Lead Hair Stylist on Project Runway Season 14

Select desired shade. Mix 2 oz. of Ion Intensive Shine Demi Hair Color with 4 oz. ion Sensitive Scalp Creme Developer 10 Volume in a non-metallic bowl. Mixing ratio is 1:2 unless otherwise noted. All instructions are based on average texture, normal porosity; Fine hair is much more receptive to hair coloring where coarse hair is not.


Use Ion Color Brilliance Pre-Color Treatment to help ensure even color results from scalp to ends. A i5-minute cool down is recommended if heat is used prior to rinsing. Standard processing time is 10-40 minutes at room temperature and 10-15 minutes with heat. After processing, rinse hair thoroughly until the water runs clear.


Shampoo and style as desired.

Always wear gloves. Using a non-metallic bowl or tint bottle, mix 2 oz. of Ion Color Brilliance Intensive Shine Demi Permanent Creme Hair Color with either 2 oz. or 4 oz. Ion Sensitive Scalp Creme Developer 10 volume. Apply mixture immediately after mixing to dry hair. Do not store mixture; container may burst.


For natural, non color-treated hair (virgin application):  Apply  formula to the scalp area.  Immediately work through mid-lengths and ends.


For Retouching:  Apply formula to the scalp (new growth) area.  Process for half the recommended processing time, and then work formula through the mid-lengths and ends.  Finish processing. Because 45-50% of color loss is attributed to shampooing, it is imperative to use hair care products formulated for color-treated hair.



Always read the product packaging and inserts for complete directions, instructions, and warnings, and make sure to perform both the strand test and the patch test before applying your color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful and dimensional color I went to Sally's today in need of a change. I am normally a dark brunette with a slight red/burgundy undertone to my hair. The last couple trips to the hair salon have resulted in me having this medium brown hair with highlights ranging from white to yellow to orangish. I couldn't stand looking at it. I was ready to go back to my roots, literally. I purchased 3W Dark Warm Brown. It turned out perfectly! It even has a slight red tint to it and the deep brown is so rich and pretty. My hair is quite long and I was afraid I wouldn't have enough with just one bottle, so I left out some of the lighter pieces in my hair and died them last (I read somewhere that bleached hair will take color faster). Which turned out perfectly, because now it looks like I have some very subtle highlights! I followed the instructions exactly, and didn't experience any tingling on the scalp or anything. I did use the Ion Color Brilliance Developer for sensitive scalp-10. The smell was not even noticeable. I just hope it lasts a while looking like this and doesn't wash out too quickly. But if it does, I know what to this again! September 4, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by WAY WAY WAY WAY TO DARK I was so excited about this product so so so much. I had blonde hair and decided to go a little lighter and bought 7na. Well it did not come out that color my hair is literally black!!!!!!! I am so upset about this i want to cry!! Do not buy this. September 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not what I wanted I've been trying for so long to find a product that will help my hair get to a white blonde color.This didn't do anything for me.I left it on for 12 minutes and all it did was make my hair a brighter yellow.If I didn't have an extra bottle of toner handy to fix this mess I don't know what I would do.Maybe the darker shades are better but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with blonde hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works very well for Asian black-grey hair I've used Demi-P for about 10 months to cover more than 50% grey w/ great results every time! Using a colour-treated shampoo, it lasts for 40 days +/- (roots do show). I chose Demi because it allows the freedom to return to natural grey w/ fade out. Initially, I asked a friend to help apply it but now, I can do it on my own - I use a brush for the front and hands (w/ gloves, of course!) for the back. I tried using the brush at the back and got a real crick in my neck! ;) Any skin stains wash out easily but, to help, I do apply vaseline to all skin close to the hairline. Combos. that gave me the best results (mixed in equal parts): 4N + 3N 4N + 4G 3N + 4G At times, I've even added a bit (less than 1tsp) of 3 or 4 RV just for fun! :) August 15, 2015

I am looking for a product to make the silver pop! Have been using a purple shampoo but my hair still looks dull, not yellow just not vibrant.

I have natural white platinum silver and about twice a month use Purple shampoo even have experimented with pet store brands. I have a little white dog and he needs it

Another thing you might consider trying is Bragg's Apple cider vinegar as a final rinse.
A lot of times the dull look or brassy hair is from the water. Think about what it does to the toilet bowl that copper ring, or in some areas the water ring is green.

Use only vinegar by Bragg's it has the healthy enzymes to cleanse and nourish the hair shaft.
Recipe i use is diluted in a glass of water 1 part to 3 parts water. Don't be too concerned about the smell it fades away as your final rinse process put your head down in sink and ends inside the glass of water with vinegar recipe then pour throughout hair..lightly rinse.

This will balance the ph in your hair and make it incredibly soft and shiny.
If you still want color I recommend trying the Semi or Demi shades to enhance your grey.
Or maybe the vibrant colors of violet, blue, pink for all depends how young you are at heart. It washes out with no harm done.

Silver or Grey is the new Blonde "we can have fun too!"

All of the red dyes I have tried from these Demi's have been more of a scarlet red. Is there any dye that would give the hair more of a gingery red tone?

The Ion Demi already has clear gloss added to it. If you add additional gloss, it will dilute the color and make the color lighter. If that is ok with you, then you treat it the same as regular dye, so make sure you add 2 parts developer to any dye or gloss you add. So 1 ounce of gloss equals 2 ounces of developer, the same as the dye. If you don't want to dilute the color, then you can do the gloss after you have dyed your hair, in a seperate process.
