnt bleach it or anything so i want my natural hair color back. its a copper now. will it take my natural hair color away too if i use this product? or damage it at all?
A:Permanent or Demi permanent hair color requires a developer to deposit the hair color. Developer removes some of the natural pigment in order to deposit the new. How much is removed depends on the volume (strength) of the developer. Color corrector will remove the artificial pigment, however the hair will not be the same color as before dying. It will not remove additional natural pigment.
I've decided to let my hair go naturally gray after coloring it (dark brown) for many years. I'm thinking of using this product to make the transition (natural roots) a little less stark/dramatic. My question is, the ends were previously bleached for an ombre look and then redyed after I got sick of it. How will this product effect/look on the previously bleached hair? I don't want three tones of hair. (gray, brown, bleached) Thanks!
A:Go to "Reviews" and you will see at the right top just above the first review an option to "write a review."
A:It's right under the star rating area in REALLY SMALL TYPE [Write a Review]. It would helpful, if anyone from the website sees this, to actually make it a "button" instead of a "word link".
My hair is currently dyed brown, with blue and green. (I'm naturally dirty blonde.) I can't afford a hair salon anymore so I need to strip my hair in order to dye it a more natural color from a box. :(
Will it work?
Will it work?
A:Without knowing more about the color base of each dye you chose for the blue, green, and brown, it is difficult to determine that without a test strand. I highly recommend you perform one prior to using this product so you will see what the result will be. Also, don't use a box dye without knowing what the base is or you will likely come out a whole lot of different colors.
Sally's staff can help you with that if you go to a store.
A:This product is intended for removing permanent oxidation dyes, some of which are blue. It's not clear what sort of dyes you'd previously used, but it's unlikely that they're harder to remove than permanent oxidation dyes. Testing on a lock of your hair should give you a clear idea of how it would work with the several dyes you've used.
A:If you have fine and/or thin hair, I'd say it will definitely leave your hair dry and minor damage depending upon how dark you have dyed your hair and for how many years. I've since learned that both the dryness and damage is minimized by using a deep conditioning repair masque like the Hair Chemist Macadamia Oil Cream, also available at Sally's.
A:This product did not leave my hair damaged at all.
