What is the ratio for ion hair color?

It is recommended to use equal parts ion color and ion developer. That means the ratio should be 1:1.

Some people will use it without a hair developer, it’s still fine, but the result might not be permanent as the main aim of this dye.

How long do I leave ion hair dye in my hair?

The time to let the ion hair dye sit in your hair can vary, depending on the volume and dyeing purpose. In case you are coating your hair with a new color, it should rest 20 minutes on your hair.

It can be 30 to 45 minutes if you use 30 to 40 volume developer mixed with your ion hair dye.

A semi-permanent hair dye can even be left overnight thanks to the safer components. You better wrap your hair carefully with a hair towel wrap to avoid the dye staining your pillow and clothes.  However, just stop when you feel your scalp starts irritating or itching.

What happens if I use hair color without a developer?

As already mentioned, you can use ion hair dye without a hair developer. However, it would be better to combine these two hair care products to have the best color.

Without a developer, the result won’t be as permanent as intended. Your hair might end up splotchy and uneven because the hair doesn’t absorb the dye’s pigment. But it might be acceptable when it comes to semi-permanent color.

Do I need to shampoo after using ion color?

If you have dyed your hair with semi-permanent color, you better keep it last longer on your hair and only rinse it with cool water after that.

The reason is semi-permanent hair dye only lasts for one to a couple of shampoos, so never wash your hair with shampoo right after coloring with a semi-permanent.

Things change with a permanent counterpart. You can rinse and shampoo your hair after dyeing with ion color.

It will help remove any excess color in your head, neck, or face in the dyeing process. Moreover, shampooing will even bring out a truer color of the outcome.
