I've had a malibu crystal c treatment. I used a chelating shampoo. I used the same shampoo, I have an applicator bottle that is only for crystal treatments, it gets cleaned and I mix crystals with distilled water. So I basically followed the same steps as for a malibu treatment. I'm blonde, or I was blonde. Live in an old house with old plumbing and have hard water. So my hair takes a beating and it's already fine and thin and fragile. Did the Ion treatment, used a cap, left on for 20 minutes. Shampooed out. Hair felt dry, not soft like with malibu, odd. Stepped out of the shower, looked in the mirror and my hair was a bizarre ombre of white roots into apricot into orange. I freaked of course. Grabbed the T14 I had on hand, 10 vol and a splash of shampoo, mixed, put in for about 5 minutes. I now have white into ashy with very odd almost lavender pieces where the hair turned the darkest orange. I finally understand why people run to a 24 hour store and grab box color (which I'm not doing, but I get it). My hair may be cleansed and demineralized and that's great! Otherwise? my hair's ruined. My lovely just had it lightened 2 weeks ago platinum blonde is gone.

I have long hair and used two packets on my hair. I had bleached my hair to a yellow stage and then used a dark ash blonde that I wasn't happy with and didn't want to wait two months or so for it to wash out. I put the gel on my hair and left it there for 15 minutes, covered it and rinsed. The hair color was much lighter and was almost where I originally started. I did this treatment two weeks later after deep conditioning twice and all of the hair dye was removed. What a great product!

I have been using this product for YEARS so I was surprised to see some of these bad reviews. I (over)process my hair to super light blonde and also have horrible rusty water. We do have a softener but after a couple of months I can see my blonde start to get brassy or we'll run out of salt and then it really shows the rust. Anyways, I let this sit on my hair as instructed and also apply heat and my hair is back to super blonde again! I don't do it more than once every couple of months but I don't think I lose any hair other than normal. Much cheaper than Malibu too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by UpsetCustomer12 Do Not Use This Product!
This is awful!! I had clumps of hair fall out when I rinsed it out of my hair. My hair is now extra frizzy and it did not do anything it claims to do. I can not believe this! I researched it before using, and should have listened to the negative reviews. Such a disappointment! I will never use the product again. Beware!
