Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth trying!! It works !!. Not as good as olaplex but definitely better than using bleach alone and price is super affordable so that's a plus

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing like Olaplex There's not a single unique ingredient in this product. It's a different mixture of the same ingredients found in thousands of other hair products. It is a very good thing that this is priced so cheaply. What in it is supposed to repair bonds? Bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate is the ingredients that repairs bonds, and there's definitely none of it in this product. It annoys me that companies think they can fool me in order to make money off of somebody else's patented product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! I’ve been bleaching my own hair for the last 6 years. Unfortunately, over that time I made a few mistakes and my hair is less than healthy. I’ve been spending the last year or so trying to fix that. This is now my 4th time using this product and I can definitely say it makes a difference. My hair does not come out feeling horribly damaged and it’s much easier to brush after the first wash than when I don’t use this product. I’ve never used olaplex so I can’t compare the two but I can tell you it definitely helps in the bleaching process.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure what it’s purpose is. I rated this 1 star but not 100% sure what it’s actual purpose is. I added it like suggested, the dye however didn’t take to my hair AT ALL.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It’s meh I did not get a whole lot of breakage. I used this in a bleach bath and I noticed my already pretty light hair turned a darker gold color. My hair is pretty dry to begin with so it was good that it saved my hair from breaking but now I have to reprocess my hair becauseof the darkening in certain spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth buying! I bleached virgin dark brown hair with 2 rounds of 30 volume developer. I added this to each round and my hair does not feel fried. Absolutely worth buying for the great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I have used Olaplex in the past and this is *Extremely* comparable to it for a fraction of the cost. Definitely more than worth it. I paired it with step 2 in the series, and used ion bright white lightening cream, and ion sensitive scalp vol 20 developer for bleach. My hair felt as if virtually no damage was done to it. Will definitely be my go-to from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS SAVED THE INTEGRITY OF MY HAIR I used this about two weeks ago while bleaching all of my hair to as platinum as I could get it before toning. I saw videos of girls using it because they heard it was the "poor man's olaplex" and their hair still looked soft and shiny after they lightened it so I gave it a try. I am beyond thrilled with the results; it helped keep my hair healthy SO WELL, it feels almost the same as before I bleached. I have short hair, and got two boxes and mixed them both in my bleach/developer mixture as per instructions. Make sure you read the instructions beforehand, as it tells you to use a step up higher volume of developer with this. It is so conditioning that it keeps the bleach from lifting quite as much as it usually does, so since I was using 30 volume originally (and would normally never use 40v), I used 40v instead and it didn't destroy my hair at all and worked perfectly! I am so pleased with this product, especially for the price and will be using every time I touch up my roots. Thank you Ion, you're a life saver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Olaplex dupe Love this. It does seem to temporarily help during bleach I don't actually belives it cures the damage like olaplex. But Hey, I keep buying It's cheap, definitely helps during bleach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Its not Olaplex but dang near close. noticable difference every time I use it. I use the whole vial because I use 3-4 tubes of color because I have super thick, long hair. A ION!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Hair Breakage I’m asian and bleached my hair to light yellow, myself...I don’t have $$$ for the took several steps, (20 vol, about 4 times, I was very conservative) but each time I used the ION, and there was no hair breakage. Now I’m just touching up roots, and again, no breakage. After each wash, I check the drain catch, just to see how much hair I’m losing, and I’m happily surprised. I have to wash my hair everyday due to scalp issues and I thought going blonde (finding out one should just shampoo 2x a week ideally) was a big mistake, but this has saved my hair during bleaching and after. I’ve never used Olaplex, so I can’t compare...but this is good enough for me, especially the price and results!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful! Awful! Awful! I did not want to pay the price for olaplex. What a mistake. I’ve been using the same color for a few years to touch up my roots with no problem. Today I added this to my color and I now have orange roots! That’s not the worst part. This did not wash out of my hair. I had to wash with dish soap and Scrape it out with a comb for over an hour. Total disaster. It took what should’ve made a 1 hour job into a 2 hour mess! Never again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time buyer! So this is super cheap! And I added it my quick blue bleach and upped my dev up to a 30 vol! I noticed my hair was not nearly as dryer and it wasn’t all stiff and hard! My hair came out so soft and smooth! I did trim after using this and the bleach but I trim no matter what I do with my hair esp any chemicals!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Changes colour I found that it helped protect hair, it made bleaching easier on it. I have been using it for more then a year... one problem is that it changes the hair dye colour... so let's say I use so and so hair dye with 20 developer with this as the instructions say.. vs 10 developer without this... my hair will be darker and more true to the box colour vs using this product. I used medium copper brown with this product and my hair came out very orange/red (I used this same colour with this for months on end) I used the same colour without when I ran out and my hair was much darker but more true to medium copper brown.. vs more orange tones. I also noticed my colour didnt fade as fast. However it wasnt as shiny as when I used this. I did notice it did better with bleach but the bleach seemed like it acted a tad different with this product in. It did less damage, but it didn't quite work as well per say. So if you want more shine, and the risk of less damaged hair.. use it. If you dont want the product to change the colour or the risk of.. then dont. I'll still use it.. but only with certain colours and most likely with bleach.

How can I use it after bleaching, my hair is pretty damage ? And how about the no.2 booster?

Asked by: Monamee123
You can use it as a stand alone treatment. Go to Youtube. There are lots of tutorials for those who have used it after color. This is a dupe for OLAPLEX. I have only used it that way since I don't color my hair. I do relax my hair and used it afterwards. A hair bond rebuilder. It's not going to be a miracle fixer if your hair is really damaged. But it could help. You may also try the APHOGEE protein two step treatment. It's great for damaged breaking hair after a chemicals.

 If I bleach my roots then use toner the same day can I use this in both twice the same day?

Asked by: HaHayes_
You absolutely can, a normal service visit would include a toner after bleaching. The point of this product is to help aliviate some of the harsh chemical results that can happen when you normally dye/bleach your hair.

If I am using 2oz of wella color charm color & 4oz of ion sensitive scalp 30 volume developer how much of the step I booster should I use? Will it have an effect on my color comes out?

Asked by: Abbymiley
It will not affect color. However, if you are bleaching your hair, you will have to go up 1 volume in your developer (eg 20 volume to 30 volume; 30 volume to 40 volume).

I have natural dark brown hair I beached my hair blonde and ended up with orange blonde hair. I then used your red-gold corrector plus colored again no bleaching and still have lighter orange blonde hair. How can I get my hair blonde no orange?

Asked by: Laurie 246
Wella T18 will not work properly on orange hair. You must be a pale yellow for any of the light toners to work. Your hair turned orange because that is an underlying pigment of Brown. Look up the color wheel and hair color pigment charts. Each color has an underlying pigment as well as an opposite color that will neutralize unwanted tones. In order for toners to work you must have very little brass.
