    ion Color Brilliance Intensive Shine Demi Permanent Creme Hair Color is a state-of-the-art European Ionic Formula that is a luxurious, long-lasting, deposit-only hair color without ammonia. This hair color covers and blends gray hair up to 100% without lifting the hair's natural pigment. The formula will allow same-day color with chemical relaxers and permanent waves.


    ion Hair Color’s superior quality, proprietary blends are formulated in Italy by our expert team of chemists to deliver unparalleled results. Our unique system combines the finest quality natural and exotic ingredients with powerful high-tech compounds to achieve exquisite, brilliant color with superior gray coverage. ion Hair Color science relies on the power of micro-pigmentation—our microscopic pigment molecules oxidize slower, allowing them to penetrate deep into the cortex of each hair strand for long-lasting, fade-resistant color.


    ion's formulas are PPD-free and enriched with Hyaluronic Acid, Argan Oil, Pequi Oil, and botanicals to nourish and strengthen hair from within. Not to mention, ion Hair Color is gentle on hair, containing up to 38% less ammonia than the leading professional brands on the market. Unlock your hair’s true potential with Ion’s cutting-edge, salon-quality color science and bring home vibrancy like never before.


    The Ionic formula provides protection for stronger hair structure. ion Color Brilliance Demi Permanent Creme Hair Color contains botanically derived nourishing ingredients with a refreshing fragrance.

  • Select desired shade. Mix 2 oz. of ion Intensive Shine Demi Hair Color with 4 oz. ion Sensitive Scalp Creme Developer 10 Volume in a non-metallic bowl. Mixing ratio is 1:2 unless otherwise noted. All instructions are based on average texture, normal porosity; Fine hair is much more receptive to hair coloring where coarse hair is not.


    Use ion Color Brilliance Pre-Color Treatment to help ensure even color results from scalp to ends. A five-minute cool down is recommended if heat is used prior to rinsing. Standard processing time is 10-40 minutes at room temperature and 10-15 minutes with heat. After processing, rinse hair thoroughly until the water runs clear. Shampoo and style as desired.
  • Demi-permanent hair color is the most versatile kind of haircolor, because it lasts much longer than semi-permanent color (up to six weeks). It is sometimes referred to as deposit-only hair color or non-lift deposit-only color, because it’s formulated to deposit (add), but not to lift (lighten) color. Demi-permanent color is ideal for blending or covering gray (up to 100 percent!) and enhancing, deepening, or changing the tone of your natural color. It also adds intense shine.


    Always wear gloves. Using a non-metallic bowl or tint bottle, mix 2 oz. of ion Color Brilliance Intensive Shine Demi Permanent Creme Hair Color with either 2 oz. or 4 oz. ion Sensitive Scalp Creme Developer 10 volume. Apply mixture immediately after mixing to dry hair. Do not store mixture; container may burst.


    For natural, non-color-treated hair (virgin application):  Apply  formula to the scalp area.  Immediately work through mid-lengths and ends.


    For Retouching:  Apply formula to the scalp (new growth) area.  Process for half the recommended processing time, and then work formula through the mid-lengths and ends.  Finish processing. Because 45-50% of color loss is attributed to shampooing, it is imperative to use hair care products formulated for color-treated hair.


    Always read the product packaging and inserts for complete directions, instructions, and warnings, and make sure to perform both the strand test and the patch test before applying your color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ion Demi 8N As with most demi hair colors, this one will come out much darker than the actual level you're trying to achieve, so be aware of this - takes some time to fade out. I didn't love the tone of this hair color and will not buy it again. Specifically, it came out very flat and gray toned, almost as if it were an ash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use & great color The very helpful lady at Sally Beauty suggested I try the demi before the permanent color to make sure I liked the color. I'm a newbie at coloring my hair at home and wanted something very easy to use and this is it. My hair is just as soft as it was before coloring, unlike when I tried a drug store box brand and it felt like straw after. I'm very happy with the color and will use the permanent type next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've used it for 8+ years. Love it I've used it for many years and my hair looks great. Covers my greys, at least for 3 weeks because my hair grows so fast. Only bad is that the stock in stores is very erratic... I have to go several times to all stores in the area to find the color I want. Sallys needs to improve the product availability at stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I wanted shiny healthy-looking hair without changing my natural color and that is exactly what this did for me. I purchased the color 00 Clear in a store on the advice of the saleswoman. Off topic, but I gotta say, each time I've been in the Sally store, I've come away with a product I'm happy with. This product made my hair look years younger! My hair came out shiny and soft and so far its held up through about 6 shampoos.

I have mixed grey and black hair, would love to see hair all white one color hair, what do you recommend

Asked by: Neddie85
I have dark auburn brown and some gray hair. I purposely use a color a few shades lighter so that the grays look like highlights. I would guess if you choose a color that’s the same as your natural color, it will all look the same.

Can i use demi color over permanent color that i don't like? Want to put demi on grown out roots, can i put it over the permanent color as well?

Asked by: MLM032758
Yes you can put on your roots to cover the new growth, use 20 vol. It you put it over the permanent color , (use 10 vol) but you will only be depositing color, Demi color does not lift color only deposits color.

For short hair do you still use the whole tube of color

Asked by: SheilaJo
I have used half a tube of a demi permanent and half of the colorant of a box permanent color to color my graying blonde hair which is chin length and fine. Half a tube works. Why waste product or put it down the sink or in the trash? It is not something you want to drink from a water supply. Plus, you save money. Just close the tube tightly. You will be mixing the products together well, anyway. If more color is in the bottom of the tube--how? it is not likely to be a striking difference, and you won't have stripes in your hair!

