Most of the negative reviews I have read seem to be due to a misunderstanding of what they are getting as well as a lack of general knowledge as to how the coloring process affects your hair in general. If you dye your blonde hair darker, and then use this product,you most likely are not going to end up back you your pre dyed hair. It doesn't work like that.Dye that uses a developer (as most dyes do) actually lifts your hair to open the shaft for the molecules to penetrate and thus deposit color,, so it usually is not back to "normal", just whatever the result is from the process minus the pigment..so not your natural hair, and possibly not even something that looks like your natural hair. Don't expect to rinse it and have a beautiful color, as this usually isn't the case either..it is a color remover, it does not tint your hair to a more acceptable shade suited more to your tastes..that is what you do after this remover does it's job with additional dye. It is simply removes the color. Even with a ton of rinsing (which you HAVE to do), if you are trying to rid yourself of a dark base, it will darken slightly, as it is next to impossible to remove all color (no matter what product you use!) unless you bleach it out, which is a whole different process. As for the smell, well that is simply chemistry, it is a sulfur based, and sulfur is what actually deoxidizes the pigment, so yes, it smells bad, but is necessary, so honestly, I don't see it as a negative as opposed to a necessary evil .It does not linger much longer then 24 hours, usually. (those of us who have used perms in the past..it is no where near as strong as that smell, thank goodness!) It is watery, but I feel like knowing this ahead of time is winning the battle, as I really didn't have an issue applying it to my hair at all without dripping it everywhere. Lastly, use caution when re applying dye, and try for 1-2 shades lighter than your desired shade, as well as really keeping an eye on the development, as it takes significantly less time to develop then usual. A warmer color is generally recommended, as hair treated with oops tends to pull ash, or cool..so I would really recommend a strand test before applying more color to your whole head, just in case. This is a wonderful product, but one must really be realistic and have some working knowledge of how hair coloring and processing works to prevent disappointment.
This study guide is really well written. It is divided into easy to read sections for each part of the HESI exam. The math portion is explained in easy to follow instructions, and starts with easy math addition and subtraction to the more difficult algebra. It even gives plenty of examples in order to completely understand the problems. The science part reads really well, and is once again organized from easy to more difficult. The vocabulary section is very thorough. The English section is very comprehensive, and very simple to follow. I have struggled with English in school all my life and am finally able to grasp the concepts because of how well this book was written. The anatomy and physiology section is readily understandable.
I used this for the first time a day or two ago. I was happily surprised with how thick it was, since I've been trying out new conditioners and the last one (Mane N' Tail) dried the mess out of my hair.
