Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifted Red! I went to the salon and through some miscommunicating, ended up with permanent red dye (20 vol). My roots were pretty natural grey (about 50%) and the rest of my hair had 5N on it. Loved the red at first but as it faded, I got pink hot roots. I used this clarifier twice and am thrilled with the results. It's pulled out most of the red (which was applied about six weeks ago) and had even started lifting the 5N I had in my hair (I plan to bleach soon so that isn't a big deal). Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works MIRACLES! Thank you thank you thank you thank you!! My hair has been absolutely destroyed by our hard water! I could hardly run a brush through it. It seemed like it was turning into straw. NOTHING was absorbing into my hair, shampoo and conditioner took me 5 hours to rinse out. Worst of all, I already have eczema that sometimes flares up on my scalp and there was a disgusting film on my scalp that made my hair impossible to style and I was so embarrassed that I had to put my hair (that is halfway down my back) up every day. Finally as a last resort and before doing a whole head bleach- I tried this stuff. It got rid of 2 years of buildup from my scalp that 3,000 other things I've tried couldn't. I will be buying and using this regularly from now on. Don't hesitate to buy this, it is a great price and works miracles!!! Thank you ION, I'm sooooo happy!

Should I set under the dryer with this

Asked by: Brandi46
It works better if you do. 10-20 min under dryer.

Will it remove chlorine build up?

Asked by: Marthaprice
I use it for hard water build up and it works well, so I imagine it would work well for chlorine build up.  It does tend to make your hair dry so I always use a deep conditioning mask after clarifying and would not use immediately before having a chemical process done.

How often can I use this? I didn't leave it this morning but could only leave on 10 mins. Can I do this again the following day?

Asked by: Mabeckers
If I fail to leave it on long enough , I have used it again the next day or week.Keep in mind that heat makes it penetrate better.I put a cap on and sit under my bonnet dryer or take a blow dryer on med. heat to it for a few min. Just make sure you condition your hair after every use.

How soon can I use it again after applying? Do I have to wait? And also, I've have very light natural blonde hair, when I moved to another state with well water, my hair now is so orange! I've tried everything! Even stripped it! It's still orange! HELP!

Asked by: Cassi1984
White vinegar left on for 3 min daily between treatments will help. As well as shimmering lights purple shampoo

Will this remove all of my faded green hair?

Asked by: Maddie22
Hello, The Ion Crystal Clarifying treatment will only remove build up from shampoo, conditioner, product and hard water. You want to get the Ion Hair Color REMOVER. The package does look very similar. Follow the directions and it will remover the green hair color. Good Luck :) Saron Girl

After using this product do you need to dry your hair completely before dying? 

Asked by: Rachel p
Yes, you would want your hair dry if you’re dying your hair after this treatment.. The only thing you would want or can add to wet or damp hair, is the toner (if needed)  after you’ve dyed your hair. Hope this helps. Good luck (^ ◕ᴥ◕ ^).                          (⊃。•́‿•̀。)⊃━☆゚.*・。゚
