Rated 3 out of 5 by from AWESOME BUT PROCEED WITH CAUTION For months my hair stylist could not get my hair to go ashy. Seriously, it would not work. So I used essentially the whole little tube of this thinking my hair wouldn’t take it. AND OMG. It worked... too well. My hair is a lovely shade of teal-ish gray. Hoping and praying it’ll come out in a few washes. Otherwise I’ll have to resort to drastic measures....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what it’s supposed to but add a little First of all I did use two ash additives,this one and the wella cooling violet to get rid of my yellow and orange tones. I used them with wella demi permanent 8a dye and I noticed son after applying it to my hair it was turning a very ashy color and in the back (the lightest part of my hair,basically platinum) it was turning bluish grey. I freaked out,washed it out after only 5 minutes using shampoo and dish soap to help strip it. So my hair turned out a weird bluish grey color,it wasn’t horrible but I didn’t want it. It did manage to mostly fade after only 2 washes (dandruff shampoo and dawn dish soap) so be careful,this happened after I added a 1/4 of the tube and a capful of the wella additive to 6oz of dye.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrific experience! I dyed my three inch dark brown roots (creme bleach w/ 30 sensitive scalp developer) to update my sandy bleached blond hair. Then I added 1oz. of this product to color correct the orange-yellow brass - and yuck! My bleached roots looked like Mac n Cheese! After frantically coloring it over with the Ion conditioning color treatment (natural brown and titanium) - it bled out into brass into a rose orange fade with blue streaks! Three weeks later (and some centerline hair loss) my hair settled into a rose blond. Good enough for now, but I’m getting sick getting bad results on products that have false advertising.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be careful!! Long story short - I went into a stylist about 2 months ago to have her remove the brasiness in my dark blonde hair (with lighter blonde ends). She turned my hair jet black. She bleached it to lighten it, didn't lighten it enough, then put a permanent color over it. She left it more red than it was to begin with! Since then I have been trying to correct it myself. Today I added highlights then mixed this ash intensifier with Ion light ash blonde dye, and now my hair is blue! Well, the brassiness is surely gone so mission accomplished there. I used the entire tube, I don't recommend ever doing that. Hoping it will fade to a pretty ashy blonde, we will see. Photos of before this and after.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little tricky A little tricky to use but once you figure out a good ratio for the look you're wanting to accomplish it works well for removing orange/red/yellow tones from hair. Too much might leave hair looking greyed and too ashy and too little won't properly remove tones so there's definitely a sweet spot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Removes overall brassy tones I bought this toner 2.5 months ago before I wanted to dye my hair teal. MIX 2-3 DOLLOPS WITH ENOUGH TONER TO COVER YOUR PROBLEM AREA/ALL YOUR HAIR. I left it on for about 30 minutes. I had prelightened ends but wanted to add more blonde all over. My hair turned a horrible orange after bleaching. However, my friend didn’t correctly mix the bleach or toner and I absolutely hated walking in public. I used an Ion Creme White Toner and this ash intensifier in separate applications (probably could’ve done it all at once for better results). It didn’t give me perfect blonde results, but it helped to lift the brassiness out and let me achieve my end goal of teal hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you’re looking for gray hair, this is it I added in 1/4 tube to my toner and my hair is GRAY. I love it. It’s like gunmetal color. If you don’t want gray it still works good as a toner additive to get super ashy hair just only use 1/8 tube instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neutralizes Orange I had bleached, then colored my hair, from an auburn brown, to a level 9 strawberry blonde, but wanted a cooler blonde. Nothing worked, even high lift ash blonde dyes. I then used a level 10 neutral blonde w/20 volume peroxide, and added 2 pea sized drops to 6 oz. of mixed color and now have the perfect true ash blonde. BUT this does darken the blonde shade used, as it became a level 8 ash (versus 10). Worth it though, to get rid of the orange/yellow tones! Will continue to use!

Asked by: holly1234
I tried doing that.. Didn't seem to do anything. I have, however, pot a few drips of blue food color in my conditioner.. That worked! Lol. But be careful.. Little goes a long way..

How mush intensifier do I add to the color

Asked by: Yolie777
If you’re doing a level 5 or higher; Don’t add it to your color. It will turn your hair blue. I suggest doing your color without it. Once you’ve finished your color and rinsed and dried, then use this stuff. Mix pencil eraser amount with a few drops of water to liquify it, then add that to 2-4 ounces of 10 developer and mix. Then turn on your shower (yes, before you put it in your hair). Then as your putting it on, the minute you see blue, jump in the shower and rinse. You’ll love the results as long as you don’t leave on too long. 10 minutes max- that’s why I say don’t mix with your color-because you leave the color on longer. Hope this helps!

It says "Creme or liquid"...are there two separate products? I have this, and it is definitely a creme...difficult to mix with a liquid color. Can I get a liquid somewhere or somehow make this a liquid?

Try using a whisk

Can this be use with a toner t14? 

Asked by: Bee long
I mixed it and as the other person said, I don't think it mixed well because it turned parts of my hair very blue. I wouldn't recommend.

How do I remove the blue hair I got from following the directions:(

Asked by: Blue Deb
It may already be too late to remove it. This happened to me and my stylist said to wash my hair asap, repeatedly, with Dawn blue dishwashing liquid, then condition. If it's already set, use a semi-permanent color close to your own (or Roux temp. color a little darker than your shade). The blue will wear out before it all grows out, so don't worry.
