Ion Color Brilliance Powder Lightener
Great quality and quantity!
I started using this almost a year ago when I starting getting into dying my hair and I've never used anything else after! It works great! My hair is naturally dark brown-black and it gets my hair to blonde (some parts get a tinge of orange) within the time limit. Recently my friend wanted to do an ombre. She got another type of bleaching product and it didn't do much for her black hair. So she went with my advice and got this. It got her hair to a orangy-light brown color in just 25 minutes! She sure was surprised and said Ion was definitely her brand from now on!
It smells, so be aware to take a break if it gets too much. It is also damaging for hair, but what bleach isn't, right? If I just touch up the roots and use a damage repair product, my hair gets healthier as weeks pass. So do think about a damage repair product like Ion's, One Hair, Hair Mayonnaise, etc. It's a big difference.

Finally! A lightener that works!
I have naturally very dark hair (almost black but with red tones instead of blue tones). I decided a few months ago that I wanted a change and wanted go blonde. I did my research on the blonde tones that work for brunettes (skin tones, etc.) and went for it .. with disappointing results. I tried every cool-toned blonde hair color you can imagine, even the high lift formulas with a 40 developer but nothing would get rid of the red tones in my hair (I just got lighter colors of copper). I read the reviews and decided to try this lightener. OMG!! What a difference!! I still have some slight red tones so I guess it will take more than one treatment to achieve the desired results on hair as dark as mine but this stuff is amazing! My hair is soft, silky and shiny ... the exact opposite of what you'd expect from a "bleach" job. Even when I was using frosting kits to highlight my hair, there was more visible damage. I can't wait to try it again to see what results I get this time!

I love this lightener! I dye my hair and other peoples' hair all the time and I always keep this product on hand and recomend it to everyone. It does an excellent job at lightening but is also far less damaging than other products. My hair has been bleached and dyed multiple time over the years and it still healthy. It works great, smells good and doesn't burn your scalp. :D

This bleach lifts well. It does dry out somewhat while on my head, but I just spray my head with a squirt bottle of water to get everything reactivated. My scalp does not itch when I use this bleach with the Ion developer, which is very nice. I just bleached my hair a few days ago also,and there does not seem to be very much damage. Scalp was a little dry for a few days and tight, but other than that, no burning on my scalp.
