I like that this foams so that application is a breeze. I left it in for eight minutes in the shower to do it's work but I think I will try ten minutes next time. After rinsing, I apply my deep conditioner. My hair looked so much more shiny and stayed soft. I'm definitely getting more packs of this to keep on hand.

My curl pattern completely changed after a brief, but damaging, coloring phase a couple of years ago. The hair around my face became straight and fried. Since, I have stopped coloring my hair and only flat iron my hair 2-3 times a month. After growing most of my hair out and deep conditioning religiously every week, and trimming away the damaged hair, my curl pattern is not back to normal on the hair surrounding my face. I went to Sally's and grabbed a small of packet of this last week and tried it when I got home. The first time, I followed the directions on the packet but I did not condition afterward. I wasn't happy with the results, so I jumped online to see what I was missing. I was missing a deep conditioning treatment after, silly me. I tried it again tonight, after chopping another 4 inches off, and the hair around my face has a wave. I see a wave, people! Even a baby girl here and there. This product works. I bought a big bottle for $10.99 and I will be using it once a week. I let my hair air dry and it's super soft, shiny, and bouncy. Deep conditioning after using this reconstructor is key.

I have very long, thick, wavy hair. I bought this after bleaching out a few small peekaboo highlights under my layers. I left it on for a good 5 minutes after shampooing per the instructions, but this left my hair extremely dry each time. The bleached sections of my hair actually felt better BEFORE I used this product.

I actually like the brand ION and have found several gems from their lines. This is one of them. Although I did find the Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment to be effective, I did not enjoy the texture of the product itself nor how it hardened my hair to rock solid while applied. This is a decent alternative. Being completely honest - Aphogee does have hydrolyzed keratin higher in their ingredient list. So I leave this on much longer than instructed, to make up for the lesser protein amount. I like to keep it on my hair for about 2 hours. What I like about ION's formula is that it applies like a shampoo. You can lather it up to spread it through your hair easier. It's not terribly sticky, either. As for results, this gets the job done. My hair is left feeling stronger. I would advise you all to follow up with a deep conditioner. Because alike to many reconstructors, this is a bit drying. The price is a good value for the amount in a bottle. I get more applications out of it thanks to the lathering consistency than I do from Aphogee's. I will repurchase.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! A few weeks ago I had used a temporary hair dye and hated the results. I shampooed my hair lots of times to try to get the color out. Sure enough, that was a mistake. My hair became dry, frizzy, and I had to wear it in a bun for 2 weeks. It became knotted really fast and easily. The most awful condition my hair has ever been in, even when I had previously bleached it. I was desperate for a product that would allow me to wear my hair down and fix the mess I made. I went to Sally's to buy the 180 Repair Discovery Kit but when we asked the worker, she recommended this product. We took her word for it, and also purchased the 180Repair Kit. I washed my hair once with the shampoo and treatment, pairing it with the shampoo & conditioner of the 180Repair Kit, and finishing with L'oreal Damage Repair Deep Conditioning Hair Mask (which I've been using for some time now). ONE wash and these products did WONDERS to my hair!! It's back to being soft, smooth, shiny, and cooperative. It's no longer difficult to brush it out in the mornings & it looks even better than before it was damaged! I would recommend this product to anyone who has dry, coarse, or frizzy damaged hair that is in desperate need of a solution. This product is great, not overpriced, smells great, and works wonders! Thank you ion for this magical treatment!

This stuff is pure gold if you have VERY dry damaged hair. Let me start off by saying I'm a natural blonde. I have been dying my hair brown for the last 7 years because my blonde hair is more of a dirty blonde and it had multiple tones that I just don't like. I decided I wanted to go back to blonde for my college graduation pictures. So I decided I would do it at home and see how it goes. I bleached my hair twice one day because my hair was extremely healthy and deep conditioned in between. My hair felt dry and brittle even after deep conditioning so I ended up going to salon to ensure I didn't damage my hair further. While I was at the salon I was told to pick up a reconstructor . So I picked up this one. I didnt wash my hair for three days and than used this. The first time I left in for 15 minutes because I felt as of my hair needed it. It was irritating to my forehead. I washed it out. Deep Conditioned and my hair instantly felt better but not 100 percent. So after another 4 days of not washing my hair I did the process again and my hair is as good as new. Let me warn you though my hair did feel thicker instantly but the ends looked dryer and usual so I put some oils in it slept through the night and my ends look 100 percent now. So you need to let your hair dry before you judge this product. You also need to use some form of deep conditioner because this will dry you out.

I had been looking for something to bring my hair back to life after a horrible bleach job by a colorist who did not know how to do ombre. I was left with tons of breakage, incredibly dry ends and frizz galore. My hair has never been such a mess. I tried deep conditioners thinking upping my hair's moisture level would make a difference, but it didn't. I was browsing Sally's and thought I'd try one of the little one-use packets of this product. I put it on my towel-dried hair and left it in under a shower cap for about an hour. My hair was so soft afterwards. I could feel a difference from one use. I went back to Sally's and bought the full size bottle for $13. It is a HUGE bottle. I've use it once a week or so for about a month and a half and my hair has MUCH less breakage, holds styles much better, the frizz is gone and it's incredibly shiny. My hair looks healthy again. With continued use, I think this product (along with the occasional trim to get rid of the too-dead-to-fix ends) will bring my hair back to life. I love the packaging - it's a large pump bottle. A steal at $13. The smell is a cherry almond smell, which I really enjoy. In my experience, it doesn't linger on your hair afterwards, so if that's not your fave smell, I wouldn't worry too much. I definitely recommend this product.

If you bleach your hair often you need this product! It rebuilds and strengthens the hair. I use it three times a week.

I started using this product about 3 years ago, since I used to color treat and iron my hair a lot and it became a frizzy, brittle mess. I got the large pump bottle and used it weekly. As a reconstructor, it worked wonders on my hair but only after I learned two things about it: 1. This product is -not- conditioning. Using a deep conditioner after rinsing it off is a must. 2. Less is more. Using too much product leaves hair feeling oddly stiff.I now use it monthly, since I abandoned damaging hair treatments and heat tools over a year ago. :)

This is the best stuff ever!!!!! I have very thick medium length hair and I'm constantly dying my hair. I have used everything from Paul Mitchell to deep conditioners and nothing has worked! I washed my hair with the ion repairs shampoo (the red bottle) washed and applied the reconstructor. My hair feels soft and the ends of my hair are smooth and no longer look like a frayed tooth brush!!!! Also I left the constructor in for about 15 minutes. I cannot express how much I love this stuff! I went from fried hair that I nearly went and chopped 4 inches off. To smooth shiny healthy hair. Everyone's hair is different but I highly recommend. It is a protein treatment and I didn't need a conditioner after. And the smell is amazing!!!
