I received this product for free from influenster.
I do have ALOT of hair so by the time I applied it all over, some of my hair over-developed (my error - not product). And the individual packet was perfect for root touch up (about 3/4"-1" outgrowth). This is just so easy to use and apply (even on my own).
However it does have a STRONG smell but that's not unusual for a bleaching product. I plan to reuse this for all my own lightening processes. I did leave it on parts of my hair for 90 minutes (definitely not recommended) and had no negative reactions via scalp or hair. My hair is still strong and healthy - although extra hydrating conditioner is always recommended after bleach use!
I will post photos from both times I used (whole and root touch-ups)
Pros: quick acting, easy to mix/apply, personally no irritation to skin, fair cost at Sally Beauty (bucket for $14.99 and packet for $4.69 with beauty card)
Cons: it has a strong smell (don't recommend using in closed space). You may have to use a toner if hair is too brassy or golden.
