    If have never colored your hair and you want to change your current hair color or you have not colored in 3 months or longer follow these steps: Apply hair color mixture to dry, unwashed hair • Work gently through hair as you would a shampoo. Loosely pile hair on top of head • Process according to manufacturer’s directions. When processing time is complete, add a small amount of warm water to hair and work into lather • Rinse until the water runs clear.

     

    If you color your hair every 4-6 weeks with a shade of similar tone and level follow these steps: Make 1/4” partings throughout dry, unwashed hair • Apply mixture onto new growth area only, working from the front to the back of your head. Leave color on new growth area for 25 minutes. When processing time is complete, add a small amount of warm water to hair and work into lather • Rinse until the water runs clear.

     

    Other tips: Always perform a strand and patch test • It is often not necessary to refresh the ends of the hair on every permanent hair color touch-up application • For resistant gray, use 20 Volume ion Sensitive Scalp® Creme Developer and apply to gray area first • Apply a stain barrier cream around the hairline prior to application when using dark shades • Choose a lighter shade than desired if you are unsure of which shade to use or if you have very few gray hairs • Use an old towel to protect your clothing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Color That Works! This is the best color. I am naturally a dark blonde with warm undertones and this works so well with a 30 developer to get a very light blonde without bleaching. I’ve tried a couple other ion colors and they never turn out well. Now I’ve learned not to bother messing with a good thing! Highly recommend the HL-N to anyone looking for a light blonde without the bleach!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT ACCURATE COLOR I bought the 8G Color and IT TURNED MY PLATINUM BLONDE HAIR BROWN. I worked for MONTHS trying to get to the natural blonde that I wanted & I decided to go get this hair dye because I had heard such great things & I wanted to stray from box dye. Because of this HORRIBLE dye I now have to start over on going blonde. Will NEVER by again.

I know that you discontinued 6ab /6ag in the ion brand. What can I use in its place? I mix it with 5nn equal parts. 

Asked by: kratliff17
6AB was a Dark Ash Blonde and 6AG is an Ash Gold. We currently carry a 6A and a 6G both a dark blonde but different tones. If you are looking for a warmer tone use 6G If you are looking for an ash tone use the 6A.

I have quite a bit of grey at my temples. I use 2N with 20vol developer for an all over color. I love the color but my grey roots start showing out within about 2 weeks. What can I do to prevent that?

Asked by: Annaabelina
Either you are seeing the beginning of regrowth or the color that you are using is not sticking as well to your grays. You can try an NN shade if you think that the color is not staying as well on your grays Or if it's new growth you can look into temporary root coloring products until the next time you touch up your roots withe dye.

I have platinum blonde hair level 11 ...I want to go back with be reddish brown hair ...what should I do...

Asked by: Tball2020
If you want to dye your hair first determine how long you want the color to last. Your hair is very light in color so just a note if you decide to use a semi or temporary hair color it is likely to stain your hair. Permanent hair color has the best staying power for long lasting results. Next determine what level (how dark or light) you want your new color to be. Since you know you want a red brown base, a red-brown in this line will be between levels 3-5 so between a dark to medium brown about 6-9 levels darker than your current color. Once you have determined your color, all that's left is to dye your hair with your choice of hair color by following the instructions. If you choose a permanent or demi permanent hair color you will need to use developer for the color to deposit correctly.

Good Morning, everyone! I've done NOTHING to my hair in the last 4.5 yrs. I used to have it highlights with red/blondes or dyed Auburn Red. What's the best brand for a full coverage to dye my hair? What number should I use? My hair is VERY dark brown! Tha

Asked by: Momof2gurls80
Sounds like you are starting with fully dark brown hair. Are you looking to cover a lot of gray? Select a NN shade near your current color (3NN perhaps). If you want a different color, such as red or blonde, it will be more difficult with your dark hair. To go Auburn, select a red shade that you like in a medium tone (7 or 6) with a 30 volume developer. To go blonde, be prepared to bleach several times first.

id like to mix medium brown with another color to give me some lighter or shinny strands. i dont want the flat color of just medium brown. what would you recommend?

Asked by: susyquio
You cannot mix colors to get some parts to turn out lighter than others. You would have to dye the parts separately. However, selecting a golden color or a copper color and mixing a bit in will make your color more vibrant.