I used Demi in the shade Medium Golden Brown and it is almost black and looks terrible! What can I do to fix it?

Asked by: Demi1234
With these demi colors they will always be a bit darker then expected.  I usually wash it out a couple shampoos and then put something a little lighter over it.  Otherwise I just grin and bear it and let it fade off.

This is probably a dumb question, I’m a novice.  Can I use this after my permanent 6R for shine w/ developer? I use 20 on gray and 10 when I pull thru ends. Or, do I mix w/ permanent color?  If so, how much do I mix?

Asked by: KCdoc1959
Most importantly there is no need to mix permanent and demi color together. Demi color is for depositing color only. Depending on how much gray you have you can use it to cover minimal gray or use for gray blending depending on level of color desired. Can be used to refresh color with demi clear for longer lasting results

I really like this product. I use #10 developer 1-1 (5G and 5R) My issue is this: the roots fade faster than the rest of my hair... so my ends are much darker now. How can I stop depositing so much color on the ends? Any advice? (i'm 100% gray)

Asked by: Old Gray Joan
When coloring your roots only put the tint on your roots, not your whole head. Only "soap cap" the ends 3-4 times a year. This way the roots will always be darker than the ends and your hair will have a much more natural look. To soap cap: apply the not mixture to roots, wait 20 minutes. Mix remaining tint mixture (your 1:1 tint plus 10 vol) with shampoo to create the soap cap. Apply soap cap to the rest of your hair (not the roots). Wait 20 minutes then wash. This way you have the tint mixture on your roots and the soap cap on the rest of your hair to refresh your color on the ends, not re-tint it again.

I asked the lady what developer I should get with the Ion Color Brilliance Demi 9NG. She told me 20 but, now when I'm home and look at the directions it says to use 10 developer. Should I return it?

Asked by: Loribeauty
Depends on what your trying to do. If you want to deposit color only, then use 10volume developer. If you are trying to lighten roots a little and deposit color then 20volume. If your natural color at the root area I’d a blonde you might get gold or brassy tones with 20volume.

My natural color is very dark rich brown (think espresso brown) fades to dark brownish caramel color in sun. I have about 15% gray and my hair is virgin hair, no dye. What color should I get? I Don't want black hair or reddish hair! help me please.

Asked by: WantToMatchMyNaturalColor
I am not a colorist. You should ask a colorist, but from experience I'd say go with a demi-permanent shade like your real shade. My hair is dusty med brown but i dont use the regular browns. They can turn red on me. I use the ash colors or duller colors whenever possible or something that is not a rich brown because the rich browns have too many red tones for me. When they fade,they get redder.

I have medium brown hair with gray. I always pick a lighter color or it comes out way too dark. How do I pick a color- 3 shades lighter?. Medium brown often goes way too dark for me. I don't want to change the color, simply cover the gray,

Asked by: Becka104
I suggest using a blonde shade. The medium and dark blondes are quite brown.Your best bet is to start with an "N" shade, a neutral. A "G" would give you a nice warm color.

what is Demi color mean okay and is it a difference from any of the other ion permanent creme coloring

Asked by: SassyNicole
The Demi slowly fades and leaves no obvious grow out line. You may need to refresh every 3 to 4 weeks.The permanent has to grow out. Always chose 2 or even 3 shades lighter than you natural color with the demi. It's usually too dark if you match exactly.

For medium ash blonde, what level developer should I use? Do i need to bleach my hair if it's already a medium brown shade? (Not natural, previously dyed) looking to go a light ash brown colour.

Asked by: JanisB97
If dyed med Brown and you want to go lighter need a color remover....ION sells one's a packet....color will never lift color ....always remember.....the remover must be applied 15-45 min.....processed under a cap (wrap the hair with Saran wrap) then under dryer 15-30 min......more time more color removed.....will auto shut off after 45 min......wash up to 3 times.....( Shampoo three times....with clarifying shampoo or just dish soap......) Then heavy conditioning pack.....(wrap again) keep on for couple hairs.....will strip the color out.....b4 you dye use a neutral protein the color is even.....good luck

I'm wanting a medium burgundy color for my hair color. I used the color they have on the chart but on the gray hair it just turned it red! Should I dye it Brown first then use the burgundy color?

The Clear Shine is intended to add a gloss to the hair for a healthy, shiny look. In certain instances it may make the hair feel color treated but typically it makes the hair soft and silky.

How do you know if you should use a neutral or ash color? I am trying to get a base color back from a lot of hightligjting. My color is medium blonde.

Asked by: jackie126
I would also recommend a neutral shade; if you use an ash toned blonde you risk the possibility of getting too green a shade. I would only use an ash tone if you are trying to correct some red tones you don't like. A neutral tone will have both reddish and greenish tones to get a good multi-dimensional color that is not too warm or too cool.

Two questions: 1) when you reapply color do you just retouch at roots or carry it through to ends? I’ve been neglecting the ends and only touching up which leads to question 2)  what is the best way to correct darker roots and lighter ends-I have stripes!

Asked by: Kelly2124
Hi, you can also just touch up sections that are getting too light. I have long hair & by doing touch ups it keeps my hair from getting too dark overall. It sometimes creates natural looking color streaks in my hair.

I have virgin hair, brown and gray. I want to try the clear to see if I can add shine and control frizz. Would clear work for this and if so, what do I need to do?

Asked by: Jenuine1
Hi, when I first started going gray my hair looked really frizzy & dry. I tried every product out. I thought my hair was damaged but my hairdresser said no! It's the texture of the gray hair and that my hair was very healthy. So now I use a flat iron or curling iron or braid my hair to control my unruly gray hair. Comes out looking smooth and soft.
