Product review: Profectiv mega growth daily leave-in strengthener

image

There comes a time when your natural hair outgrows your staple products. I didn’t realise this until recently. Some of my products just weren’t working anymore. My two-year old staples became complacent. So, the search began for new products. The first thing I needed to change was my leave-in conditioner. It was a tad difficult getting one because I didn’t want to throw money away in the name of trial and error. At the same time, I needed a good leave-in. Anyways, I got one and have been using it for a while so, as usual it’s due for a review.

First Impressions
– It’s has a creamy consistency that’s just right.
– It’s well packaged in a tub that allows for easy usage
– This is obviously a protein leave-in.
– The price/quality ratio is good enough as it can last for a long time.

Product Promise
Infuses an ultra-protective blend of natural oils and conditioning proteins that strengthen hair deep inside for stronger, longer, healthier, looking hair. Whatever your texture or hairstyle, Mega Growth defends against breakage, split-ends and dryness by helping: strengthen hair deep inside, protect against styling stresses and chemical damage, detangle, soften and silken hair.

So much product promise.

How I Used
The first time I used it, I applied it on dry hair. Subsequently, I used it on wash days as the L in the LOC method.

Thoughts?
This is such a packed leave-in. But I was in search of a leave-in that would keep my hair moisturized for a few days and this didn’t cut it. My hair was dry by the next day. I have a feeling it’s not the fault of the leave-in, but my dry hair which requires daily moisturizing. In meantime, I love the creamy consistency. It’s perfect. Then again, it says daily leave-in strengthener. Maybe I’ve been doing things wrong but I don’t really like the idea of applying leave-in daily in order to avoid build-up.

Verdict
This is definitely a good investment for daily/weekly usage. Will I be repurchasing? I’m not sure. I’ve a feeling I’ll be bored by the time I’m done with this tub.
