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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this stuff Really nice results. Had to get the orange out of my hair from other products to bring it back to an ashy dark blonde. Used 1 dollap with 2 parts 10 dev and nothing else. It fades fast esp with a bunch of washings and in the sun, but I like it puts my hair back to a normal color. i use it about every 4 weeks. Be careful to mix really well. I wouldnt recommend on blond, only dark red- it has a tendency to turn very blue on light hair at first but fades nicely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only product that really tones orange My natural hair color is what used to be called dishwater blond. To hide the grays, I've been coloring my hair for the last few years, using 7A to 8A, but no matter what color I used or what gold corrector I added, it always ended up orange. I read all the reviews for this product and gave it a try. Knowing how stubborn my orange is, I used about 3 pea-sized blobs in the Ion Clear demi and level 10 developer. After about 8 minutes, I started seeing blue cast in my hair so washed it out. My final thoughts... do not use too much!! When you squeeze it out of the tube, it's very tempting to think there's no way this will work, and add another blob or two. Don't do it!!! Listen to me and the others on these reviews. One or two blobs, that's it! Also, my ends turned more blue-ish while my roots still needed more time. I need to use the porosity corrector from Ion, even though this is just a demi color. With the porosity addressed and a lesser amount of the ash intensifier, I should be able to leave it on longer than 8 minutes and get more consistency in my results. But for this first attempt, I am satisfied. My hair doesn't look orange, even when sunlight hits it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff Nothing short of amazing but you have to know how to use it as it can be strong but does fade out nicely. I mix it with 10 dev and conditioner if my hair is getting too red and paint it in using a smudging technique to roots after a box color. It can go really blue, but it is better than crazy red orange. I feel like it is best used after a dark brown color that leans too reddish(which is all of them in my opinion).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome ! Perfectly toning my blond hair by using with 10 volume developer .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should be called charcoal intensifier With no other toner, less than half the tube in 3 oz of 40 volume developer on my mostly platinum/pale ash blonde hair for 15 minutes turned it really DARK gray blue, emphasis on the black-gray tones. Don't follow the instructions if your hair is blonde, they are totally wrong. Use 1/4-1/6 of what it tells you to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t work at all I tried this product twice. The first time I added only a small amount as directed to my color. When finished the blonde parts of my hair were coppery. The second time I colored my hair I used the entire tube and I’m still left with a bright copper color no ash at all. Definitely does not give any ash let alone intensify an ash color.

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.

Can this be used by itself with a #10 developer?

Asked by: qmpdeanne
Hi have have been using it with 10 volume developer and toning perfectly my blind hair . However sometimes have suggested to mix it with clear Demi and developer than use as toner. Too bad can’t find it anywhere at the moment

Can this be added to an Ion brand level 7.01 demi permanent?

Asked by: kaleid0919
Yes but your color will likely come out much darker.

Will this tone out red dye. I have about a level 6/7 red dye in my hair. I want to go back closer to my natural hair which is close to a 2n. I bought 2n dye, but I don’t want the red dye underneath to show through which has been a problem in the past.

Asked by: Ryakai8291
It will help kill the red pigment, but if red pigment is a problem for you, avoid N which has red in it, use # 3A, the only reason i say 3 is because # 2A is almost BLACK, bear in mind that after several shampoos red tones will come back somewhat and that's a problem for most Brunettes who dye their hair also be careful not to apply the dye on the ends as it will grab the color quickly because of the porosity, apply on the roots only and on the ends the last 5 minuted

when I use this with semi permanent dye, do i need to add developer?

Asked by: megoomegoo
I thought semi permanent dyes don't need developer? Wouldn't the peroxide affect the pigmements in the dye? I would think that you would have to do two different processes: first use the ash intensifier with lower vol developer, wash and dry, then apply your semipermanent dye to dry hair.
