Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy, glossy and long lasting I LOVE this product! I have 50%grey hair and medium brown. I use this with a 50%ratio of ion sealer with hair color. Put lotion on skin so no staining, coat my hair with gloves on, cover in a plastic head cover, wrap with towel and 45 minutes later...OMG!!! My gray is blue and my brown hair is blue black. It is supper super glossy and soft. No harsh peroxide, no ammonia, just product and conditioner. It lasts for 6-8 weeks before a light touchup. Otherwise it stays until my hair grows out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ion didnt work well on my hair, the brown looked red in sunlight and after a few days it started fading to gray and then to a pink platinum look, but then again my hair was bleached blonde with my lower part of the head blue

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the Price, Decent I didn’t follow the instructions on the box and just did what I normally do with semi-permanent dyes and it went okay. Runs out of your hair like crazy and stains towels and even clothing if you don’t dry your hair properly (although it does come out in the washing machine thankfully). I found that it does better if you don’t use hot water on your hair in the shower, or at least rinse out everything in lukewarm. The color was exactly what you think it’d be, I got midnight blue black and it matched my hair which I had dyed with Clairol’s deepest blue black a couple months before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this semi-permanent color This works similarly to the ION Brights Semi-permanent color. Please see my review and picture on that product since I used it second and only have an image with that color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stop asking me for reviews! Needs developer. Others said you didn't, but it didn't appear to make hair look healthy or shiny.

If I leave Medium Warm Brown on for a shorter time (I did 17 minutes for the first time) will be color be lighter?

Asked by: Hair Experimenter
Somewhat, but not a whole lot. The color is the same, just doesn't last quite as long, or it takes less time to get to a muted (less new) color.

Semi Permanent Hair Color- black. Is this product free PPD? Need developer? Thanks in advance.

Asked by: Anonymous
You will not need to mix the product with anything, it is a ready to use product. For best results thoroughly apply product on washed towel dried hair& wear a shower cap or a plastic bag to maintain the product & make sure it doesn't dry out. When rinsing use room temp water or below do not rince with hot or warm water you will be stripping out the color. Also get the ION color sealer packets & once you rince the color out towel dry again & put the color sealer on by sections ao you get every strand & make sure to comb it through to distribute the product. For this i personally like to leave the sealer in throughout the night & rince it out till the next day so it really locks in the color. After this make sure you don't wash your hair for st least 3 days

I'm not sure about on blonde hair, but I find the brown colors to be rather dull, not shiny at all.

I have dark brown virgin hair and wanting to try the black color. Would it have enough pigment, or do anything at all to my hair?

Asked by: elly bay
I have used the black on my bleached blond hair and it worked just fine. So I think it will work for you.

Hi there! Does the Ion Color Brilliance Semi-Permanent in Clear actually deposit color, or just add shine?

Asked by: OhSuzeeQ
Actually it deposits the shine in much the same as it deposits color minus the color. It is not going help deposit color like a developer(peroxide). However I used to use it like a sealer after I frosted or colored my hair like the next day to help the color last longer or brighten my foster hair. I hope that helps some.

When opening a brand new tube, should it be sealed at all, other than the twist off cap? I'm trying to determine if I received an opened product or if they are all like this.

Asked by: KLDinDET
If the tube hasnt been peirced then the product should be fine to use.
