Ardell Gray Magic is a unique way to cover resistant gray hair, and bring vibrancy and intensity to ALL hair color.

 

Gray Magic Color Additive can be added to ANY color formula to achieve vibrant color and exceptional gray coverage. Formulated to help hair color penetrate deeper into cortex. Is also great for toning down ash (green) tones. Adds "punch" to red hair color formulations and helps to alleviate chlorine discolorations.

 

Gray Magic work works because gray hair is the result of the loss of red and yellow color pigment. Gray Magic adds concentrate red and yellow with wetting agents to replace the lost color pigment and moisture, to 'lock-in' hair color. When added to shampoos or conditioners, will prevent fading and oxidtation for tinted red or warm colors (10 drops per ounce of shampoo or conditioner).

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by really awesome product Being a stylist I am not used to using additives in my color but I tried this and I love it. It covers grey really well and I have very stubborn grey. I recommend this to anyone with this. If you use it right and leave it on the allotted time it works just fine. January 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Gray Coverage I have dark brown hair white an unfortunate section of VERY color-resistant white hair. I had been going to a stylist, but even she couldn't get it completely covered. I decided to try myself and pulled out all the stops. I can't say for certain that this Gray Magic did anything, since I didn't try the same process without it, but I can say I am so pleased with the end results, that I will continue to use it and follow the same process. Here is what I did: Washed my hair with Ion Color Defense Clarifying Shampoo (no conditioner) Towel dried and combed through Applied 1oz of Colorful Neutral Protein Filler using Roots Only Comb Applicator Bottle Waited 20 minutes Towel dried and combed through again Applied Vaseline as a barrier cream around face Mixed 1oz Wella Color Charm Liquid Permanent Dye 4NN with 2oz Wella Color Charm Liquid Clear Developer 20 volume and 10 drops Ardell Gray Magic Color Additive Wearing gloves, applied to roots using Roots Only Comb Applicator Bottle and then lathered into ends Waited 45 minutes Added a small amount of water, lathered and then rinsed until water ran clear Shampooed and conditioned as normal Perfection!

Rated 1 out of 5 by No gray coverage at all The grays at my temples were just as obvious with this product as without. So, a waste of money. Just found No Gray (another additive) and 100% gray coverage! woot! April 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! I have been coloring my hair (covering the gray) for about 10 years. In the last few months, my grays have become very stubborn and resistant to color, no matter what brand of color I used or how long I left the color on. Searched online and bought Gray Magic at Sally after reading the reviews. Used it last night with "drugstore" color and it made SUCH a difference! I purchased the small bottle, rather than the packet that is seen here. It was on sale and I'll have plenty of product for another 4 or 5 colorings, at least. I followed the package directions and mixed a 1-to-1 solution of color and developer, adding 5 drops of the Gray Magic. Yes, it does stain your fingers orange, so put your gloves on when you are ready to add it to the 1-to-1 solution. (However the stain came off after a few hand-washings.) I, too, was apprehensive when the "tint" solution turned orange, but went ahead and painted it on the areas where I have my most stubborn grays (crown and the part in my hair). Then I mixed the remainder of the color and developer, adding 20 drops of Gray Magic. It turned orange too, but after a bit, the color normalized. I applied this mixture to the rest of the hair at the root level on my crown, the more resistant hair on my head. Waited 30 minutes and applied the remaining mixture to the rest of my hair so that the color would be even. The verdict - complete coverage of the gray!! I could see a slight color gradient between the tinted resistant root area and the rest of the hair, but nothing I will complain about. I used a cooler shade of color to compensate for the red tones that other reviewers mentioned. Gray Magic is MAGIC in a bottle! February 2, 2015

It says on the package that it can be used with any hair coloring product, but doesn't list bleach specifically. I mixed it with a plum brown I had bought and it turned my hair green, so I personally don't recommend it to anyone, but my result might not be your result. I usually bleach my hair platinum blonde during the summer, and color it darker in the fall and winter months, and after I seen the emerald green it turned my hair, I had actually told my husband I was so glad I didn't use it with the bleach because I could only imagine the color I would've got then. It turned the color mix a rust color, which I thought was odd, it's a very dark reddish brown when it comes out of the package, so I'm not sure you'd actually get the blonde color you desire putting something so dark in with the mix. Best of luck!

Yes, that's what it says to do on the packaging. This stuff turned my hair green, so I personally don't recommend it, but to answer your question, yes, you do add it to your color mix before putting on your hair

A:
Yes, but only add about ten drops to your hair color tint according to Sally's site. If you have a sensitive scalp beware of red/orange tones. Do a patch test and you might be just fine.
