Rated 4 out of 5 by DenzKoils So Far My Favorite Semi-Permanent
I am a 4b, low-porosity, natural and had given up using semi-permanent colors because they would rinse right out of my hair. Perhaps this will help someone else who has found semi-permanent doesn't work as well for them. The demi and permanent color caused deterioration of my ends. To really help increase the odds that it would work, I did a lot of things my initial times using the color. I start with a mudwash to remove all oils and build up. I used the ION pre-color treatment. I applied the color and let it sit for 45 minutes under 2 plastic caps and 2 of the metallic caps. I rinsed in cool to warm water. I used the ION after-color treatment. I skipped conditioning after. I used a leave-in and styler with no oil. I made sure I didn't wash my hair for at least 4 days after to let the color take hold.
After a few tries I have simplified my process. I still start with the mudwash. I skip the pre-color treatment and apply the color. I still do 45 minutes under the 4 caps. I rinse in cool to warm water but skip the after-color treatment. I do my leave-in and styler but no oil on the 1st day. I optionally do oil the 2nd day. I still wait 4 days before wetting my hair again.
I usually wet my hair every 3 to 4 days and my color last 3 weeks but it looks better if I do it every 2 week.
My hair is brown with large sections of gray up front. With the black color even left on for 45 minutes, it looks a dark reddish brown.
This color does what I need it to do and I'm not worried about drying my ends out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Optimist From really dark to wonderful!
" LOVE this product! Never used it before. I am a medium brunette naturally. I have been dying my hair for almost 20+ years now. Recently, over the last couple of years (I'm 40+ years old) my hair has turned almost a black color, even though the darkest shade of haircolor I have used is a medium brown. The ends, almost a blue-black. I wanted my "brown" back! I have used permanent, boxed haircolor my whole life. I had to remove the color, but I didn't want to bleach. I bought One and Only Color Fix. I mixed the 2 bottles of color fix together (the entire bottles) and put all of it on my hair and really rubbed it in and saturated every last strand. I then wrapped my head in saran wrap and kept "warming" my head with the blowdyer off and on for a 1/2 hour. I rinsed really well and then shampooed twice with a clarifying shampoo. I DID NOT use the developing lotion (bottle #3) as it said it may turn your hair dark again! So I threw it out. Honestly, I expected a mess. I anticipated it to turn out really uneven with grey roots and still dark ends. Well, it didn't do that, but it certainly wasn't pretty at first! I had grey roots, it felt really dry, and the rest of my hair was a ginger-orange color. I then applied an entire bottle of ION semi-permanent light warm brown to my hair. I used the entire bottle and really rubbed it in. It almost looked like wood stain and I was a little frightened my hair would turn black again! I wrapped my head in saran wrap again, warmed it with the blow dryer a couple of times, and left it on for 1/2 an hour. I got into the shower and rinsed and rinsed. Then I applied an ION color sealer conditioner and let it sit for 10 minutes while I continued to shower. I rinsed and styled as usual. I LOVE MY HAIR! The color is even!!! Not light on the top and dark at the ends like I feared! It's evenly colored, no grey, shiny, smooth, soft, and the best of all, it's a very warm light brown color with undertones of red! It's gorgeous! I haven't had a color like this that I absolutely loved in forever! I hope the semi-permanent will last a couple of weeks, but I have heard mixed reviews about it fading too quickly. I don't think I care, though. Even having to re-color once a week would be worth it to keep this color! I am now a semi-permanent hair color girl! I never would have though! (My hair, I would say is porous; it takes color very quickly (except the greys) and usually turns out on the dark side of what ever color I am trying to achieve.) I hope this review helps with your decision to use these products! "

I cannot put permanent dye on my head as I am allergic.
This is the only hair color I can use. I love it!
