Megatek Anyone?

Has anyone tried this on men's hair? I don't know if there would be a difference, but my daddy wants to grow his hair out (and he is getting thin) and dye it all black again (I'm hiding the men's dye he bought and see if I can get some Indigo or Henna), so I thought I'd give it a try.

He's going through a sort of mid life crisis, I think, mournful of the days of the full jheri curl. He told me once that he had a friend relax it and it went mid-back. This same relax job caused all his hair break off (said htat huge chunks that fell out) and the worse of it (the top of the crown and midway back) as been thin ever since.

I'm rambling, but it's my daddy, and I love talking about him, I'm such a daddy

You can order off of ebay a sample of this for $11 (incl. shipping) so he can give it a try. The guy sends it with a little bottle so you can distribute it with water on your scalp if you want to...he was really really nice. I'm not affiliated. The guy's name was Greg and the company is Green Earth Enterprises. He was super nice and followed up with me via email and responded really quick to my questions.

I'm not sure who else sells it but I was very attracted to the sample size. It's a pretty good size (got it yesterday). I'm going to start it tomorrow.

Good luck! And I think its so sweet to be a Daddy's girl

I emailed the company over the Mega-Tek ingredients list discrepancies a while ago. They sent me a couple of pdf's with the correct ingredients of all their products.

I'll post for the MegaTek since that was the product I asked about:

Mega-Tek Rebuilder

Deionized water
Stearalkonium chloride
Glyceral Stearate
Cetearyl Alcohol
PEG-40 Castor Oil
Cetrimonium Chloride
Hydrolyzed Keratin
Panthenol
Tocopheryl Acetate
DM DM Hydantoin
Methylparaben
Propylparaben
Tetrasodium EDTA
Fragrance

The only discrepency was on her list of the ovation.(and also this list) On my bottle,(over a year old) it has listed, the panthenol, and hydrolized keratin protein , on the list, before or (HU) than the cetrimonium chloride, that is the only differance , from Goobers list and my bottles. The company (EQyss) got the lists mixed. Bottom line, they performed identicle,smelled the same, just a way better price. You can only get Ovation on line, and they have a hairclub type website.I had read that the ingrediant list ,was the same, but thank you for pointing out Goobernut, it in fact is not. At any rate, once I started using. never experianced a shedding problem. I also read on the LHCF, that garlic pills, could negate ,that effect.Dont know if I believe, but I just happen to take garlic every day. Im stickin with it.

The reasoning I received from the company about the different labels was that bottles were mislabeled.

Apparently the bottles with the ingredients you all are talking about are the mislabeled ones.

My Mega-Tek bottles have the label I copied the list above from.

But anyway, if you are sceptical and don't want to use it, feel free to not bother. Everyone has free choice.

For me, I'll keep using it because I think it's as good for my hair and maybe better than most of the billions of products out there.

I've used it in hopes of it re-growing my hair and making it fuller as I've heard happen with others. No such luck here. It smells good and makes my hair feel strong, I still use it for protein. But that's that, no change in my hair.

I'm not sure if it made my hair grow any faster than normal since I'm not checking for length.
Hi. I just started using MT. But I measured my hair so I can check the progress. I have some bad damage and traction alopecia because I am dumb and did dumb things to my hair.

However if we keep this thread going maybe we can track everybody's progress???

In any case I would love to hear from anyone here if they have been using MT for a while.
a new little megatek comment. due to a new workout schedule,stopped using megatek as much.I massage into scalp, after a cowash, with a thick condish, like biolage on top. ,leave on, for rest of shower,around 10:00-15:00 min.I cut back to 1 x a week, instead of 2 or 3, hair definately, started getting shaggy, breaking off, was trying to go as long, as possable without trim.So it was overdue.Got a trim(small cleanup) upped my megatek. Its the strength, that is making my hair grow longer, but also feels thicker, less tangly.Certain types of protein in the past, have dried me out, and broken hair off .AO, GVB, I think to name one.Megatek does opposite. I dont use by itself, though.

Just used MT for the first time today. My bottle says it has the dimethicone, but I'm not worried.

I'm going for length and thickness. My hair is pretty short, so I'll be able to tell very quickly if it is growing faster or not.

Hair was pretty happy with it. It had been feeling very dry, but my hair seems to like protein, and a bottle of MT is way cheaper than a bottle of Ouidad DT.

27 MONTHS SINCE THE BUZZ CUT!


I have been using MegaTek for a month and my bald patches are filling in. I used it 3 times a week. Wash with regular shampoo 1/week and cowash 2/week. I used a moisturizing conditioner and leave-in. In a month I've gained about 1cm growth, but the exciting part is my thin areas are much better.
yay, liliput! could you tell me how you are using???Do you rub in and leave overnight?? ps I luv the snorter: And do you put conditioner over??

What I do is I wash my hair once a week with mane and tail shampoo and THEN apply the MT. I put some MT in an empty hair dye applicator and mix it with a bit of water to make it easier to apply, then put it on scalp and rub it in (briefly-I don't have a lot of time for this). Then wait from 5 min up to 2 hours (depends on the day) and then rinse out with water. Then I apply more HEHH or a bit of Vatika's coconut oil to hair only (not scalp) to seal in moisture.
I co-wash 2/week with HEHH as well as follow the same routine as above. So I end up applying MT 3/week.
I also take vitamins and garlic (good for shedding but I was taking garlic before for different reasons anyway).
BTW, my nails are hard as nails (what a bonus)
Hope this helps but each hair is different...

Only MegaTek and The Force can help my hair now!
Just piping in. I've been using MT for nearly a month, and it's working. Really working.

I've got thin patches on the sides and at the hairline. My hairline has completely filled in, and the thin patches on the sides are starting to thicken up and fill in as well. Having really short hair means you can really see scalp, so I was really desperate for something.

I'm using it daily as a conditioner after co-wash or shampoo 1x weekly. I use per directions, using a nickel size, distributing through hair and waiting until I finish my shower. Then I barely rinse it out, adding a pea-sized amount to the sides of my head, which I rub into the scalp.

urbanmommy, can you post your method? Everybody has a different way to use MT and maybe your way could help somebody else (like me, for instance )

update!megatek.........Using as leave in, now just on wet scalp, put other (leave, in on length,with a quick 1 squirt rinse, and gel, on top, new growth all over the place, on sides of temples, where I have the most thinning(and I like to wear hair back, for sports. Didnt dry hair,am upping my use to every other day or so. never had the sheddding prob.Love it.
mbeck... I notice you have long fine hair in your avatar. How do you successfully apply the MT to your scalp w/o getting it on the length?

Any special tips? Also, do you find it has any kind of buildup if you leave it on your scalp?

Ooh Interesting! I used this on my horse's tail years ago. Never thought about using it on me! It didn't really work that well though. My horse had a lot more luck with Shapely's M-T-G (Main Tail Groom) if you want to go with equine product lines That stuff smells like a burning campfire though.
