  • Brilliantly intense hair color No ammonia or peroxide Formulated in Italy Ready to use
    ion Color Brilliance™ Semi-Permanent Brights are hi-fashion hair color shades designed to give vivid, boldly intense results. In 20 to 40 minutes ion Color Brilliance™ Brights deposits color on pre-bleached natural or color treated hair. ion Color Brilliance™ Brights can be applied to pre-lightened hair and natural or colored hair.
  • ion Color Brilliance Semi-Permanent Brights Hair Color can be applied two different ways.

     

    1. For the most vibrant result apply to pre-lightened hair. Pre-lighten with Ion Color Brilliance Ammonia Free Powder Lightener (not included) to the desired level of lift. It is important to note that the degree of lift achieved with pre-lightening will directly affect the vibrancy and intensity of the final result. Underlying exposed contributing pigment must be taken into consideration. If the hair is orange or a dark yellow this will contribute to the final color.

     

    To achieve a boldly intense brights color, pre-lighten to the level indicated in the table below for each specific color. After pre-lightening, shampoo with ion Color Defense Shampoo. Dry the hair. Apply chosen brights shade directly on dry hair and process for 20 to 40 minutes depending on the level of color intensity desired. Strand test every 5-10 minutes. Heat is not necessary for processing if the hair has been pre-lightened. After processing, thoroughly rinse and apply ion® Color Brilliance After Color Treatment to close the cuticle and lock the color deep inside the hair.

     

    2. Color shine overlays on natural or color treated hair. Apply brights directly onto natural or color treated dry hair and process for 20 to 40 minutes. For more intense vibrant results, cover the hair with a processing cap and process with heat. Strand test every 5-10 minutes.

     

    After processing is completed, thoroughly rinse and apply ion Color Brilliance After Color Treatment to close the cuticle and lock color deep inside the hair.

  • ion Color Brilliance Semi-Permanent Brights Hair Color are non-oxidative dyes that can be extremely long lasting and may become permanent. Apply to dry, pre-lighten hair.

     

    Should removal be necessary from hair, it is important to know that lightener may not completely remove Brights from hair. ion Color Corrector is not recommended for removal of Brights. It is designed for permanent and Demi-Permanent color removal.

     

     

    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 4 out of 5 by from Shark Blue....love the color I have long hair and used two tubes of shark blue. Did not color evenly but still looked nice. My hair is light blond and only left it on for 25 mins because I didn't know how dark it would be or if I would like it. I am now going to do it again since after 3 weeks it is washing out. This time I will leave the full 40 mins. Not everyone will like it or be happy with it, but that is the nature of the game. I will keep using it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use cool water! That's the trick for the colors to stay longer. I love the Ion brand and often use these, the permanent, and the naturals. I am a substitute teacher and all the kids and other teachers love it! Blues, pinks, and darker purples last longer, as to the salmon, and reds fade super fast and will need reapplication for bold colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pigment I dyed my hair into fucsia one year ago but my experience was so good. I like the pigment, the trick is: more time = more pigment.

how often can you use the toner? i used titanium but don't want the blue... thinking I'd try slate next but it's just been about a week and a half. it seems to have mostly faded from the middle part of my hair (chin length)

Do you mix this with toner? It says ready to use on it but the clerk sent me home with tube of lavender and a bottle of 20 lift toner. My hair is natural color which is pure white.

Asked by: Confusedatbest
no, you do not add developer to semi permanent hair color. they are direct dyes so they will color the hair without any ammonia or peroxide. even if you did want to use developer, 20 volume would be too strong. you would use 10 volume if your hair is naturally white (but only with demi and permanent hair color)

should medium brown hair be bleached before using the bright sky blue

Asked by: mistylou
Yes. For bright fashion colors, your hair needs to be bleached and tonned until it is as close to white as you can get. If you aren't experienced with bleaching, I recommend going to a pro.

