Ion Color Brilliance Intensive Shine Demi Permanent Creme Hair Color is a state-of-the-art European Ionic Formula that is a luxurious, long-lasting, deposit-only hair color without ammonia. This hair color covers and blends gray hair up to 100% without lifting the hair's natural pigment. Also this hair color formula will allow same-day color with chemical relaxers and permanent waves.


Ion Hair Color’s superior quality, proprietary blends are formulated in Italy by our expert team of chemists to deliver unparalleled results. Our unique system combines the finest quality natural and exotic ingredients with powerful high-tech compounds to achieve exquisite, brilliant color with superior gray coverage. Ion Hair Color science relies on the power of micro-pigmentation—our microscopic pigment molecules oxidize slower, allowing them to penetrate deep into the cortex of each hair strand for long-lasting, fade-resistant color. Our formulas are PPD-free and enriched with Hyaluronic Acid, Argan Oil, Pequi Oil, and botanicals to nourish and strengthen hair from within. Not to mention, Ion Hair Color is gentle on hair, containing up to 38% less ammonia than the leading professional brands on the market.

The Ionic formula provides protection for stronger hair structure. Ion Color Brilliance Demi Permanent Creme Hair Color contains botanically derived nourishing ingredients with a refreshing fragrance. Thirty-two Shades plus Clear/00.
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.

Ion Color Brilliance Intensive Shine Demi Permanent Creme Hair Color 4.1 5 191 196
yes/no recommendation My hair is going gray. I also have ~50% medium brown roots. I have an A line cut just above shoulders. Very few know I'm not a blond. I love the variegated look I get when I use it 1:1; looks like I had it weaved. I do not like the brown bleed through immediately. I like the gentleness of the product as my hair was in good condition, but, I have dyed my hair blond for the last 30yrs and now it is in very good condt with same time consuming after wash conditioning. I had hoped to have color coverage (I do not fully# and not have to spend so much time condition afterwards #I still must.# I use heavy conditioner, leave on for hour with plastic bag on head, put heated towel on bag, rinse in cold water, blow dry on warm/cool for ~5 mins. My husband of 36yrs likes the results, so I will continue to use it. #I was only washing my hair x1/ wk due to the time it takes and my work commitments. I need to wash it x2/wk or the roots are very noticeable.) July 16, 2015
6rc-6.4 Dark Copper Blonde This review is for the Ion Color Brilliance Intensive Shine Demi Permanent in the colour 6rc-6.4 Dark Copper Blonde. Before I start I wanna just say I'm Canadian, so you're going to see the Canadian spelling of the word "color" throughout this review, lol (just wanted to mention that in case people thought I was spelling it wrong the whole time). First my hair history is as follows: I had been having my hair coloured at a professional salon for months and months. The colour I had was a level 7 copper, so a shade lighter, but I wasn't pleased with it. The colourist, no matter what I said, did not process the lengths of my hair long enough, so my roots were always brighter and the lengths would wash out so quickly. With red hair, you have to refresh your entire head more often than other people do with other hair colours, and for some reason this colourist did not seem to understand that. I decided to try sally's and to achieve as similar a colour as possible on my own, so at first I used L'oreal Techniques Excellence Creme (Permanent) in the shade 7.43 Dark Copper Golden Blonde. That colour worked for a while, but when it faded it would become too light for my liking, but I did like how it looked fresh because it was a nice natural copper redhead shade. When it faded, it looked obviously unnatural and sort of too orangey. I decided I wanted to go a shade darker, and I had heard good things about this colour and brand from a youtuber. Her name is Bethany Fae, if you want to watch her video where she talks about this exact colour. I liked how her hair looked so I decided to give this a try. By the way, my natural colour is a level 7 light auburn. My hair is mostly light brown but with natural golden and copper highlights. So I tried this colour and noticed numerous things. Firstly, it didn't take to my roots as well as permanent colour does. Secondly, while it did not take to my roots as well as the lengths, the colour at my roots looked a bit more vibrant and red-red than my lengths, but I could still see a bit of my natural colour peaking through a tiny bit right at the scalp. I don't mind this too much because my natural hair colour seems to blend fairly well with this shade. The lengths and ends of my hair looked more copper, but this difference was very very slight and only visible under certain lighting. At first, I hated this colour. I was in shock because it was a big difference. I did not have the experience of it going black or super dark, like many others report with this colour, it was the right darkness for my liking and accurate to the swatch at sally's. I felt, however, that the colour was too bright and scary and not natural looking. It is not my goal to look like Rihanna, or Jessica Rabbit, and I do not want neon or super true red hair. I freaked out and thought it looked like that (it didn't, it was just too bright at first but not that bright). My goal is to achieve a natural looking colour that a real redhead might have. It was, however, extremely soft and shiny and healthy looking, much more so then when I used permanent colour. After washing it a few times, however, the colour is much better. It looks very natural now, a nice copper redhead shade and it's not too dark, but also not too light. I have washed it probably about 5 times now, and the colour does not have a faded look. Those who colour often know what I mean by that. When a colour is fresh it looks rich and shiny, but once it fades it becomes less believable and dull. That has not happened, and it looks much more natural and rich then it did at first. I think next time I will leave it on my hair for less time. I left it on for 25 minutes, with 10% developer. I think next time I will try 15-20 minutes. But at the moment, the shine and health is still there, even after washing. A lot of the time with permanent colour the hair looks shiny when it's freshly done, but as you wash it the shine goes away. That has not happened, and I think hair colour looks better and more natural when the condition of the hair is good. With that, I think for a demi permanent this colour is really good. You just have to pick the right shade, and do a strand test to make sure it's the right colour before you put it on your entire head. I did do a strand test, but I only left it on for 20 minutes, so I think next time I will do that on my whole head. If you really need your roots completely covered, or you have greys, I don't know if this will work for you. But there is no harm in doing a strand test to figure that out. Don't just go into it blindly and put it on your hair without checking it first on a small strand. You are a lot less likely to have a disaster that way. July 7, 2015
Really Dark Colour I had blonde hair that had gone a little yellow and wanted to go a bit darker to get rid of the yellow tones. I chose Medium Neutral Blonde and put in colour corrector that was supposed to prevent my hair from going red. Well... it didn't work! My hair is dark auburn and the highlighted areas are deep, deep auburn. It's a million shades darker and redder than I wanted and that was the colour the Sally's employee told me would get me to 'light brown'. Despite deep conditioning my hair, it actually feels worse then when I use a permanent dye. I won't be using this product (in any colour) ever again. June 18, 2015
Too dark I removed my permanent hair color because I wanted a lighter color and I tried this brand that came out to be soo dark, it's even hard to remove it from the skin and the color result I got it's a dark brown, also I thought it was not going to cause any damage to my hair because it's demi permanent but turns out that it causes the same damage as a permanent hair color. I wouldn't recomend it to anyone unless you want to go dark. April 9, 2015

