ion Color Brilliance Color Corrector for Permanent Dyes is a non-bleach formulation that gently removes permanent hair color.  Color Corrector will not lift or deteriorate the natural condition of the hair. Use color corrector for a slight color correction or for a color change.

If the hair has previously been colored with permanent hair color then an application of ion® Color Corrector should first be done. Remember tint won't lift tint.


ion® Color Corrector is the safe choice for removing permanent hair color. Easy to use for minimal to moderate color removal. Unique formula works by reducing the size of the artificial color molecules so they can be easily rinsed from the hair.

ion Color Corrector is rated 3.9655172413793105 out of 5 by 174.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Color Corrector I have ever used It's a good thing my client a) had short hair and b) only needed a slight color change. I had barely enough product to cover her entire head, and her hair is just below her ears. When I washed the product out, there was barely a change. A bleach wash would have lifted more color. Extremely disappointed. I normally am always impressed with Ion products, but this one was a complete fail. I will go back to using the One n Only color corrector. I can get up to six applications out of one box and the results are predictable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work I have used other color removers before, with mixed results. This one did absolutely nothing. I don't even think it faded my hair slightly. Very disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed with product after reading the positive reviews My hair color is naturally dark brown black. Unfortunately,I have to do root maintence every 3 weeks, so I dye the top portion of my hair black (box hair dye in natural black). I have been looking into changing my hair color to a dark chocolate, so After reading the many many reviews on this product, I decided to give it a try. (Since most said that they HAD dyed black hair and it worked for them). Here is how my experience went: -Bought one box and 2oz. 10v hair developer (not listed on the box, learned this from my research). My hair is 2 inches pass my shoulders, so I had to buy another box (after realizing the first try didnt do much for me) -I left it on for 15 mins. Checked it and left it on for another 5 mins (as directed on the box) -The box says "Pleasant Fragrance" This product smelled like I was giving myself a home perm by using old fish tank water. -The first try...It lighten my roots and the back portion of my hair. I followed the instructions and rinsed with the 10v developer. Washed my hair 5 times and conditioned with a hair mask (this is HIGHLY recommended as it left my hair feeling like I spent the entire week at the beach and didnt shower). Applied the product for the second time onto my hair (focusing on the dark portions and not on my roots). I did see some progress, but it did not lighten my dyed black hair by 2 shades. At most, it still looked black. This product worked on the back portion of my hair, since I rarely dye that section. It had partially grown out, therefore it worked. It didnt exactly work for me as it did on others. I would suggest saving your money and getting your hair professionally done. (I plan to do this too after learnning my lesson). My hair was in great shape before this, it left it dry as if I used heat products daily. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Do NOT use this on semi-permanent dye. I had some of the Argan Oil One n Only semi-permanent, magenta, in my hair. I foolishly bought this thinking that it would strip the magenta out of my hair. What it did was turn my hair a dark purple. Then I tried to lift (bleach) the purple out, but that resulted in permanently bright pink hair. Lol. The pink isn't coming out. This Ion color remover turned the semi-permanent PERMANENT. Don't use this on semi-permanent color! However, I've used this a bunch of times on permanent dyes and it works great. It does what you need it to do -- strips color out so you can re-color, without all the damage that other hair color strippers/bleaches cause. Get two packages if you have long hair, and don't forget to buy the 10% developer that you need (not included).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not meet expectations Purchased to remove very dark brown hair dye. Did not change the color of hair. Doesn't smell as awful as I expected (doesn't smell "good"). Did not damage hair. Just did not remove dye.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC This stuff is amazing. This is by far the best color corrector that I have ever used. Using box dyes was a big mistake, and I wanted to correct my color the right way. This product took of many applications of brown, professional red and even orange. My hair was back to a beautiful, natural dark blonde. It felt silky and healthy after rinsing. I had previously used Color Oops a few years ago and most of my color bled back through after a few hours. It was a waste of time and money and I was afraid that I was going to same experience with this. NOPE! I LOVE IT. I would recommend it to anyone who wants their hair back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work. My hair is currently green, but it's an oxidized, not a direct dye, color. I put this on, mixed the contents of both bottles with shampoo as the instructions said, and kept it on for 15 minutes. When I blow dried my hair, it was great! Bright blonde and really soft, but then I rinsed it with the 10 vol. In the span of five minutes it went from blonde to pale green. It had hardly fixed any of the color at all! The color was already extremely faded, all it did was even out the fading. I'm extremely disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I even followed directions to a T...but no luck. I had natural/highlighted blonde hair my entire life until a year ago, when an attempt to go brown ended up with me going black. I thought it still looked cool and decided to keep it. I wanted to go back to blonde, so I was hoping that maybe I would be able to lighten to even a light brown first. I know this is ambitious, but I'm a poor college student and can't afford color services at a salon. After reading dozens of reviews, I followed the directions exactly. What I was left with prior to the developer was orange roots and auburn ends. After the developer, I had blonde/orange roots and dark brown ends. My hair is long and required 2 boxes the first go. At $9 a box, I can't afford to keep doing this again to lift more color. I guess I expected it to do more the first time for the price.

How will this look on previously bleached and redyed hair?

I've decided to let my hair go naturally gray after coloring it (dark brown) for many years. I'm thinking of using this product to make the transition (natural roots) a little less stark/dramatic. My question is, the ends were previously bleached for an ombre look and then redyed after I got sick of it. How will this product effect/look on the previously bleached hair? I don't want three tones of hair. (gray, brown, bleached) Thanks!

Will this work on Hendigo? (Henna and Indigo combined)

I used a henna and indigo hair dye a few months back. I'm having the most difficult time removing it, even with bleach. If you were to name a trick to get henna and indigo out, I can bet I've done it. I have short hair to begin with and don't want to chop all of my hair off. Has anyone used this and had success with their hendigo?
Asked by: Sarah
The best removal of these 2 products would be to grow out and trim off. Unfortunately there is no product that is designed to remove either.

Will this get semi-permanent dyes such as Manic Panic out?

I have a very faded green shade of manic panic in my hair and I'm just trying to get the last little bit out. My hair is naturally a dirty blonde, also what will happen if you don't use a 10 volume developer? it wasn't mentioned that I needed it at the store I went to
Asked by: AnnaGal
No it will not. Color removers only removed oxidized color. They will not remove deposit dyes such as manic panic.

Will this remove the ION Color Brilliance Permanent hair color in Blue Black?

Im trying to go blonde and I need the blue black to be stripped out completely.
Asked by: Doll1
I would use the One n Only color remover instead. This one does not remove anything below a level 4 well at all.

Will this strip off vegetable based hair dye?

The lady in the store said my hair is at about a level 5, in terms of the dyed part of my hair. The dyed part is red. The last time I dyed my hair was at a salon using vegetable based dye. I am not sure if it was permanent.
Asked by: Anonymous
It probably is not permanent. Color removers only removed permanent color. If you aren't sure, do a strand test.

Why 10 vol?

Why is ion sensitive 10 vol required after washing the product out?
Asked by: 46philli
Hello and thank you for your question. What developer does is open the hair cuticle up in order to allow for any changes in color. The more that the cuticle is open the permanent changes to the color can be made.