I dyed my hair "deep purple" with Raw semi permanent hair dye, it looks blue now. I want to dye over it with purple, would it change the color to purple, putting on top of the blueish I have right now?

Asked by: Rain0603
Pink will make it purple! I’ve been using overtone conditioner to keep my hair pink and I use a blue one to one it cooler toned. If I use to much blue it becomes purple so I think the reverse should work. I would use as vibrant a pink you can find if it is really dark blue

Help!!! So I bleached my hair, it came out a light sand blonde after I toned it (orangey before)didn't get as ashy or light as wanted but it won't budge. I mixed titanium and azure, hoping for a grey blue, but came seafoam/teal!! How do I fix it?!

Asked by: Hwhite26
We do recommend brights be applied to pre-lightened, untoned hair. The toner may have canceled out some of the warm tones your desired shades thrive on. For removal and other tips give us a call at 800-859-3112!

How do I tone down fuchsia?

Asked by: katie1968
My experience with it is that it tones itself down after 2-4 hair washes. If you really want it toned down, wash with hot water and shampoo vigorously. You might also try mixing the color with some hair conditioner before applying - that might tone it down, but it might also make the color less consistent.

Do I have to shampoo beforehand for color to take? I just used one color, rinsed, used conditioner and blow dried but Im not fully satisfied with the color and want to put another color over it...can I do right away? Did anyone use it without shampooing?

Asked by: Hwhite26
No I never wash my hair before I put any type of color in it by rinsing it out and putting the conditioner and stuff in it that comes with the kit usually takes care of it but I only wash my hair once a week to keep the color for at least three weeks because if I washed every day it would be gone or fade horribly. I have found a permanent bright colors believe it or not and right now I am wearing a steel purple type color that I just love it’s not washing out or fading and it’s been three weeks in fact my roots are starting to show my gray roots because I am older so now all I have to do is roots better product

I use a tube in an 8oz tub mixed with plain hair conditioner. I then use it every time I shampoo and it keeps my color going!  I tried Overtone and it stunk so badly. This stuff is great. I have over 75% grey and it works fine.

Any one have problems with the dyes not taking? I bought pink and lavender and nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Asked by: RM1467BS
Ion pastels only work on a base no darker than platinum. Freshly bleached and toned (if your hair isn't toned, the colors will pull yellow tones, especially the Rose, even if you can't see significant yellow tones in your base), then shampooed with a clarifying shampoo is best. If there's any trace of conditioner or oils on your hair, it will stop the semi-perm from taking evenly, or at all. Mix Ion with a bit of cheap, silicone-free conditioner to get it to spread easier and/or with a bit of a thinner semi-perm dye like Manic Panic in a similar color. Use a tint-brush for even coverage, fully saturate the hair (this will probably take more than 1 tube of Ion).

How many weeks does it take for this color to get faded/go away ?

Asked by: Isabella56
Pastels/greys: 1-3 washes and you'll be close enough to normal to be able to color right over (note: don't put pastels over a base darker than platinum, they won't take right and will pull a lot of yellow tones). Reds/purples: 4-8 washes but they will leave a stain. Red ends slightly orangish and purple will leave a green tint if you put it over a base darker than very pale yellow. Blues: Ion blues are notorious for never completely washing out. You can force-fade them for months and you'll still have a blue tint. Even Shark Blue (a blue-toned grey, do not trust the box color) will fade to a powder blue over a platinum base and then stop fading. Don't use Ion blues unless you really mean it.

Can you leave it in overnight with out it hurting your hair.

Asked by: Lexieconley
Yes you can! I always leave my dye in overnight, to make it last longer. I usually leave it in for about 8 hours and never had any problems. It makes my hair really soft and smooth. Just mix it with some conditioner or another dye product that's more liquid because Ion is more of a thick product and is hard to spread by itself.

Which of the blue dyes (sky, aqua, shark, azure) will fade into a lighter blue? I don’t like when the blue dyes fade into a green/turquoise, so I need a dye that fades into a lighter blue and then back to the original bleached color. 

