Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't absolutely nothing I applied this all over, applied the color to my ends first, then my roots, I don't like hot roots. My roots still came out way lighten then the rest of my hair, and my ends didn't even lighten. My hair wasn't drenched in this product, I only dampened it. Glad it worked for others but it did not work for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really does work! I was skeptical about how well (if at all) that this would work. ITS AMAIZING. I took a shower, shampooed my hair, and used it as conditioner, and combed it through, without washing it out. I left it in for 4 hours, and I am amaized at the vibrancy of my color, and how soft my hair is. I've been doing my own hair for 10 years, and will never again leave this out of the process. FYI apply it to wet hair, comb through, let dry, apply color. AMAIZING.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used the packet, not spray I used the single use packet, not the spray. I put it all over my very porous ends and wow, I will never color without it. I have colored my hair for years and I always thought I didn't need it but this time, I used a Demi instead of permanent so I picked the pre color treatment up and my color is even! It's fantastic! Just try it :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job! I used this in the sample size after the Ion color remover. I had extra leftover dye on my ends and didn't want it to get any darker with my new color. So I focused this product on my ends and then put the rest all over my hair. I followed the instructions exactly. It worked well and left the new color far more balanced than it was prior. I recommend this for all color processes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is AMAZING I dyed my hair green, blue, and purple with Manic Panic and BTZ. I accidentally started applying dye (Manic Panic purple) without the pre-color treatment, but then remembered to put it on the rest of my hair before applying BTZ blue and Manic Panic green. The purple faded out within 2 weeks but the blue is still holding strong. It's been 3 and a half weeks and my color is still bright. If you're dying your hair, use this stuff!!!!!! It'll make all the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pre color product This item really worked well on my poor over colored,permed hair! It allowed my hair to grab the color and have washed it again, and the color has stayed even. Will be buying more of it for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Because I am worth it! This product makes a very big difference! I have coloured my hair for 35 years before discovering this and will never colour again without it. Have been using it for about 2 years and my results are professional, consistent, and beautiful! Definitely buy more than one so when you are in a pinch you have it ready at hand and get the post colour treatment as well for a perfectly professional colouring that really lasts, (Lightest champagne blonde) until the next time you colour.

If I don't use the whole packet, can I put it in a sealed bag and save for my next color application?

Asked by: COSCurls
Yes. Just make sure it is completely sealed so it won't dry out

I am using the Ion color brilliance color corrector, do i also need to apply this product after the corrector?

Asked by: Breanna10
Not sure I would consult with an Ion professional. All I can tell you is that I used this product without the color corrector and my hair turned out very nice.

How long do you have to wait to put the color in after putting this on?

Asked by: Amberdawn95
No waiting, but do not saturate your hair, it should be just barely damp.

I have lighter ends from an ombré but I'm about to dye it all a midnight blue black I would rlly love for my ends to come out more on the blue side if I use the pre color treatment would that help it or make it all more black? 

Asked by: Bjnz2012
It doesn't affect color. All it does is make the color stick to your hair longer so you don't need to dye it as often. But if you want lighter ends it will depends on the pigmentation of the dye you want to use. Test a small piece of your hair rather than dying your whole head to see if it will be the lighter color you want.

Once you apply this product, do you still apply the dye to regrowth first and then the rest of the hair, or can you just apply the dye all over?

Asked by: Keelaaaaa
I applied it to all of the hair but I was doing a slight color change. I will say it did an excellent job of the color being even!!!

I have brown hair and want to dye my hair black will I need this?

Asked by: carl zarate
This product is supposed to be used to even out your color results. If you've done a lot of chemical processes or your hair is damaged, then yes I would recommend it.