My hair is already colored, I usually use permanent color, but I like one of the shades in this range a lot and want to try it. My main concern is the color ending up wayyyy darker than I initially want it to be, since lots of people have complained about this turning out too dark. For reference, my hair is currently a level 7 coppery red shade, which I achieved using permanent color, and I want to try the 6rc in this range. I only use a 10% developer since my natural color is a level 7 and I don't need any lift, so I think I would probably use the same developer since I just want to go a shade darker. I want to go one shade darker, using the 6rc, but will it go much, much, darker if my hair already has color on it? And the color is permanent? Please help! Thank you

Ombre Effect

OK, so my daughter has long hair down to the middle of her back. she has blonde hair, a dirty dishwater blonde. on the very ends she has very light blonde from last summer. she is wanting to keep her natural color on top, and then lighten it a little more in the middle, and on the ends all over she wants it a slight bit lighter than it is, the ombre effect. my mother picked up ion color brilliance intensive shine demi permanent 10N - 10. Lightest Natural Blonde. we did a test strand on the middle part of her hair and the very end, I mixed 2:1 ...2 parts volumizer 10 to one part color. We laid each strand on a piece of foil, not salon foil, set our stopwatch and its been over an hour and neither lightened.. I understand that we're not supposed to use a metallic bowl only non metallic and this may be a stupid question but did I go wrong using household foil? was I supposed to add some sort of lightning powder? Where did we go wrong?

This was 4 weeks ago, so I'm not sure if you still need an answer to this or not. You'll need stronger than a 10 vol. developer to lighten the hair. 10 vol is only used for color deposit (going darker) You'll need at least a 20 vol to lighten the hair. The 20 vol is a bit more damaging than the 10 vol, but it's the only way you'll be able to lighten her hair.