Asked by: AlexKrit7
All of those will fade to a lighter blue: they're all blue shades. If your hair has yellow tones in it before you dye or if you wash your hair with hard water, that's when you'd start seeing green as the color fades (previous reviewer Noel8085 doesn't understand color theory: light blue color + yellow tones = green hair, the dyes don't have a green base). But! Ion is bad choice for a blue dye you'll want to fade out completely. Ion blues don't do that, it's kind of an ordeal getting the color faded/removed, you'll probably have to dye over it with something darker when you're sick of it. Manic Panic Shocking Blue fades from blue to purple to pink to gone, that's a decent blue for a graceful fade if you don't mind purple/pink along the way. (I'm assuming you're going to lighten your hair before dyeing. You'll need a pale yellow base at the darkest for blue to not look green as it fades.)

I have like a lighter dirty blonde hair. I was thinking about dying it with these ion dyes. I have never dyed my hair like this. How long will it take for my hair to go back to normal and will it be the same color as before ? 

Asked by: Tabby2002
It all depends on how much you wash your hair, if you wash a lot and use warm-hot water it'll last (in my hair) a monthish. If you use cold water and wash like once a week it'll last longer. When you dye your hair it'll have a tint to it even after it fades, so you'll have to strip the color or cut it off if you want a completely natural color

Can you use developer w/ this, or do you only use it alone?

Asked by: Carina101
No it's a semi permanent stain dye. There is no need for peroxide. But I suggest using white conditioner to lighten the color even a little bit, it makes the color your using more rich and gives you a better idea of what your getting. And any extra moisture is great.

Stay away from chlorine. But to avoid tangling, and over washing after you go swimming in the ocean add leave in conditioner to your hair. Hair color is a commitment and requires some extra work and some sacrifice.

I bought Salmon, mint &aqua all to do in my hair at different times, I'm not sure if there is a color I could start with & be able to just dye the next color in once it fades out or if I will have to just bleach or color oops my hair before dying it again

Asked by: Babygirl1997
You could definitely get away with mint first and dye the aqua over it, but you will have to bleach the blue out before you try salmon, otherwise it’ll turn greenish. Same thing if you start with salmon first. :)

I have really really dark brown hair and I want to try and do the blue but I doubt it will show up in my hair but I font want to bleach my hair for the risk of damaging it. Would the color still show up or just leave me disappointed?

Asked by: Lovelylocks334
You can always add developer to this and it will help make it stick more. If you have died your hair before you can also try a color remover, although I wouldn't do it, i tried it once and although it did remove a lot of my previous dies it smelled horrible and left my hair really gross. I do a mixture of head and shoulders with mashed up vitamin c tablets and put it on my hair, leave it on for about 30 minutes to an hour depending how much you want to leave it on for. The more vitamin c tablets you use the lighter it will go, now this will only lighten your hair, not get rid of the color, it will also leave it very hard and dried out so i would do a hair mask afterwards and wait a day or two before you dye it. Third option that I suggest is try Arctic fox hair color, they also sell it at sally's. It's a bit pricier but its vegan, it has no harsh chemicals and it smells like berries. I've been using that one for a while, it doesn't damage my hair as much. However I do add developer to that too so i can make the dye last longer, since it's a bit pricier, and do make it stick better to my hair. There are alternatives to bleaching your hair, I've never bleached mine and I've been dying my hair since I was 16, you just have to be patient and take steps, you're not going to achieve the color you want on the first or second try, maybe not even the third. You also have to remember that every time you dye your hair it will be a bit tougher to achieve the color you want after even if you're dyeing it the same color because your hair already has dye on it. That's why you should try to lighten it, get rid of some color or cut it, because the growing hair at the top of your head will grab the dye better since it's virgin hair. That's why roots always look brighter than the end of the hair. I know that's ALOT of information lol, but I have had a lot of experience dyeing my hair over the years, I'm not a professional so you should do whatever you think is best for your hair.
