How Can I Use 10-Minute Hair Color?

Do you get tired of waiting for your hair color to process when touching up your roots at home? If so, then you may want to check out our line of ion™ Color Brilliance™ Permanent Crème 10-minute hair color! These are available in a number of popular shades and can process in as little as 10 minutes, making this a great option for busy people on-the-go who want to achieve beautiful hair in the convenience of their own homes.

Why 10-Minute Hair Color?

Aside from the quick processing time, there are many benefits of using the Permanent Crème 10-minute hair color. For starters, each crème comes with a pH normalizing post-color shampoo, which is formulated to neutralize the oxidation process and eliminate color residue. This results in increased shine and greater longevity of your new color. It’s also great for covering and blending graying hair, making it a popular choice among men.

Best Uses

This innovative 10-minute hair color is ideal for those who are looking to touch-up their roots in between hair coloring treatments. It is also a great option for those with shorter hair. However, if you are looking for an all-over color, then you should check out our other products, including our semi, demi, and permanent hair coloring products that are designed for total coverage and not just touch-ups.

If you decide to give 10-minute color a try, there are also some tips worth keeping in mind to ensure the best results. For instance, it’s always a good idea to begin with a pre-color treatment, which will help you achieve even color. Furthermore, take time to get to know the different developer options and how to choose the right developer for your needs. For example, a 20-volume developer may be ideal for those who are darkening their hair, whereas a 30- or 40-volume is ideal for lightening up to several shades. Regardless of the developer level you end up choosing, be sure to mix the correct ratio into your color-mixing bowl by following the included directions.

After applying color to your hair and allowing it to process for 10 full minutes, rinse it out thoroughly until the water runs clear. Then, follow up with the pH Normalizing Post-Color Shampoo for two minutes for the best results. It is also recommended that you use the ion™ Color Brilliance™ After-Color Treatment after you shampoo your hair to seal the color and prevent fading.

Aftercare Tips

The 10-minute color is a permanent formula, so it should last through many washes without noticeable fading. Still, there are steps you can take to keep your color looking as vibrant as possible. One of the best things you can do is to avoid shampooing your hair every day–doing so can strip your hair of its natural oils and make color more prone to fading and damage. For healthier hair and better color results, consider washing every other day or even less frequently, depending on how much oil your hair naturally produces. You can always use a dry shampoo in between regular washes to keep your hair looking and feeling fresh.

In addition to cutting back on shampooing your hair, it is also recommended that you wash and rinse your hair with cool water as opposed to hot water. Otherwise, hot or warm water can cause the hair follicle to open, allowing color to wash away more quickly. Cool water will keep the cuticle sealed and will preserve your color for longer.

10-minute hair color by ion™ Color Brilliance™ makes it easy to touch-up roots or color short hair, regardless of your busy schedule! With these simple tips in mind, you can achieve successful and vibrant color in a matter of minutes. Now, which 10-minute color will you try?
