I had my doubts at first but this product is amazing!!!!!!
I bought this product for my hair use. I do not have bald spots or thinning areas.I bought the product to see if it actually does grow the hair. I received the product on Jan 15th and I used the product the same day. I wanted to wait until I used the product for at least a month before reviewing it. Well here it is April 16th and I am finally reviewing it. To track growth I also took pictures of my hair before using the product and after. I have tried everything under the sun and can pretty much tell you about any product whether it works or not and how to stop some of the side effects you may experience. Megatek does work!!!! I have read all of the reviews good and bad and have seen where some people went wrong using the product. I am going to tell you how I used it and I am also going to tell you some of the things you can do to prevent or stop problems from using this product.
Some of things I have seen people write negative about the product are it leaves their hair sticky,experience shedding, headaches, and it just didnt grow the hair out. First off we have to remember this product is for animals so you would not use it how it would be used on an animal you have to adjust it to your needs. Your hair is sticky because you have to rinse the product out I know the bottle states you can leave it in but you need to rinse the product out and follow up with a moisturizing conditioner. Shedding yes it will cause shedding its a protein product combat shedding with garlic. Whether its garlic pills, powder or Alter Ego garlic conditioner the garlic should stop the shedding. Headaches can come from the product being too potent for you remember it is for animals. To solve this problem dilute the product if you are using it on your scalp. Dilute with what? A carrier oil. i.e. castor, olive,coconut oils. My hair isnt growing. Give the product time hair grows a half an inch a month I saw results 2 weeks after using the product. No my hair didnt magically grow down my back but I experienced new growth quicker look at the small things thicker hair or new growth in week 3 after perm when you normally dont get new growth until week 5. That means its working. I would estimate with proper use in 4 months you will see a tremendous change.
How I used the product to achieve maxium results... I followed a regimen which I did every week. Every friday I washed my hair then I applied Megatek for 15 minutes. I applied it to my scalp and hair and massaged my scalp for 2 minutes and then place a plastic cap on for 15 min. Washed out and then followed up with the Alter Ego Garlic Conditioner(to combat shedding) for 20 mins with plastic cap. Then rinsed that out and did a moisturizing deep condition for 45 mins- 1hr with plastic cap. Final rinse with cold water then blot hair dry and I added a moisturizing leave in conditioner and I applied my oil mixture to my scalp.
My oil mixture is in a color applicator bottle in it is jamaician black castor oil, 10 drops of peppermint oil, 10 drops of rosemary oil and megatek. I only apply this to my scalp. Also to retain length everyday I apply moisturizer to my ends and seal with oil. This is called moisturizing and sealing. My choice of moisturizers are Wave Noveau, Olive Oil Mositurzing lotion and Silken Child. My choice of oil are castor coconut and olive. Basically retaining length would be seeing your hair get longer. You know your hair is growing because if it wasnt, there wouldnt be a need to relax new growth. But when you finish washing out the relaxer and comb your hair out all happy cause them edges laying your hair is the same length. :-/ you didnt retain length your scalp produces natural oils so of course that part will grow but your ends are the oldest part of your hair they need moisture without it they will break and thats why when you comb your hair you have broken pieces on your shirt. Moisturize and seal your ends daily and in 4 months I feel you will see a change. I tried to answer everything I would want to know if looking at this product if you have any questions or comments feel free to ask or state and I will try my best to help all. I did receive my product within the timeframe given it is a huge bottle(160z) should last a good 5 to 7 months and it smells like coconut.

Same as ovation?
By H. Szabo
I got ovation's cell therapy treatment and one bottle costs $50. (I think it has less ounces than the Mega-Tek bottle too) I can say after using Ovation, I don't know if my hair grew faster but it did feel so silky and lustrous. I had a bottle of Mega-Tek that I got awhile ago and when I came up on it again, I decided to use it and compare it with Ovation. To my surprise, they smell EXACTLY the same. Coincidence?? I will update my review again after I've been using this more. I didn't like mising oil's with Mega-Tek because it's just too hard to wash out of my hair and makes my hair oily. I have thin, normal to oily hair. My hair is not curly but not stick straight. I haven't noticed my hair falling out more than usual but also haven't noticed a decrease in shedding. My hair stopped shedding when I use Nioxin but Nioxin did not make my hair grow faster. I think everyone is different and should try different things. Don't take everyones word for it. My routine is to comb this product through my hair 2-3 times a week and leave it in for 15 minutes before taking a shower. I know it says to apply it on clean hair but when I read Ovations directions, it says you can comb it through your hair and leave it in for extended periods of time for better results. So that's what I'm doing. :)

I have a love hate thing with MegaTek. From the first time I used this product my hair has never been the same again. Like two years ago or so, I purchased this product after reading reviews and going on YT to see results. My hair is very thin, I'm black Hispanic so my hair is kind of crazy. On the front my hair is straight and on the back is curly and brittle. The first time I used this product, my hair got instantly thick on the back. I started shedding like crazy. I moisturized and moisturized and nothing. I've tried everything to slow down the shedding but after two years, I'm still shedding like a dog. Yes, it grew my hair past my shoulders but I shed like crazy and my edges are breaking. Thank God I have lots of edges. As of now, I'm not purchasing again until I can figure out how to stop the shedding.
