Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed The end result after 40 minutes on the white bleached hair is pretty bad. there's a very light pigmentation. My hair is about 4-5 inches above the shoulders, it's not long, but even with that length 1 bottle of dye was barely enough. I had to use each drop. I donot recommend anyone to buy the shade Dusty Violet. The color I ended up with has barely any resemblance to the sample, which was at the store's display

I used the Ion dusty violet, but my hair turned more brown than violet. I have naturally grey hair that I want to enhance. Do I dare try another Ion product? I REALLY want silver hair.

Asked by: jopitcher1
If you'd consider trying the semi-permanent, Ion has a lovely shade called Titanium. I use it on my naturally grey hair to make the color a little more steely & silvery and get lots of compliments. No developer needed, easy to use.

When I was younger my natural hair color was a reddish brown. Now at 55 my roots are a medium gray with a few silver highlights. Several months ago I got heavy red/blonde highlights. I would really like to match my roots. How can I do that?

Asked by: Angela64
You need to add hi-lights to your grow out that match your ends. It’s extremely difficult to to hi-light grow out on your own head & end up w a satisfactory result. If your goal is to lengthen the time between salon visits by using at home color your best bet is to choose ONE color that you or a friend can apply in between salon visits. If you’re loving your heavy red/blonde hi-lights, I’m afraid, it’s best left to the professionals.

Can I mix half light charcoal with medium charcoal? Both are Ion permanent colors.

Asked by: Raven054
You absolutely may! With my experiences, as long as you stay in the same brand. (keep in mind, I would never mix a permanent with anything other than another permanent. So dont mix a permanent with a semi or semi permanent.) Any of ions other colors, as long as permanent, you would be fine to mix with each other.

Hi! I bought the dusty violet in this line. I’m in the process of bleaching my hair to a very light blonde. I’m just wondering if anyone else has used this color, if so, what are the results. I really don’t want to end up w/ ugly brown. Thank you! 

Asked by: HeatherFeather
Any time you put a silver that light over bleached hair, you would be smart to make sure to tone it out. Greys contain a lot of green, so if you're hair ends up with yellow tinges, you will end up with a muddy look every time.. with any grey. I use the dusty violet mixed with rose from this brand and I had to get my hair white for their pastel looking colors to cling and look like the true swatch. Once you achieve white, you will be blown away with the quality of these metallics.

Can it put this over my nearly black hair as just a little hair tint

Asked by: unknownasker
Im not a hair stylist, i would assume so , my hair is short so i use a small amount mixed with light brown to achieve the right shade, depending on the amount of hair your dying. I would just test using smaller amounts to start with, to let some of your natural color come threw , personal i think when hair has no multi-shade color it tends to look more unnatural.  J.

So I have recently dyed my hair smokey silver after being bleached the bleach was that yellow orange color but the color still took as a charcoal grey & used 2 boxes NOW, i just bought silver pearl & wanted to know if it would have the silver purple tint 

Asked by: lilhilt0704
I bought this color for my husband and you only get the silver with purple tint if you strip your hair a little past straw yellow. If it's anything at straw yellow or darker, it won't stick.

my hair is brown but is going permanently grey and I want to make it all totally grey. What do you advise to use?

Asked by: KristiV1973
a couple of the grey colors in the Ion Color Brilliance Permanent collection, 7VA Chrome, and 6C-HM Light Charcoal. I have used them to mix with my dark ash blond hair color (a different brand) to give a more natural grey-brown tone (not the warm tones), with good, but varying results. The Chrome color (on my hair) is fairly light and silvery, while the Light Charcoal is rather dark, not "light". (There is a darker Ion Charcoal shade available, but I imagine it is really dark.) So I may try to mix the two greys I've used to try to get a medium grey color, but still blend it with an ash blond color. In your hair, do you want the grey to be darker or lighter than your original brown? I'm not a hair color expert, but I think if the grey you want is darker than the brown, you can use the grey color directly on top of the brown, and maybe the Light Charcoal color would be good to use. I do think the brown hair colored with the grey would not turn out pure grey at first, though, but you can continue to recolor with the grey and it would gradually get more grey, I assume. But if the grey you want is lighter than your brown, in order to go lighter you may have to first strip (bleach) your original hair color and then use the grey shade you want (the Chrome or Light Charcoal or a mix of the two). You may just have to experiment to see how it comes out. I was a little jittery at first with mixing colors and experimenting, but have not had any problems doing so. I was also told, if you mix hair color brands, to be sure they both use the same developer volume level. Hope this helps.

I used Ion medium gray hair color this time instead of the light charcoal gray hair color and it came out pretty dark with a hint of gray in the light.....I do love these colors but was wondering if it will lighten up some after few washes....

Asked by: Raven054
It's permanent color, but like all color it will fade with washing. Particularly if you use a shampoo that doesn't protect your color correctly. For the most fade, was often, in hot, lather well and repeat until the water runs clear. ;-)

Do I need to use a toner after I bleach my hair or does this act as a toner as well? I'm trying to go silver

Asked by: Elaina73
Would help to know which "silver" you are trying to use, would also help to know how light your hair is post bleach. You should tone it out but your hair will need to be icey blonde before applying any of the silvers from this brand. If not you will experience green/dirty blonde spots. The only color I would recommend if you lifted light enough and preferred not to tone your hair, would be Pewter. Mind you that's not silver, that's a medium Grey. Your hair MUST be white prior to applying any brands silver, if not you will end up with a green hue since generally you will experience yellowy brassy colors... Adding an ashy color to a yellow color will result in a green. Purples cancel out yellow, greens cancel out red. I highly recommend getting your hair professionally colored if you're trying to achieve silver, silver is very difficult.

When to use this product What is the results

Asked by: Pilar palmatier
I used the product to mix half and half with my regular hair color to give my hair an overall cooler color while still mostly the natural color I use. It was a subtle change but did look cooler. This seems to be a god way to overcome the brassy tones of my regular purchased hair color (although it was an ash color to begin with).

how light does your hair need to be to have these colors show

Asked by: megmeg32
Ideally platinum blonde. As with most hair color products. You will still get a decent looking result starting from dark blonde, given that these colors are fairly neutral. And these can also balance out orange tints from bleaching. But to get the expected results, start from platinum. Also, the color will come out darker immediately and will fade to expected after about 4 showers.
