Ion Crystal Clarifying Treatment

I lived in a town with extremely hard water for 4 1/2 years. I can tell you the day my hair changed for the worst. The house apartment I was living in had a water softener, but our landlord didn't keep up with it. The change was terrible.

I just moved back to the town next door, which has significantly lesser hard water. My hair by my scalp became super oily since my first wash here, and I've never had oily hair in my life!!

After a little research, I picked up this Ion Crystal Clarifying Treatment, not knowing if it would solve my problem or not. The minute it hit my hair, my hair felt super soft, like I was putting conditioner in it. Usually my hair tangles as I wash product out, but It felt like I had done the best deep conditioning treatment ever in life! I was super hopeful at this point. As I scrunched in my product, my hair clumped like it had never clumped before! Clean, unfrizzy clumps. Separated clumps. Defined clumps. No more oil! Also, my hair doesn't take as long to dry.

I freaking love my hair again!!! This stuff is amazing.

    How amazing! I'll ask my stylist friend if there's something similar available in here. I'm inclined to think that my never-ending frizz and inconsistent state has got something to do with the hard water we have here. I'm pretty sure the water is heavily chlorinated, the smell is strong enough for me to detect.

    I just picked up a couple of packets of the Ion crystal treatment..Do you use on clean or dirty hair? Also do you shampoo after the treatment?

    I believe it says on the package that you don't need shampoo when using this? I can't remember exactly, it's been so long. I think I did it by itself.

    I thought there were instructions on the package. If not, you could call the Sally's where you bought it from and they could probably tell you what to do.
