After watching a few YouTube videos about Silk Elements Megasilk Olive Moisturizing Treatment I decided to try it out. I've been using it on and off for about 4 months because I wasn't sure if I really liked it or not. The packaging states that it is supposed to condition, strengthen, soften and restore moisture from the inside out. Its deep conditioning properties are supposed to reduce tangles, while giving the hair a healthier look, intense shine, and manageability without product build up.
For me the product does most of what it says. My hair felt softer, conditioned and very moisturized, I know this may sound strange, but the issue I have with this product is the over powering smell and my scalp seemed to itch like crazy after using it. Now the smell is a nice smell and it's what attracted me to the product in the first place. I thought it would be great if my hair smelled like this after use, but it was too much. It's so strong it gives me a headache while it's on my hair. I also noticed that my scalp was itching after rinsing the product out. I'm pretty sure it's the olive oil because I usually have this problem if I use olive oil on my hair.
However, I decided not to give up on this product completely....I've been using it mixed with oils for my prepoos. It seems to work better for me and the smell dies down after I continue with my regular wash day routine. No money is wasted here because I actually got this product for free with the purchase of $15 worth of hair supplies from Sally's. If you've used this product please let me know your thoughts on it.
Until next time~be blessed!
Blessed Tresses :-)
