Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coloring with ION care I use the ION color care system to dye my hair, shampoo & condition. The day before coloring with ION Creme Permanent Hair Color, shampoo & condition and apply the pre-color spray. Before applying ION Creme Permanent Hair Color, first use the pre-color treatment packet on dry hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My hair savior I read some of the reviews and decided to take a shot with this and I could not be more happy that I did. My hair has been colored and lightened so much that putting an all over color on it without getting darker or lighter patches is impossible. Not to mention my hair being so porous that even a level 6 will give me jet black hair. But not with this, nope, this has given me hair color hope again. I can use this and get a true medium brown. My only complaint is that I have shoulder length hair and need about 4-6 packets to cover my head, but at only a little over a $1 I can’t complain.

My hair a melon blonde really light will this produce turn my hair white that's what I want white

Asked by: Nisi_pieces
No, this product doesn't change the hair color in any way. It helps to absorb the color more even than without.

Do I need to use gloves when applying this? 

Asked by: jStacks90
You will be typically mixing color at the same time so gloves would help to be prepared for the coloring process!

Can this be used on dirty hair

Asked by: HeatherM86
Not if you hair has much hairspray, gel, moose or hasn’t been washed for a week.  So depends how dirty it is.  I usually color  my hair 2 days after I wash it and no gel, moose or  hairspray on it.

Is it okay to color without using the pre color treatment? Asking because my order came with to Africa or treatment packets and no pre color treatment packet

Asked by: redsbest
I color my hair regularly without using a pre color treatment.  It is best to use the treatment if you have long hair and need to pull the color all the way to you ends.