I have dark brown roots and goldfish high lights through out the bottom. I want to tone the whole thing like a rich honey color . How would I go about doing this the right way?

Asked by: Stefcol19
You would probably need to bleach it while isolating the highlights so they don't get overbleached, and then color it. If you are looking to go from dark brown to honey blonde, it could take more than one round of bleaching, and then you're have to assess what color you hair turned out so you color select the right color to tone it.

Just dyed hair 4 days ago..inadvertently I picked up purple instead of orchid. How long do I have to wait to re-dye it?

Asked by: Annie Dee
The colors you are referring to are the semipermants, correct? if so, dying your hair with these causes no damage, as it's just a stain on the surface of the hair. You can redye it whenever you want, but be aware that the current color will still be there and will mix with whatever you put over it. You can let it fade a bit and then recolor. Use dandruff shampoo to speed up the process. You don't need it to be completely gone, as you are staying in the same color family.

I just bought the ion in the color flamingo. I have a 30 vol developer at home, could I use that or no I need to have a 10 vol developer?

Asked by: Ceher2020
That depends, do you want your hair two or three shades lighter underneath (and possibly more yellow). If you are starting with your hair bleached to the base color you want, use 10 volume or risk damage. If your hair is light blonde, your 30 volume should be fine. If your hair is medium blonde or darker, you wont get true to swatch color with Flamingo regardless of what devloper you use. The higher the volume the developer, the more it lightens the underlying hair and causes damage.

I've always used liquid Ion, but this time I bought the cream. Do I use the entire tube, or just half of it?

What’s the difference between liquid hair color and cream hair color?

Asked by: TheresaL
Mainly the thickness of the formula. Liquid is runny and needs to be applied with a bottle. Cream is thick and is painted on with a brush from a bowl. Liquid is faster, cream is more controlled. I've noticed that liquid colors tends to be a bit more sheer with this brand.

Does the intense red blonde mean it's for blonde hair? Looking for a very bright red and dark red

Asked by: Rieriee5
That doesn't necessarily mean its for blonde hair only, thought it. will show more true to color on blonde hair. Putting blond in the title reflects where it falls on the spectrum of light to dark. The intense red serious is a bright, cool toned red (leaning toward a wine but not so purple as to be burgundy, for burgundy look at the RV shades). If you are blonde and looking for a color darker than your current color, I recommend grabbing the medium intense red (one shade darker than the intense red blonde). If your hair is brown get the intense red blonde. If you hair is dark brown, I would suggest looking into the loreal highcolor reds instead.

What is the difference between 5N and 5NN?

Asked by: Nativi66
The pigment load. Double Neutrals (NN's) have more pigment making them more effective at covering pure white or light gray hair. They shouldn't be used on normal or only partially gray hair because they will take too dark.

Asked by: Jan 4521
Don't use 30 V it will cause to much lift and probably a more orange tone. You need to move the color number higher. Example: If you are using 5N change to 6N .

Do i need a developer or can i just use water ? Really trying to avoid the developer

Asked by: Gisselle brizuela
If you are concerned about reactions to the developer, I always have an itchy head for weeks after other brands but this one I have no issues with. I use the 10 with jet black and darkest brown and I have VERY resistant gray and it covers extremely well. I recently started adding the "Sensitive Scalp Protector" but only because I saw it at the store and figured it couldn't hurt.

I normally use light brown natural drug store color. I want to switch to something better. I find creams easy to use. If I purchase the light brown with a 20 developer will that work? I have gray roots. Do I have to use a corrector first? So confused!

Asked by: Piper145
Yes that should work. You might have a slight line from drugstore color and roots, switching to a new one. But not likely. You shouldnt need to correct at all. Just do a good shampoo and strip any old color out that you can. I love Ions sensitive scalpformula. Truly is non does little damage, and doesnt make my scalp itch or hurt.

What is the best toner to buy with Ion permanent hair color products?

Asked by: Blueeyes60
I like the ion sentive scalp formula. Developer level depends on what color you want. 10 for little lift. All the way to 40, which is mega lift. 4 shades lighter. For blonde, for bright colors on dark hair, etc. Dark colors dont need a high level
