How Black on Black works


The goal of Black On Black is to get rid of those ugly reddish over-tones.  We do not want to be dyeing a canines coat for dyes lie on the outside of the cuticle lens therefore dulling the coat in appearance and also rubbing off on your hands.  Instead we are drabbing the black with green pigments.  The reason you have reddish overtone on a black coated canine is that the blacker black hair is, the more red pigment is under the cuticle of the hair shaft.  When the outer lens is bleached out by the sun or other elements then the red pigment is exposed.  And, what drabs the color of red is green.   Chris Christensen Systems Black On Black's diminutive molecular structure is like Black On Black being a golf ball versus a basketball, the molecular structure of Chris Christensen Systems treatments are so tiny that they can go under the cuticle lens and clean and deposit pigment without the use of harsh chemicals.  We are neutralizing red through a combination of green pigments.  By depositing the green pigments under the lens we are restoring the beautiful black you once had.  And, also note that by depositing under the lens we are leaving a beautiful sheen, for the lens works like a piece of glass would, reflecting and intensifying the color under it. 

#1 Extraordinary cleansing ability and color deposit system in one application.

#1 Color pigment deposit system. Small molecular weight (tiny particles of color) that penetrates the top layer of the hair, which is the cuticle or hair lens surface to the cortex without the use of harsh chemicals.
#2 Neutralizes unwanted stains that cleansing does not remove, or deposits wanted color tones.
#3 Does not stain the outer layer of the hair surface, thus allowing passage of light through the translucent hair surface to amplify gloss and colors.

#1 A semi permanent color that will not rub off on hands or clothing or for that matter a white towel, and lasts up to 4 weeks.
#2 Acid balanced to close and tighten the hair cuticle lens, amplifying color tones and gloss.

Black On Black is for use on black canine coats to deep multi colored breeds such as mahoganies to dark brindles and dark chocolates.  Will not discolor mahogany and dark tan markings.  If using on a tri-colored coat apply White On White in the white areas first then go in with Black On Black in the black areas, if you accidentally spill Black On Black into the white areas do not be concerned since you already have the white areas suds up with White On White.



Hello, I wanted to express my love for your products, particularly the Black on Black shampoo and the Thick N Thicker Bodifier.  I have used your brushes for a few years, but recently purchased some of the shampoo and bodifier for my large black and tan Shiloh Shepherd, well it sure did the trick, he had a great weekend of showing, including a Reserve Best in Show!  Thanks Chris Christensen!!!

Hi, just a compliment on the products.  I had purchased the Black on Black System kit some time back, but just never got around to using it until the first of May.  I hadn't been showing my bitch since she finished her championship last November, but was bringing her out as a Special at the Tupelo, MS shows on Mother's Day weekend.  First 2 times in the ring: BOB.  Two weeks later, Jackson, TN.  She was the only entry in our breed, but the attached photos show the Group result.  Owner handled, and all grooming done by Chris Christensen products!  Thank you!!!!!  Julie - Oban Scottish Terriers

I have to tell you, not like you do not hear it all the time, how impressed I am with your products.  I ordered the White on White last month and was so impressed that I ordered the Ice on Ice and Black on Black.  I have two Australian Shepherds and the difference in just one bath had impressed me so much I honestly think I will order larger sizes to use on my pet grooms.  My black-tri bitch was so sun bleached, even with the use of sunscreen, your black on black took care of that with one bath.  I have also started using the Ice on Ice during my daily routine to prevent the dirt staining and the sun bleaching.  Thank you for such  wonderful products.  Keep up the great work!!!  Melanie D.

Your Black On Black system has my black Pugs coats in the best shape ever.  Thanks!  Joy Cupp

I just had to tell you that I have always bought your Black On Black shampoo.  But I bought your Thick N Thicker Volumizing Protein for the first time for my little GSD girl because she has no hair!  Well, not only did this product make her look thick and full but she held a groom for 4 days!!!  I was so impressed that I just bought a gallon!  Well, since I loved the Thick N Thicker Protein I also tried your Clean Start and your White on White shampoo because I got a Great Pyrenees sent to me to show.  Well, this dog is 1 1/2 and she has been kept in the back yard to run and play in the MUD!  This supposed to be a white dog was brown!  And I do mean BROWN!  Well, anyways to make a long story short I just groomed her in the Clean Start then the White on White and she is WHITE!!!!  I love it so, so now I bought a gallon of both!  I now will only use the CCS Shampoos not only on my own dogs but my clients' as well.   Jennifer Smith - Callisto German Shepherd Dogs, Valle D' Aspe Great Pyrenees 

I ordered three products from you a few months ago (Black on Black, After Bath, and Ice on Ice).  And I have to say I'm in love!  We have issues with my two black-and-tan dogs turning red since we're outside so much.  I bathe them with the system once a month and cannot even describe how thrilled I am with the results.  Everyone at the dog park, in the woods, and in my neighborhood raves about how shiny and black my two pups look, and how gorgeous their coats are.  The Ice on Ice worked so well on my cocker (tons of conditioning, but still tons of volume) that I tried it on my hair.  Now it's an essential part of my morning routine.  No more fly-aways but no less volume.  Thanks for such a great product.  I've been recommending it for a while to all my friends on dogster ( and to all my groomer friends in the real world.  I know several of them have tried it and are thrilled too!  You've definitely got repeat customers with us! Sincerely, Sara Hoffee
